Developer All in! Games’ Chernobylite has been in Early Access for quite some time, and with its full Steam launch already locked in for next week, the game has always felt like a PC-first title. But those looking forward to its console launch will be pleased to know they won’t be waiting long for the game’s launch on PlayStation and Xbox platforms. Chernobylite’s console launch is now locked in for Sept. 7.
“With the PC launch right around the corner, we’re thrilled to reveal that we’ve locked in Chernobylite’s console release for this September,” said Piotr Żygadło, CEO at All in! Games. “Working on our first simultaneous physical release together with Perp Games has been a great experience so far and a huge milestone for All in! Games. We are confident that Chernobylite will be one of the most exciting indie games of 2021 and intend to continue to give it our full support.”
“It’s humbling to see how Chernobylite’s original concept, an interactive VR documentary, has become a full-blown video game, soon to be available across a variety of platforms,” said Wojciech Pazdur, Director of Development at The Farm 51. “We can’t wait for people to start exploring the hauntingly beautiful recreation of the real-world Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.”
Today’s announcement comes in tandem with a new trailer, which you can check out below.
If you’re not up to speed with Chernobylite, the game is a sci-fi survival horror experience taking place within the Chernobyl 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.
