A teaser for the project was released on Thursday, July 2, offering the vibe Fallout fans expect: Crackling radio, old-timey music, and some sort of wrenching metal noise.

Bethesda producer Todd Howard said in a statement “Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen, but it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right. We’re enormous fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios.”

We’ve reached out to Amazon and Bethesda for more details, and will update this story if we get more information. No word yet on whether famed series narrator Ron Perlman will make an appearance.

Amazon held its big September hardware event today and saved the best for last, as TV enthusiasts might say, with an update to its latest TV lineup. The Fire TV Omni QLED Series features improved picture quality and a motion-sensing "ambient" experience that can trigger a whole range of new on-screen features.

Upping the ante from the original Omni series' LED panels, the new Omni QLEDs now include Quantum Dot technology for better brightness and color, plus full-array local dimming for improved contrast, as well as support for Dolby Vision IQ that senses the ambient light in the room and adjusts the screen brightness accordingly. Amazon's new TVs also add HDR10+ Adaptive support, as well as Auto Low Latency mode and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) for gamers.

Last year's theatrical release of the Demon Slayer: Mugen Train and this year's Jujutsu Kaisen 0 -- and more pertinently the craze surrounding the Attack on Titan TV series -- are evidence of this, with their successes boding well for the medium's global status going into the future.

As such, several of the mainstream streaming platforms, aside from anime-specific ones like Crunchyroll, have been acquiring what they can to drive fans to their services. And as jarring as the medium might be to those looking from the outside in -- understandably so depending on what series you're talking about -- many of these shows provide a wide variety of genres and premises to appeal to the uninitiated.
