A confusing affair for Europeans

The Fallout show produced for Amazon Prime has a release date: It will launch on April 12, 2024, a post on social media by the show’s account has revealed.

Though both Amazon and Bethesda are American companies and their use of the MM/DD/YY system to date the release should be expected, the announcement has caused a great deal of confusion among European users, who are generally used to the more logical DD/MM/YY – sorry, Americans.

Anyway, the point is: Fallout launches not on December 4, but April 12, 2024.

Based on Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG franchise, the streaming show has been developed by Lisa Joy, the co-creator of Westworld, and Jonathan Nolan, who worked on Westworld and a few of his brother Christopher’s movies. Bethesda’s iconic director Todd Howard is an executive producer on the show.

Walton Goggins, Ella Purnell, and Kyle MacLachlan are among the cast. Filming began in 2022. Not much is known about the show’s plot aside from it being set in Fallout’s post-nuclear war alternate history setting people know and love from the games, including the retro-futuristic tech and aesthetics.

Recently, Magic: The Gathering announced a Fallout collaboration dated for 2024 as well, which makes a whole lot more sense all of a sudden.
