There's a little thing called Fallout 4 doing the rounds now. You may have heard of it. Being the ball-busting blockbuster it is, there's a good chance you're cruising through the wasteland with some ridiculous weapon or other at this very moment.

Now, as I'm sure you know, the latest in Bethesda's action RPG series is a big deal, and an even goddamn bigger game. We've got ourselves a huge sandbox world to freely roam about, and you know what that means: hidden secrets-amundo. Collectibles, easter eggs, sidequests and all that sort of business.

The game's still young, natch, but this early find's going to be hard to top. With the game set in a post-apocalyptic Boston and all, the developers threw in a little homage to a classic Bostonian sitcom. Yes indeed, Cheers bar is hidden in Fallout 4.

Kotaku's own Kirk Hamilton discovered a mysterious door labelled ‘Prost Bar' while exploring the game's world. Inside was a far-too-darn accurate recreation of Cheers, complete with back office and the skeletons of some of the show's cast:
