Fallout 5 should go back to where it started: California

Posted on

Fallout 5 is far from over. As Todd Howard, director / executive producer / Vault Boy-esque mascot from Bethesda Game Studios says, Fallout 5 will follow The Elder Scrolls 6, which is still in pre-production. Maybe we’ll be able to play into the 2030s, with climate change.

Far from it, as soon as the new Bethesda RPG is mentioned, we’ll think about where it will be set. When The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced with a teaser of some of the mountains we were going to do, we immediately tried to figure out what it meant to be set in High Rock or Hammerfell or whatever. Of course, the first question that needs to be asked when we squint at the very distant prospects of Fallout 5 is: where to go next?

When Bethesda takes over the Fallout series, it sets the formula. Each person starts and then moves to a different slice of the USA with their own historical monuments to deface and local fauna to monsterize. It’s easy to imagine who next repeats the trick. Fallout New York maybe, where atomic pizza rats fight radcats over scraps in broken bodegas.
