The first trailer for the live-action Fallout TV series based on the popular video games from Bethesda has arrived. Last week, we got our first proper glimpse at the series when Vanity Fair published a number of photos from the show, revealing Ella Purnell as protagonist Lucy, some sweet shots of the Brotherhood of Steel, Walter Goggins as a ghoul and more. The series is set to arrive on Prime Video on 12 April next year.
The new trailer sticks very closely to the tone of the Fallout games, particularly the style of Fallout 4 and Fallout 76. Set in Los Angeles, California after a nuclear incident sends survivors of the nuclear apocalypse into isolated vault shelters, the story follows Lucy who emerges from her own vault to journey across the wastelands, meeting the radioactive monsters and inhabitants of the world above.
The official description for the Fallout TV series reads:
“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. From executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of Westworld, and starring Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins, Aaron Moten and more.”
In Fallout-related news, those hoping for Fallout 5 game might be in for a very long wait. Speaking in an interview last year, Bethesda’s Todd Howard said that Fallout 5 would only launch after The Elder Scrolls 6, which is at least a few years off from release. That means the next Fallout game will probably arrive in a decade or so, depending on the game’s development time.
The Fallout TV series arrives on 12 April 2024. Watch the trailer below:
