So I began thinking about where Fallout 5 (which won't come anytime soon) could take place. I think having it take place in New Orleans could be cool, we could have all sorts of new creatures to fight like "Radigators." None of the Fallout games have shown us the South (at least not according to my knowledge) so it'd be interesting to see what'd be there!

There are two places I think of that could have potential for a Fallout game.

First one is New York City. For this one,I see it going one of two ways. First would be for the skyscrapers to have somehow survived the apocalypse and are still standing. This could lead to some great verticality,entering the buildings and climbing up them while getting in firefights with raiders while doing so. The second way I can see it,the skyscrapers did fall and have been reduced to rubble,but the vast majority of civilization you would see is underground. In the New York metro,with people having holed up in the stations and somehow having formed a sustainable civilization. You could go above-ground,but there would be scarce amounts of friendly people and way more mutants. Obviously,this is much more like Metro than Fallout,but why not?

Next location that I think would be nice would be Anchorage or just Alaska in general. Still America,and they would have some great creative freedom due to it being so far from the other states. You wouldn't see any familiar factions like the NCR,BOS, or other groups from previous games except for maybe the Enclave(like I said,creative freedom). Maybe some groups like remnant Chinese and American soldiers who have been ghoulified and still wage war believing that the other fired the nukes first and caused the end of the world as they knew it. Also maybe tribals who descended from eskimos and have carried on living the traditional lifestyle hunting radioactive mutants for food.

I think that New York or a full on area around the pitt would be awesome. The DLC fromF3 made me want to know ALOT more of areas like that or even LA would be cool I feel that it would be like a mesh of NV with F3 that would blend well.

I was gonna bring up a suggestion, but you already beat me to it. X'D I really want to see a Fallout game in New Orleans. Imagine the music, the atmosphere, and just the endless areas to explore. It would be sooo much fun! And as you said. I don't think we have one set in the South so it would be new territory for the players. Who knows? It just might happen. Smile

Back in California, maybe Baja California, or even San Francisco. I did a write up a while back of my dream Fallout game. Honestly, I prefer the West Coast to the East Coast. I just find it a far more interesting place. Don't get me wrong, Fallout 3 and 4 are fun, but the backdrop of California/the NCR has far more to offer the narrative that endless post apocalyptic wasteland after endless post apocalyptic wasteland.

Bethesda has this habit of overusing the same tired Wasteland cliches, like Junktown, supermutants and the like. I wanna see society progressing into something new, not just living in metal shacks. I mean seriously, these people have had enough time to build some actual houses...

Yeah, gotta go with @zodiac213 there, New York would be pretty fuckin' awesome. For me, it's the map. I loved Fallout 3 and 4's city areas. Like, a broken cityscape to me is byutiful. Plus, all of the landmarks. Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, etc. I want it now.

They've been referencing the Midwest constantly throughout the newer Fallout games, and so I'm hoping that they pay it a visit sooner or later. Tactics was a terrible game, but the lore it built was really cool, and so seeing it done better would be neat. I could definitely see them setting up some sort of Brotherhood civil war between the East and Midwest, as they're so ideologically opposed after the events of Fallout 4. Even disregarding the story, I'd love to see some of the tactics enemies in a proper 3d game, as the designs are pretty neat.

I'd love to see it take back in DC, see how the wasteland is after the purifier was rebuilt, or see how our lone wanderer is doing. Although I know a lot of people would be heavily disappointed if that happened. Kentucky would be cool, but there just isnt a LOT out there besides for the mountains. Colorado sounds fun. But I think New York would be the best, it has the atsmophere as DC has, but in a bigger stand point. I dont know many creatures that would really be around there though, i guess giant mutated rats? Ravens? Maybe a huge mutant pigeon? Who knows, it all sounds a little dull, but if bethesda knows 1 thing, its how to make up creative ideas for enemies. I just hope the next fallout game, they touch up on the writing, animations, etc. Instead of leaving the modders to fix some of the shit. There could be very interesting quests regarding the statue of liberty, all the different buildings, Like Trump Tower,etc.

That New York idea actually sounds really cool!! It'd be an interesting take on the franchise and I wouldn't mind it being similar to the Metro series. I personally love those games, the atmosphere, the history, etc so having a Fallout game borrow those certain elements could bring a fresh new take on the franchise!

I would love to explore New York, and visit the different landmarks and see how much the city changed after the bombs fell.

@"BagelVolcano" The different landmarks definitley sounds like a great idea, especially since theres a ton of different food places. Im hoping they redo the metro system if they end up doing it in a big city. Boston's metro systems were very disappointing. You could never just get lost in them like you could in fo3

@Eridonn Maybe we can get some hot dog stands around the city Laughing And yeah the metro systems weren't that great in Fallout 4, I didn't really care about them...

Like a lot of people already suggested New Orleans with new creatures and a look at the Southern United States or New York with a big map and maybe under ground sewer city with giant gators.

@"joshwist55" i think they plan on doing the US. Idk if they plan on even doing other countries, but canada is basically a 2nd america, with a little different governmental system. (guess that doesnt really matter though does it)

According to the wiki,Canada was annexed by America during the war with China for 'security' reasons,so having it take place in Canada could happen and still technically take place in the U.S.

I'm not a huge expert on lore or anything, but a game set in an East Asia country like Japan would be cool. China is also an option.

I feel as if China would be more appropriate if we're going foreign because it was America and China flinging nukes at each other. A kind of spin-off game that follows the adventures of the ghoulified Chinese soldier in the submarine from Fallout 4 after he makes his way back from Boston would be cool.

If the next Fallout entry goes western like with New Vegas( and I hope it does), it has to be Texas. It'd be a perfect location.
