A fan created a detailed map for a hypothetical Fallout game set in New Orleans. The map is so interesting and varied that some fans think the Big Easy would be a perfect location for a future Fallout title.
Fallout 5 is still without a release date or official reveal, and seeing that Bethesda has confirmed that The Elder Scrolls 6 will come first, Fallout 5 is likely still a long way away. However, that hasn’t stopped Fallout fans from daydreaming about what Fallout 5‘s location might be. Recently, one fan explained why New Orleans would make for a perfect Fallout setting, and another fan, possibly drawing inspiration from the other, created a detailed map that shows what a Fallout game set in New Orleans might look like.
One Piece of Amazon Crossover Content For Fallout 4 Seems Too Good To Pass Up On
The Amazon Fallout show is picking up a lot of steam, and one piece of potential crossover content between the show and Fallout 4 seems obvious.
Reddit user omega-lf posted a mockup of a New Orleans-based Fallout map. Along with the map, the user provided some fan-made lore for the post-apocalyptic city. They explained that although New Orleans was not hit directly by nuclear weapons, radioactive hurricanes caused its levees to break, flooding significant portions of the city. Some historical areas, like the French Quarter, are still above water. The countryside surrounding the city is hostile with human communities peppered throughout it. A network of small rivers allows the user to traverse the map’s rural, swampy regions, while larger rivers cut across the whole map. In the post’s comments section, the Fallout fan offered plenty more lore regarding the region’s factions, enemies, history, and more.
Many fans were impressed by the creation and voiced their support that New Orleans would make for a great Fallout location. However, others worried that the map featured too much water, which is usually a useless facet of Fallout games. But, to be fair to omega-lf, they explained that the water could be utilized for travel purposes, something that Bethesda could probably manage following some of the impressive features seen in Starfield.
New Orleans is one of the more unique cities in the United States, earning its spot as a location in other popular games like Red Dead Redemption 2. Its combination of French, Southern, and Caribbean influences creates a unique atmosphere that could be utilized in many ways within a future Fallout game.
Although fans are probably disappointed that the series’ next entry is still a long way out, they still have good reason to be excited for 2024, especially after Todd Howard compared this year’s Fallout show to Fallout 5. He claimed that the show is so well-made and respectful to its source material that it could have been a Fallout game all on its own.
Fallout is a post-apocalyptic RPG franchise created by Interplay Entertainment and developed by Black Isle Studios, before Bethesda Softworks took over the IP in 2004. The series features a retrofuturistic style following a nuclear war that devastated the game’s world. Players typically inhabit a Vault Dweller, someone who remained safe in an underground shelter, appearing in the post-apocalyptic world where a problem needs to be solved. While the older games were more tactical RPGs, Fallout 3 took the franchise into the first person shooter genre, while also retaining the RPG elements.
