Chernobylite is a survival action game with several horror and sci-fi elements mixed in. The game is set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone where the town of Pripyat, Ukraine, is located in. Developer The Farm 51 painstakingly 3D-scanned and recreated these locations to provide a more authentic feel. Given that your journey takes place in a ghost town and an irradiated wasteland, you’ll need to survive and thrive.
Moreover, Chernobylite‘s sci-fi horror elements lead to weird and grotesque sights as the main character, Igor Khymynyuk, attempts to discover what happened to his fiancée Tatyana. Here’s our Chernobylite guides and features hub to help you out.
