Fallout: London is a mod like no other. The simple act of calling this a mod is a huge understatement. Unsurprisingly, the fan-made project is set in a post-apocalyptic London and essentially functions as a Fallout DLC.
Despite being a fan project, Fallout: London has already garnered quite the following, including Fallout’s developer and publisher Bethesda. Just last week, Bethesda offered two of Fallout: London’s developers a spot on their team but one such creator has turned the opportunity down.
If you haven’t yet seen it, check out the incredible trailer for Fallout: London below.
Bethesda offered a position to Fallout: London project manager Dean ‘Prilladog’ Carter but instead of taking up the offer to work on Fallout 76, Carter has instead chosen to stick with the fan-made project.
In a statement posted to Twitter, the Fallout: London team wrote, “It is worth remembering that many people try and use large-scale mod projects like this for pure CV padding and routes into the industry. But some people like Dean do it truly for the community, for the team, for you. It isn't easy to turn down your life's dream to return to working on a project for free, so I've given him this mention as his selflessness and dedication to the team is something we should all appreciate."
A few days ago, it was confirmed that Fallout: London’s lead technical advisor Ryan ‘Ropiequet’ Johnson had accepted an offer from Bethesda to join them as an associate level designer. Thankfully, Johnson had known about his departure for some time and was able to prepare for the move so as not to impact Fallout: London’s development. The mod is currently scheduled to release in 2023.
