Polish publisher Rebel has a new release scheduled for Essen this year: the 1-4 player competitive adventure game, Zona: The Secret of Chernobyl.
The players are Stalkers, scavengers in an alternate history Chernobyl, who race to traverse the radioactive area and reach the Power Plant sarcophagus. The sarcophagus only opens if the player has found two secrets from underground locations. Strange events and encounters with mutated creatures befall the heroes on the way, and dice rolling is the only way to survive in this hazardous environment. Time is also an enemy, as players have to reach their destination before the Final Emission.
How does the solo mode work? It is so far one of the secrets of the sarcophagus. We are waiting for more info to be revealed.
