GR Pick: Fallout 4 Turned into a Planet Earth Documentary


The veteran Fallout 4 modder UpIsNotJump has decided to use Bethesda's post-apocalyptic RPG as the basis for a new animated parody of the multinational nature documentary series produced by the BBC, Planet Earth II. Of course, instead of the actual world in which we ourselves live, the footage depicts the game's sprawling Boston Commonwealth Wasteland and its landmarks, as well as its irradiated creatures as its subjects.

As seen in UpIsNotJump's video below, the YouTuber has managed to perfectly sync up the narration provided by the English broadcaster and naturalist David Attenborough from an episode of Planet Earth II, and has even created a facsimile of the show's host using different mods and Fallout 4's character creation system. Perhaps the most interesting pieces of footage from UpIsNotJump's recreation of the BBC program involves Attenborough's comments on the animals from our natural world being used to describe the post-apocalyptic title's mutant beasts.

The Planet Earth II episode audio that UpIsNotJump uses for the Fallout 4 parody video comes from the show's entry detailing the island of Komodo in Indonesia, so as one might expect, the creatures that are most readily on display in the game come from the title's Far Harbor DLC. For those unaware, the expansion takes the Sole Survivor to an island off the coast of Maine to search for a young woman and a colony of synths.

Of course, this is far from UpIsNotJump's first foray into doing parody videos using Fallout 4 assets. As a matter of fact, one of the YouTuber's most popular creations involved the re-appropriation of scenes from Adult Swim's cartoon comedy, Rick and Morty, with the modder displaying some of the best moments from the first season of the show in the post-apocalyptic RPG.

Taking into account the fact that UpIsNotJump has continually been creating Fallout 4 mod videos ever since the game's release back in November 2015, it seems as if the YouTuber has no intentions of stopping any time soon. So, considering the high quality of UpIsNotJump's Planet Earth II parody, one can only hope for another fun installment from the modder sometime in the future.

Fallout 4 is out now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
