Just a question to everyone, Where do you think the new Fallout should take place?
#240 to #2 - anonymous (06/13/2013) [-]
It should take place in a universe where the Fallout games are any good, because then it'd be worth acknowledgement from someone other than the greasy little faggots that play those games here.

Chicago because I live here. If not then California, you would probably get to go to the movie studios and stuff and get cool **** from there, plus Cali is big

they already said it will be back in the Mohave wasteland.
User avatar #232 to #203 - drosenblum (06/12/2013) [-]
He didn't say it would be there. He said that he wouldn't release any information, but that the Mojave Wasteland was a fun place to explore. Due to the fact that Three Dogg will most likely return, and that photographers and interviewers for Bethesda have been spotted at MIT and in Boston, it will most likely be in Boston, but the Mojave Wasteland seems like it would be the least likely possibility.

when a developer drops a bomb like that, it usually is a huge hint.
Besides they were more than likely visiting a promising programmer at MIT.

Montreal/Toronto would be cool. I'm hoping montreal because I live there, but Montreal is an island, so it would be cool to have to go from he South/North shore to the Island to get all the good gear and stuff.

Then again most of Montreal is french, so...

I think it is going to be in Boston, too.

Bethesda said it will be taking place in Boston because that is the 'homeland' of the commonwealth as Zimmer mentions in Fallout 3
#158 to #2 - scoonyer (06/12/2013) [-]
It's unlikely to be anywhere except the U.S. and the fact(well not really a fact, but a hint) three dog will make some sort of appearance means it will probably stay in the east, so I'm guessing New York, Chicago or maybe Miami? But ignoring that I think it would be awesome in San Francisco. I'm from Scotland so don't much know of the geography of the U.S.

rumours say, it will take place in boston
User avatar #152 to #2 - gemleonn (06/12/2013) [-]
They confirmed it was going to be in Boston I believe. Also, 3 Dog from Fallout 3 is supposed to come back, so I'm pretty sure it'd be in Boston. If not, then probably LA, and the story will go off of probably NCR beating the Legion, and trying to convert society back to how it used to be

Australia, just think about the **** there after radiation
User avatar #227 to #124 - drosenblum (06/12/2013) [-]
Most mutations seen in game were due to the nature of the FEV, while some mutations were the combination of the two. Mutations seen in America would be much more drastic than in Australia.

Christ, juts a survival game based in Australia now would be difficult enough without adding radiation
User avatar #117 to #2 - robertolee (06/12/2013) [-]
Its going to take place in Boston. Apparently MIT have entertained guests from the development studio who were taking pictures of the town and interviewing people. I think its going to be based around the Commonwealth with the Androids and probably crazy scientists. A great idea because I loved Big MT DLC, basically stayed there for about 20 hours longer than I should have it was that good.
#109 to #2 - anonymous (06/12/2013) [-]

User avatar #106 to #2 - ICEDgrunge (06/12/2013) [-]
Being that the past two games have very much strayed away from the integral setting of fallout (California), I think it should be revisited. I'd love to see California revisited, and to feel the impact both the Vault Dweller and Chosen One left years later. I think that that is likely to come, as I'm sure the developers would love to be able to recreate the world they made 20 years ago with the technology they have now. However due to the fact that Three-Dog is coming back, it might be the capital wasteland again. I'm not particularly excited for this, I thought FO3 was wrapped up, and I don't see where another serious source of conflict can occur after the events of that game came to a head. Ultimately, I'd love to see the game take place in Europe, but I feel that if they were going to do that, they would have handed over the rights to make it as they did to Obsidian for NV to another company that has the setting to achieve that first hand. Canada would be great due to the history it has in Fallout. Canada being Annexed means that there is most likely Enclave involvement in some sort, but who knows. The thing I really want to see is snow and forests. Canada would be a great place for that I believe even given the atomic war, I believe. Boston has also been mentioned, that'd be a good place as well, and New York could be done as well, a great big city would be great, given that we had a taste of that in the Capital Wasteland, and yet we never even scratched the surface on navigating through cities.
User avatar #229 to #106 - drosenblum (06/12/2013) [-]
The issue with revisiting the Core Region would be that the main aspect and story of the core region was the super mutants created at Mariposa Military Base. However, due to the FEV "correcting" the supermutant haploid gametes, they are sterile. So if the Core Region was to be revisited many years later, the supermutant remnants seen in Fallout New Vegas on BlackMountain would most likely have all passed away. However, when visiting West Tek, or the Glow, the vault dweller does see intact containers filled with FEV, even though it may be contaminated, there is always the possibility for more mutants.
User avatar #231 to #229 - ICEDgrunge (06/12/2013) [-]
Exactly. Who knows man. There could end up being a situation that reflects the actions of the East Coast Super Mutants as well in which a new 'Master' mutant, or simply a psychotic ruler of some sort finds a source of the FEV, as you said possible in West Tek or the Glow, and creates super mutants, and later the Mutants use wastelanders taken from the Core and turns them into Mutants as they did in Vault 87. I still think there's a plethora of things they could do in the west. It's just a matter of if they decide to do it or not.

