Seventeen years after a nuclear doomsday, Hope County, Montana, has changed in unexpected ways.
Nuclear winter has given way to a "superbloom," creating a lush, colourful landscape that survivors have begun to re-populate with makeshift buildings.
It's a lawless frontier where people are struggling to get by - and you'll be able to experience it all with a friend in co-op, or on your own as a lone gunslinger.
After living through the apocalypse, the survivors in Hope County now face a new threat: the nihilistic Highwaymen, vicious scavengers intent on bleeding the county dry.
When the survivors put out a call for help to combat this deadly threat, you are quickly thrust into the middle of a new battle for the future of Hope County.
The results may look ramshackle, but they'll keep you alive in a fight.
Your Homebase will let you construct powerful weapons and vehicles, giving you more options than ever for explosive, over-the-top action.
When anything and everything can happen, it is never too much to have someone watching your back.
Whether it's Hurk, a boar, or whoever you want, you can recruit an eclectic cast of Guns and Fangs for Hire to fight by your side. You can even play with a friend in co-op.
