Changelog for Rev 20951 Patch (added 25 October 2019):

- We've added English Voice Over. The language of the voices can be changed in the game settings.
- Spanish language version has been added.
- The line about killing “single Russian” changed to non-offending.

Chernobylite Storms:
Bad balance combined with bugs caused that this element is identified by you with time limit. Our goal has never been to make a time limit, but only to let you feel the breath of your main nemesis - the Black Stalker - all the time. We are listening to your feedback on this element of the game. That is why we have made the following changes:
- Now you can build a Q-wave generator in the base, which makes storm less common.
- The Black Stalker is now much weaker, and its appearance time has been reduced from 2 minutes to 30 seconds. Its AI and operation is a prototype. Will change in the coming weeks
- The clock has been turned off. Now, to know when the storm comes you must observe the sky and changes in the world.

- Overall regardless of the settings, the game should work a few percents better.
- We've optimized the memory management method. This should resolve most sound issues and make levels load much faster. FPS drops will also be less frequent and less severe.
- We're working on Ultra settings. Although they are still a prototype, they should work much better on slightly weaker machines.

Retrospective branching (also called “new game plus”):
- Collected evidence should no longer disappear after players death
- Player perks should no longer disappear after his death

- Adrenaline can now be crafted in the base laboratory

- Fixed an issue where players could get stuck during training with Mikhail
- Due to numerous errors and crashes related to hacking, we decided to temporarily disable it.
- We've fixed a bug that allowed you to gain unlimited experience during the Tarakan quest
- Quest Unearthed documents should now be a bit easier to complete.
- Fixed an issue that prevents Unearthed documents from being completed during the next attempt
- We've fixed several issues that caused the marker to not always work properly during the mission in Pripyat.
- We've fixed a whole bunch of smaller bugs you have reported. Thanks!

Changelog for Rev 22077 Patch (added 28 November 2019)

Hey stalkers!

Assault rifle and weapon customization added, survival timeline expanded and storage limits removed (finally)!

Again, a lot of things happened during last days. As depicted in our monthly report last week, we’ve worked hard to fix the problems and bugs identified by the community, added a lot of improvements and increased the quality of the game itself. Now you can check the showcase of the most interesting features we've put into the game last month - they're available from today in our "Aftermath" Mega Patch!


- Added a new weapon, an assault rifle.
- Added a weapon upgrade system.
- Added a storage system for items in Player Base.
- Added 2 new craft tables. They can used to upgrade weapons.
- Assault rifle and ammunition for it can be created on crafting table.
- We have reworked quest "Meeting with Tarakan".


- We've added Czech and Ukrainian language support.
- New feature we added in recent weeks has been localized to all languages. If something is not working properly let us know.
- We corrected some disappearing lines that randomly could not appear during dialogue.


- Marker placed by player on the map should now work correctly.
- We've added descriptions that explain exactly what each difficulty setting is doing.
- Old hideout: Player should no longer fall below level when trying to use the staircase.

We've recently added a lot of the features you've been waiting for. Save system can't cope, because the differences in information from older revisions are too large ... We are working hard on this problem, but we are not sure if we can solve it and what the consequences will be. If you don't want to wait, start the game again. This should resolve the fatal error that may occur after this update. We apologize for this inconvenience :(

Hotfix changelog for Rev 22079 from Steam.

- Czech and Ukrainian language versions should now work correctly
- Shameful mistakes associated with UI in the Russian language have been mostly corrected.

Thank you all very much for sending us your logs and saves!

Many of you have had huge problems with fatal errors since the last patch. We've recently added a lot of the features you've been waiting for. Save system can't cope, because the differences in information from older revisions are too large ...

Changelog for Rev 22770 (added 19 Dezember 2019)

Mega Patch - Red Forest


Most of you are thinking about Christmas and presents, and we prepared something special for you as well! Just as promised in the Roadmap, we would like to introduce Red Forest Mega Patch! Merry Christmas everyone! ;) Have a look on what you may find in the update below.

Behold, Red Forest is here!

The last weeks were devoted mainly to the new location called “Red Forest”. We’ve been teasing you with screenshots for some time, and now the moment has come! The gates are now open and you can explore the place yourselves. We hope you like it!

