The Farm 51 Announces their Upcoming Survival Horror Game Chernobylite
Developer The Farm 51, announced their next project, Chernobylite, a survival horror game set inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The team said that they went to the famous exclusion zone gathering all data and materials required to make the ultimate survival horror experience of the Chernobyl catastrophe.
The Farm 51 said in a Facebook post:
April 26th, 1:23 AM Ukrainian time. Exactly at this date and time the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe has started. The melted core of the burning Reactor No. 4 mixed with the other chemical substances to create a highly radioactive material that hadn’t exist anywhere in the world besides Chernobyl.
And we’re going to tell you the story of Chernobylite: conspiracy, horror, survival, love, and obsession in a form of a video game.
But it’s just the beginning. We’re a game development team from Poland that has been spending a lot of time in Chernobyl Exclusion Zone gathering all data and materials required to make the ultimate survival horror experience of the Chernobyl catastrophe. We want to bring you a deep, emotional story, engaging survival and horror experience, and a visually stunning recreation of Chernobyl area achieved with detailed 3D scanning of rich game world, beautifully rendered in Unreal Engine 4.
Follow us if you would like to visit Chernobyl like you have never seen before. In the following months, apart from photos and movies we’ll be taking on our trips to Chernobyl Zone, showing materials from in-game environment and teasing the story and characters.
Keep us on your radar!”
