GPU manufacturer Nvidia has entered the world of game development by making its very own Fallout 4 mod.

Entitled Vault 1080, this third-party mod adds a new vault that Nvidia claimed is "equal in size to the other vaults spread across the commonwealth". The denizens of said vault have formed a religion that worships the darkness, for some reason, probably because they're fans of Nvidia's atmospheric lighting effects - which you can see in action in the trailer below:

"Vault 1080 uses its terrifyingly realistic light and shadow as the core of its experience," Nvidia's Steve Williams said of Vault 1080 on the company's blog. "Volumetric lighting features extensively - in ways not seen in the standard game - while shadows are more realistic and velvety than ever. This is thanks to HBAO+ and its control of ambient occlusion, which creates authentic depths anywhere a light source is blocked, no matter how small or fleeting."

Vault 1080 will be available from Bethesda.net on PC come 2nd September.
