The trailer for an upcoming fan film set in the Fallout universe is great, despite its lack of super mutants.
Wayside Creations’ Fallout: Nuka Break, a Fallout fan film that takes inspiration from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, looked interesting from a teaser trailer released in October, but the latest theatrical trailer is fantastic. It’s just a tease of some possible future film greatness set in the apocalyptic world of Fallout.
Like any good fan film, Nuka Break includes accurate imagery and references to things one would see while playing the property it’s based off of. The storyline apparently follows a Vault dweller, his ghoul companion, and a slave they free from New Vegas.
If you pay attention, you’ll see that Nuka Break‘s Vault dweller tries to persuade a group of bounty hunters to not kill him, just like a player would in the Fallout games, and it even works a little bit. Of course, persuasion will only get you so far, so the film’s characters get into their share of gun battles too. It even has Fallout‘s powerups, with the Vault dweller shown chugging a bottle of Nuka Cola. Or could that be Nuka Cola Quantum?
Nuka Break evidently uses some CGI for its environments, in addition to puppetry of sorts with the inclusion of Fallout‘s Eyebots. The trailer hints that the final version of the film will put viewers into a V.A.T.S. style targeting view, possibly followed by the explosive results of whatever weapon is being aimed at an unfortunate bandit.
Since Bethesda isn’t following up on its trademark to create a Fallout movie or TV show yet, Nuka Break looks like an entertaining first taste of the property with real-life actors. Nuka Break‘s creators list it as “coming soon.”
