    It's actually pretty funny how quickly they expected entire cityscapes to be replaced.

    Back then people had hopes that the future would actually be different.

    Looks nice, a little worried because of the Frontier fiasco, but looking good so far.

    Also hoping that they use Fallout New Vegas's system instead of Fallout 4's.

    I think it's not to far-fetched that London is mostly intact. A big theme in this seems to be the Gentry faction descended from the original British upper class who even have their own "Queen" (probably not real, or secretly an AI, or head in a pickle jar, ect). I wouldn't be surprised if there's some Mr House-style explanation for it involving them. Plus, IIRC only the US and China initiated attacks and caught eachother unprepared, with the rest of the world reflexively firing their warheads after, so there's a lot more warning and probably less damage, AND the whole of Europe is probably a lot more wary of imminent nuclear holocaust after the Resource Wars and the bombing of Tel Aviv.

    I'm a lot more worried about the knights in shining armour faction. From what I can see they're an all-British team, so I trust them a little more, but the first thing I thought when I saw the trailer is "God, they're not gonna do that American thing where we're all tea and King Arthurs, are they?". Fingers crossed there's a little more development to them and they're not just Bethesda-style quirky joke characters doing the BoS chivalrous order thing except in actual suits of armour instead of power armour.

    Beyond that, I'm optimistic. They seem to have some good ideas and understand what they're doing. At the very least, it'll have some actual original ideas instead of BoS, supermutants, deathclaws and radscorpions everywhere for some reason (and maybe caps too?).

    Looks interesting but I don't have a legit copy of Fallout 4 to try it with. I don't mind the change of setting as I have always been curious about the state of other locales in the Fallout world beyond America (as depicted by sources outside Bethesda) so I am fond of depictions of other places in the usual setting (like 1.5 being set in New Mexico etc.).

    Shame that they are using 4's system. They may need additional time to be able to learn how to implement skills back in the mod if they are not too familiar with it (I can't recall if other modders have figured out how to implement proper skill-checks in other Fallout 4 conversion mods).

    If it is depicting post-apocalyptic London, I do hope they avoid using typical British stereotypes and tropes which ends up coming across as what someone not from the UK thinks the British seem like (i.e. We Happy Few etc.).

    Fallout? There is nothing related to "Fallout" into that teaser, the only thing related to it is the engine, and Creation engine is full of bugs and other shit

    2237 and the UK is still a molty mess?

    Why do I feel they only have that date so they can put Tenpenny in and have him fuck off to America after a questline.

    I don't think Fallout can't be done outside of the US. But a UK Fallout, I think, should look towards Threads, Where the Wind Blows, and their own mix of punk, mods, rockers, and the like from the 50s and mixing it with the 80s onwards.

    The rule for any foreign Fallout should be - what did your nation think, in the 50s, its future would be like, then, what was it doing in the 80s, then add a hundred odd years of atomic energy and cold war politics ontop of that. Something like Ghana would be a left-leaning nation surrounded by a West African megacountry, for example, fighting off both Soviet and American influence to varying levels of success, and so on. Remember the movements then. Pan-nationalism, lots of balancing the powers, so on.

    By 2237 it's been 160 years since the bombs, and 180- years since the European Commonwealth fell apart. You'll think *Something* would come up by then, than some small government around a neighborhood.

    The Knights of Camelot thing is a neat idea. The Fifth Columnists...maybe? The UK had both a strong labour-left scene throughout the 20th century, and a strong right-base theme.

    London should absolutely be flattened or holey. I can get the appeal of landmarks. But I would imagine something more like 3. Some landmarks left, a lot of holes, a lot less intact and pristine urban environments. Nuked bases, lots of camps, lots of burnt out warzones. Especially since the UK is much closer to the USSR and fuck it lets say the French lob a few their way.

    I absolutely love the Fallout 4 modding community, they are really great at making their own out of what we are given, absolutely stoked for Fallout:London and Fallout:Miami to be released. True to Fallout lore or not I will definitely play them, can't wait to see their spin on London and Miami.
