After an ample amount of anticipation, Bethesda has finally pulled the curtain of Fallout 4. The game was teased in a recent countdown, with players being met with a debut trailer for the game when time finally ran out. This understandably set the internet ablaze with anticipation for the title, and the new environments for the game almost certainly contributed to that.
While rumors have been swirling in regards to where Fallout 4 would be taking place leading up to its official unveiling, the teaser trailer has confirmed that Boston, Massachusetts will be every fans’ nuke-ridden playground this time around.
As eagle-eyed gamers surely noticed during the newly released footage, there are several key Boston-based landmarks scattered throughout the entirety of the three minute long affair. Most prominent are the Paul Revere statue, Massachusetts State House, and the dilapidated Bunker Hill Monument which can all be seen in the new gameplay snippets.
All of these only cement earlier rumors that Fallout 4 would be taking place in Boston, so this doesn’t come as a massive surprise to those that have been following recent developments. Even still, the setting is sure to have a variety of locales to explore and shoot up, ranging from cities to harbor fronts. Couple the scenery with what appears to be ever-changing weather effects, and players are in for an atmosphere that will undoubtedly be worth exploring.
Furthermore, it’s evident just by looking at the title in action that that it was built with current-gen platforms in mind. Despite initial reports that the game could be coming to Xbox 360 and PS3, that no longer appears to be the case. While this isn’t a happy realization for gamers that are currently limited to the older consoles, it’s just one more incentive to seriously start considering an upgrade. That’s not to rule out the possibility of the software arriving on past-gen hardware, but it doesn’t look likely at this point.
There’s still a lot that Bethesda has yet to unveil about Fallout 4, but that’s sure to change in the coming weeks in the build up to E3 2015. With that in mind, be sure to stay tuned to Game Rant for more details on the next entry in the Fallout franchise.
