Fallout: London The launch trailer was dropped yesterday and looks ridiculous. “DLC Resizing” by Bethesda Fallout 4Fallout: London takes the series into the post-apocalyptic world of London with a style that makes you wonder why it never happened before.
Everything you’d expect from a Fallout set in London is here: Big Ben, The Queen’s Guards (The Beefeaters) with armor and swords, and of course the famous red double-decker buses. Everything is crowned with tastefully Cockney stereotyped voiceover.
The trailer begins with Vera Lynn’s “We’ll Meet Again,” a song that was practically written for Fallout, even if they didn’t know it at the time…
This mode isn’t just an aesthetic overhaul for Fallout 4. Fallout: London is an overhaul. There is a lot of content here that is basically like a brand new game.
Seven new factions will be added with the full mode, including the oddly related Fifth Column (a group of populists who love Union Jack) and the funny Knights of Camelot, because what would apocalyptic London be without some people dressed up as Arthur’s heroes?
The trailer also offers numerous nods to World War I and II (you can even see archway balloons flying over the London skyline) that are sure to make this whole experience one of a kind.
Fallout: London includes a brand new set of characters and NPCs that are completely different from the original Fallout 4 story. None of the original factions appear in the situation, which makes sense, given that the world has fallen to pieces. There aren’t a lot of transatlantic flights, I think.
London is rich in pluckers when it comes to architecture and storytelling. Shots of wrecked colonial buildings and the twisted metal of falling planes look fantastic – so good, in fact, that it’s so surprising that no one has bothered to think of the events of Fallout in the UK before.
There is no planned release date for Fallout: London yet. The team consists of volunteers. Several updates have been posted here and there for a while, but this is the first proper glimpse of the mod in action.
Does this mean it’s about to expire? Honestly, maybe not. An adjustment of this scale is not something that happens overnight. Expect a little wait for this one, but by the looks of it, the wait will be worth it.
