10 Things You Didn't Know About Fallout 4

These mysteries prevailed in the Commonwealth.


When Bethesda purchased the Fallout series in the mid-2000s, it embarked on the mammoth task of taking the classic post-apocalyptic franchise from a pc-only, isometric role-playing game, into a full-blown 3D action RPG.

The publisher's first effort, Fallout 3 came out in 2008 to a resoundingly positive reaction with fans and critics alike praising the way the game brought the series into the modern day while still capturing the essence of what makes the Fallout franchise so great.

After a 7 year gap, Bethesda brought the Fallout series into the current generation with Fallout 4, seeing the player take control of the Sole Survivor of Vault 111 over two hundred years after the Great War.

Fallout 4 proved to be an even greater success than its predecessor and despite some fans decrying the new speech system and voiced protagonist, remains one of the most popular titles in the Bethesda library.

However, despite superfan sleuths having combed through almost every aspect of the Commonwealth over the past five years, there remains a number of facts that even die-hard Fallout fans may not be aware of.

10. Codsworth Has A Potty Mouth


When the player first ventures outside of Vault 101 following the game's prelude, they will be met with a Sanctuary that has changed immeasurably as a result of the great war. Regardless of whether the player chooses to play as Nate or Nora, they will emerge from their cryogenic freeze to find out that their spouse has been killed, and their young child is missing.

So, when returning to the old homestead sans your family, it's always nice to have a reminder of the time before the apocalypse, and that comes in the form of Codsworth, a robotic butler, that has patiently awaited the player's return ever since the bombs fell.

To make the player's experience with Codsworth feel that little bit more immersive, Codsworth will even say the player's name, provided it is in the extensive list of names recorded by Bethseda.

And while all common names are included, Codsworth also has spoken dialogue if the player has decided to call themselves Assface, Bacon, Boobies, Grognak, Humungous, !*$%, and more. They thought of everything.
