Fallout Cascadia is planning to deliver nearly eighty square kilometers of land centered around Seattle proper. It will contain several large settlements such as the capital of the Republic of Cascadia, Cascade. Cascadia takes places hundreds of years after the previous Fallout games, in the year 2329. To capture this time period we are making use of texture artists and asset creators to show the slow progress of the wasteland to a post-post-apocalyptic society. But make no mistake, conflict and turmoil still grips this wasteland.
To the fans crying for more RPG in your Fallout 4, this may be the mod you’re looking for.
Reviving the old system
We are taking great pains here at the team to ensure that the shortcomings of Fallout 4 are addressed with Fallout Cascadia. Working with many talented coders around the world we plan on correcting everything from the stunted dialogue system to the lack of S.P.E.C.I.A.L checks inside the game. We are carefully considering each criticism leveled at Bethesda's game and using the information gleaned to make Fallout Cascadia even better.
Huge mod seeks to bring Seattle to the world of Fallout 4
For the Fans - Forever Free
Fallout Cascadia is developed entirely by a volunteer force of many individuals, each with their own strengths and abilities. Some of our volunteers have never worked on a project this size before, some come from other large modding projects out there; Beyond Skyrim for example. Anyone is free to apply to a position in the team, as we are always looking for more creative and skilled developers. Fallout Cascadia will be forever free.
New details reveal the frightening scale of Fallout 4's Cascadia mod
A new grand city with actual economics and social class that has yielded a society not too different from our own. Affluence has returned and to continue their growth they have began expanding and “colonizing” outlying towns, incorporating them into their economics and imposing their laws, politics, and culture upon them. Some towns have embraced it wholeheartedly while others have seen it as a means to a survivor’s end. Cascadia essentially represents the idea of the “American Dream” to many unbeknownst people, they strive to move up, become more secure, and have a family, but much like the real world today the American Dream is far more obtainable in areas outside of America. Over time Cascadia has developed into a more or less totalitarian society, far from it’s purely democratic roots. The two grew and a one-person-one-vote system was starting to fail so the Republic was born, a Chancellor was appointed and each major section of the city chose a representative to join him. At first it ran well but soon transformed into an inequitable and unequal arrangement. Today many protests are happening in the streets of Cascadia, citizens asking for fairer representation and pay, for elections, and upward mobility.
A reactionary force to the imperialistic expansion by the RoC, the Red Leafs are composed of those opposed to the aggressive policies that the RoC has used to annex new territories and the authoritarian rule it has imposed upon them. The ongoing guerrilla fighting by the relatively decentralized red leaf ‘houses’ has only pushed the RoC to greater oppression and atrocities, something which has helped gather sympathies to the Red Leaf cause.The Red leafs support their guerilla campaign through various illegal tactics akin to modern day terrorism. This includes attacks on RoC supporters and sympathizers in and around Cascade, as well as drug pushing, arms dealing, and infiltration.

Taking no side in the brewing civil war the NCR merely stands back, monitoring the situation, preparing for their next step.

Frequently Asked Questions
Fallout Cascadia is an upcoming modification to Bethesda's Fallout 4 it will function as a new game every step along the way. Fallout Cascadia takes the player back to the west coast and is geographically centered around Seattle, Washington. It will feature a new worldspace comparable to the one in Fallout 4, a new branching main quest, new factions, weapons, armors, a new protagonist (who is yet to be revealed) as well as much more. It will be nothing short of a new entry into the Fallout franchise.
WILL THIS MOD COME TO CONSOLES?
We would love it to but it is sadly not possible, we take use of the Fallout 4 Script Extender (F4SE). We have released some of our content to the Xbox platform (For example; Our NCR Armor Pack) and will continue to release more standalones as time goes on.
WHEN WILL THIS BE RELEASED?
This is something impossible to say as our team is based on a volunteer basis. We are working after a set internal date but we wont have anything to announce to the public for a while.
WHAT DO I NEED TO RUN FALLOUT CASCADIA?
A PC that can run Fallout 4 on medium settings, a copy of Fallout 4, the Far Harbor, Nuka World, and Vault Tec DLCs and F4SE. We may add additional DLC requirements as development progresses. There will not be a “no DLC” version.
DO I HAVE TO START A NEW GAME?
Yes, Fallout Cascadia's story, world, characters and more are completely separate from Fallout 4, just like our main protagonist. We also make a lot of changes to various gameplay mechanics which means earlier saves would break.
WILL FALLOUT CASCADIA BE FREE OR ON THE CREATION CLUB?
Fallout Cascadia will be a free, total-conversion mod. Bethesda's paid mods program was discontinued earlier in 2015 and something similar has come back with the Creation Club. We had long before the revealing of the Creation Club decided that we will not participate in that sort of program if it returns. Fallout Cascadia will be forever free.
WILL THIS BE LORE FRIENDLY?
We have done extensive research into the lore of Fallout and we are following all the canon lore established by previous games. We've also looked at lore considered non or semi-canon and worked with it to fit some of it into our own. Within the team there's been extensive writing to fill in the gaps and bring a whole new world to you.
