"Fallout 4" is considered to be one of the best video games currently in the market right now, thanks to its immersive gameplay and outstanding strategic combat experience. No wonder fans have been clamoring for a "Fallout 5" as soon as it was announced that "Nuka World" was going to be the last DLC for its fourth installment.

After a year since Bethesda's game launched, what could fans expect from its upcoming fifth installment in the franchise? Here's everything you need to know about "Fallout 5" release dates, news, updates, upgrades and features and more.

New Orleans location

Set in a post-apocalyptic world in the United States, the game has been set in Boston and Washington D.C. so far. However, several reports speculated that "Fallout 5" will be happening in New Orleans, especially since Bethesda Softworks appeared to have trademarked "Fallout 5: New Orleans."

Craftable Ammo

Meanwhile, a report from GameRant outlined several features in "Fallout 4" that several fans wanted to appear on "Fallout 5." One of them is craftable ammo, which would allow players to customize ammo or be able to build ammo out of materials lying around. After all, "Fallout 5" is set in a post-apocalyptic world, which means there is no shortage of materials for weapons.

Hardcore mode for 'Fallout 5'

Fans are also requesting that Bethesda include a "Hardcore mode" for "Fallout 5." That way, the game would have more depth and intensity and would really bring out the challenge in the game. This would also make sure that settlements are all the more important in the game.
