Assassin's Creed III will be set on American (or rather, pre-American) soil. So how's about another game in the US?
The latest rumor involves Fallout 4 , which publisher Bethesda has yet to officially announce. That being said, a Reddit tipster has evidence that points towards the upcoming RPG's intriguing environment.
The user's name, "fallout4boston," should say it all. Evidently, Bethesda has been out and about, "scoping out and researching" the historic city, and it also seems that the developer may have a "strong connection" to MIT, which is of course located in Boston. As an interesting side note, the Fallout Wikipedia page cites "The Commonwealth" from Fallout 3 , so Boston might not be a stretch. As for what else to expect from the new franchise entry, that's all up in the air, which is fine for the time being.
For epic RPGs like Fallout , environment and atmosphere are absolutely crucial to the player's immersion. Boston could be fantastic.