Changes in the Base

Feeding system redesigned

We received a lot of feedback regarding the feeding system, that’s why we decided to redesign it completely. Thanks to you we knew what to change so now the system should be more intuitive and transparent. Let us know what you think of it!

Storage changes

Weapon cabinet and Pantry have a visual representation of the objects stored in it. Now you can see your things inside them.

Free Play Mode

As mentioned in our last Weekly Report, we introduced the Free Play Mode which will allow you to choose any location in a selected weather configuration. You will also be able to choose from the missions available in that location, turn random events on or off or even start the game with all available weapons and skills!

Important: After the day ends, the game will automatically return to the main manu, so treat this mode as a test field for you.

Framerate improvements

We kept on working on optimization and we’re consequently moving forward! Players with lower PC specs should notice a significant improvement in framerate. We hope this will make the game more enjoyable for you.

Lots of fixes!

- Fixed problems with water visualisation
- Fixed problem with Sashko accomplishing his task before being assigned to it
- Various fatal errors are now fixed. Thank you for your reports and keep on sending us your logs and saves!
- Fixed problems with item storage in the base.
- Fixed error with weapon upgrade display in other languages than English.

Changelog for Rev 24000 - Rifle mods, new quests and storage hotfix (added 6 February 2020)

Changelog for Chernobylite Megaupdate #3 - “Old Friend” Changelog (5 February 2020):

Hello guys, behold, our first of many story-related updates is finally live! “Old Friend” is the biggest update we’ve prepared so far. There will be many new quests, dozens of events, quite a lot of improvements and accessories for weapon crafting. All this sprinkled with many fixes, visible optimization and redesigns of those elements, which you had objections to.
Today, Chernobylite is about 50% bigger than at the launch. We hope that those players who put our game aside in the last couple of months will give it another try and will like what they see. We’re perfectly aware that we still have a long way ahead of us filled with lots and lots of mega patches until the game is finished. But we really feel that after those very difficult months we’re heading towards the end holding our heads high and we hope you will walk with us along the way.


Quests added:
- New quest “Old Friend” (new chain - Georgiy).
- New quest “Power Plant’s Plans” (part of Georgiy chain).
- New quest “Secret Storage” (part of Olivier chain).
- New quest “Hermit” (part of Mikhail chain).
- New quest “Big Fish” (part of Mikhail chain).

- Events: Pripyat port has been filled with events.
- Events: Kopachi has been filled with events.
- Combat: Soldiers now fire more often. No-hit effects are visible in the environment.
- AI: Black Stalker can now be defeated in battle and driven out of the level.
- AI: Appearance of the Black Stalker is also associated with time anomalies. Igor and - Black Stalker move normally, and the rest of the world stops.
- Crafting: Added an Assault Rifle upgrade system.
- Crafting: Added a new crafting table. It can be used to upgrade the assault rifle.
- Difficulty: There will be far fewer opponents on easy and very easy mode. This should significantly facilitate the gameplay of those for whom Chernobylite was annoyingly difficult.
- A few lootable containers added on all levels.

- Fixed the Level of Details and stuck spots
- Fixed FOV values causing Shotgun and AK to look badly
- Fixed various bugs with Storage Units

- The levels should load significantly faster.
- Time spent in Hawking Tunnels should be significantly reduced.
- We are currently working on optimizing the CPU. The overall game performance should be better.
- Problems with the Moscow Eye performance should be significantly reduced. The level can still have problems, but we're on track to fix them.

Adrenaline Redesign
- Chernobylite from the beginning was to be a difficult game with elements that need to be repeated and mastered. Unfortunately, in some places of the game we have clearly exaggerated. Players often (also through no fault of their own, but due to EA errors) fail their mission, and are forced to perform it again, without the possibility of using alternative methods available only after the next pass. To limit this situation and make more players have access to new content, we modified the way adrenaline works. Now its use is not associated with mission failures, and additionally gives a special power-up that should help you get out of a difficult situation.

Day limit
- Time loop in our game is very important - it allows you to make other choices in missions, unlock new companions, or discover new secrets by alternate memories. A small limit allows you to focus on the plot and quickly correct your mistakes. Bigger will let you focus more on survival and team. How to reconcile these two approaches? The easiest way is to give you a choice - now when starting a new game you can choose how many days a single time loop will take.

