Fallout: London, a highly anticipated, DLC-sized mod for Fallout 4, has received a lengthy new trailer alongside confirmation of a 2023 release window.
Shared on the mod’s YouTube channel and in a tweet (below), the four-minute trailer shows off a ton of the game’s derelict locations, from decimated tube stops to an overgrown Tower Bridge.
We also get a look at some of the NPCs in the mod, though whether these are enemies, allies, or a bit of both is unclear. The trailer highlights a handful of relatively normal looking characters that wouldn’t look out of place in a regular Fallout game, alongside some wackier individuals – including a wild-looking tree man.
We are prepping everything for our panel at the amazing FalloutForHope event by @CHADFallout76Podcast. Some of you might have noticed that a video is sitting being Premiered on our Youtube too, this will play just over half way through our panel.

Fans eager to find out exactly who these NPCs are will have to wait a little longer given the announcement that Fallout: London is coming next year. Nothing more specific was revealed in the trailer, but this is the first indication of a release window the developers have offered in the mod’s four years in development.
It certainly looks impressive, however, evidenced by Fallout developer Bethesda actually hiring one of the mod’s lead writers as a quest designer in August last year.
Fallout: London is also the only taste of the franchise (albeit unofficially) that fans will get for a long time. Director Todd Howard revealed recently that Fallout 5 is planned to be released after the Elder Scrolls VI, which is likely still years away given it was put to one side while Bethesda focuses on its space RPG Starfield.
