New DLC and Update for Horror Game Chernobylite Goes Live

Those who are into the indie horror scene will already be familiar with The Farm 51’s post-apocalyptic release Chernobylite. With its mixed bag gameplay mechanics and stunning visuals, along with that much-needed scare factor, it was for many people one of the best horror games of 2021, up there with the likes of Resident Evil Village and Little Nightmares 2. As a result, the developer has been keeping the updates and improvements coming out, and now the latest paid DLC has just been released.


An accompanying trailer for the new content on the game’s Steam page shows what’s featured in the DLC, which is called “Season 2: Red Trees.” This pack adds some new skins to the game, which brings the “menacing Red Forest” into the player’s base of operations. On top of that, there’s also a free update that comes with a new story mission called “Ghost of the Past.” The trailer states that the new DLC will feature the recently implemented next gen visual upgrade for Chernobylite, an enhancement that went live a couple of months ago and, as is suggested, improves the already pretty stellar graphics of the game.

While working to add new ideas to its horror IP, The Farm 51 has also seen opportunities to do some good in the world. Back in March, the developer announced the launch of some Chernobylite charity DLC, with all the proceeds going towards humanitarian efforts that are helping those affected by the war in Ukraine. The pack contains some cosmetics, four wallpapers, two printable posters, and a thank-you card from the studio itself. For those interested in the charity DLC, it will be available until March 14, 2023.

For those who haven’t played the game yet, Chernobylite is an interesting horror experience similar to that of STALKER, in that both are set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The game also adds a number of other elements like survival, base building, and even some role-playing elements where players need to keep NPCs happy by rewarding them with extra rations.

In general, Chernobylite can be tricky to get into for beginners. Players expecting just a standard horror game may find the extra elements overwhelming in the early stages. Its visuals are very impressive, thanks to 3D-scanned environments taken from the real Exclusion Zone, and it has an interesting story. The addition of this latest DLC and free update will ensure the longevity of the game and means that now is a good time for those who haven’t to check out the game.

Chernobylite is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
