Today has special significance in the world of Fallout, with October 23 being the day that the bombs fell and thermonuclear war broke out between the world's superpowers. When you look at it that way, it might not sound like a cause for celebration, but Bethesda has taken the opportunity to offer a Fallout Day Sale across storefronts like Steam and GOG.
With up to 80% discounts on games like Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, with the sales extending to the many bits of DLC that dropped post-launch - if you haven't played Fallout 4's Far Harbor or Nuka World expansions, now's the time - it's the perfect time to catch up on or jump into any of the many Fallout gaming experiences out there, which includes older titles like Fallout 2 and the iconic Fallout: New Vegas.
The biggest Fallout-related news of the day is definitely the word coming from Amazon, with confirmation that the highly-anticipated Fallout TV series will begin streaming on April 12, 2024.
The announcement doesn't feature a trailer-like look at the live-action adaptation of the iconic post-apocalyptic franchise but instead leans into the Vault Boy visual identity of the series to announce the release date. Here's hoping that this announcement means we'll get teasers and trailers sometime soon.
Amazon's Fallout adaptation, created in partnership with Bethesda, is set to star Ella Purnell (Yellowjackets), Walton Goggins (Justified), Michael Emerson (Lost), Zach Cherry (Severance), and Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks). Behind the camera, the production is being led by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's Kilter Films, who brought us the critically acclaimed Westworld series on HBO.
Speaking of HBO, it remains to be seen if the Fallout TV will reach the same heights - though from what we've seen from leaked set photos - it will retain the look and feel and satire of the videogame series.
