Would You Believe It, Fallout 4 Actually Exists
Last week thousands of Fallout fans were brought down by the news that the supposed Fallout 4 teaser website was actually just a douche move by some rich kid somewhere on this earth. Mot cool, even though we all know that Bethesda is working on a sequel to one of the best RPG experiences ever released.
Well, here’s something a bit more concrete. Leaked by Kotaku, documents surrounding the casting call for the voice actors has revealed that Bethesda are hard at work on Fallout 4, and it is indeed set in Boston.

The rumours of a Boston set Fallout have been swimming around for months now, but these new documents serve as more viable evidence that this is indeed the plan. What is interesting is that the documents never actually mention the word “Fallout”, but it is clear that the scripts are attached to the title. I mean, what other game series do you know that starts with the words “War. War never changes.” If that doesn’t mean these belong to a Fallout title, I don’t know what will.
On top of that, and leaning more towards the game’s setting, the script references the Commonwealth Minutemen. In the Fallout universe, the Commonwealth is the name given to the area of Massachusetts, after the end of the nuclear war that decimated the entire planet. This links up with old rumours that the new Fallout title would be set here, and more specifically in Boston.
So it’s not official word, but it’s the most concrete evidence we’ve had yet on Fallout 4, especially after the hoax last week. Who is behind the development seat will be interesting to see, but I’m sure most of us are hoping for Bethesda Game Studios to take the helm this time.
I mean, we don’t exactly want another New Vegas, do we?
