Amazon’s Fallout trailer premieres at Gamescom ahead of 2024 release

The last new Fallout game from Bethesda Game Studios was released about five years ago. The franchise’s live-action TV adaptation is finally coming, which is good news for fans of the post-apocalyptic RPG who had the opportunity to view an exclusive sneak peek.


Fallout is getting ready to launch on Amazon‘s Prime Video next year after being unexpectedly revealed by the game’s lead producer, Todd Howard, and Xbox boss Phil Spencer during the Starfieldtheater presentation at the ongoing Gamescom exhibition.

Despite the fact that the teaser itself was kept secret, a leaked video clip has been making the rounds online, giving glimpses of the footage showing a Vertibird in flight, the paramilitary Brotherhood of Steel, an unidentified woman emerging from the game’s survival shelters known as the Vaults, a ghoul resembling lead actor Walton Goggins, and a nuclear explosion close to what appears to be Los Angeles. A promotional poster posted by Prime Video on Twitter, disclosing the location of Vault 33 in Los Angeles, increased the buzz.

In an alternate history where nuclear war has ravaged the world, Fallout is set between the 21st and the 23rd centuries. The game’s retrofuturistic gritty setting was inspired by 1950s America, a time when society teetered on the brink of technological marvels and the ever-present threat of nuclear annihilation. The battle of humanity to survive in the post-apocalyptic wasteland, where vault occupants, wasteland wanderers, and numerous factions compete for power, is at the center of the narrative.

Since Amazon bought the rights to adapt the game in 2020, the series has been under development. The script will be written by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the acclaimed team behind HBO‘s sci-fi sensation Westworld, and the showrunners will be Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner. The talented actor Walton Goggins leads the cast of the program, which also includes Kyle MacLachlan, Xelia Mendes-Jones, Aaron Moten, and up-and-coming actress Ella Purnell.

Todd Howard mentioned his partnership with Jonathan Nolan in a recent interview, saying:

One of the movies which inspired Starfield is the movie Interstellar, written by Jonathan Nolan he goes by Jonah. I got to know Jonah, and I always wanted to make a Fallout TV show. So, I talked to Jonah about it and we have been making the Fallout TV show that’s coming, and we thought we would give you a sneak peek.

Across all of its games, the Fallout series has sold 46.4 million copies, with Fallout 4 having the most sales at 20 million copies. The Elder Scrolls VI, which is now in pre-production, will be finished before Fallout 5’s development can start, Howard confirmed last year.
