that was just a rumor. I'm not saying it won't be in Boston. But the guy who said he saw Beth people scoping out Boston and developing the game set there was lying.
There was a fair chunk of foreshadowing for Boston in Fallout 3 - The androids, the fact its part of a 'Commonwealth' in 2277... The Commonwealth was also mentioned in a three of the DLC's... So I'd say it was at least seriously considered back when they released the game.
I guess I am in the minority who want to see a non-US location?
Personally, I'd prefer to see a Fallout set in the UK (maybe London?).
If we're talking strictly about the US, then I'd want to see Chicago or St. Louis. We've stuck solely to the coasts it seems for most of the games, so let's bring it to the Midwest for a change. --- IRON MAIDEN IS MY RELIGION! Gamertag: Demigod Elessar
I think we are strictly thinking US. The series needs to maintain its 50's american culture theme, and they also wouldn't be able to use any existing factions if they use a non-US location. I'm sure one of the original devs had said something along the lines of no other countries at some point. --- "I think all you gotta do is find that little black kid, and doesn't that start the whole backdoor option?" -WHiTE_LickR
