The set for Amazon’s upcoming Fallout TV sequence appears fairly leaky, as a result of in the present day we obtained our first close-up have a look at the Bezos Empire’s tackle Fallout’s trademark energy armour. People, it is big.
Eagle-eyed observers on Reddit (opens in new tab) notice that the design of the armour within the photograph strongly resembles the T-60 energy armour that you just may keep in mind from Fallout 4 and 76. That implies that the aesthetic path of the sequence is being set by Bethesda’s east coast Fallouts, fairly than the western-flavoured video games of yore. Though I will go to my grave declaring not solely that New Vegas is the very best Fallout, however among the best video games of all time, I’ve to confess that Fallout 4 was a strikingly fairly factor certainly. Amazon may do so much worse than to take its visible cues from Bethesda on this one.
This is not the primary clandestine shot that is been smuggled off the Fallout set. Final week, we obtained a number of snaps that appear to point out the present’s designs for vault interiors and vault fits. Earlier than that, somebody stumbled upon a scene (opens in new tab) that was nearly actually a set from the present whereas out and about in Staten Island. Once more, to Amazon’s credit score all of them appeared very Fallout certainly, proper right down to the tailfins on the burnt-out, nuclear-powered vehicles.
The present is about to star Walton Goggins and Ella Purnell (opens in new tab), however there isn’t any phrase but on when it will be launched. Job listings counsel that capturing began someday across the finish of final month, with a realistic release window of 2024 (opens in new tab). Contemplating how polished the props and units look in these pictures, that looks like a reasonably correct guess.
I confess I am nonetheless a bit sceptical about this one. I really like Fallout 1 and New Vegas, however whereas the Bethesda video games are good enjoyable, I’ve by no means felt just like the writers of them have managed to get sufficient of a grip on the setting to say something actually fascinating with it. If the sequence finally ends up taking its plot cues from Fallout 4 and 76, I am unsure they will be capable to get me on board. I most likely will spend numerous time watching YouTube clips of individuals stomping round in energy armour, although.

In different Fallout information, Todd Howard just lately shocked the world by asserting that, sure, Fallout 5 will arrive one day (opens in new tab). It’s going to be after Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6, although, so there’s each chance that by the point it comes out it will simply be a mirror of our personal, real-life apocalyptic wasteland. Within the meantime, why not try what the PCG braintrust settled on as ‘the best Fallout to play today (opens in new tab)‘?
