Big in the sense that it would be a whole new gaming experience for the players as they re-calibrate "Fallout 5" to accommodate Virtual Reality features and 360-degree gaming. Budget-wise, "Fallout 5" will entail a big amount of money from Bethesda if it will really push through with VR-features.

Aside from New Orleans, an insider from Bethesda has reportedly leaked two possible location options for "Fallout 5" - sunny California or shiny New York. It would be very exciting to see how Bethesda would turn California or New York into a post-apocalyptic world.
