Point Lookout – Fallout 4 is a faithful fan recreation of Fallout 3’s Point Lookout DLC… but in its sequel. The Fallout 4 mod includes every quest, location, NPC, enemy, and nearly every item and weapon from its predecessor’s DLC.
It’s an impressive feat. Point Lookout was the penultimate DLC for Fallout 3, which was released back in 2009. Located in Point Lookout State Park in Maryland, the expansion broke away from the usual grey palette of the vast Capital Wasteland in favour of a small town in a swamp, with a seaside (swampside?) pier and a strange old mansion.
The mod is the work of The Capital Wasteland Project, which aims to recreate all of Fallout 3 in Fallout 4, along with the added benefits to graphics, physics, and performance. As you’d expect the DLC looks significantly better on Fallout 4’s engine, with higher resolution textures, god rays, and better visuals thanks to the use of assets from the newer game.
