Earlier this month, we got our first really good look at a huge – and hugely impressive – “DLC-sized” Fallout 4 mod on the way from a group of talented creators called Fallout: London. Featuring a map roughly the same size as the base game’s own Commonwealth, the mod is a post-apocalyptic, Fallout-style take on the UK capital – and now we’ve got a good look at even more content coming its way.
In a new Fallout: London ‘Second Quarter 2021 Progress’ video clip, the modding team gives us a whistle-stop tour of what it’s been cooking up for the upcoming creation recently, and it looks like there’s a whole lot. First up, we can expect some gruesome new beasties to haunt London’s streets – including one inspired by monsters that would have appeared in a non-released iteration of Fallout 3 – codenamed Van Buren – called the Gahenna, which the Fallout: London crew says have been adapted to fit Fallout: London.
Found near “the fracking disaster area of Croydon, they’re slightly larger than humans and appear to be made of black tar and shiny oil,” the video explains, with a penchant for melee attacks and toxic gas. Oh, and there’s a “screaming victim’s skull” lodged in a bulb where their heads should be. Shudder. Additionally, there are the “Thamesfolk” – people turned almost reptilian by the noxious Thames water over time – and their ‘pets’, which are some long-tailed and clawed creatures called the “Thames Hounds”, and more.
