The Zone invites you for Season 2 Red Trees – new, free content for Chernobylite already available.
The developer Farm 51 and the publisher All in! Games invite everyone to visit the Chernobyl exclusion zone and continue the ongoing support for Chernobylite, a survival horror set around the infamous nuclear power plant. Season 2 will allow players to discover more secrets about the dark setting of the game, learn previously unknown facts about the meltdown, and offer new game modes.
The largest free content drop in Season 2 Red Trees introduces a new VR set in Igor’s base. It will allow players to play a game inside the game, introducing a new, roguelike-inspired, mode – VR Games. Inside virtual reality Igor will traverse arenas of a fractal world with randomly generated weapons, skills, and enemies (including very challenging monsters). After death, the protagonist will return to the main game’s world keeping the earned experience points. At any moment in VR, he may be joined by a random companion. Relations with characters improved in the new game mode will transfer to the main story of Chernobylite as well.
Another addition in Season 2 is 6 new story missions. The Ghosts of the past expansion sees Tatyana manifesting in Igor’s dreams. This sets the protagonist on a journey to iconic locations in the Zone. Notes from former inhabitants and the narration of his loved ones will allow players to learn more about the past and the truth about what happened in Chernobyl.
Igor’s base will now also include a video game station. This element is part of a cosmetic Play its add-on, and atmospheric post-soviet looks will complement the player’s headquarters.
Apart from all the free content coming with Season 2, players will be able to purchase new base skins, as part of the Red Trees Pack. Inspired by Chernobyl’s infamous Red Forest, new cosmetics will add rusty leaves and a red glow, which will bring warmth to Igor’s companions and inspire them to fight in the harsh reality of the Zone.
