A new trailer Fallout 4‘s upcoming Nuka-World DLC is now available, starring an animated Cappy and Bottle that teach viewers proper park safety rules.
Personality and the Fallout franchise go hand in hand. Just take a look at Fallout 4‘s upcoming DLC release, Nuka-World. The final piece of Fallout 4‘s Season Pass will take players into the post-apocalyptic version of the Nula-World theme park. The park is filled with all sorts of rides, games, and, of course murder, mayhem and intrigue. And what would a DLC release for Fallout 4 be without some throwback marketing to the time before the apocalypse when Nuka-World was terrifying in the normal theme park way?
Today Fallout 4‘s publisher Bethesda released an all-new, all-animated trailer for the Nuka-World DLC. No, unfortunately there’s no gameplay or in-game cinematic in the trailer; this is just a good old fun example of Fallout‘s endless personality. The “Nuka-World Theme Song feat. Bottle and Cappy” trailer is more of a introductory or instructional video for those visiting Nuka-World ing un “real life.” After all, theme parks can be dangerous places if you don’t follow the rules. Luckily Cappy and Bottle are more than willing to teach us the rules.
In typical Fallout fashion, things go a bit wild for Cappy and Bottle from there on. Well, mostly just for Bottle. Much like modern parody safety videos, or early ’90s workplace safety videos that you wish were parody, the best way to show off the rules is to show what happens when you break them. Or more specifically, break Bottle. Akin to Goofus and Gallant, Bottle plays the role of rule-breaker and generally pays the price for it.
Nuka-World will provide an entirely new region within Fallout 4 for players to explore at their leisure, provided they are least level 30. And it really is a theme park; this isn’t just a marketing scheme. Nuka-World will be broken up into several different areas for players to explore, including Safari Adventure, World of Refreshment, Dry Rock Gulch, Kiddie Kingdom, Galactic Zone, and Nuka-Town, USA.
Bethesda has even provided a pre-apocalypse guide to Nuka-World teasing what players can expect to find in each of the different Nuka-World areas. For instance, the Galactic Zone features the Starlight Interstellar Theater and Starport Nuka. Safari Adventure offers Cappy’s Treehouse and the mysterious and unfinished “The Angry Anaconda.”
For fans of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas‘s post-launch expansions, Nuka-Cola should deliver on those expectations like previous releases in Fallout 4‘s Season Pass may not have. It seemingly offers the size, the scale, the personality, and most importantly the fun of Fallout. Or at least everything we’ve seen regarding the DLC so far certainly makes it seem so.
Fallout 4 is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Nuka-World, the game’s final DLC release, will launch on August 30.
