The split release for Chernobylite is almost upon us with it fully hitting the PC on July 28th here with little knowledge on when it was going to hit the PS4 and Xbox One. Let alone when we will see the full next-gen version of the game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, but The Farm 51 is still working on all of that. What they seem to be wrapping up for Chernobylite shortly after the release next week is that we will have it on the older consoles on September 7th now. Yes, we have a release date for that version now so console gamers can try to dip their toes into the game here in short order too. Always great news even if it is a bit split more than some of us would have hoped for.
To go along with this new and small announcement, we have one more look at Chernobylite and how the team has taken scans of the actual Chernobyl site out there. They have taken a great amount of time to 3D scan it all and builds upon it for the story while keeping it as close to the real world side of it all more than anything. Some of it we have seen in the past, but it is a nice way to see how the wire meshes are laid over the real objects to see what is new and just for Chernobylite here. More or less, it looks like accents and then some textures to add to the horror and tone of t it all. It is still a huge selling point to have and look forward to for it all. Have a look and get excited too.
