If you don't know anything about the Fallout series, here is a little crash course.
So far, the series has has six games: Fallout, released in 1997, set in Southern California in the year 2161; Fallout 2, released in 1998, set in the year 2241; Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, released in 2001; Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, released in 2004, and the first Fallout game released on consoles; Fallout 3, released in 2008, set in Washington, D.C. in the year 2271; and Fallout: New Vegas, released in 2010, set in Las Vegas in the year 2275.
With the exception of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, the games have been met with critical acclaim and have been successful commercially.
In each game, you play as a different character tasked with different missions, making each game's experience unique and exciting.
And now, five years after the release of Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4 is arriving on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Microsoft Windows (sorry Mac users!). The game is set in Boston.
