Despite widespread agreement that Fallout 4 deviates from realism, a new mod has been developed to bring the game’s opening sequences closer to reality. Though the next installment in the post-apocalyptic RPG series, Fallout 5, has been confirmed, it will be a while before it is released because it follows Starfield and the mysterious Elder Scrolls 6.
However, readers may always revisit the most recent installment or older ones to tide them over until the next one comes out. Although Fallout 4 (Map) was well-received in 2015, some may feel the game has strayed too far from its late 1990s origins.
One of the best Bethesda step-out moments comes here, however, in the form of a seemingly perfect family life shattered by nuclear catastrophe. The game begins with the player in their ideal home with their partner and their newborn son, Shaun.
Despite this, the protagonist and their neighbors are forced to take refuge in a nearby underground vault when they hear that an atomic bomb is imminent, and they only make it there seconds before the sky is filled with a horrific mushroom cloud.
A vital beginning, yet one reader believed it lacked authenticity. PC Gamer reports that “More Realistic Intro,” a version of Fallout 4’s opening sequence, was recently posted by Nexus Mods user Unreal Septim.

After a new game is started, the first few minutes will proceed normally. But within a few minutes, just as the newscaster announces the imminent nuclear danger, the bombs go off, destroying Sanctuary Hills and everyone in it, including the player, who hasn’t made it to Vault 111 in time. After that, it’s game over.
The game can be completed in about five minutes. However, the mod is still intriguing. Fans of Fallout undoubtedly take it as a given that their character would be one of the few survivors in a post-apocalyptic world because vaults are one of the game’s most recognizable features.
Though some may argue that it adds realism to the game, the fact that players never get to glimpse the inside of one of these fortified buildings is a significant selling point for Unreal Septim.

While several Fallout 4 mods improve the gameplay experience, “More Realistic Intro” appears to have the opposite effect by guaranteeing the destruction of all players at the very beginning of the game. That player can’t fully assume the role of the Sole Survivor is ironic, given the mod’s presence.
