10 games like Fallout


Games like Fallout: Skyrim

Developer: Bethesda
Platform(s): PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

The obvious go-to choice if you’re after something similar to the Fallout experience is undoubtedly Skyrim. Also made by Bethesda, the Elder Scrolls series is like a fantasy medieval-esque take on the Fallout open-world formula, and it has a lot of similar combat and RPG elements that will make you feel right at home. As the legendary figure known as the Dragonborn, you’re thrown into an epic adventure throughout the lands of Tamriel to put a stop to the dragons who have started resurrecting back to life and returning to the skies. With civil strife, expansive areas to explore, secrets to uncover, and endless quests and stories to work through, you’ll sink just as many hours into it as you did in Fallout. Skyrim also has its own rich lore, and its lush green world and star speckled skies can be a nice break from the bleak, radiated Wastelands. Instead of super mutants, ghouls, and, Deathclaws, you’ll face bears, dragurs, and, of course, plenty of dragons. Oh, and the sweet rolls are lot more appetising in Elder Scrolls with no rads to speak of. Yummy.

Developer: Obsidian Entertainment
Platform(s): PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch

The Outer Worlds is published by Private Division and developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the latter of who is also responsible for 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas. With this DNA, and as a first-person action-adventure game, The Outer Worlds feels very Bethesda/Fallout-flavoured, and is set in alternate future ruled by civil unrest, warring factions, and autocratic megacorporations. With a sci-fi bent, The Outer Worlds sees this particular dysfunctional society colonizing in space and terraforming alien planets.  

Horizon Zero Dawn

Games like Fallout: Horizon Zero Dawn

Developer: Guerrilla
Platform(s): PC, PS4

Guerrilla’s unique take on the post-apocalypse in Horizon Zero Dawn is far less bleak than the various Wasteland settings you traverse through in Fallout, but it still has just as much intrigue, lore, and steller story-telling to tuck into. The gorgeous vistas are inhabited by advanced machines that look like all manner of prehistoric creatures. You play as Aloy, a machine hunter who sets out to uncover her true origin and unravel the secrets that litter the landscapes. Just like in Fallout where you encounter different inhabitants in settlements around the world, you’ll meet many tribes and encampments filled with interesting characters and side quests. And if you’re a fan of exploration, you’ll enjoy exploring the snowy peaks and grassy fields, and diving into the Cauldrons which are not a million miles away from opening up a vault you’ve yet to explore. The combat is a little different, but you can modify your weapons and take different tactical approaches to best the robot dinosaurs.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Games like Fallout: Red Dead Redemption 2

Developer: Rockstar
Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

The Mojave desert in Fallout: New Vegas isn’t a million miles away from the world you’ll gallop across in Red Dead Redemption 2 (opens in new tab). While it’s not set after any kind of apocalypse, exploring the wild west promises to deliver a lot of adventures as outlaw Arthur Morgan, who’s part of the Van Der Linde gang. In its massive open-world, you’ll have a lot of opportunities to go off the beaten track and play out your journey however you want. With exploration, numerous activities that play out like mini-games, side quests, and a pretty engrossing main story-line, this is another time-stealer that will keep you occupied and then some. There’s also lots of slow-mo shooting opportunities, so if you love using your VATS, you might get a kick out of the gun-slinging Dead Eye action. When you’ve had your fill of Nuka-Cola and you’re ready for a taste of something different – like some good old fashioned saloon whiskey – you can grab your best cowboy hat and saddle up for a different kind of adventure. 

Cyberpunk 2077

Mad Max

Games like Fallout: Mad Max

Developer: Avalanche
Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Mad Max is another open-world adventure that takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting. While it’s story might be a little thin on the ground, and the voice acting isn’t nearly as good as that of Fallout 4, the desert wastelands set the scene for some very fun vehicular combat. The combat mechanics differ to that of Fallout and consist of fight sequences where have to hit the counters in time, as well as putting a focus on smashing and crashing your car in mad highway clashes with enemy groups throughout the many regions. You can still get your exploration fix in this wasteland, though. The expansive landscapes are there for you to drive through and explore at your leisure, and as you upgrade your vehicle, weapons and bases, traversing the dusty roads becomes even more of a riot. 

The Last of Us 2

Dying Light

Developer: Techland
Platform(s): PC, PS4, Xbox One

Dying Light is several years old now, but in terms of originality it sits just above its sequel Dying Light 2. Despite the original’s age, it’s nevertheless one of the best-supported, most polished horror games out there today. A zombie outbreak is behind this world’s post-apocalyptic demise, which calls for a lot backs-to-the-wall gun fighting, all wrapped up in a not-so-pretty survival game bow. Think Mad Max dystopia, Mirror’s Edge parkour and Fallout RPG mechanics, and you’re a ways to climbing into the virus-infected mindset of Dying Light.
