One of the greatest video game series of all time is getting the Hollywood treatment.
It seems Christmas has come early for fans of the Fallout series.
Fallout is a post-apocalyptic video game franchise spanning over 20 years on multiple platforms and consoles.
Its unique ‘atompunk retrofuturistic’ setting and US post-war era style have become synonymous with the gameplay millions have come to adore.
Amazon Prime has just dropped a brand new teaser trailer for their upcoming TV adaptation.
And it looks so, so good…
Let the Fallout fanfare begin!
The series will be released to Amazon Prime users next April.
It comes from executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of Westworld.
It stars Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins and more.
Amazon have couples the teaser with this tantalising description:
“Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have.
200 years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird and highly violent universe waiting for them.”
Fans are already feeling the hype
The two-minute teaser was released by Amazon on Saturday afternoon and already has the Fallout fanbase in a tizzy.
One user wrote under the YouTube trailer: “I’ve been a Fallout fan for 25 years and can’t be more excited! That people still care about this franchise after so many years says a lot about the Fallout community. Now we get a full on show!:
Another agreed: “LET’S GOOO!! I can’t put into words just HOW excited I am for this!!”
While a third commenter was slightly more cautious writing: “Actually looks promising! Don’t mess it up”
Fans face a four month wait before they’ll know for sure whether they did or did not in face “mess it up”, but early signs don’t look like the end of the world!
