Fallout 4’s entire map leaked

2 min read


Fallout 4 is coming! In just under a week, many of you will, I suspect, suddenly come down with some sort of mysterious malady that keeps you bedridden – unable to go to work or school. There’s been a wealth of unfortunate leaks before the game sees commercial release; we’ve been inundated with screenshots, videos, lists of the game’s perks and even some bits of the story.

And now you can see the game’s entire map. Captured and stitched together by the chaps at Game Revolution, we can get a glimpse of how big Fallout 4’s post-apocalyptic Boston is. And it certainly looks big. While I won’t attempt to do the maths and embarrass myself once again, it certainly seems like there’s a suitably large area to explore.


In an interview with Digital Spy earlier this year, Bethesda’s Todd Howard said that Fallout 4’s map is “about the same size” as Skyrim’s.

“I avoid answering that, and I’ll tell you why. If you look at our previous stuff, it’s kind of like that. We don’t actually measure it like that. Because Skyrim is one size, but the mountains take up a lot of space.

That’s not really a game place, it’s in your way, you have to go around it, so we’re not really doing that. In the city, it’s very dense, but there is no load – like in Fallout 3, there’s a load – for areas of the city, we don’t do that. So it’s very dense, the buildings are tall, and a lot of them are open, so you can just walk in and around, so… it’s big. I wouldn’t say, you know, if you played Skyrim, I couldn’t tell you it’s X bigger, so we’re just saying it’s about the same size.”

Fallout 4 is hitting your PCs and new-gen consoles next week.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Mossel

    200 years into the future and they still use the imperial system…damn ‘muricans.

    • Hammersteyn

      And they drive on the wrong side of the road.

      • Mossel

        Cannot. Deal.

      • PRAFTD

        What are you talking about? Almost the entire world drives on the right side of the road. That’s one thing Americans got right. Pretty much only former British colonies drive on the left.

        • Hammersteyn

          Really? Wow, foot in mouth right now

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      There is no hope.

  • Hammersteyn

    Dafuq? This game has more leaks than the Iraqi navy

    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

      Their Navy, or their submarine?

      • Snowlockk

        In the end it’s the same thing.

      • Hammersteyn

        Their version of submarines are ships that sunk

        • Greylingad[CNFRMD]


  • ????????????High By The Beach ????????????

    The tangents Todd threw with this response would make Pythagorus (SP?) jealous.

  • Pieter Kruger

    Doesn’t seem THAT big if a square is 60m and almost half the map looks to be water? What am I missing???

    • Hammersteyn

      Scuba gear

      • Brady miaau

        to hunt down all the little question marks? Damn. not again.

        • Hammersteyn

          Would be nice to see what radiation does to the fish

          • Brady miaau

            Could be interesting, a true under water system? Hmm. Yeah, I could go for that.

            As long as it is not turn them into question marks

            Batman. Witcher 3. I have more or less had enough of question marks.

          • Marc O Polo

            Just go to Japan and you can see in real life

          • Hammersteyn


        • Captain JJ the Goo

          I’m too obsessive to have that in my life twice in one year.

      • lol

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      It’s like Skyrim, only there aren’t mountains everywhere so it will feel bigger.

  • Loftus

    I think this game is being over Hyped with all the “leaks”

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      I’m just ignoring all articles and just scrolling down to the comments for funz. The only person who can overhype it for you is yourself in the end.

      • Loftus

        I am actually not hyped at all for this game.

  • Charl van der Merwe

    “leaks” , “marketing” , “Hype generation”

    All the same thing 😉

    • Hammersteyn

      Well leak something good then. Not a map the size of a napkin

      • Charl van der Merwe

        Its for that authentic leak feel!

  • Loftus

    Some one quick register a Fallout 4 Leek soup! we are going to be rich!


  • HairyEwok

    “Looks at Fallout 4 map, looks back at google maps Boston” hmmmmm intersting seems it really is post apocalyptic Boston. Though real Boston is WAY bigger than Fallout 4 Boston.

    • Robert Barton

      To be fair though an actual full sized replica of real life Boston in game would be way to costly

  • Captain JJ the Goo

    I remember when Tod said it was about the same as Skyrim. And that was good enough for me. 😀

  • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

    I feel sorry for Bethesda, they’ve managed to keep the game secret for so long, only to have the guiding wings of the nuclear missile that is launch day, bliksem off a week before… Such a sad situation…

    • Captain JJ the Goo

      Well, in a way it’s also a compliment for them that people are going this aapkak over a game.

      • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

        When you look at it that way, there is simply no way that this game will not sell well, I’m actually wondering what their pre order figures look like…

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          Just look at the smile on Todd’s face lately. There’s your pre-order figure. 😉

          • Hailey

            Yeah and that Todd is a sexy guy too. 😉

  • SmurFyZA

    Who actually leaks stuff like maps, screenies etc? Someone from the inside or do they get hacked or what? Also do you make spelling mistakes on purpose or is there no1 that actually reviews the articles before publishing?

    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

      Those would be the guys violating the NDAs, which are supplied with their review copies, unfortunately the level of control on such issues can only be implemented to a certain extent and by the time the leaks are published it is usually too late.

      I don’t blame Geoff for making spelling mistakes, he goes through quite a few articles a day…

  • lol eish. cannot believe this is out already.

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

      Is that what she said?

      • Captain JJ the Goo


  • Tom Wadey

    “No mountains in the way”. Now only half the fucking map is underwater.

    • JB

      You can swim underwater, theirs even a perk that eliminates you not only gaining radiation from water but also having to hold your breathe.

      • Tom Wadey

        True but I really can’t see there being anything of much interest underwater. I much prefer being able to walk places.
