One Fallout 4 player and dedicated science fiction fan uses assets from Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG to create a giant battle in the vein of Star Wars.
The YouTuber, modder, and Fallout 4 player known as Cosmic Contrarian is back again to bring yet another large-scale battle to the Boston Commonwealth. This time around, he’s altered the elements of Bethesda’s open world title to resemble a point in history that was long ago in a galaxy far, far away by incorporating the style of the Star Wars franchise.
In order to bring this sci-fi mashup to life, Cosmic Contrarian had to utilize a bevy of different mods for Fallout 4, such as the Star Wars Imperial Brotherhood of Steel Overhaul, which made the power armor in the game resemble that of the film’s Stormtrooper outfits. Plus, it was necessary for the YouTuber to make use of the retro-futuristic title’s Seasons mod, as he needed snow on the ground to change several areas of the Wasteland into spots that would look like the ice planet Hoth.
As seen in the video below, the footage begins with Brotherhood of Steel airships standing in for Star Destroyers looming in the sky, as Fallout 4‘s Liberty Primes taking on the role of Star Wars‘ AT-AT Walkers stalk the ground below and set off a conflict that builds to an all-out war. Interestingly enough, though, the focus goes on to shift away from the skirmish and centers solely on a lengthy duel between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, with Cosmic Contrarian making use of the title’s Lightsaber Renew mod and Jedi and Sith Force Powers mod to provide the characters with their mystical powers.
As previously noted, this is far from Cosmic Contrarian’s first foray into modding different battles from film franchises into Fallout 4. In fact, one of the YouTuber’s more popular clips involves his recreation of Lord of the Rings‘ Battle of Helm’s Deep, which obviously put a post-apocalyptic spin on the action found in Peter Jackson’s fantasy movies based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s books. Not to mention, the modder also put the futuristic war from The Terminator in the Boston Commonwealth with the game’s Generation 2 Synths standing in for the titular killer robots.
Of course, Cosmic Contrarian’s incorporation of all the aforementioned film franchises into Fallout 4 isn’t perfect, as the game has its own limitations that modders have to work around, but the effort is certainly impressive. With that in mind, there’s no telling what the YouTuber will be able to cook up next.
