Hey stalkers! It's time to share something special and important, both for you and for us. Having all the feedback we got from you after our teasers and making-ofs, we figured out that everybody wants the same: to explore the destroyed Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant and Pripyat ghost city as deeply as it's possible. Then we decided to expand these locations in the game comparing to the original concept and ask you for help in doing that. It's hard and dangerous task, assuming that we need to make some extra trips to the Exclusion Zone and scan more buildings and objects. Within the next few weeks, we'll be starting the Kickstarter campaign. It'll let you pre-order the game and buy many cool gifts, including our highly demanded Black Stalker mask, and will let us collect some extra funds to do the Chernobylite location expansions plus add some extra features that we were always dreaming of.

I loved Get Even, although I think its mixture of stealth and combat was a bit iffy. However it had amazing writing, incredibly good voice acting, an amazing soundtrack, and stellar presentation. I hope that Chernobylite takes the studio to new heights.

Hey stalkers!

Thanks to the Kickstarter campaign supported by so many of you, we spent the last few months working very hard to bring you into the Heart of Darkness - The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. The beginning of our game takes place there - this is where it all started, and this is where it all ends. Even if there's still a few months ahead to the release of Early Access version of the game on Steam, we wanted to share a small part of the experience with you. Leave us your comments and help us polish the game to become an ultimate Chernobyl experience for all of us. And anyway, to visit Chernobyl without leaving your home, add Chernobylite to your wishlist on Steam and stay tuned for more news about autumn's release of our game.
so early access inautumn i guess

Looking forward to it!

Even before the final result is ready (and I usually enjoy their "janky" games, so I don't think I'll be disappointed), I must say they've been a rare developer who knows how to handle a Kickstarter campaign, and treats backers respectfully.

The prices of each tier on their campaign were very reasonable ($35 got me pretty much everything I could think of, on top of a copy of the game: a demo, alpha access, a bonus game, an artbook, and several other extras; and naturally, they had cheaper tiers).
As soon as the campaign was over, they sent me a Steam key for a demo of the game, and a Steam key for a related VR project they have (Chernobyl VR Project), with no delays.
They keep doing informative updates (featuring everything from "on location" behind the scenes photos, in-game screenshots, ...), and backers with alpha access will very soon have access to an updated version of the content they've been showing at conventions.

Hats off to the team. (y)

I have this on my whistlist for a very long time, mainly because of the tags in the store page. I always thought that it's like a combination of STALKER and Fallout. I never knew that it's a survival horror. I guess off it goes from my whistlist.

Bear in mind that STALKER is very often classified as a survival horror series.

cool , sounds good
Early Access will offer its players an endless survival experience with 8 hours of storytelling and free-of-charge access to the upcoming updates adding new episodes, locations, characters, and equipment to the game. The story in Chernobylite is non-linear, unpredictable and fully dependent on player’s decisions, which leads to many possible endings. That means even if you finish the story in EA, you can relive it again many times and in many different ways.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“We don't have a definite timeframe yet but we're estimating it'll be something between 10 and 14 months.”

I do like the look of this game.

10-14 months away from release is a long time to wait.

[UWSL]We wanted to show you footage from Chernobyl captured by our drones. This video also includes in-game shots from Pripyat center - location that soon will be available for all players thanks to our incoming Megapatch called "Web of lies"![/UWSL]


A lot of players may ask "why do you need a weapon modification in Chernobylite?" The answer is simple: it's just a pure fun! There's a lot of options and there will be even more soon. So just look at this video and tell us: how do you like your weapons modified?


You've all waited for this! Black Stalker is here! We've just added A LOT of new content - armor, mines, traps, new features, new missions, new levels... But check it all out for yourselves!

All In! Games & The Farm 51 present our Exclusive Chernobylite gameplay reveal, including the Heist.


In Chernobylite, you play as Igor, a former employee of the Chernobyl Power Plant who returns to the Exclusion Zone to investigate the mysterious disappearance of his fiancee, Tatiana, 30 years prior. In the Zone, time is not a simple, linear matter. You’ll have to make choices that will affect your ultimate fate—even changing the past. Will you make the right decisions? Will they lead you to Tatiana?




Stalkers, the long-awaited news has arrived—Chernobylite will be fully released for PC on July 28 (Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store)! PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will come later in the summer of 2021.

I'm rather surprised by the console versions having no ETA, since their marketing up to this point kinda implied the console versions would be releasing when the game hit 1.0.

If I had to guess why consoles are coming later in the year, it's probably because the game is still running a bit rough on consoles. If this is wobbly Series S footage (from a closed console beta apparently), I can only imagine how it runs on One S.

The game runs fantastically on PC, fortunately.
