Fallout: Miami, from a team led by Milan Brajkovic who primarily works on the mod as a visual artist, aims to bring an entirely new experience to Fallout 4; one set in the sun and sand of the Florida coast. Players will journey to the post-nuclear vacation wasteland of Miami Beach and experience a story of the ideological struggle between Order and Freedom. In this modded expansion, you will find a main quest, multiple side quests, new items, a large cast of voiced characters, new raider gangs, slavers, and “Gatorclaws,” the reptilian cousins of the Deathclaw. According to the developer:
“The Sole Survivor journeys to the sunny South, following the promise of a well-paid job, but ends up embroiled in a conflict between various groups, some vying for power, others fighting to uphold their ideals,” explains the trailer’s description. “Uncover the truth behind the mysterious disappearances and take part in the age old struggle between Order and Freedom.”
Fallout Miami will be divided into several districts, catering to your exploration desires:
- Meridian: On the outskirts, you’ll find Meridian, an industrial zone that hosts the well-known Pop & Chill bottling plant, among other factories, and the homes of Miami’s working class.
- Atlantic: Just over the river is Atlantic, a district of two parts. Along the coast are some of the most opulent resort hotels, including the world-famous Sunshine Hotel & Casino, while the central area is mostly residential.
- Maimon: Home to the university campus and hospital.
- Bayshore: Luxury housing and luxury leisure, mansions are a common sight in Bayshore and the Cuban golf course is an ever-popular destination for fat cats both native and visiting.
- Sheridan: Similarly to Atlantic, the coastline is dedicated to tourism. On the west side of the river are many suburb-like neighbourhoods, as well as Miami Beach Sheridan High School, which borders Bayshore’s vast golf course.
- Downtown: The beating heart of Miami. Business, shopping, bars, restaurants, theaters, Downtown has it all, including civic buildings such as City Hall and the Miami Beach Convention Center.
- Flamingo: A patchwork of retirement communities, entertainment and luxury, Flamingo is Miami, just calmer. Locations range from Miami’s largest yacht club to the Flamingo Trailer Park.
This is a great way for fans to scratch their Fallout itch before the long-awaited Fallout 76 B.E.T.A release in October this year.
As yet, there is no official launch date for Fallout: Miami, and like the other big Fallout 4 mods, this will only be available for PC due to the scale of the project. You can stay up to date with all the progress on the Fallout: Miami official Blogspot.
