‘Fallout 4’ fans create DLC-sized mod years after its release

Fallout: London is bringing vault-dwellers to a new wasteland along the streets of England’s capital in the year 2237 in this mod created by fans of the game.

“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,” said on the mod's official website.

The Fallout: London mod team describes the content as a continuation of the base game set 50 years after, putting it somewhere in-between the first and second game.

Fallout: London's trailer, which sounds like it was narrated by Jason Statham, details several different factions, new designs for characters and NPCs, and shows off locations including a war-torn Buckingham Palace and Big Ben.

As a complete overhaul of the base game, the team said that players should not expect any of the staples of the franchise.

"Vault-Tec is entirely an American company, thus it will have no presence in London. We will have a version of a vault, but it will be entirely different from that of Vault-Tec, except that it is a shelter, beneath the ground. So don’t expect Better Living, Underground. In a similar vein, there will likely be a British Counterpart of Vault Boy, in terms of a popular mascot that will make frequent appearances," said the team of modders.

Players will also be required to use a new and clean save file for the mod as most of the mechanics from the base game will be replaced with new mechanics.

Some of the assets of the DLC-sized mod are already available as stand-alone mods which can be downloaded from their website, fallout4london.com.

As of this writing there is still no release date for Fallout: London, however, when it is released it will only be available on PC as it is the only platform that supports mods and it would also require all of the existing DLCs for the base game.