Standalone installers were never updated to this version, instead they were updated from 23213 directly to 24000 (changelog above), but it's reasonable to assume that the latest GOG update is cumulative.

- Weapon modification should now be much more readable. While upgrading weapons, statistics are now displayed in the way that dynamically respond to applied upgrades.

- In the Journal, new graphics to skills are added. Now everything should be much more pleasing to the eye.

- Inventory quality of life improvement. You don't have to click on it to see the item description anymore, just move the cursor on it.
- We have optimized the operation of videos, we also discarded old prototypes. Thanks to this the build should be almost a gigabyte smaller.


- We added voice system to AI soldiers. Now they should respond verbally to the player's actions. This prototype may not work very well yet, and VOs are placeholders.
- The opponents should behave much better when player disappears from their view. They no longer use suicide rush and don't shoot everything around them blindly.
- We've improved the opponents' threat meter. Now opponents react more dynamically to his acquisition.

- We eliminated a bug in the path system that caused frequent game crashes.


- The problem generating crashes in Free Play mode is fixed.
- We detected an error that caused some data to remain in memory despite starting a new game.It was probably responsible for all very rare and difficult replication errors, such as a broken radiation gate or a disappearing portal generator.
- The problem with objects jumping between storage should no longer occur. Only new storage will work properly! If you don't want to start a new game, then demolish the old and create a new one. Thanks to everyone who overwhelm us with all storage problems.

If you have significantly modified the game settings (such as advanced graphics options or key mapping), then you will have to do it again.
- There have been problems with the Moscow Eye for a long time. This was our first level and object of many tests. To significantly increase its efficiency, we decided to build it again. Not everything is finished yet, some places may be bugged or look ugly, but the level itself works MUCH better than before. We will continue to work on improving its quality.

Changelog for Major Patch - Players’ Feedback Pass 1 from Steam
Although we treat this patch as a standard "major" one, I am convinced that for many of you it will be just as important as a Mega Patch. Unfortunately, we did not translate everything into all languages. Expect this in the next patches.


- The Fractal timeline has been added to the game. You can read more about it in the previous weekly report.
- All Igor's companions now have a "relationship factor" that changes it relation to the player’s decisions. This factor will be very important in the future.
- The "Old documents" quest now has a choice that affects companions and the game world.
- The "Meeting with Tarakan" quest now has additional consequences in "A few things from an old hideout" and has an influence on the game world.
- The "A few things from an old hideout" quest now has a choice that can affect your companions.
- The consequences of the decision from "Hacking into NAR servers" mission in "Mikhail in trouble" quest have been rebuilt in order not to be as unambiguously binary as before.
- The "Hermit" quest now has a choice that affects companions.
- The "Power plant’s plans" quest now has a choice that affects companions and the game world. Keep in mind that the prison is not finished yet, so the consequences of one of the choices may not be very clear at this time.
- The Level Selector has been heavily designed due to the feedback we received from players. There still may be small bugs that we'll fix in the following patches.
- Now while leaning, Igor will more realistically twist his weapon
- For people who do not like excessive brutality - Gore System can be turned off in the game menu.


- We've improved some of the Gore System components - blood should now display properly on different surfaces, and cardboard should look better
- Maps should now clearly indicate the area in which the player can move. They should also have more detail and be clearer.
- A lot of minor location corrections. Of course there are still a lot of mistakes and we will work on them.
- Fixed place where soldiers could shoot you through the walls (thanks to @ARcher and @nox from the Steam Forums)
- Fixed place where you could fall under the map on Kopachi (thanks to @hmasi and @SunBeam from Steam Forums)


- Opponents should notice Igor so easily when they find another soldier's body.
- Shot particle will no longer obstruct the entire screen when firing a rifle with a scope.
- During takedown, the soldier's threat indicator will no longer be visible.
- Now soldiers should correctly stop searching for a player when he disappears from their sight for a long time.
Changelog for Mega Patch #4 - “Web of Lies” from Steam
Kept you waiting, huh?

