In the parallel universe of Fallout 4, Boston’s Scollay Square still exists. Well, if you call this existence.

For fans of the Fallout video game series, today is a happy day. The trailer for Fallout 4, a post-apocalyptic role-playing game, went live on YouTube just a bit ago, and the reaction is fierce and positive. Fallout 4 is the first true Fallout game since 2008’s Fallout 3 (the 2010 release Fallout: New Vegas was set in the Fallout world but not part of the game’s main story). The Fallout series started in 1997 as a PC/Mac game; Fallout 4 will be available for XBox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

For some time, Fallout watchers have believed that Fallout 4 would be set in Boston, based on information supposedly leaked by developer Bethesda Game Studios. Posters at Reddit’s Fallout 4 forum have collected the following clues from the trailer above that confirm Beantown as the setting:

Bunker Hill Monument : 1:36
USS Constitution : 1:39
Scollay Square, Where Government Center is now : 1:40
Fenway Park – Ted Williams Statue : 1:50
Inside Fenway, See the Coke sign and lights: 1:54
