Fan-Mod Fallout: London Now Has a 2023 Release Window

Fallout London

Fallout: London, a fan-mod which relocates Fallout 4’s post-apocalyptic action to Britain, is set to arrive on PC next year.

Admittedly, by the time Fallout: London arrives, its post-apocalyptic world may actually be more hospitable than the post-Brexit hellscape the real-life country is turning into. But we’re still dying to get our hands on it, and have been ever since it was announced last year.

It’s a DLC-sized mod which means that a) it requires the original Fallout 4 and b) it won’t be as massive as that title. But it will sport a completely new landscape – a slice of post-apocalyptic London – new weapons, quests and more. What’s particularly interesting is that, as the FAQ points out, many of the trappings of Fallout 4 – Deathclaws, Vault-Tec Vaults etc, won’t have reached the United Kingdom’s shores.

The latest trailer, which you can view below, paints a gloomy but undeniably British picture of Fallout: London’s streets, complete with glimpses of several recognisable landmarks. There’s no news as to whether you’ll run into Feral Ghoul Queen Elizabeth, but with Zombi lacking a flesh-eating monarch, we’re hoping Fallout: London will deliver.

Fallout: London is being crafted by volunteers so it’s understandable that we don’t have a more precise date than 2023; people are giving their time up to work on this project. It’s set to arrive on PC and, in theory, it could be ported to the Xbox One/Series X|S. But given that the PlayStation 4 version of Fallout 4 only allows modders to use existing in-game assets, there’s no chance it’ll grace that platform.

You can find out more about Fallout: London from from the official site and follow the team on Twitter for further developments. And if you’re prepared to risk spoilers, there’s a fantastic in-depth Twitch interview to feast your eyes on.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
