Fallout 4 introduces us to post-apocalyptic Boston in debut trailer

We now know Fallout 4 will be taking place in Boston thanks to Bethesda publishing the game's debut trailer.


Bethesda announced Fallout 4 is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this morning and released its first trailer. Thanks to information given within the trailer, we now know we’ll be adventuring through the post-apocalyptic version of Boston, Massachusetts.

The trailer first highlights a home that’s been torn by a nearby nuclear detonation. While we make our way through the home, we’re presented with flashbacks of what the house used to look like prior to the nuclear blast, which would then flash forward to present day. Once we leave the house, we see flashbacks again of what we assume are citizens attempting to flee incoming nuclear attack, heading towards a vault. We’re then shown Vault 111 opening and the Vault-Dweller making his way into the wasteland.

The wasteland shown points to Boston as its setting as we can see a number of notable monuments, such as the Bunker Hill Monument, Paul Revere’s statue, and the Massachusetts State House, among other things. Boston has been a long-rumored location for Fallout 4, although shortly after each rumor popped up, Bethesda shot them down. It appears the publisher wanted to keep the location under wraps for a long time, but with the release of the game’s trailer, they’ve pretty much confirmed what we suspected all along.
