Celebrated survival-horror sci-fi action jaunt, Chernobylite, has dropped its first bout of free post-release content, just in time for the seemingly now global Halloween period. Dubbed "Monster Hunt", the new content introduces new monsters (natch) to battle in the zone, with each harboring dangerous and challenging new abilities you've not yet encountered in the game.
In addition to the new free content, enthusiastic Chernobylites can also nab the "Autumn Dread Pack" which comes with new weapon skins to make you really standout among the unnatural anomalies.
How all this ties into the narrative, which is one of the most memorable and ambitious you’re likely to find in 2021, is wonderful. And it’s here where Chernobylite begins to transcend its core. It’s here where familiarity goes out the window and often you don’t really know where a decision might lead. Or what the ramifications could be down the line. Decisions that might upset someone, have a negligible effect, or drastically change the ‘ending’ you get to experience several hours later.
The branching path the story takes in Chernobylite is as impressive as those found on the trees still standing, unchanged, since the 1980s.