Content Additions:

- Added a new level: Pripyat Central. You will visit Lenin Square, the famous amusement park and several nearby buildings, such as Energetik or Polissya hotel
- Added a new level: Fractal World “Web of Lies”. It is the conclusion of a new investigation on the board.
- A new story character "Olga" has been added. Olga can be recruited to the base, sent on missions and learned new skills from her.
- New quest “Some excuses” (part of Georgiy chain).
- New quest “Hardware for real men” (part of Sashko chain).
- New quest “Checkpoint assault” (part of Sashko chain).
- New quest “A voice in the woods” (new chain - Olga).
- Red Forest has been filled with several new events

Technology improvements:

- Chernobylite now supports DirectX 12. If you have a compatible graphics card, this should have a very positive effect on framerate. Especially AMD card users.
- Thanks to cooperation with AMD, we've added FidelityFX features to the game. Activating CAS should allow you to play at a lower resolution or lower "resolution scale" while maintaining very high image quality. You can also improve the quality of the game, with virtually no effect on performance. Try it, our testers are delighted! FidelityFX works on all graphics cards, regardless of the manufacturer.


- Many of you complain about the lack of VO in the game, which for financial reasons we are not recording right now. So we've added a system that replaces all missing VOs with a suitably processed and personalized voice creation, so that the dialogues are at least reasonably indicated. For people who do not speak Russian, at the same time using Russian VOs for the "climate" should be a quite optimal solution. The system can be turned off in options.
- We've improved MASS of things related to localization and UX, from interface to dialogs. Not everything is perfect yet, a lot of work ahead of us, but very many of you should feel a big improvement in this topic.
- You really liked the Gore system, so from now on it will also work on monsters. Enjoy tearing them to pieces.


- Death in prison should not cause you to lose all your equipment in the new game loop.
- Sashko should already train the player and start a conversation with Igor.
- Fixed exploit that allowed infinite use of specific items from Storage (Thanks for @Ne mutlu from Steam Forums)
- Fixed several collisions in first Fractal World (Thanks for @Ne mutlu from Steam Forums)

Changelog for Mega Patch #5 - “Black Stalker” (added 25 June 2020)

Galaxy updated (29 June 2020)
Offline-Installer updated (30 June 2020)
Content Additions:

- Added a new level: Prologue. Why did Igor come back to Chernobyl right now? How does he know about Chernobylite? Where does the portal generator come from? Prologue will answer all these questions.
- Added a new level: Fractal World “Black Stalker”. It is the conclusion of a new investigation on the board.
- New quest “Kozlov Killing” (part of Mikhail and Olga chain).
- New quest “Kozlov Kidnaping” (part of Tarakan and Saskho chain).
- Dozens of new items to build. Including many functional things you'll read about in "Improvements / Additions"

Technology improvements:

- We've added support for HDR. This is just the first iteration and not everything is perfect yet, but the game looks very interesting.
- Our interactive “Green fractal world” loading screen has met with huge criticism from you, mainly for technical reasons. We changed it to a more classic loading screens, while strongly optimizing their duration. In the future we will replace the green tunnels with special films that will expand the backstory of the game. For now, we've created a trial one at the beginning of the game.


- This is the thing you asked for probably the most often, and somehow we managed to keep it secret. Now you can build armor in the base. 3 types with 3 different types of inserts. They will be very useful for players who prefer fighting over stealth. This is the first iteration, so it requires light polishing and balance. Surprise!
- In base you can now build a "Microprocessor Recycler" that allows you to extract raw materials from items that you no longer need. You've been waiting a long time for this, right?
- Following your feedback, we've added building system outside of Igor's base. You can build special crafting stations, enemy traps and covers right on mission levels. Not everything works as it should yet, treat this functionality as experimental! We welcome your feedback.
- New melee animations for all weapons. In the future, melee damage will depend on the type of weapon and the upgrades used
- New animations for stealth takedown. Now, to make them quiet and without killing you have to undergo training with Olivier
- Now Igor can climb and jump over smaller obstacles. Movement should be smoother.
- Igor can now use dodge, just like soldiers do. Timed properly allows you to completely bypass damage from gunshot or monster hit
- We have improved the placeholders VO. Now their sound should be much less annoying, and whenever they appear, relevant information also appears


- Fixed a bug where you could get infinite amount of XP during Excuses quest.
- Fixed bug where good effects was shown in red and could mislead player.
- Fixed bug where you could fall into a basement at Red Forest and block yourself.
- Moved loot crate on Red Forest to more accessible place.
- Fixed AI of Shadows, they will no longer stay in one big group anywhere.
- Fixed floating grass on Kopachi Kindergarten.
- Redesigned mechanics of beds inside the base, now game will precisly point out who was missing his bunk and you won’t have to build more every time.
- Fixed savepoint on Tarakan's Hideout mission, now even if player dies during the mission it will properly execute next time.

