The Farm 51’s Chernobyl VR will be an educational yet interactive look at the aftermath of the disaster which effected over 500,000 people, and to mark the 30th anniversary of the disaster, a new interactive 360 degree trailer has been released.

Chernobyl VR will launch this June and will be compatible with multiple VR headsets, such as the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR, though initially it’ll launch on the Oculus Rift.

The VR experience is a unique project from The Farm 51 which allows players to take a look around the eerie remains of the Pripyat area which was heavily effected by the nuclear meltdown which took the lives of 31 people and effected multiple people years after.

The experience will have players explore the Exclusion Zone, a zone which is still a risky area for people to visit, while also offering an educational narrative about what happened 30 years ago.

Those who purchase the VR experience will also be able to directly help the victims of the disaster as The Farm 51 will donate a portion of the sales to charities. 20% of purchases at $19.99, 30% of purchases of $29.99, and 60% of purchases of $49.99.

Check out the unique 360 degree trailer above.
