Fallout Miami is one of the most ambitious mod game projects ever, moving players away from the New England setting of Fallout 4 itself and putting them in a “post-nuclear vacation field.” This has been going on for years, and in a new update post, the developers shared what they have been working on since the pandemic began.
Pre-production is done for the main adventure mod, with the team now moving on to writing as well as implementing the adventure. Fallout Miami is around the size and scope of an official Fallout Expansion when it releases, with side adventures and new characters to meet as well as face-to-face factions.
Those factions include a team that uses coconut shells for their masks, giving them a more frightening look than you might expect from a coconut shell. The 3D models for this undisclosed group are almost complete, and they should be fully featured as soon as possible. You can see a glimpse of some of the new characters and artwork in the video above.
The team also created brands and franchises that littered the map to give Miami a more realistic look. One of them is Poseidon Energy subsidiary Gasolina Caribbeanica, a fossil fuel supplier. The locations seem to be paused over time, much like the architecture from Fallout 4 itself – well, except for piracy and nuclear explosion damage. There is also a “Center School” to try to continue education, and it is built from scrap metal, but there are pre-war books and tapes available.
Fallout Miami does not have a release date yet. It is currently only planned for the PC, and you can learn more about game development, potential character expression, or helping with development through the official FAQ.
