A new mod for Fallout 4 seeks to turn the open-world post-apocalyptic title into something that feels more like a realistic war simulator, with inspiration from political thrillers like Air Force One and The Sum of All Fears. As the Fallout franchise turned 25 on October 10, many will be reflecting on how the series has evolved over the years, especially since Bethesda took over for the third installment in 2008. One theme that has been strong throughout is the notion of war, particularly the aftermath.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

While the fourth entry is still pretty solid, Fallout New Vegas is considered the superior game by many, with its strong storytelling and lean towards parody being particularly noteworthy. As beloved as the isometric-cum-FPS titles are, there are people out there who are always looking for ways to improve the vanilla formula. As such, there are mods surfacing regularly, some of which may just offer a few tweaks here and there, while others make significant changes to the visuals. Then there are those that provide a different experience to the ones players may be used to.

As spotted by PCGamesN, user Thumblesteen has uploaded their latest mod, called “Obscurum IV: Statesec,” which aims to convert Fallout 4 into a more realistic war shooter, not too far removed from the likes of Call of Duty. The modder says that players will encounter a sandbox world that’s full of “crazy and weird stuff,” with the core elements putting emphasis on war, taking inspiration from action movies. Those who download the mod will play as a version of the Minutemen fighting against an opposing faction known as the Commonwealth Separatist Regiment. The combat mechanics have been tweaked for a more fast-paced and “realistic” experience, and more Minutemen content has been added, such as new divisions and uniforms.

It sounds like “Obscurum IV” is going for a much more gritty playthrough, and while the main game is not without its sense of grit, it can go off the wall somewhat. The same can be said for the Fallout 4 mod that implements an alien invasion, making the overall game a little more eccentric. Thumblesteen’s efforts, however, seem to be aiming for a much more grounded story. It may be an interesting mod to check out, especially for those who are into war movies or CoD.

With Fallout 5 being officially confirmed not long ago, Bethesda is evidently looking to move forward with the franchise, and no doubt many fans are interested to know what comes next. But before all that, it seems evident that the modding community is awash with talented teams and individuals who are hell-bent on keeping the older releases active with a ton of interesting mods that can really change up how the games are played.

Fallout 4 is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
