The Fallout TV series is just around the corner, and we can’t wait to see what executive producers Jonathan Nolan (Westworld, Interstellar) and Lisa Joy (Westworld, The Peripheral) bring to the table on April 12, 2024. In the meantime, we do have a trailer we can look at, and many people have since been able to pinpoint some Easter Eggs for us gamers who have played the franchise; they even have some theories that may happen when the series is live. Let’s take a look at the Fallout TV series Easter Eggs and what we know so far.
Fallout TV Series – Easter Eggs and What We Know
It wouldn’t be a good Fallout series without a Vault, right? From the trailer, we know that one of the main characters, Lucy (Ella Purnell) hails from Vault 33. She exits the vault during the trailer, which is pretty much what happens in most Fallout games; the initial escape from their respective Vaults.
From the trailer, we know that some type of uprising will happen in Vault 33. A fight starts, and bullets are even exchanged. This is perhaps the start of everything. We’ll have to tune in and see!
The Santa Monica Pier
The trailer also shows a post-apocalyptic scene of what seems to be the Santa Monica Pier, a spacious pier located at the base of Colorado Avenue in Santa Monica, California. Nestled on the pier is Pacific Park, a family amusement park featuring a Ferris wheel adorned with solar panels. The illuminated wheel is visible from afar and is switched off in observance of Earth Hour. Or, in the series’ case, permanently. Since we know that this is a location in the show, prepare to see some pretty cool post-apocalyptic settings in an amusement park!
Radroaches are colossal renditions of pre-War species that underwent mutations due to exposure to atomic radiation. Yes, they are dangerous. Yes, they can be cooked and eaten. Yum.
The Brotherhood of Steel
The Brotherhood of Steel, usually called BoS, is a group that appeared after a big war and is really into technology and military technology. They have branches all over what used to be the United States. A former U.S. Army officer named Captain Roger Maxson started the Brotherhood right after the Great War. Their main goal is to keep advanced technology safe and make sure it’s used responsibly. Even though they often keep to themselves, the Brotherhood has been a really big deal in the post-war world. However, how much power and influence they have can change depending on the time and which branch you’re talking about.
In the Fallout game series, locations and settlements are remnants of a post-apocalyptic world, each with its own unique story. From the desolate wastelands to bustling towns, survivors navigate mutated landscapes, encountering factions, mutated creatures, and hidden treasures. These locales serve as battlegrounds for survival, exploration, and uncovering the secrets of a devastated world. In the TV show trailer, we can witness some of those locations.
Mister Handies, robotic entities prevalent in the Commonwealth, the Island, and Nuka-World in 2287, showcase diverse weapon setups, often employing buzzsaws and flamethrowers. Similar to other robots, if a Mister Handy loses all offensive capabilities, it activates self-destruct, launching towards its adversary in a final attempt. If this is also the case in the TV series, it will be very interesting to see how they act around humans and ghouls.
Merchants, also referred to as vendors, serve as the main suppliers of items and equipment in the Fallout universe, complementing the acquisition of goods through scavenging or looting deceased adversaries. Here we can see our main character along with Wilzig (Michael Emerson) and what seems to be a trader that won’t deal with anyone’s B.S.!
Walton Goggins plays “The Ghoul” according to IMDB. He is seen here in what looks like an outpost. However, we know that before the War, he was very human and seemed to also be a father.
Yao Guai, the evolved offspring of American black bears, roam as ferocious beasts across Appalachia, the Capital Wasteland, the Commonwealth, the Island, and Zion Canyon in the Fallout universe. These creatures were originally named by the descendants of individuals confined in Chinese internment camps before the Great War.
During The Game Awards 2023, some of the cast members appeared on stage, along with a member of the Brotherhood of Steel. There was a trailer beforehand that started with Walton Goggins dressed sharply and standing in front of Vault 4. It will be interesting to see if his character was once part of Vault-Tec Corporation, also known as Vault-Tec Industries, or simply Vault-Tec, which was a pre-War defense company that secured federal government contracts to create and execute a series of bunkers called Vaults. These structures were specifically designed to safeguard the U.S. population in the event of a nuclear holocaust.
Have you seen something interesting during the trailer? Have we missed anything? Let us know what you think is going to unfold in this new TV series! Fallout TV Series will air on Amazon Prime on April 12, 2024.
