Explore Chernobyl From The Safety Of Your Couch

Illustration for article titled Explore Chernobyl From The Safety Of Your Couch

Polish game studio The Farm 51—who are in possession of some very exciting graphics tech—are working on a virtual reality experience that will let users explore the ruined nuclear power plant at Chernobyl, along with the abandoned, nearby town of Pripyat.


Having scanned huge swathes of the area and recreated them in a 3D space, The Chernobyl VR Project will let users walk around and check out a place that’s been off-limits to most following its evacuation in 1986.

Players will be in the shoes of a documentary crew. Seeing as there are guns in the trailer below, hopefully you won’t have to spend half the time sneaking around in the grass.


The Farm 51 are looking at releasing the project on “multiple VR headsets, including Oculus, PlayStation VR, Vive or Samsung Gear VR.”
