New Gameplay Footage Released For Chernobylite
It made an appearance at Gamescom 2019 with a brand new trailer. Rather than focus on the spooky sci-fi side of the story, it takes on a more human feel, setting up the player's objective to find their missing girlfriend in the hostile area around Chernobyl.
In case you haven't noticed, there's been a huge spike in interest in the infamous nuclear reactor disaster that hit the small Ukrainian town of Pripyat in 1986. Obviously, this was all thanks to the HBO/Sky miniseries Chernobyl, which has brought to life the horrors of the tragedy and become the highest rated TV show of all time in the process.
Chernobylite sees players take on the role of a physicist, who must scour the exclusion zone in search for his missing girlfriend, fighting off natural and supernatural threats along the way.
Developers The Farm 51 say the game will offer players 'free exploration of its disturbing world with challenging combat, unique crafting and non-linear storytelling'.

A synopsis of the game reads: "Craft your gear and weapons to protect yourself from the supernatural threats lurking in the zone. Decide what happens in the world around you. Ally or compete with other stalkers of the Chernobyl zone to survive. Each day brings new challenges.
"Plan your strategy carefully if you want to survive. Maintain your resolve and keep your wits about you - the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant is not what it once was. No one can foresee the horrors that may have befallen your beloved."
The Farm 51 announced recently that the game had more than doubled its Kickstarter fundraising goal, meaning they will be able to create a much larger open world than they had initially planned.
In order to recreate this open world as accurately as possible, the developers have actually visited the area on numerous occasions and 'taken thousands of pictures' using drones.
If the game turns out to be even half as captivating as the TV series, then we are in for a treat.
