Talented Fallout 4 fan and modder EzPlays recreates Quicksilver ’s action-packed mansion rescue scene from this summer’s big blockbuster, X-Men: Apocalypse.
Even though he’s fairly new to the X-Men films, Quicksilver has quickly become one of the most popular characters within the franchise. And with popular characters come fan recreations, the latest of which is from YouTuber and Fallout 4 fan, EzPlays, who used Fallout 4 to recreate Quicksilver’s slow motion action sequence, set to the song Sweet Dreams, in X-Men: Apocalypse.
For those who haven’t seen the movie yet, the scene shows Quicksilver leisurely running through an exploding building, grabbing everyone inside and getting them to safety in the nick of time. The scene is shot similarly to Quicksilver’s Pentagon sequence from X-Men: Days of Future Past, which ended up being one of the most talked about scenes in the movie.
This isn’t EzPlays’ first fan recreation, his Youtube channel has multiple recreations featuring Deadpool and One Punch Man, as well as many of the popular massive NPC battle videos. EzPlays clearly put painstaking detail into recreating both the character look and the environment, a recreation of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, for this sequence. Check out the finished product below:
Fans of the movie will instantly recognize Quiksilver’s iconic silver jacket and goggles, effectively recreated in the game, as well as some of his more memorable movie moments, such as casually running through utter destruction, stopping to check himself in the mirror, and placing mattresses to catch falling characters. EzPlays’ use of slowly wafting flames and gently tumbling in-game objects captures the way Quicksilver sees the world when running at full speed.
Using modding tools to recreate classic scenes from movies and television is nothing new; we’ve seen YouTubers making videos from games such as the Skyfall train fight that was recreated in Grand Theft Auto and the Cops: Skyrim videos. Those who want to see how Quicksilver fares against Fallout 4’s regular enemies, EzPlays made another video showing Quicksilver running and fighting in the open game world, using what appears to be a version of the bullet time mod.
We’ve also been seeing more and more Fallout 4 fan recreations from all over, such as YouTuber UpIsNotJump’s brilliant Rick and Morty recreation. This huge influx of Fallout 4 fan recreations really points to the versatility of Fallout 4’s modding engine.
Think EzPlays recreation is worthy of the source material? And which iconic film sequence should EzPlays try to recreate next?
Fallout 4 is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
