The highly-anticipated fan-made mod, Fallout: London, based on Bethesda’s Fallout 4, is now set to release on April 23, 2024 – coinciding with St. George’s Day. Despite being content-complete, the development team has decided to extend the release date to ensure a more thorough testing process and address challenges faced by team members affected by conflict in their region.
Testing Challenges Prompt Release Date Adjustment
While the mod is content-complete, the team acknowledged that their testing process may not be as robust as desired. The decision to delay the release stems from challenges faced by the scripting team, with a significant number of members hailing from a conflict-affected region. This has affected the focus on the mod, prompting a delay to allow for comprehensive testing.
In a statement shared on social media, the team explained, “Only through a clever reorganization and reskilling of team members have we managed to catch up, but it has come at the cost of testing. Consequently, we’ve made the decision to exercise prudence and opt for a delay. This new date will not only allow us to finish ample testing but also aligns with the anticipation surrounding the Fallout TV series.”
Fallout: London – A DLC-sized Mod Expanding the Fallout Universe
Fallout: London is described as a DLC-sized mod for Fallout 4, offering players an opportunity to explore the post-apocalyptic landscape of London. Unlike previous titles in the series, Fallout: London ventures outside the American setting, introducing players to new cultures and delving into pre-war European history.
The mod’s unique setting allows for exploration of the class-structured society of pre-war Britain, offering a fresh perspective on the Fallout universe. As fans eagerly await the release, the extended testing period aims to ensure a polished and immersive experience for players diving into the unexplored realms of post-apocalyptic London.
Aligning with Fallout TV Series Anticipation
The adjusted release date, April 23, 2024, not only provides additional testing time but also aligns with the heightened anticipation surrounding the Fallout TV series. Fans of the Fallout franchise can now mark their calendars for a dual celebration – the release of the Fallout: London mod and the unfolding excitement of the Fallout TV series.