It will be based in Boston. They've sort of hinted at it and they have had researchers at M.I.T and around boston taking pictures.

Not meaning to be a buzzkill, but to everyone suggesting a different country/continent, Europe was obliterated by a decade of conventional warfare with nukes added to it at the end, China (and most likely most of asia then) was nuked to ************* oblivion, Soviet Union was most likely nuked to **** too, Africa wasn't mentioned at all (even though new vegas already kinda did desert, it would be pretty badass surviving in the radioactive desert with mutated lions and **** ). South America was left unmentioned i'm pretty sure, so the only things left are Canada, USA and Mexio.

Hold up a ******* minute.

Imagine Fallout in Alaska (a full game, not only an expansion) and northern/northern Canada. I'm pretty sure no game has had an arctic wasteland before, that would be ******* awesome.

tl;dr europe asia and russia are annihilated, no one knows about africa and south america, only things left are usa canada and mexico, fallout in a frozen wasteland would be ******* badass
User avatar #225 to #88 - drosenblum (06/12/2013) [-]
Still, it would be possible for there to be life in areas such as china or russia, seeing as megaton survived the nuclear missiles when they were turned away from vault 101. You are right in saying that Europe was already in ruins due to the nuclear nature of the research wars. Still, even though it would be possible for it to take place in another country or continent, I highly doubt it will, as the FEV was only present in the US undergoing further testing. It was originally used to counteract the Chinese use of biological weapons by transforming the DNA structure into a quadruple helix, but they then decided to use it to try and create supersoldiers after they saw the effects. Yet, even though supermutants have played a large role in most fallout games, they are sterile due to the FEV "correcting" the haploid gamete cells in creatures that sexually reproduce, so if the game takes place with much time passing, supermutants would be non-existant(unless there would be another batch of supermutants created, even though unlikely). Well, that was a somewhat pointless train of thought, but whatever.
User avatar #121 to #88 - diablojoe (06/12/2013) [-]
>Nuked to ****

Is that implying that the US wasn't also nuked to **** ?

I'm not sure that another country would be the best course of action anyway because of how much of a change up and the sheer level of world development it would need seeing as how no nations outside the USA are really described except maybe Mexico in New Vegas (but it's not as though Bethesda have difficulty creating lore for their games) . But a DLC in the UK (Britfag myself) might be nice seeing as how it has been confirmed that there are still people living there
User avatar #185 to #121 - kermo (06/12/2013) [-]
US survived it the most, since they had the vaults. other parts are most likely completely dead
User avatar #219 to #185 - drosenblum (06/12/2013) [-]
Not entirely true. As the vaults were few, and could only house up to 1,000 people(except the overcrowded vault), not many were housed by the vaults. Also, due to the fact that the vaults were social experiments, many vaults were all killed due to the nature of the tests, like vault eleven. Megaton is comprised of people who didn't get into the vaults, meaning that they survived the nuclear missile strikes. This means that it is very possible that there would still be survivors in areas such as china, russia, etc. However, Europe was already devastated by the resource wars and the nuclear weapons strikes that entailed. Even though it would be possible for a fallout in a foreign country, it would be highly unlikely due to the fact that all lore would have to be original, not that new lore would be too difficult, but many players enjoy seeing lore return from previous games. It has been rumored that it will take place in the Commonwealth AKA Boston.
User avatar #189 to #185 - diablojoe (06/12/2013) [-]
There's nothing to suggest that other nations didn't take measures to survive the apocalypse
User avatar #111 to #88 - ICEDgrunge (06/12/2013) [-]
That's what I'm hoping for. Canada. It was annexed near the end of the Great War. I predict that due to this the Enclave may just have been tied into Canada. It's a far shot, but it just may be so. My dream for fallout as well is to have to traverse forests and snow. It'd be one of the best settings of any game they've made.

User avatar #110 to #53 - ICEDgrunge (06/12/2013) [-]
Northern, Eastern, Southern, Western, Central, kinda-central, off-central, south-central and sort-of-cental Europe were all nuked to **** from what I've understood. It'd be great to see a game take place in places like like that, Russia, China, but the war took its toll heavily on those nations and are ultimately destroyed, unfortunately. Plus the language barrier. It'd be hard as **** to explain how a scandinavian nation all speak english, it'd have to be some kind of brain implant/pipboy translator cop-out, and it'd be pretty hard to really pull off. Regardless, I'd love to see that despite all of this.

To be honest, (and yes this idea is taken straight from FPS Russia)
Fallout Origins, and FPS where you play through some of those fights in the war, Alaska, wherever, then you get thrown in a cryo-chamber or something, and the game ends.
Next game you wake up and it's a normal Fallout game and you have to adjust to life as a 250 year old dude somewhere in the northern part of North America, Ronto maybe? Or possibly NYC/Commonwealth?

First of all, I really don't like Japan. But as much as I'd like to have a fallout-ish game set in any other country, Fallout needs this US vibe.
