Last month, at a remote disused air-defense base outside of Leningrad, upwards or 300 Russian Fallout fans recreated post-apocalyptic California in a live-action role-playing game based on Fallout.
There are a lot of fans of “Fallout” game across the world. In Russia this electronic entertainment piece is widely recognized too. Sometimes the anticipation to game goes so strong that devoted people are trying to transfer the gameplay to real life, stating that some Russian abandoned locations are a perfect fit for an image of “New California” after it was bombed by nuclear missiles.
Brothers of steel, rangers, peaceful citizens, raiders and many others are those who you can meet if to visit one of those locations. “Game is so attractive when it’s played for real that sometimes you even forget that this is the game”, says one of the participants. “Especially if you try to keep the quality of the costumes and everything as much high and close to the game as possible”, he adds.
I see a lot of modified airsoft guns in those pics - you should check them all out.
