Yet another giant Fallout 4 modding project has released a trailer for an ambitious expansion-sized campaign. Fallout: London is planning to take players to see how the war affected things in the UK. London may change, but war doesn’t. Things look just as irradiated, divided, and gritty as you’d expect from a major Fallout 4 mod project. There’s no release date yet, and it’s certainly looking like there will be plenty of infighting between its new, British factions. No Enclave or Brotherhood of Steel here. Read more

This mod adds runes that you can craft with loot from bosses and dungeons. Summon a light instead of carrying a torch. Scorch a forest full of Greylings with your fire. Oh, and teleport yourself back to your bed at will. It sounds pretty powerful, but chucking fire and ice around sure looks like a good time. Read more
Thanks to the endless work of prolific modders, is there anything you can’t do in Skyrim? Not anymore, no. You can have Half-Life’s gravity gloves. You can create new voice lines.
