The Fallout TV show didn't need to use CGI to create the Wasteland because it found the perfect real-life location

Prime Video's live-action TV adaptation of Fallout is visually stunning – and those wild desert sets are real.

Instead of throwing some sand under a green screen, The Wasteland was filmed in Namibia on the Skeleton Coast. This part of the desert is home to Kolmanskop, a ghost town filled with traces of once-beautiful homes – just like the one Lucy entered in episode two. The dry climate of the Namib Desert preserves not only the ruins of these houses, but also their decoration and furniture. The former mining town, located in a part of the desert known as the “Forbidden Zone,” was completely abandoned by 1956, with a private ghost tour company turning it into a tourist attraction in 2002.
