Fallout 4 modders have proven themselves very creative, making both playable mods and videos using the game engine. A number of amazing things have already been produced in the game, and those creations are likely just the tip of the iceberg of what’s to come. The latest example of a modder creating something amazing using the Fallout 4 game engine comes from video creator Ez of EzPlays. Using the game as a base, he recreated the Quicksilver sequence from X-Men: Apocalypse in the world of Fallout 4.
The video above doesn’t go through the entire Quicksilver sequence, but instead focuses on his appearance on the scene and a few examples of his fast-paced heroics. Ez first made a Fallout version of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver incarnation, making him fairly close to his big-screen counterpart (though the Fallout version seems a bit older). Using plenty of fire and some slow-motion explosions, he then set about making Quicksilver the hero of the day as he rescued some of those unlucky enough to be caught inside. There was no pizza dog, though given how dogs in Fallout 4 seem to be immortal it’s likely that the dog would come out of it just fine anyway.
Of course, no version of the Quicksilver sequence would be complete without the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams” playing in the background. The music really is a nice touch, helping the clip to capture the fun of that sequence even if it doesn’t cover everything that the film version included. If any other music had been used (or if it had just relied on sound effects) then the end result likely wouldn’t have been quite as great.
All of the Fallout 4 videos coming out these days bring to mind the Sims video craze of the 2000s, where fans used The Sims and The Sims 2 to make a wide range of videos, films and music videos. The Sims games lend themselves naturally to that sort of use, after all, and some creators came up with some interesting vids. Now that a similar creative effort is being put into Fallout 4 and other modern games, it’ll be interesting to see if a sort of video renaissance occurs using modern graphics.
Some fans may not dig Ez’s recreation of Apocalypse‘s Quicksilver scene, or may not feel like it went far enough into the actual scene. For those fans, there’s the ‘Quicksilver Beats Fallout 4′ video that Ez made, which goes a long way toward capturing the feel of the character outside of the context of the X-Men movies. True to the character, of course, that video is set to Jim Croce’s ‘Time in a Bottle.’
X-Men: Apocalypse is now playing in theaters. Wolverine 3 opens in U.S. theaters on March 3rd, 2017, followed by unannounced X-Men films on October 6th, 2017 (possibly Gambit), March 2nd, 2018 (possibly Deadpool 2), and June 29th, 2018 (possibly New Mutants). X-Force is also in development.
Fallout 4 is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
