Fifty Thousand People Used to Live Here: How Accurate is CoD4′s Chernobyl Level?
The Chernobyl level from Call of Duty 4 is already being called one of the greatest video game levels of all time; at the very least, it’s certainly the most memorable from the game. But it does raise one question: just how accurate is it to the area surrounding the real-life Chernobyl power plant? Apparently, quite a bit. The Above Domain has put together a photo tour of the town of Pripyat, Ukraine, where you guide the infamous Cpt. Price through an incredible sniping mission. If you’ve played through this particular level, then the photos they have will look eerily familiar. From the empty pool, to the abandoned bumper cars, to the towering ferris wheel; all were recreated in great detail for the game. It’s actually a little unsettling knowing that one of the creepier levels in the game is that closely tied to reality.
