Fallout 4 / New Fallout 2013 / ‘Fallout 4’ rumored details feature changes compared to ‘Fallout 3’ and ‘Skyrim’ / Out with super mutants in with ghouls? / New Bethesda game / 2013 Bethesda / Fallout 4 PS3 X Box

Some possible details have popped up online in regards to the upcoming rumored video game, “Fallout 4.” According to a report by GamingBolt on Jan. 11, the sequel will take place in Boston with a mix of “cyberpunk and retro-futurism.” It also features several gameplay and storyline changes when compared to “Fallout 3” and the experience system in “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.” You can check out some screens from the latest “The Elder Scrolls” title in the slideshow at the top of this article and the details below (courtesy of GamingBolt):

  • First and foremost, the game will take place in Boston, and be kind of a direct sequel to Fallout 3 with a few groups returning.
  • From what it sounds like, “The Institute” is pretty much the downtown DC or New Vegas of this game. Boston is going to be unlike anything we’ve seen in a Fallout game before, with buildings more on par with cyberpunk and retro-futurism.
  • Androids play a big part in this game. The railroad from Fallout 3 is a faction. The enemies of the railroad is “the Plantation” — a group who force Androids to farm so that Humans can get food. The Institute is highly advanced and probably obtained or built their own GECK to start a farm.
  • Due to complaints about using Super Mutants and the Brotherhood of Steel in Fallout 3 excessively and going against the lore too much, Bethesda has decided to avoid using these groups. Bethesda wants to make a new “race” (think Ghoul, Super Mutant) which will be central to Boston. Bethesda is currently looking at Lovecraftian fiction since Boston is around “Lovecraft Country”.
  • Bethesda has no plans to reinvent the leveling up system to make it more like Skyrim and want to make Fallout 4 more distinct from Skyrim since of the complaints that Oblivion and Fallout 3 were too similar. Bethesda is thinking about introducing a system, similar to Skyrim, where your skills can level up if you perform certain tasks.
