The dust may have blown over from Gamescom 2019 but The Farm 51 is now ready to share what it was busy showing folks on the show-floor. An extensive gameplay segment from Chernobylite has been revealed, presenting a pre-alpha look at exploring the gigantic Chernobyl nuclear power plant itself.

As a result of the Kickstarter funding, The Farm 51 has been busy over the last few months constructing a mammoth-scale version of Chernobyl. It’s here where Chernobylite both begins and ends, the so-called ‘Heart of Darkness’ of the greatest nuclear power disaster of all time.

“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,” wrote The Farm 51.

The end result is 17 minutes of gameplay plucked straight from an early portion of Chernobylite. It’s been built using Unreal Engine 4 and, while the animations leave a little to be desire, the photogrammetry technology does mean some stunningly realistic environments have been built. There’s a lot of STALKER DNA in here as well, including an explorable Chernobyl exclusion zone, non-linear narrative and systems-based changes such as altering weather, time of day, and even supernatural horrors.

Chernobylite is currently planned to launch through Steam Early Access in Autumn 2019.

looks cool but obviously needs work. Reminds me of a crossbreed between singularity and stalker.

I found the movement of the characters very robotic, but because it is a pre-alpha demo, it will probably be improved.


I like the mood. Sounds like a spiritual successor to S.T.A.L.K.E.R

It is a reference to the facts that followed the reactor explosion in 1986.


Both the series and the game were inspired by real facts. Similarities are inevitable.

The first time i've heard russian VO worse than what it probably woulda have sounded in english or perhaps the dialouge is just cringy and written by someone who watched too many hollywood movies. Real shame i always prefered Russian VO in metro it was so much better than the english one as they were just doing

a russian accent VO which was lame. I hope they clean that up but it does look alright a lot of rough edges they even threw in the 3,6 meme cause of course they had to do that LOL. After it gets cleaned up with some proper russian VO id give it a try personally i hope it's got good horror moments in it though :P
