5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT…FALLOUT 4
THREE YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT
As far as we’re aware, development on a new Bethesda project, other than Skyrim, has been ongoing since early 2012. That would have given some of the team a break between shipping Skyrim and moving over to a new Fallout title, although it would likely have been early concepts only at that stage.

A BOSTON SETTING
Rumours abound that Boston, Massachusetts will be the setting for the next Fallout. It all started after reports that Bethesda researchers were looking at MIT. This ties nicely into some of the background story as The Institute is located in The Commonwealth, the new name for the Boston, Maryland region.


EVERYONE’S ON IT
Now that Skyrim DLC is complete, Bethesda’s design teams should all be working on a new game. We imagine many might be working on new projects, but with the next-gen consoles in full flow, Fallout is the brand that the team is going to be putting its full weight behind.

THE HOAXES KEEP COMING
We’ve had fake websites and erroneous copyright filings to distract us and we wouldn’t be surprised if even more Fallout hoax announcements manage to make their way to your eyes and ears in the coming months. Bethesda is keeping quiet for the time being.

RETURNING CHARACTERS
Ron Perlman said in an AMA on Reddit he doesn’t have any game work coming up, but then he really only has one line. One character who may be returning is the radio host Three Dog. Voice actor Erik Todd Dellums said in an interview that he would be returning after his appearance in Fallout 3.
