I love the fallout series. I love the works published by Bethesda Softworks. And here we have a fallout game published by Bethesda Softworks that I didn’t even notice (must had missed it when it was annouced). Said to be coming out this fall. Can’t work, I simply love the gameplay style and free roaming concept that Fallout 3 has. Fallout New Vegas is said to be following on the same tracks and that is just simply awesome.
Some information I managed to google out:
The game will take place in post-apocalyptic Las Vegas, which was previously only mentioned in the first Fallout (Tycho talked about it). The player will play as a courier, who was left to die in a shallow grave (Possibly from the trailer), rescued by a robot named Victor, and patched up by a Doctor Mitchell. The story will revolve around the player finding out who nearly killed him/her. The New California Republic will play a major part in the story, in a three way war between the NCR, the Caesar’s Legion, and the New Vegas populous. The story will not be related in any way to the one in Fallout 3.
