Fallout: London — Everything We Know



Fallout London Concept Art

Bethesda Softworks’ Fallout 4 is on the verge of receiving its first fully-realized fan-made “game-sized” mod, which will come neatly packaged in none other than Fallout: London. That’s right — the United States are out of the picture, and the forever neglected boroughs of the Big Smoke are finally getting the attention they so rightfully deserve. So, if you had high hopes of catching old Vault Boy sporting the Union Jack colors, then you’ll be pleased to know that such an image is about to make it grand debut. And the best part is, it’ll be completely free, too.

So, what more do you need to know about the upcoming mod? Will there be a brand-new story to experience, or will it more or less feature a couple of new locations to explore and little else? Well, if you are interested in learning all there is to know about the forthcoming update, then be sure to read on. Here’s everything we can tell you about Fallout: London.

What Is Fallout: London?

Fallout: London is a “DLC-sized” mod for Bethesda Softworks’ Fallout 4, as well as a brand-new single-player experience that’ll take shape in the boroughs of “pre-war European history.”

“As a divergence from previous official titles in the series, Fallout: London is not set in America,” Team FOLON wrote in a ores release. “Visiting a totally new setting allows for us to explore totally new cultures which have not homogenized with their American counterparts. It also allows us to explore pre-war European history, and the effects the Resource Wars had on the class structured society of pre-war Britain.”

Going by the press release that the team put out a fair ways back, the upcoming mod will include an entirely new storyline to indulge in, as well as several iconic boroughs to explore and quest in. So, if you’re looking to scratch that one itch, in particular, then you’ll be glad to know that Team FOLON is, from the sounds of it, rustling up quite the scratching post.

Although Team FOLON hasn’t been able to siphon out any concrete plot points just yet, we do know for a fact that there will, if only just, be a story to the DLC. And while we don’t know exactly what sorts of events will take place in the city of London, we do know that it’ll feature “a resurrection of the Knights of the Round Table,” as well as an “uncompromising cult of revolutionaries.”

“True to its moniker, Fallout: London takes place IN London,” the game’s description reads in part. “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.” Sounds intriguing, for sure.

It goes without saying that, as far as gameplay travels, Fallout: London will feature the same basic mechanics as Fallout 4. To clear that up, that means players will be able to experience a post-nuclear campaign from a first-person perspective, as well as all the bells and whistles of a traditional Fallout title. So, for argument’s sake, let’s just call Fallout: London what it really is: a full-fat DLC for the base game, but with fewer US-based scenarios, and more gun-toting Brits and connections to the London Underground and what have you.

Fallout: London’s development is labour-intensive and involves a plethora of eclectic cross-discipline individuals, both at amateur and industry level,” Team FOLON explained in a press release. “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.”

Originally, Fallout: London was due to arrive at some point in 2022 or 2023. However, due to several of the team members coming from “a region affected by conflict,” the release date was eventually extended.

“To be candid, the main factor influencing this decision lies in the composition of our scripting team,” the developer explained in a social media post. “A significant portion of our team members come from a region affected by conflict which has understandably impacted their focus on the mod. As such, it caused us to fall behind schedule. Only through a clever reorganisation and reskilling of team members have we managed to catch up, but it has come as the cost of testing.”

Release Date, Platforms & Editions

According to the devs, Fallout: London will be launching on April 23, 2024, and will also be exclusive to PC. In other words, those who had hopes of catching it on Xbox and PlayStation won’t be able to play the game at any point during its initial release. Is this a permanent thing? Apparently so, yes; the creators mentioned in a press release that they have no immediate plans to bring the mod to consoles at any point in the foreseeable future. Sad times.
