There's been a fair bit of anticipation surrounding the release of sci-fi survival horror RPG Chernobylite on Xbox, and now it's finally available as of today, with the game retailing for a very reasonable £24.99 / $29.99 at launch.
The game sees you take on the role of Igor, a physicist and ex-employee of the Chernobyl Power Plant, returning to Pripyat to investigate the mysterious disappearance of his fiancee, 30 years prior. Featuring stealth, survival and combat, along with base building, crafting and resource management, you'll need to "choose wisely whether to trust your comrades or not, use resources for survival or research, and confront conflicts or evade them."
Chernobylite previously launched on PC and currently holds a 'Very Positive' rating on Steam and a Metacritic rating of 74 based on 47 reviews. The Xbox version doesn't have enough reviews yet, but seems to be getting similar ratings — with the caveats being some motion blur concerns and a few technical issues right now (crashes), and it's also limited to a low resolution and frame rate as the dedicated next-gen version is still in development.
Here's a bit of official blurb about the game along with a few images:
Chernobylite is a sci-fi survival horror RPG with challenging combat and a unique crafting mechanic. Set in the hyper-realistic, 3D-scanned wasteland of Chernobyl’s Exclusion Zone, explore a non-linear storyline in your search to uncover the truth.
