Krakow, Poland - June 23rd, 2021 - Video game publishers All in! Games and Perp Games are pleased to announce they have signed an agreement to bring a PlayStation 4 physical release of Chernobylite, the sci-fi survival horror RPG from independent Polish developer The Farm 51, to physical and digital retail stores.

Currently on Steam Early Access and GOG Games in Development, Chernobylite is scheduled to fully launch on PC (Steam, GOG, Epic Games Store) on 28th July 2021. The simultaneous launch of digital and physical versions of PlayStation 4 as well as the digital version of Xbox One is slated for late summer 2021.

Chernobylite is a science-fiction survival horror RPG, set in the hyper-realistic, 3D-scanned wasteland of Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone. You’ll take on the role of Igor, a physicist and ex-employee of the Chernobyl Power Plant, returning to Pripyat to investigate the mysterious disappearance of his fiancee, 30 years prior. Compete with a hostile military presence and other stalkers, face supernatural creatures as well as a harsh and unforgiving environment in your search to uncover the truth. Get ready for a thrilling adventure of survival, conspiracy, horror, love, and obsession. Will you survive your fears?

 
  • Stealth, Survival, & Combat - Survival in the Zone is not easy, and each day brings new challenges as your comrades die and supplies diminish.  Avoid detection with stealth takedowns or engage in open armed combat.  Danger lurks around every corner.  
  • Base Building & Crafting - Construct a base from which to plan your daily operations and excursions.  Utilize workstations to craft gadgets, traps, and weapons, or modify existing equipment to your needs. 
  • Resource & Team Management - Companions are key to your survival and the resolution of your journey.  Each day requires careful planning and assignment of resources and tasks to your comrades.  
  • Non-Linear Storytelling & Strategy - No playthrough is the same. The choices and  story are in your hands. Choose wisely whether to trust your comrades or not, use resources for survival or research, and to face conflicts or avoid them. The future is up to you.


“The Farm 51 have developed a truly beautiful Survival Horror RPG,” said Rob Edwards, Managing Director at Perp Games. “The hyper-realistic world of Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone is simply breathtaking in its realism and scope, add to this an astonishing depth of game-play and fans should expect to be blown away.”


“We are incredibly excited to announce our partnership with Perp Games, bringing the physical PlayStation 4 edition of Chernobylite alongside the digital console launch later this summer,” said Piotr Żygadło, CEO at All in! Games. “We want to offer as many options for players to get the game as we can, accommodating our community and new players alike.”


Chernobylite will also come to the Xbox Series X/S and to PlayStation 5. Stay tuned for more details. Chernobylite has been rated ‘M’ for Mature by the ESRB, and PEGI 18.
