Walton Goggins (Justified, Tomb Raider) is set to join the TV series adaptation of Bethesda Softworks’ Fallout over at Amazon Prime. Jack Ryan, Reacher, the upcoming The Power Of The Rings, and my guilty pleasure Below Decks (stop laughing, at the back!) are all on, or coming, to the streamer. I think I now watch more on Amazon than I do on Netflix. They are showing no signs of stopping their mission for streaming domination with Fallout coming too.

 

Fallout

The story will apparently unfold in the same post-apocalyptic yet future-retro setting as the games. With the dust settling on a global nuclear war, some are needed to venture outside of their shelters and into the wasteland to replace essential equipment.

Goggins is believed to be playing a Ghoul, a mutated human after his prolonged radiation exposure during the war.

The game has been described as “atompunk retrofuturistic”, which sounds dangerously close to steampunk, and every Outposter knows that is cosplay’s even more unlikeable cousin.

Fallout

The setting and design are deliberately reminiscent of the post-1950s USA with the promises of new technology balanced against the lurking fear of nuclear destruction.

The series’ first title, Fallout, was developed by Black Isle Studios and released in 1997, and its sequel, Fallout 2, the following year. With the tactical role-playing game Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, development was handed to Micro Forté and 14 Degrees East.

In 2004, Interplay closed Black Isle Studios and continued to produce Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, an action game with role-playing elements for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox, without Black Isle Studios. Fallout 3, the third entry in the main series, was released by Bethesda Softworks, and was followed by Fallout: New Vegas, developed by Obsidian Entertainment.

Fallout 4 was released in 2015, and Fallout 76 released on November 14, 2018.

Fallout

Bethesda Softworks and Interplay were in a court case in 2012 over their attempts to create an MMORPG based around the property. The case was settled but the game never moved beyond Beta testing.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner will serve as co-showrunners and executive producers. Jonathan Nolan will direct the pilot and be joined by Lisa Joy, Athena Wickham, Todd Howard, and James Altman to complete the executive producer roster. Filming will begin this year.
