Being back in the wasteland never felt so good

Beloved by fans, Fallout is one of the few games to make a successful leap into a miniseries.

03 June 2024

On October 23, 2077, thousands of nuclear bombs fall on the United States, turning the country into a wasteland. Those with the financial means escape to live in high-tech vaults – underground bunkers scattered across the country designed by Vault-Tec under contract from the government. Vault dwellers continue with their day-to-day lives, hoping that one day, they’ll be able to repopulate the surface. Above ground, meanwhile, there are post-apocalyptic factions fighting over what’s left of the world as well as mutated animals, irradiated monsters and robots – oh my!

It may not sound endearing, but there’s something intoxicating about Fallout’s retro-futuristic game world. Influenced by the post-war culture of 1950s US, Fallout reimagines what people thought a nuclear-powered future would be like. The game’s iconic ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s soundtrack provides a quirky, yet comforting, atmosphere as you hack and slash your way across the dilapidated country.
