NVIDIA has taken a step into game development by releasing their very own mod for Bethesda’s Fallout 4. And the mod is called, wait for it, Vault 1080. You can check out the preview trailer down below.
The usage of gorgeous shadows and volumetric lighting isn’t the only thing that this mod offers; there’s also a bit of lore involved here, as explained over on the official NVIDIA site:
‘But this is not just about looks. Vault 1080 uses its terrifyingly realistic light and shadow as the core of its experience. It’s a dark and ominous journey before you even head below ground, as you travel to the ruins of a fog-shrouded church through hostile marshland. Once in you find the entrance to Vault 1080 and its dark, intimidating tunnels. Tunnels that are, inevitably, full of twisted dangers.
This is a big mod – equal in size to the other vaults spread across the commonwealth – with its own brand new questline. And it’s a Fallout vault like you’ve never seen before.
It’s certainly taken its toll on its occupants. They’ve become a congregation that embraces the darkness and sickness, and they’ve done it – so they believe – to survive. They’re not the friendliest bunch. But is the whole thing built on lies? The truth is deep within Vault 1080, through a whole lot of fearful mystery. Find it and decide for yourself whether the monsters deserve their salvation… or not.’
Vault 1080 will be made available for Fallout 4 on September 2.
