With a new Fallout rumored to be on the way, we take a look at possible cities that would make a great Fallout.
None of the mentioned cities in the article appeal to me, to be honest, and that's mostly because they'll just be American/western cities AGAIN, and I've seen those settings more than enough TBH. Go for something a bit more original, like Seoul, or a Japanese city we haven't seen before, or even the many islands of Indonesia and introduce screwed up wildlife. Shenzhen, Shanghai or Chengdu (China) would be nice as well. If they have to do a western city, then make it Madrid or Barcelona or another South-European city, or go for a South-American city like Rio. I know they probably won't take the Fallout series out of the USA, but unless they can come up with a real original vision, I have pretty much seen enough American cities in video games for a while.
America is a physically large country and there is much of it that hasn't been explored or even mentioned in Fallout yet -- especially when you consider that all of Canada counts as part of the USA in this video game. To your point, however, it could be interesting to see an international locale such as Rio De Janeiro (Fallout: Amazon), Paris (Fallout: Eurozone), or something Asian (Fallout: The Three Kingdoms).
The problem is that the Fallout series is centered around 50's Americana and the Vault Program (also integral to the series) only takes place in America. So unless they do a retcon, we'll likely never see a Fallout game taking place on foreign soil...at least not a main title anyway.
The Fallout universe is American. It belongs in America and should stay there. Anywhere else would be weird.
I'd love London but they'll never take it out of America. Something like http://p1.pichost.me/i/69/1...
London would be sweet, and any big city in Asia would be amazing as well.
I don't remember the Thames being that straight and st Pauls being just down the road from Parliament. Sorry, I'm being a bit a**l... it would make a cool setting.
i was under the impression that boston was confirmed or has that now been scrapped??
They needed to write something. I believe it was confirmed to be Boston, at E3 it will be official.
LONDON! I think we need more games set in good old England :)
Boston is the last place I would ever want Fallout to go. But I've given up on expecting anything great from Bethesda's Fallout.
Id agree perhaps that London or Paris would be good. I love New York but how many times have we seen that on film/game? The US has been covered pretty well in Fallout from Washington to Vegas to Pittsburgh (DLC) and even a New Orleans type environment in Point Lookout. If its has to be US, perhaps pick somewhere a bit more novel in US like Florida or Texas.
Manhattan, New York City. The subways would be great.
I'm from Boston and from what I can recall TLoU is the only title to touch that city. Would love to see it in ruins :)
I've said it before and I'll say it again, Detroit would be perfect. Setting it in the D also gives you a chance to see what Windsor looks like too.
Fallout Japan would kick ass.
