The Farm 51 Is Trying to Finish the Console Edition of CHERNOBYLITE as Soon as Possible
The Farm 51 is seemingly getting ready to talk more about the future of their survival game Chernobylite, and it sounds like both PC and console players should keep an eye on the Get Even studio's next big thing.
During a recent Q&A session, the Polish developer and publisher officially confirmed that the PC version of Chernobylite is almost here, with its already announced console ports arriving in the not too distant future.
According to The Farm, they have always been "designing and developing the game toward both PC and console experience, and the first console builds of the game have been tested more than a year ago."
"But still, we’re a small team and it’s impossible for us to work full-time on several versions at the same time," The Farm added. "Especially when there are two generations of consoles in scope and even 5 platforms being considered as a target for releases. So the answer here is simple: we have the PC premiere just around the corner. After that, we want to appear on consoles as soon as possible. And we hope to be able to share the details about the upcoming console versions by the end of this year."
Although the Gliwice-based company's ambitious take on STALKER probably won't get a traditional online component (it's worth remembering that The Farm is also working on their first battle royale game, World War 3), the team is thinking about co-op "real hard." Sadly, it almost definitely won't be available at launch.
Considering that Chernobylite will finally leave Early Access in the very near future, it's safe to say that we will learn a whole lot more about The Farm's post-launch plans for their survival game in the coming weeks.
Chernobylite is a science-fiction survival horror experience, mixing the free exploration of its disturbing world with challenging combat, unique crafting, and non-linear storytelling. Try to survive and reveal the twisted secrets of Chernobyl in the 3D-scanned recreation of the real Exclusion Zone.
Chernobylite is available in Early Access on Steam and GOG; coming to PS4 and Xbox One at a later date.
