Fallout 4 Is Real, Set In Boston

Fallout 4 Is Real, Set In Boston

I know Fallout fans must have been more than a bit perturbed with the elaborate hoax which was carried out a last week, but there’s reason to hope for Fallout 4, because as Kotaku has uncovered, the game does exist — and its set in Boston, Massachusetts.

Kotaku got hold of the leaked voice acting and casting call documents of Fallout 4, and although said documents never include the word “Fallout”, the contents therein leaves no room for guessing what said project is.

The project is code-name “The Institute”, and the first line of one of its pages starts with “War. War never changes”, perhaps the single most recognized line in any Fallout game.

It discusses the main character’s great great-grandfather, who served in the army in 1945. Expecting that the bombs that ended World War II would be a harbinger of absolute atomic warfare, the narrator expresses surprise that it took until the 21st century for the world to end in nuclear fire.

Another document makes reference to the Commonwealth Minutemen. In Fallout lore, the Commonwealth is the post-apocalyptic name of Massachusetts. Kotaku has all the details.

Hopefully details will be unleashed soon by publisher Bethesda about platforms and who’s actually developing the title.

The last Fallout game was New Vegas, released on October 19th, 2013, and developed by Obsidian Entertainment.

Are you excited? Let me know in the comments!
