Fallout: London Vehicles Are Pure ’90s Nostalgia

Fallout 4 mod Fallout: London will become a full-fledged sequel to Bethesda’s survival RPG, transporting the series from the radiation-drenched United States to the Land of Hope and Glory with acid rain and nuclear winter. One of its biggest features is the addition of vehicles, with Black Cabs, vintage Rolls-Royces, and even push bikes available to help you cruise through the capital in style, and as you can see from these newly released screenshots, each one comes with its own serving of pure ’90s nostalgia.

Like the Grognak the Barbarian comics or Guns and Bullets editions, Fallout: London includes collectible manuals that power up a variety of your abilities. As published in Developer TwitterLondon criminal stat catalogs add to your combat skills – find the one that covers heists, and it will instantly add a rank to the petite-named, melee-based ASBO perk, which presumably allows you to take down Super Mutants off ‘Spoons with a higher chance of a critical hit.

Even more British, though, are the books that improve your car-based stats, not to say “only ’90s kids will remember…” here, but for those of you unlucky enough to have grown up in the decade of the Spice Girls, Tamagotchis and TFI Friday you will instantly recognize these covers.

Just imagine the scene. It’s 1997. It’s Saturday afternoon. Your dad is outside in his ripped jeans and paint-smeared Fruit of the Loom sweater, sipping coffee from the mug that came with a Smarties easter egg, looking increasingly stressed as he examines the innards of his K-reg Ford. Mondeo. He reaches into the glove compartment and retrieves his lone life preserver, a staple of every ’90s nuclear family: the Haynes manual.

They’re stacked in your grandfather’s garage. Every charity shop has a full back section. And now they’re in a Fallout game, as every car in Fallout: London, from the regal Ambassador to the humble Smart Car-esque Tater T, comes with its own Haynes-esque upgrade book. So if you break down in the middle of a Deathclaw-infested Shadwell, you’ll know what to do.

It’s a loving and well-observed tribute to British culture, and yet another reason why we’re looking forward to Fallout: London. Until then, another Fallout fan sequel, Appalachia, just got an hour of new gameplay footage.
