Fan-Made Fallout 76 Trailer Wows Bethesda

Wastelands and Pipboys and Deathclaws, oh my!

Bethesda has shared its amazement at a fan-made live-action concept trailer for the game developer’s post-apocalyptic MMO, Fallout 76.

The trailer in question was directed by Brain Curtin and features classic Fallout imagery for a fictional, non-existent potential live-action take on the story. From the 1950’s American Dream aesthetic to the Pip-Boy green text that pops up, Curtin and his team stay true to the Fallout franchise throughout despite having no official access to assets or permissions from the game’s makers.

And good sports that they are, Bethesda loved it, taking to Twitter to spread the word.

Curtin’s live-action trailer, which has a run-time of two-and-a-half minutes, packs in the references with armors from various Fallout games including that featured on the cover of Fallout: New Vegas and, of course, the power armor that is prevalent throughout the series. Additionally, fans can glimpse what appears to be a radioactive feral ghoul and, later on, a close-up of a Deathclaw, one of the most challenging mutant animals players face in the Fallout franchise.

The Fallout Franchise

The Fallout game series takes place after a nuclear world war has wiped out most of humanity. Some lucky souls were able to hunker down in underground vaults waiting out the radiation for generations. But radiation isn’t the only concern. Terrifying mutants roam the wastes and new factions battle for supremacy because, as any Fallout fan can tell you, ‘War, war never changes.’

One of the most iconic features of Fallout 76 and its single-player predecessors is the Pip-Boy, a device worn on the player character’s wrist that acts as a journal, GPS and radio while also monitoring vital signs. Of course, the Pip-Boy with its glowing green screen makes several appearances in the trailer which also cleverly includes includes dialogue from the game further adding to its credibility.

The game itself, Fallout 76, had a bumpy launch, with many fans disappointed by the utter lack of NPCs. However, updates and expansions have led to the game growing in popularity in the years since its release and Bethesda have promised that Fallout 5 will be their next project after The Elder Scrolls VI launches.

Meanwhile fans can also look forward to the Fallout TV series that Amazon Prime is currently producing alongside it’s eagerly awaited God of War live-action series.
