You can now play the Point Lookout DLC from Fallout 3 in Fallout 4

Point Viewpoint was my favorite Fallout 3 expansion, adding an island full of mutated rednecks who’ve grown thick, calloused forearms that they hold up to keep you from shooting them in the head, and drugged-out villagers who send you on a psychedelic vision quest. It’s weird, funny, and fun, and now you can play it in Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 – Point Lookout (opens in new tab) comes from the team behind the Capital Wasteland project, which made our list of six most ambitious Fallout mods in development right now. When Capital Wasteland is complete, it will contain most of Fallout 3 and its DLC, with freshly recorded dialogue playable in Fallout 4. They have already released a number of their work as standalone mods for Fallout 4, bringing things like the super mutant companion fawkes (opens in new tab), classic metal armor (opens in new tab) and safe suits (opens in new tab), Capital Wasteland robots (opens in new tab)and more.

The standalone version of the Point Lookout mod has some dialogue tweaks so that playing it with your Fallout 4 protagonist makes sense (although the finished Capital Wasteland mod requires a fresh start). It also reinstates some Point Lookout perks that were cut from the Fallout 3 version and could only be obtained using the console, adds some non-hostile swamp animals, and expands the island to squeeze into a nesting workshop.

To install Fallout 4 – Point Lookout you will also need to have all Fallout 4 DLCs, the script extender (opens in new tab)The Expanded dialog interface mod (opens in new tab)and you will probably want F4z Ro D-oh – Silent Voice (opens in new tab) also, as the current version has some voice lines missing and without them they will play at the wrong speed.

Don’t stop there, however. If you want to customize even more, here is our list of best fallout 4 mods.
