Fallout 4 Updates: A group of modders has released a closed beta for Fallout 4’s translation of one of Fallout 3’s DLC campaigns. Point Lookout is the fourth piece of Fallout 3’s DLC campaigns, which translates a swampland area on the coast of Maryland over to the franchise’s post-nuclear wasteland.
This area is notable in the universe for not suffering the harsh repercussions of the atom bomb. But it has instead suffered from decades of abandonment from most of humanity.
After having worked for many years on Fallout 4: The Capital Wasteland, the developers are now going to release their first full piece of content to the players of Fallout 4.
Initially, this game will release as standalone content meant to bolt onto Fallout 4’s main campaign. It will let the Sole Survivor explore the area in an alternate timeframe, from what was depicted in Fallout 3.
Not only this, but the DLC will also come alongside the planned full remake of Fallout 3 in the Fallout 4 engine. For now, the mod is only proof of the concept, and it will translate the smallest piece of Fallout 3 over to the engine to show how compatible the two games really are.
Fallout 4 DLC Looks
As it was seen in the gameplay video by Youtuber JuiceHead, the whole of the Maryland Swamp is now available in Fallout 4’s engine. The dialogues are restored to the levels of Fallout 3.
There are many choices and more paths to follow this time. This game looks as if it is providing the best of both worlds, as there is enhanced looting and the previews of Fallout 4’s items.
The only thing we find missing here is the implementation of voice acting, which has only been partially implemented as of now. The team has planned to re-record the entire script for adding to the mod before it comes out of beta.
Fallout, as a franchise has always been open to all sorts of mods. While Fallout 76 continues to add more new content to its own version of the wasteland, the prospect of a new game seems a bit unlikely in the immediate future.
Developer Bethesda Games Studios is working very hard on Starfield, which is a sci-fi RPG that has been the company’s first new IP since it took on the Fallout games in the Xbox 360 generation. Until a new developer from Microsoft’s house steps up to the place, the Fallout franchise will be in stasis for a while outside of these player-made mods.
