Here are the latest details, via The Farm 51:
Bringing Chernobylite to next-gen consoles will be possible thanks to the term-sheet The Farm 51 studio has just signed with All in! Games. Thanks to the cooperation, the game will get many more distribution channels (including streaming platforms) and will be professionally localized in more languages than originally planned. Before this happens, however, you can already enjoy another massive update that has just been added to the game. This Mega Patch is the penultimate one before the game’s content is complete, and here’s what you can expect from it:
Two New Quests to Complete
Dig deeper into either Olivier’s or Olga’s story. Or explore both to add new plot pieces for discovering Chernobylite’s mystery.
Two New Levels, and Additional Locations on the Already Existing Ones, to be Discovered
Fractal World “The Woman in the Red Dress” is the conclusion of a new investigation on the board, and “Stealing Adrianna’s technology” will especially be enjoyed by those of you who asked how Igor got his VR helmet. On top of that, you’ll be able to explore additional locations added to the levels you already know. So make sure to revisit them and find them all. Just remember – you’ll need one of the new “toys” for that.
And Yes, By “Toys” We Mean New Weapons!
Test either the Chernobylite Blaster or enjoy the Anti-Chernobylite Burner that will help you to access the already mentioned new locations. Warning! Don’t visit them unless you’re not ready for a whole load of new events, as we’ve added over 40 of them within all levels.
Get ready for a perceptible change in the way soldiers behave when patrolling and searching for you. But most importantly, beware of the Black Stalker, as fighting him now is a real challenge. Mark our words.
Check How Much of Your Feedback was Implemented in the Game
In short: you talked, we listened. And then added changes to the game, re-designed, iterated, and overall made sure that Chernobylite truly is a joint effort—it’ll be as much your game as it is ours. This means that, among other things, we’ve enlarged the base with an area that was previously flooded with water. We’ve also completely rebuilt the looting system. Now, what your opponent’s drop should be both more interesting and better suited for the challenge. Since you didn’t really like the possibility of building cover while exploring the Zone, we’ve replaced it with the possibility of building machines that have a global impact on the area. Following your request, we’ve also added the ability to toggle aim and crouch, as well as an alternative way to use the dodge ability. And that’s the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the number of changes this Mega Patch brings, so dive in HERE for the full changelog.

And here is an overview of the game itself:
