Easter eggs are a joy to find in games. If you understand the reference then you get a good ol’ chuckle, and if you don’t, you can continue on with your day none-the-wiser. Players are finding easter eggs years after a game has been released, and some easter eggs will be lost to the sands of time, their secret rooms, cryptic messages, and inside jokes to be hidden forever.

A massive Fallout 4 mod that will let you explore post-apocalyptic Miami is still in the works, but the mod team is starting over with a new worldspace for a better final product. Luckily, the world we’ve already seen in those Fallout Miami trailers isn’t going entirely to waste – you can now download and explore that early version of the mod for yourself.
Capital Wasteland is the name of a mod in the works for Fallout 4 that adds all of Fallout 3 to the newer game. It’s a complete overhaul project that’s occasionally run into legal snags, but the team behind it is still hard at work, and now they’ve produced a new trailer showing some feral ghouls (and other beasties) in some select locations from Fallout 3.
A busy modder is recreating Fallout 76’s Appalachia map inside of Fallout 4. Titled Fallout: Appalachia, the mod takes Fallout 76’s West Virginia-inspired landscape and brings it forward 185 years into Fallout 4’s timeline.
Fallout 4 launched in 2015, which I think means the statute of limitations on spoilers is up. Just in case, this is a story about a Fallout 4 mod which changes the ending and the ultimate fate of the most significant NPC in the game. The main quest sees you going in search of your missing son, Shaun, and the Father Companion mod offers a host of new ways to change his fate.
To my mind, there are few more distinct gaps between games in the same series as that between Fallout 2 and its 3D cousins. As well as the ten-year difference between Fallout 2 and 3, the series moved from Black Isle to Bethesda, and took on an entirely new visual identity. Now, however, a group of modders are trying to bring the family closer together.
While Bethesda moves on to Fallout 76, you can always count on modders to keep the studio’s single-player games filled with new content and ways to play. One of the most notable recent additions is Archimedes-II, a laser rifle with orbital strike capabilities that might just remind you of the New Vegas days.
Capital Wasteland, an ambitious mod for Fallout 4 that aims to remake Fallout 3 within its engine, is back in development. The mod was put “on hold” amidst legal difficulties regarding the use of voice assets, but in an update yesterday, the mod team says it will re-record the dialogue. As such, the mod is back in business.
Gah! We’re on the cusp of a new Fallout game being released for our PCs. That’s right, Fallout 76 comes out on November 14 – can you feel the anticipation, the excitement? It’s all a bit too much.
The irradiated Commonwealth of Fallout 4 is an often hostile environment, and not just thanks to the ghouls, deathclaws, and super mutants who call it home. So what better way to approach the place than in a suit of working ODST armor, which keeps Halo’s Orbital Drop Shock Troopers safe and cool on the nastiest of planets?
