Anchorage was a city in the state of Alaska prior to the Great War.


In the winter of 2066, Chinese forces invaded Anchorage, occupying the surrounding area and serving as a front line for the next decade.[1] On January 10, 2077, the United States won the Battle of Anchorage, pushing the Chinese forces back.[1] The 108th Infantry Battalion was stationed in Anchorage when several of its members, including Elliott Tercorien, were abducted by Zetan aliens.[2]


Anchorage appears as part of the simulation in the Fallout 3 add-on Operation: Anchorage, but the player character cannot go to Anchorage itself and the city is only seen from some cliffs. Anchorage is also mentioned in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and its add-on Mothership Zeta, Fallout 4[3] and its add-on Automatron,[4] Fallout 76,[5] and Fallout Shelter.[6]

Behind the scenes

Anchorage is based on the real-world location of Anchorage, Alaska, although the layout and appearance have little in common with the real city. For instance, the entire city shown in Fallout 3 seems to be built into a landlocked mountain range at high elevation, whereas the real city is largely at sea level on the coast of Cook Inlet, with small mountains easily visible but not contained within the town proper.

    Elliott Tercorien: "Me? Well, I was a medic with the 108th Infantry Battalion stationed at Anchorage, Alaska. I was with a squad of five other medics... our job was to patch everyone up after the Commies gunned them down. It was pretty bloody... nothing at all like I expected when I gave up my hospital job to enlist in the Army."
