Amazon has released the first trailer for its upcoming Fallout TV series.
Starring Ella Purnell, Walton Goggins and Aaron Moten, the show is being produced by Kilter Films, the production company behind HBO’s Westworld.
Officially titled Fallout, it will launch on Prime Video on April 12, 2024.
The debut episode will be directed by Westworld co-creator and executive producer Jonathan Nolan, while Captain Marvel and Tomb Raider 2018 film co-writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and Silicon Valley co-executive producer Graham Wagner, have also been appointed as showrunners.
“Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have,” reads the description accompanying the trailer, which is viewable above.
“200 years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird and highly violent universe waiting for them.”
Fallout debuted in 1997 and the most recent game in the series was 2018’s online multiplayer title Fallout 76. Season 15 of the game, The Big Score, launches this week.
The last mainline series entry, 2015’s Fallout 4, is also its best-selling one, having shipped 12 million copies worldwide for launch day alone, according to its publisher.
Bethesda said last year that Fallout 4 would be getting a free current-gen upgrade in 2023. The update, which will be coming to Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC, will include a number of new features for improved performance.
Asked about its progress in August, Bethesda’s now retired head of publishing Pete Hines said the company had its hands full with Starfield, which would be released in September following a couple of delays.
“Dunno if you heard but we are shipping a new game in 3 weeks. Bit of a priority. When we have an update, we will share it,” he wrote.
Bethesda’s Todd Howard reiterated last year that Fallout 5 was behind Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 in the developer’s production queue.
