Welcome to the Fallout Wiki
|Fallout Wiki: Fallout 3 portal|
The game takes place in the year 2277 on the East Coast of what used to be the United States of America, mostly in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The gameplay features include real-time combat and first or third person perspective, in contrast to the previous games, which were turn-based and isometric.
Jefferson Memorial is a presidential memorial in Washington, D.C. that is dedicated to Thomas Jefferson, an American Founding Father and the third president of the United States. After the Great War, the Memorial was turned into something that resembles a water filtering facility with low-tech construction all around it and many pipes going in and out. It is not known if the original statue of Jefferson stands or not.

|The Fallout world is not quite our own. It is an alternate reality which diverged from ours at some point after the second World War.
The base concept for the setting is the World of Tomorrow as imagined in the Golden Age of Science Fiction. This means that before the Great War, the Fallout world was more or less what the people of the 1940s and 1950s thought things would be like in 2077.
