The Zone of Exclusion refers to the containment area established around the derelict reactor #4 at the V.I. Lenin nuclear power plant in Chernobyl, Ukraine. The Zone encompasses long stretches of wilderness, including the Pripyat marshes, the Chernobyl village, and the nuclear power plant city, Pripyat.

In the context of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster the term "Zone of Exclusion" typically refers to the area around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant that has been cordoned off due to high levels of radiation and other dangers. This exclusion zone was established to restrict access and minimize human exposure to the radioactive fallout resulting from the 1986 disaster.

The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is a heavily contaminated area that includes the immediate vicinity of the Chernobyl power plant, as well as surrounding towns and villages. It serves as a buffer to prevent unauthorized access and protect people from the health risks associated with radiation exposure. The zone encompasses a significant area and is characterized by abandoned buildings, overgrown vegetation, and a haunting atmosphere.

In the game "Chernobylite," players explore this dangerous version of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, encountering mutated creatures, supernatural phenomena, and the remnants of a once-populated area now marked by the consequences of the nuclear disaster. The Zone of Exclusion in the game serves as a central setting for the player's survival and exploration challenges.
