Fallout Mash-Up Pack coming to Minecraft: Wii U Edition

Posted on December 15, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Minecraft: Wii U Edition will soon be adding some new DLC based on Fallout, Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG franchise. Mojang announced the new DLC today and also shared first details about what’s included.

Here’s the lowdown:

“Working in the depths of their bunker complex, our artists and builders have been busy blasting Minecraft’s glorious overworld into an irradiated wasteland fit for Fallout fans to wander. Friendly cows, gently sauteed in the light of a thousand suns, have now sprouted second heads, while the familiar supersized spiders have made way for other overgrown arachnids, who scuttle through the dark wielding brutal stingers.

These are not the only mobs to get a little bit melty. Lurking in the shadow of the series’ familiar landmarks – like the Capitol building or Tenpenny Tower – are ghouls, mutants and madmen of many kinds. Vault Dwellers beware: you may be S.P.E.C.I.A.L., but the wasteland is a very dangerous place indeed.

You can be sure you’ll look the part, too, with a choice of 44 skins based on beloved characters from the series, including the likes of Fawkes the philosophical supermutant; robo-sleuth, Nick Valentine; Tinker Tom; Paladin Cross; Jangles The Moon Monkey and Vault Boy himself.

Even the UI has been given a retro-futuristic overhaul in honour of Fallout’s wristmounted computing device, the Pip-Boy! The mash-up also comes with a soundtrack combining familiar tunes from across the Fallout series – so you can keep dancing til the end of the world.”

The Fallout Mash-Up Pack will cost $5.99 or your local equivalent. There’s no release date yet, but Wednesday seems like a safe bet given how we know that maintenance for the game will be taking place next week. View a trailer for the DLC below.
