I get where you are coming from, but a post apocalyptic New York could be really cool and the other games weren't set in New York. So yeah, I get what you are saying but this could be really cool.

well I gues Fallout could exist only in US, since it has that music, deserts, classic US guns, houses and cars etc.. its all about 20 century US culture and dont forget about the music, also alot of US oldies top songs.. 1950 if Im not mistaken..

anyways it can only exist in the US.. in different country it would not be Fallout...

and about new york.. its a cool city and great place for gaming.. but fallout needs New Vegas type deserts, mountains and deserted areas with a lot of lonesome roads and alot of travel from city to city... they should make at least 3 cities and alot of desert and fallout type stuff between!!!

I have to disagree with you there Tvensky, though Fallout may be all about 20th Century US culture; it doesn't mean they can't venture out across the world.

20th century Britain? British culture?
There is so much Bethesda can do.

American's seem to underestimate the power of their media. Western Europe since the 50's has been pretty much "Americanised", especially in Britain, there really isn't much of a cultural difference, the average European knows more about the US than the average American knows about Europe, heck you could probably even argue that the average European knows more about the states than the average American, bottom line there's not much of a culture shock.

If you look into the Fallout universe they've mentioned, Europe, Africa and Asia but we don't know anything about them, a change of setting would be nice.

But come on New York? there's nothing exiting about that we've seen New York explored several times in games, in fact in any medium, more Song's, Movies, TV series have been made about NYC than any other city in the world, NYC is an over used city it's getting really boring now,

I mean come on, there are other American cities, what about Chicago, L.A, New Orleans I would much rather see a post apocalyptic version of those cities than New York. Don't get me wrong I love the city but it's just really, really, really overused, over referenced, over done in general.

If I'm not mistaken, it was just America that was nuked in the world of Fallout. I may however be mistaken.

I wish it was FO4, I absolutely love the series.

Well according to some intros of the Fallout series, it's safe to say that a majority of the planet was affected. I recall from Mothership Zeta you look down on Earth and see it devastated as well.

Fallout 1:

"In 2077, the storm of world war had come again. In two brief hours, most of the planet was reduced to cinders. And from the ashes of nuclear devastation, a new civilization would struggle to arise."

Fallout 2:

"The earth was nearly wiped clean of life. A great cleansing, an atomic spark struck by human hands, quickly raged out of control. Spears of nuclear fire rained from the skies. Continents were swallowed in flames and fell beneath the boiling oceans. Humanity was almost extinguished, their spirits becoming part of the background radiation that blanketed the earth."

although it does say the rest of the world burned according to america in the fallout world they were pretty much considered themselves as the only civlised nation. that and the rest of the world kind of broke down, so you had mad max in Austrlia doing his thing, the vault dweller doing his thing in america, that guy from russia who lives in the metro station or in the shadow of chernobyl(see what i did there?) i have never seen Europe in nuclear devestation (excluding russia) so i can't say anything for them.

ps. watch a movie called Blast from the Past the first part of the movie is very fallout the rest of the movies eh not so much.

i agree New york is so over used and i live here, they need a new setting to pick, and if they are ganna do new york do it right (im looking at you mw3)
ps3_pwns  +   686d ago
fallout new york wont looking nothing like the real new york lol. and new york would offer the best game world and gameplay.

new york
-subways and sewers
-big monuments statue of liberty/ big buildings
- ocean/ the great lakes for water exploration
_ diverse cast / interesting characters
- gangs of new york
- tons of buildings and computers to hack/pick

set in new york fallout 4 can be the best of fallout 3 and new vegas combined.

other options are
michigan and the surronding areas
down south and the surronding areas do a mix and match type deal.

you said:

"new york

_ diverse cast / interesting characters

Just wanted to point out that these are pretty thematic environments for most major cities in the world, minus the "great lakes and ocean" part where some cities are landlocked. I think these environments would still be boring and overdone in a NYC setting, that's all.

All cities have "big buildings", subways, and sewers.. interesting cast of characters and hackable and interactive environmental objects can exist in any game, it's up to the developer to implement those

When will you people just get over the fact that nobody wants to do a game using Britain that isn't medieval. They keep asking for a GTA set in London even tho Rockstar has flat out said it wont happen again because London is boring.

A post apocalyptic France? Why would you even? Whats the premise? The french got tired of being pansies and staged a 2 second uprising before every other country in the world told them to shut the hell up?

Both Britain, with it's raw industrial cities like Manchester and Liverpool and France with it's idyllic countryside to be a contrast to it's dark poverty-ridden banlieu's have the potential to be great locations.

