Spintires: Chernobyl is a DLC for the realistic Spintires truck driving simulator, in which we move to areas near Chernobyl in Ukraine contaminated with radiation from a nuclear reactor explosion in April 1986. It also introduces new vehicles and mechanics. The creation and release of this production is the responsibility of the independent studio Oovee Games (the creators of the basic version).
The Chernobyl nuclear disaster was one of the most famous events of the 1980s. On 26 April 1986, during a safety test, overheating and partial melting of the reactor core occurred. This led to a chemical explosion of hydrogen, resulting in partial destruction of the reactor cover and the release of irradiated graphite and uranium particles into the atmosphere. This forced the evacuation of people living in the area, including the nearby town of Prypiat. These events caused the deaths of at least several dozen people.
In Spintires: Chernobyl we have the opportunity to explore the reliably restored sites around the Chernobyl nuclear reactor at the title Chernobyl, including locations such as Lake Chernobyl, Red Forest and Pripyat. Places are contaminated with radiation. Our goal is to cut down the trees in this location. During the journey we can use two new vehicles: B-157 and B-505.
The add-on also offers access to the Geiger counter, which is important because checking the radiation level is crucial for the course of the game. We must hurry up to find the clipping sites as quickly as possible and avoid the most dangerous points, so that our vehicle does not get too damaged. In addition, we have access to a test area that allows us to check the vehicles.
In Spintires: Chernobyl we can play alone or with others in multiplayer online mode.
Spintires: Chernobyl does not make any significant changes to the graphics of the basic version of Spintires. However, the projects of locations and vehicles deserve attention - the creators made every effort to ensure that they correspond to their counterparts known from the real world.
