Chernobylite's Year 1 Anniversary update is fantastic
The Farm 51 has released a new patch for Chernobylite, celebrating the game's first anniversary by releasing free DLC story content for the game alongside support for AMD's FSR 2.0 upscaling technology.
Content-wise, Chernobylite's year-1 anniversary update gives gamers free access to the game's "Chernobylite Short Story: The Arrival" DLC, which tells the story of Sashko Horobets, one of Igor's companions. This story will detail why Sashko entered the exclusion zone, and if he found what he was looking for.
Another headline feature of this new update is support for AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 (FSR 2.0) upscaling technology, a DirectX 12 only feature that adds four upscaling modes to the game. FSR 2.0 can be used to upscale Chernobylite from lower resolutions to higher resolutions, enabling higher performance levels at high resolutions, or higher resolution playback without a huge performance hit. FSR 2.0 is only available when Chernobylite is played in DirectX 12 mode, and Quality, Balanced, Performance, and Ultra Performance options are available to players.
On PC, Chernobylie already supports Nvidia's DLSS technology, and users of Nvidia's RTX series GPUs should stick to DLSS when using supported hardware. That said, FSR 2.0 is a great upscaling option for those using Non-Nvidia hardware, or Non-RTX Nvidia graphics cards (RTX 1080 Ti users rejoice).