To me asking for Fallout series to be in any other country, is like asking for Metro 2033 to be anywhere but Russia.
klearlyc  +   686d ago
Every board I have read comments on have this debate. There are IPs out there that has post apocalyptic elements but that is not fallout. If you spend any time googling Fallout you will notice some of the marketing material has the phrase, "America's leading post apocalyptic simulation." If you listen to Brian Fargo and some of the original crew and even Todd Howard describe the IP you will note they view the universe as one in which America and how it envisions the future and the post nuclear future vis-a vis the fifties and post WWII era. All that fear, hope and propaganda of the time. So that doesn't mean the world didn't have those same fear and that you couldn't transpose those qualities and style to another world city but then you lose that je ne sais quoi feel of Fallout. Of course not to mention the wild west elements, the frontier exploration and even manifest destiny of taking control of a harsh environment and then spreading that contol and influence. And then there's all the iconic popular america references that's embedded in the story. It wouldn't fit if you were to tell that from a non american setting.
aliengmr  +   686d ago
While NYC certainly isn't my first choice Taking Fallout overseas would be like setting Metro or STALKER in the US.

The very core of the series is its satirical looking at the "atomic-age" America. Moving it to another country would ruin it.

I am all for any location as long as its in the US, because that's where it belongs.

If you look at some of the following tweet, it sounds like Pete Hines may have been kidding. Him and the guy he is responding to know each other, and he may just be screwing with him. Who knows, maybe it isn't Fallout related but I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

Pretty positive it will be set in the Commonwealth (Boston).

Don't really care much to be honest, Fallout 3 was one of my favorite games this generation and regardless of where Fallout 4 takes place I will probably get it day one.

I dont understand why developers still even think of New York as a setting for games.. Aside from space or the post apocalyptic setting, NYC is arguable the MOST common setting for videogames (and movies for that matter)

Either way, I'm intereseted in whatever it is that Bethesda has up their sleeves here, even if it's not Fallout
violents  +   686d ago
I don't see how they are getting anything new York related out of that video.

And there is some twitter stuff denying it being fallout related. It would be really cool if they were going to dig up that prey 2 game again but the video didn't have that feel to me either.
porkChop  +   686d ago
It's not Fallout related according to Bethesda. It's something else.
ps3_pwns  +   686d ago
we dont want something esle we want fallout 4 and unless bethesda dont want to make money then they will give us fallout 4 and not some crappy skyrim 2 or any other random thing. this is what gets companys bad sales is when they dont listen lol.
porkChop  +   686d ago
I don't think this game is being developed by Bethesda though. They recently said that they'll be making more noise this year as a "publisher", so this is probably being developed by one of the studios that Bethesda owns. Bethesda is probably hard at work on Fallout 4 for next gen, and with a console switch it would make sense for them to take their time with a game of that size.

And the record in the teaser is a recording of Air on the G String by Johann Sebastian Bach, which was written in the early 1700's and first recorded in 1902. So maybe this is a new IP?

Never mind the tweets. ....its Fallout 4. Many leaks and sites like Edge have already outed this game as being developed. They've already began hiring staff for the game and mind you this was like 1 or 2 years ago. Its in Boston this time accounting to the leaks.

Games need developers to work on them, no team can just hiring people in secret, they need to look for staff and ask for certain talents, thus some is clearly going to put 2 and 2 together.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   686d ago
Unfortunately it still seems way too early for any FO4 news. Especially since next gen is pretty much brand new and Bethesda would want to make it a huge game which would take way longer to develop than any previous games. I honestly don't see FO4 coming out any earlier than 2015.
CourierSix  +   686d ago
I'm desperate for FO4, i dont care if its set in Boston or New York. It will be good anyway...hopefully, so long as they take thier time and put a little extra effort in it. Too bad this isnt FO4 news, i really want some solid news about it.

Yay. New York. Great. A setting that is ALWAYS tastefully used in all media and never overused or cliche. I'm really happy. If only you could see the smile on my face Bethesda.

Stefanrules7  +   686d ago
I dont think it should be in another country because england for example has 1 city that doesnt look like a 3rd world country and there are about 7 guns in the whole country. I dont want to play an entire game using a cricket bat as a weapon (again)

wow that is one ignorant comment, said by a person who knows nothing of the world outside your little bubble.

Im from northern england and believe me London is the only city in the country that looks nice, if you ever go to england have a look around birmingham, manchester, liverpool or newcastle outside the city centres. And the only people in the country who have guns are farmers and drug dealers.
