Thanks to the backers, support, Chernobylite has been enriched with new locations, characters, and even additional game mechanics. On October 16th all the patiently awaiting gamers will have an amazing opportunity to explore the heart of darkness – a Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant itself, as well as terrifying environments of Kopachi kindergarten, the mysterious Eye of Moscow, and fragments of the abandoned city of Pripyat. Early Access will offer its players an endless survival experience with 8 hours of storytelling and free-of-charge access to the upcoming updates adding new episodes, locations, characters, and equipment to the game. The story in Chernobylite is non-linear, unpredictable, and fully dependent on the player’s decisions, which leads to many possible endings. That means even if you finish the story in Early Access, you can relive it again many times and in many different ways.
It’s also worth mentioning that on September 17th Chernobylite will run its Closed Alpha tests just for the Kickstarter backers. The testers will have a whole month to try the game, report bugs, leave their thoughts, ideas, and wishes about the further direction of the project.
Developers are hoping that the feedback gathered from gamers and a close interaction with their community at every stage of the production will direct further development in the right place, as happened before – and alpha tests as well as Early Access will help to shape the final version in the best possible way.
The full release is planned for the second half of 2020, so be sure to follow Chernobylite’s Steam and Discord to keep up with all the news and updates from the developers, who are always happy to engage in discussions with their fans. After the Steam release, the game will also appear on other PC digital distribution platforms.
