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.
