Fallout 4 Wilderness Mod Channels The Blair Witch Project

Even as Bethesda's Fallout 4 heads into its sixth year, the apocalyptic RPG shows no sign of slowing down. While we wait for even the slightest whisper of Fallout 5, Bethesda is trying to fix Fallout 76 and busying itself elsewhere with Starfield's upcoming release. The Fallout 4 community has largely been left to its own devices - which has led to some amazing (and sometimes terrifying) fan mods.

Following the massive reveal trailer for the Fallout: London mod, someone else is back with a very different fan project.

If you've got a cushion to hide behind, get ready to head out into the Fallout 4 Wilderness mod and a decidedly Blair Witch Project-inspired affair.

How is the Fallout 4 Wilderness mod like The Blair Witch Project?

Exploring the barren realm of the Wasteland is nothing new, but with the Fallout 4 Wilderness mod, things are even more sparse. The brainchild of modder El Ha, Wilderness dishes up a slice of doom that's "at least as big" as Bethesda's official Nuka-World expansion from 2015.

Although you're free to explore Wilderness at your own pleasure, the main quest can be picked up by searching a skeleton at the start. With an ominous warning, you're told to evade "whatever is following you". It's here that things kick into overdrive with a story that's reminiscent of 1999's The Blair Witch Project

While Wilderness doesn't flip the camera around and turn Fallout 4 into a found-footage horror, there are similarities as you're stalked through this vast emptiness by a malevolent force. The main game of Fallout 4 can sometimes feel like a lonely affair, but in Wilderness, you'll feel every hair on your body stand up. Away from The Blair Witch Project, there's also a chilling Silent Hill vibe to appease those who are missing Konami's dormant franchise.

How can you play the Fallout 4 Wilderness mod?

Turning Fallout 4 into a survival horror is a stroke of genius. Being relentlessly pursued by this unseen monster is also reminiscent of Resident Evil's Tyrant chasing you down. Be warned though, hiding in houses or wardrobes won't save you from the evil that's following you in Wilderness.

El Ha advises playing the mod as a survival horror, and also says you should leave human companions at home to amp up the tension. If you're sold, there's an unnerving synth soundtrack and adverse water conditions to keep you on edge. Simply head over to Nexus Mods and download the Fallout 4 Wilderness mod to see what's going on.

The creator has also reiterated that Wilderness' survival credentials mean that if you want a bloodbath, you might want to look elsewhere. Just when you thought the nautical nightmares of the Far Harbour expansion were enough to put you off playing Fallout 4, along come modders to one-up the professionals.
