Today on Amazon Prime Video, a long-awaited premiere - the first season of the Fallout series has been fully released (8 episodes) with Ukrainian subtitles. After the premiere in Hollywood, the producer of the series and Bethesda game director Todd Howard told IGN editor about the high chances of adapting the cult The Elder Scrolls and other well-known studio franchises.

About the adaptation of The Elder Scrolls and other games

Bethesda game director said that he continues to be asked about a movie or series about "The Elder Scrolls", and he continues to deny and refuse.

"I don't know. There's nothing like that in the works right now. Everyone keeps asking, for example, about Elder Scrolls, and I keep saying 'no.' So, I'll say it again, most likely, no. You never know which idea will 'take off.' But I think [with the Fallout series] everything turned out as it should, we did a quality job, because all the stars aligned at that time. We took on this idea ourselves because it resonated with us, and we were like 'hey, this sounds really cool,' without any coercion or pressure to 'make a series,' because otherwise it wouldn't have worked."

Earlier, Todd Howard said that the adaptation of Fallout also did not come together immediately.

The head of Bethesda Game Studios did not specify which joint product with Amazon is, but recalled that during the first meeting he immediately found a common language with Jonathan Nolan (co-author of the series "Westworld") and then everything started spinning.

"That's why I said 'no' for a decade. Everyone wanted to make a series or movie (based on Fallout), but I was firm and said 'No.' I didn't feel like it was really what was needed."

The Fallout series tells the story of human survival in a post-apocalyptic future in the year 2296 - 219 years after a nuclear war that nearly destroyed all of humanity. The plot is canon to the game series, but tells an original story built around three key characters. The producer Jonathan Nolan previously compared the show to Fallout 5.

On the eve of the premiere, critic reviews appeared, which were delighted and called the show one of the best game adaptations - the series absorbed the unique aesthetics inherent in the game series, which organically combines science fiction, retrofuturism, and western. The show has a rating of 72 out of 100 on Metacritic (audience score - 6.5 out of 10), and 93% "freshness" on Rotten Tomatoes (audience score - 87%). And so, a second season of Fallout awaits us in the future.
