‘Fallout’ now has a release date, courtesy of Amazon Prime Video.
The streaming service has announced that the video game adaptation will come out starting on April 12, 2024.
The news was released on October 23, ‘Fallout Day’, where, in-universe, the nuclear bombs dropped that ushered in the wasteland.
The announcement was accompanied by a short video, styled to look like an in-game Pip-Boy.
‘Fallout’ will star Walton Goggins in an undisclosed role. Accompanying him, also in unknown roles are Ella Purnell, Kyle MacLachlan, Xelia Mendes-Jones, and Aaron Moten.
In the ‘Fallout’ universe, a nuclear apocalypse caused the world to turn into a harsh wasteland.
Humanity survived thanks to underground bunkers and emerged to find the wastes populated with marauders, mutants, and several factions, such as the Brotherhood of Steel and the Institute.
‘Fallout’ will start in Vault 33, located in California.
The story will take place within the official canon of the ‘Fallout’ universe and games.
The first ‘Fallout’ game was released in 1997 and created by Interplay Entertainment.
Bethesda Softworks took over the franchise in 2008 and has since published first-person RPG games.
The last mainline ‘Fallout’ game to release was ‘Fallout 76’, a live service game that came out in 2018 to poor critical and fan reaction.
Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner will serve as executive producers, writers, and co-showrunners.
Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy executive produce via Kilter Films.
Athena Wickham of Kilter Films, Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios, and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks will also executive produce.
Amazon and Kilter Films produce in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks.
