Fallout London's latest video updates gamers on the mod's progress
The Fallout London team has released their Q1 2023 development update video, highlighting the progress that the team has made with the mod, while reconfirming that the mod is releasing later this year.
Fallout London is a total conversion mod for Fallout 4 that places players into England, showcasing the Fallout universe outside of the USA. Like America, nuclear war has decimated Europe, and out of the ashes of England have risen factions that include Knights, revolutionaries, and remnants of the Royal family and pre-war government.
In the video below, the Fallout London team have showcased many of their game's new environments, weapons, and artwork. Fallout London is not a simple rework of Fallout 4, it is a game that has been re-worked to make Fallout London distinctly British, taking inspiration from historical companies, weaponry, and organisations. While the game has its Fallout twist, don't expect Fallout London to be Fallout 4 with British accents. The Fallout London team have done an amazing job bringing Fallout London to life.
Currently, it looks like Bethesda Softworks plans to finish Starfield, then work on The Elder Scrolls VI, and then work on their next Fallout game. That means that we should not expect a new Fallout game anytime soon, and even then Bethesda's next Fallout game is unlikely to move to Britain. Fallout London is likely to be the closest that Fallout series ever gets to old blighty.
Fallout: London may not be an official game from Bethesda Softworks, but it has the trappings of what could be an interesting Fallout game, even if franchise staples like Vault-Tec being missing. There will be no Super Mutants, Deathclaws or other species that were developed through forced mutation in Fallout's version of the US. This is Fallout London, and it's nothing like the USA.
Fallout London contains new factions, new weapons, and different cultural outlook on the post-apocalyptic world. Here's what Fallout London's developers have to say about the game on their website.
Fallout: London is an ambitious, trail-blazing DLC-sized mod for Fallout 4, Bethesda Game Studios’ 2015 post-apocalyptic RPG. Fallout: London stands apart from its contemporaries and offers an entirely new experience: setting a Fallout game outside of the United States. True to its moniker, Fallout: London takes place IN London. From stuffy parliamentary aristocrats to a resurrection of the Knights of the Round Table to an uncompromising cult of revolutionaries (and more!), Fallout: London embodies the history and aesthetics of London and puts an unmistakably nuclear spin on the beloved city.
Fallout: London’s development is labor-intensive and involves a plethora of eclectic cross-discipline individuals, both at amateur and industry level. The team maintains a strong sense of professionalism and devotion to the craft. Everyone on the Fallout: London team shares a deep love of videogames, and most importantly, Fallout itself. Each member of the Fallout: London team is individually recruited for their contributions and talent in the realms of game design and modding.
Fallout London is now due to release sometime in 2023, which means that the game should release sometime within the next 9 months.
