Fallout 3 Was Going to Launch the Same Day the Bombs Dropped


Relax, the Nuclear Apocalypse didn’t kick off while you where rewatching the Fallout 4 trailer, but did you know that Bethesda originally wanted to release Fallout 3 on October 23rd?

In Fallout lore, that’s the date the bombs fell and Bethesda wanted this to fittingly be Fallout 3’s release date.
