About how long ago did the United States fall to the infection in the new lore? I can't seem to find the answer in the lore page, but if I looked over it I appologize.

If you look closely, it states approximately five years after the outbreak.

No worries mate, for specifics the best thing to do would be contact a Loremaster directly. As for information currently available on the website those are the most relevant documents I know of.

To elaborate on what Niveous said most countries fell within the first five years. There are active settlements in the US however, and when creating your character for Nyheim you will be able to choose one of these settlements as your origins in a dropdown list. Nationality is no longer a thing and has been replaced by that list.

Can I create my own settlement for my character? For his origins?

You can make up a lot of things as we're leaving things open for the players to explore and experiment with.

It has to be realistic if it is a real one. But technically you could claim to be the son of and ex-President in the US. Whether that is right or wrong is another thing.

Edit: You'd have to choose the "Other" option in the origins list though.

Any chance we will get the ability to create our character on here before the server launch?

Sorry if this was already answered but I've been looking around and couldn't find anything.

Here is the lore:

You can start writing up a simple backstory then copy paste it the day the map launches (which is next friday).

During the live stream it was stated that prior to release of the new map, there will be an archival of existing characters. To prevent Nyheim characters from being swept up in this, creation of them will be closed until release. In the meantime, you can get your character ready to go by working on them in a google doc, that way its ready to post when creation for them opens up. Hope this helps!

Thanks, one last thing. Is the list of settlements we can choose from publicly available as of now?

Just so we can start to develop our characters with that part in mind.

No, it has not at this time been made available. That being said, you're also permitted to take creative liberties, as @Hofermentioned above. You're always welcome to speak with a loremaster regarding ideas you have, if you'd like to get them green-lit.

Will there be lore provided for each available settlement on the list or is it just pick one and decide for yourself how your character left it?

I would definitely like the list so that way I can change the backstory of the character I'm working on to revolve around a certain settlement

No lore, just a general location and name. The rest is up to the player.

I ain't sure if you are joking with that question, but let me copy what the Lore FAQ says:
 

  • Can I still be a soldier?
    • No. As countries and most of the old world is no longer existing, there will not be any official armies going around the world fighting each other. Most characters playing on this new map will be a wastelander. One of many, from all sorts of tribes and communities throughout the world.

Only if he is an active member of the remaining secret service corp that survived by hiding in the presidential bunker and then flew to Chernarus in order to scavenge for supplies to bring back.

Closing this since the OP has received an answer. Discussion about USA characters can continue somewhere else.
