Rebellion reveal Atomfall which looks a bit like a British Fallout

3 Min Read

The Xbox Showcase continues with the reveal of Atomfall from Sniper Elite developers Rebellion.

Atomfall is set in the British countryside and we can tell that’s where we are due to the use of red telephone boxes and double decker buses, the universal sign of “This is British”.

There seems to have been some sort of nuclear issue, the game audio references Windscale, the old name for Sellafield,  large multi-function nuclear site on the coast of Cumbria, England. There are robots,  glowing ghouls and destroyed landscapes to wander around, it all looks rather Fallout – of course, there’s the fan-created Fallout London mod, which will scratch this itch in a different way.

Here’s the description from Rebellion:

“A single player, survival-action game, Atomfall blends post-war Britain with Cold War paranoia, folk horror, and elements of classic British sci-fi like Day of the Triffids, Doctor Who and The Prisoner, to create an immersive and thrilling gameplay experience. Set in the rolling British countryside with idyllic pubs, quaint villages, and red phone boxes it soon becomes clear that things are far from normal. Created by Rebellion, the makers of the much-loved Sniper Elite and Zombie Army franchises,”

“Atomfall is inspired by a real-world nuclear disaster that occurred in northern England in 1957. The game follows a fictional storyline where you find yourself in the quarantine zone five years after the event. Everything has changed in that time, and you find yourself in a very different Britain, on the wrong side of the quarantine wall. The area is run by the military and beset with factions, in-fighting, and a growing sense of fear. It’s up you to unravel the mystery of what happened. Explore the countryside, villages, and settlements and meet odd people, wicked cults, rogue government agencies and others along the way. Explore this open world adventure and seek out the truth at your own pace.”

Atomfall will be coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows PC in 2025. It is also coming to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
