We are pleased to announce that the highly anticipated next-gen console version of Chernobylite will be released on April 21. Additionally, the date marks the release of the PC Enhanced Edition, the Blue Flames DLC, and a physical edition of Chernobylite for PS5 published by Perp Games.. The game won Indie DB’s ‘Indie of the Year’ Player’s Choice Award, was featured in Steam’s ‘Best of 2021’ list, and has no intention of slowing down in 2022. Based on Chernobylite’s roadmap, players can expect continuous game enhancements and more content updates throughout the year.

The upgrade to the next-gen version of Chernobylite and the PC Enhanced Edition will be available for owners of the game through a free update. Both updates will introduce ray tracing and will greatly improve the game’s already hyper-realistic visuals. The next-gen versions specifically will also add two new  graphic profiles: 4K (Dynamic) 30 FPS and 1080p (Ultra Details) 60 FPS and the PS5 update will additionally add features for DualSense Controllers such as advanced vibrations and adaptive triggers as well as compatibility with PlayStation’s Activity Card feature.

To make the day even more eventful, Blue Flames, the first of four scheduled content drops for 2022, will be released for all platforms. Blue Flames will offer a free content update, ‘Memories of You’; a new weapon, the Silent Assassin crossbow (pictured below); and a paid content pack. With ‘Memories of You’, players will learn more about Tatyana and Igor’s fateful backstory through new events and collectibles.
