“Fallout 76” – game trailer
“Fallout” – what do we know about the series?
The series is set in the nuclear-war-ravaged Los Angeles and begins in Vault 33, where we will meet the main character played by Walton Goggins (“The Hateful Eight”). The events of the production are intended to be consistent with the canon of the video games.
The showrunners of the series are Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner. Jonathan Nolan, who, along with his wife Lisa Joy (“Westworld”), is also a producer of the series, directed the first five episodes.
What is “Fallout”?
The “Fallout” video game series debuted in 1997 and has since seen four main installments and several spin-offs – the latest, “Fallout 76,” was released in 2018. In 2007, Bethesda acquired the rights to the franchise and shifted the series to three dimensions, which was not appreciated by all fans of post-apocalyptic RPGs.
Narratively, it tells the story of survivors of nuclear devastation who build a society organized around the so-called Vaults on the radioactive remains of civilization. The game’s atmosphere combines the iconography of the 1950s with retro-futuristic science fiction, and the meticulously created world is inhabited by various factions and groups of influences.
