The Fallout Cascadia project is an upcoming new world-space mod for Fallout 4, and is being touted as having ‘more quests and locations’ than the game’s official Far Harbor DLC.
When the first three DLC packs for Fallout 4 were first announced, Bethesda stated that the Far Harbor expansion was the largest add-on that the company has ever created. Those claims turned out to be accurate as the expansion features 20 hours of content, as well as a new landmass so big that it takes 30 minutes just to walk across. But if the claims of an ambitious new mod project are to believed, then Fallout 4‘s Far Harbor expansion is going to be dwarfed by this new mod.
Titled Fallout Cascadia, this mod is an ambitious expansion that will take players to a brand new landmass set in Seattle that’s “just a bit smaller than Fallout 3,” and will feature “more quests and locations than Fallout 4‘s Far Harbor DLC.” The mod will be a standalone adventure that will be set decades after Fallout 4, and will not only feature the city, but also the surrounding areas of Mercer Island, Redmond, Bellvue, as well as forests and airports. Since this mod is set well after Fallout 4, a new save file will be required, and players won’t have the option to travel to and from the Boston Commonwealth.
Development of Fallout Cascadia started six months ago with a team of 18 members, and work has since been ramped up with the release of the Fallout 4 Creation Kit. Aside from a couple of screenshots, not much is currently known about the mod’s story, but interested modders and gamers can offer up their services towards the expansion’s development over at the project’s Tumblr page.
While the Far Harbor expansion was no slouch in giving players additional Fallout content, several PlayStation 4 owners have reported some major performance issues related to the DLC. Considering how ambitious the Fallout Cascadia mod is aiming to be, there could be a risk that the expansion could run into similar issues. With the release date for the mod still unconfirmed, hopefully the 18-member team will be able to iron out any bugs before releasing the expansion.
The development team has stated that Fallout Cascadia will be made available on the game’s Nexus website and Bethesda.net for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, although there is currently no guarantee that the mod will work on consoles. We will keep you posted on the mod’s progress, as well as any Fallout 4 related news and announcements.
Fallout 4 and its Far Harbor DLC are out now and available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