Changelog for VERY Major Patch 30597-ship (7 August 2020)

Galaxy updated (10 August 2020)
Offline-Installer updated (18 August 2020)
We're more than halfway to the next mega patch. We thought "why shouldn't we give you some of its content today?". So here it is:

Technology improvements:

- Unreal Engine has been updated to the latest version. This means much more stable operation and removing many troublesome bugs.
- The game has been thoroughly optimized in many places. Expect even a 20% increase in FPS
- The game has been heavily optimized in terms of the required memory. Lots of textures should load faster and less noticeably. The game should look MUCH better at low settings.
- We've completely reworked the graphics options. They have a much greater impact on performance now, there are also a lot of new settings you asked for - like the ability to turn off motion blur or flares
- We cleaned up all the content of the game. Build is a good 6 GB lighter.
- We've added a crash reporter to help you report a game crash. It appears automatically after closing the game.
- We added Kopachi, Red Forest Pripyat Port and Central to the benchmark. Now you can thoroughly test the entire game. Warning! Benchmark is now really long, but I'm sure you will want to thoroughly test all the new settings.


- Major localization update for Czech, German, Hungarian, Polish and Russian.


- We've added a new monster - Chernohost. Its AI was created for fighting in the open space. It will replace the Borderer on the outdoors.
- 2 new items in the base: Infirmary Bed (allows to passively heal a wounded ally) and Decontamination Shower (increases radiation safety)
- We have added a new "heist" board. It will allow in future to lunch the final mission in the game.
- We have completely reworked the system of covers used by soldiers. Now they should use them better, nicer and more naturally.
- We have added the ability to build a station that allows you to swap weapon upgrades. Now you can modify your weapons anywhere in the game.
- When the player distributes food to allies, we have added a lot of new messages that tell you what and how it affects them. The base mechanics should be much clearer.
- We have improved the training costs, now better skills require more skill points
- We've slightly improved the player's dodge effectiveness
- We have added new icons on the level selector. Now it will be easier to determine what we gain from a given mission.
- We rebuilt the health system. Now consumables are added to the quick menu, and using them does not have an immediate effect - they trigger the appropriate animation. In other words, healing is more difficult, especially in combat.

Redesign, balance and feedback:

- We improved all dialogues throughout the scenario, many things were rebuilt and improved. The whole thing should now be more interesting and much more coherent.
- We've reworked the way the game works on day one. The player is not sent on any story mission. He can get to know the game mechanics better and calmly.
- We improved the distribution of resources on the levels according to your feedback. Now there should be fewer resources, but more in each individual unit.
- We have removed the limit of days from the game after which the next time loop begins. Since we introduced the "fractal timeline" to the game, it doesn't make much sense anymore. You can play endlessly, no explosion of the power plant will stop you anymore.
- After death, we start on the day we died, along with the same quests we had before we died. Thanks to this, you shouldn't have the feeling that the game "deleted your progress"
- We've completely rebuilt how often, how many and how fast monsters and soldiers appear. The initial missions should be fairly simple and more focused on exploration. With time and depending on the player's decision, there will be more and more monsters and enemies, and they will also become more difficult
- We have removed the limit a player has to complete story quests. We want you to be able to quietly devote yourself to exploration, side missions and side activities, and not just running at breakneck speed through the main plot
Space Time Distributor now reduces the amount of radiation on levels


- We fixed the bug that caused gardens to decreae comfort of the base, but didn't increase it.
- We have corrected the collision on Prypiat Port boat, player will no longer be able to stuck inside permanently.
- Changed material of glass on Prypiat Port, now it can be penetrated with any bullet.
- We fixed conversations with companions while being crouched, player will now obtain normal speed after dialogue.
- Added walls and collisions to the Kopachi Kindengraten bunker - player can no longer go Out of Bounds there nor see through the walls.
- We fixed crash on Prypiat Central when you entered tent with mission marker.
- Fixed an islands on timeline that caused player to got stuck there permanently.
- Fixed bug that allowed you to craft infinite amount of First Aid Kits and antirads.
