Where is the plot of the game set?
The plot of the game is set in the future somewhere around the year 2241. The game is set in the ancient city of Arroyo. The town suffers a severe drought as a consequence of the nuclear war which took place several years ago. The villagers of the town are at the mercy of the ‘Chosen One.’ The ‘Chosen One’ or the descendant of the dweller of the vault is the protector of the people of the town. To save the people of the town from the severe drought, the player (who plays the character of the ‘Chosen one” ) sets himself on a mission to find the GECK. The GECK is equipment or device, which has the power to transform wastelands into thriving and flourishing communities. The player is provided with the outfit of the dweller of the vault, spear, flask of water, and some money to get set on his mission.
The player discovers vault 13, where the GECK is supposed to be located. Smart Deathclaws inhabit the vault 13. The Deathclaws are huge creatures who are evil and dangerous. The player returns to find the village, which is captured by the US government’s remnants, known as Enclave. The Enclave terrorizes the natives of the US continent using their mighty arsenal, which possess highly developed technology. The player activates the primitive oil tanker via several means. The player succeeds in engaging the autopilot of the tanker and reaches the major base of the Enclave, which is situated on the seashore.
On reaching the base of Enclave, the player learns that the inhabitants of Vault 13 were imprisoned and were about to be used in the form of subjects of experiments. They were about to experiment for a kind of virus known as FEV. The Enclave changed the FEV into a contagious disease, which can communicate by air. The FEV was modified to attack the DNA of the living organisms.
The player sets the imprisoners free before the Enclave can harm them. Also, he finds the GECK and restores the glory of the land.
