One of the latest, and most visually impressive, Fallout 4 mods sees the region being overhauled into a ghastly place that will rival any Hollywood horror film.
Inspired by the critically-acclaimed 2015 American horror film The Witch, this new Fallout 4 mod - called Pilgrim - Dread the Commonwealth - transforms the Boston Commonwealth into a gray, overcast and foreboding land. The game's weather system has been tweaked while also incorporating various things like lens emulation, film grain, adjustable letter-boxing, optional sharpening, and a lift shadows function. When combined with the numerous derelict Boston ruins and the surrounding mutant-filled forests, the result is a spine-chilling aesthetic that would please any horror fan.
While the mod doesn't add any new quests, it does still contain a considerable amount of original content - new weather, sounds, environment lighting, and a digital cinema camera mode that can capture grainy film footage. The result: Boston Commonwealth becomes a terrifying place.
The mod also has a brand new original soundtrack of background, combat and exploration music, all of which replaces Fallout 4‘s vanilla music and will change according to the weather thanks to a new dynamic music system, making exploration an even more immersive (and terrifying) experience.
Expect more content in the future as the creators have stated that there are plans to replace Fallout 4‘s popular four-legged sidekick - Dogmeat - with Black Phillip, the terrifying goat antagonist from The Witch, although no details have been revealed as to when this will be arriving.
Just a word of warning: Pilgrim won’t work with any pre-installed weather mods and will only work with the base game for now, meaning that DLC-only places like Far Harbor and Nuka-World won’t be getting the creepy horror look just yet.
