Explore Fallout 4’s post-apocalyptic Boston in photos

The real star of a new Fallout game is the city it takes place in. Each location has its own look and feel, and the developers behind the series do a great job of reimagining some of America’s most iconic cities as post-apocalyptic wastelands. For Fallout 4, that star is Boston and its surrounding area. Known as The Commonwealth to those who live there, the city has the elements you’d expect — lots of baseball references and coffee shops — but rendered in the brown-and-grey, burned out aesthetic the Fallout series known for. Over the past week I've spent more than 60 hours in the newest Fallout wasteland, and I couldn’t help but snap some screenshots as I explored (these were all taken in the PS4 version of the game). Naturally, if you want to go in completely fresh, these images contain a few light spoilers, but nothing that will ruin any of the story for you. Fallout 4 launches tomorrow on Xbox One, PS4, and PC — and you can check out our review of the game right here.
