Given the extremely modest budget rumoured to be under the $20,000 mark, the Perth based team behind the project has done a fantastic job with beautiful attention to detail in the costume department and lashings of appropriately gory combat. The film premièred at PAX Australia and was released today into the wilds of YouTube and has already garnered over 100,000 views.

Steeped in Fallout: New Vegas lore it details the humble beginning of the Monster of the East, Legate Lanius, the driving force of terror for Cesar’s Legions and the game’s final boss. Fallout: Lanius gives a fan fuelled insight into his motivations and brutality. It’s well worth a look and bodes well for the local industry when passion projects are produced of this calibre.

    This post has reminded me that this exists, for that I thank you. It was really well done considering it’s a fan film and the badassery just doesn’t stop.

    Agree! i have been following these guys way back when they started pitching the ideas and trying to get funding. Amazing to see how far they have come, makes you realise that hey, maybe anything is possible.

    Where’s the kick starter to turn this into a feature film?

    Cool videos. Although, if they want it to be like a Bethesda game, the video should crash and corrupt your PC..
