Here it is, the big one!

This one gives a lot of plot information that we haven't gotten before. It looks like everyone's speculations have been proven right, and a large portion of the main plot will revolve around The Institute (MIT, most likely) and their synthetic people.

Fallout 3 had a questline that introduced us to the Institute and we met a synth, and depending on our characters we helped or harmed their mission. A year or two later, people spotted some Bethesda employees taking pictures around Boston and assumed that Fallout 4 would heavily involve The Institute, and boy were they right!

It's a common sci-fi trope to have a new class of people who are mistrusted and misunderstood be a metaphor for racism, homophobia, or other prejudices, but it's common because it's powerful.

I can't wait to get my hands on this!

Ok, think it's time to bust out Fallout 3 again, I haven't played it too much (it's on my PS3 so I don't play on the TV as much as I play PC). I'm watching walking dead finally, too, so I'm so in the mood for end-world apocalyptic settings.
