E3 2015 – Fallout 4 setting, narrative detailed

It’s official, Fallout 4 will be based in the city of Boston. Incredible landmarks such as Fenway Park, Bunker Hill Monument, and the Massachusetts State House will be fully rendered in the post apocalyptic style that you have come to expect from the Fallout Franchise.

Fallout 4 has been in development since Fallout 3 was released in 2009. Unlike previous entries in the Fallout universe, Fallout 4 begins before the actual nuclear bombs drop. For the first time you will get to experience the nuclear apocalypse first hand and run for shelter in Vault 111. This is when the story gets a little interesting: The main protagonist in the game is the sole survivor of Vault 111 and exits the vault for the first time 200 years later. As far as how you will survive 200 years, who knows; but the creative minds at Bethesda will surely think of something.

The VATS system will make a return in Fallout 4 as well, and looks just as gory as you’d expect it would. This time slowing time even more, and allowing you more control over where you shoot.

Fallout 4’s graphics had recently come under fire by Alistair McNally, a developer at Bioware, for being too similar to Fallout 3. Judging from what we’ve seen today, the environments definitely have left us impressed, but only time will tell if it can live up to its hype.
