Prior to this weekend, Fallout 76 had a concurrent player record of around 40,000. This milestone was achieved amidst the excitement surrounding Amazon’s successful Fallout TV series. Additionally, the game is accessible to Xbox Game Pass subscribers at no extra cost.

Unfortunately for fans eagerly awaiting Fallout: London, a DLC-sized mod for Fallout 4, the release has been delayed once again. Initially scheduled for April 23, 2024, the mod’s lead developer, Dean Carter, revealed that the long-anticipated next-gen update for Fallout 4 – launching just two days after London’s planned release date – threatens to overshadow Team Folon’s four years of hard work.

In case you missed it, Amazon has officially renewed the Fallout TV series for a second season. The show’s executive producers, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy of Kilter Films, expressed their enthusiasm for continuing to explore the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout.
