A Hint of Things to Come

The perk magazines in "Fallout 4" feature some covers of interest to Lovecraft fans.  I suspect that the "Astoundingly Awesome" pulps foreshadow the DLC content that will be released next year.  Based on these two I think it's safe to say at least one will feature an underwater adventure touching on the Mythos.   A few others hint at a potential trip to the moon.

You can find a full gallery of all the magazines over here.  The resolution is a bit low for prop versions, but weathering can cover up a multitude of sins.

If you're really into potential Fallout/Mythos crossovers, this thread over at Reddit has me geeking out on the lore of the "Cabot House" quest in FO4.  Beware, it's filled with some very big spoilers.

Too bad their typography isn't as good as their paintings.

Additionally, someone found an unused weapon hidden in the game: a harpoon gun. This lends credence to your underwater adventure theory.

There's reportedly an underwater "city" and an industrial complex that you can see beyond the edges of the ocean map to the east of Boston. It's hard to tell what's actually there because of the underwater fogging effect. Once people can can access the cell art assets the mystery should be resolved, but I don't think that can happen until the Creation Kit is released.
