Modern technology gives us many things.

Prime Video's new series inspired by the game looks equal parts haunting and thrilling

Prime Video has finally released a first look at its upcoming show based on the popular video game series Fallout , and it looks like it will closely follow the plot of the game series.

Amazon Studios revealed Tuesday in a press release that The series will premiere exclusively on April 12 , in more than 240 countries and territories around the world."

Like the game, the Fallout The series takes place in a dystopian version of the USA after a devastating nuclear war. Amazon said hello Fallout as one of the greatest video game series of all time and a "story of the haves and have-nots in a world where there is almost nothing to have."

The stars of the series include (Yellowjacket), Walton Goggins (The hateful eight), and Aaron Moten (Emancipation), and is written by Westworld creator Jonathan Nolan.

These fresh images give us our first look at protagonist Lucy (played by Purnell), a member of the underground Vault community, along with some fearsome mutants and the Brotherhood of Steel's machine-perfect soldiers. We can't be sure if these mechanical warriors are CGI or humans in fancy robotic suits.

Turning popular video games into series and movies remains a big deal for streamers. More recently, Five Nights at Freddys, (FNAF) a popular horror-based video game, scored successful numbers at the box office after its premiere in October. FNAF was also Peacock's biggest launch, where it was released alongside its theatrical launch.

Amazon is clearly hoping to strike game-to-series gold, as Max recently did with the blockbuster Bella Ramsey, starring The last of us. Of course, he could also be content with the more measured success of Castlevania:Nocturne, the second installment in the vampire-based game series, which has been renewed for a second season on Netflix.

Amazon, like other streaming platforms, has recently canceled highly anticipated shows, so Fallout it must come out of the gate floating.

These stills look interesting, but we won't be able to begin judging the series' chances without seeing the first full trailer. Maybe next year.
