Fallout New Vegas Announced

Not much detail, but apparently Bethesda just announced the title with Obsidian developing.

Quote:
Fallout New Vegas was announced moments ago during a Bethesda press conference in London.

The new game was revealed by Bethesda's Pete Hines who said that the publisher is working with Obsidian Entertainment on the title.

It will be coming out next year for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

"It is not a sequel to Fallout 3," Hines said. "It's simply another Fallout game in that universe."
Not any more info from other sites either, but plenty reporting it.

Although it's great news, I hope this doesn't mean they're not working on a new Elder Scrolls game...

Since Obsidian is actually developing it, then I doubt it will have any effect on whether or not they are working on a new Elder Scrolls.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

wtf?? that came out from nowhere!

Is that supposed a game like Fallout 3?
Or is something totally different that uses the name Fallout?

The good news is that Obsidian Entertainment has a lot of experience developing RPGs.

Maybe they'll even include the option for PS3 owners to get the downloadable content this time.

One of the comments I read brought up the comparison to GTA and how there's Vice City and San Andreas that aren't really sequels. This could be something similar... not really a continuation of the main Fallout story, but just a different situation going on in a different location.

I see. That could be interesting if they can make it work. I mean we are talking about a game that's going to be as big as Fallout 3, and not like a DLC.

I never played Fallout 1 and 2 but is this any different from the 3rd one? Meaning is there a timeline difference between the first sequels and the 3rd one? I thought it was just a different place.

The first two Fallout games take place on the west coast while Fallout 3 takes place on the east coast.

There is a timeline difference as well. Fallout 2 takes place about 60 years after Fallout 1. Fallout 3 takes place about 30 years after Fallout 2. So all in all the trilogy spans roughly 100 years.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I'm excited for more Fallout, but I get nervous anytime I see KOTOR II associated with a game I enjoyed.

To be fair, KOTOR2 being an unfinished mess is the fault of Lucasarts, not Obsidian. Lucasarts wanted the game out in time for the Christmas shopping season whether the game was finished or not.

So I guess this means I better finish Fallout 3... I kinda got burnt out on the gaming thing so I haven't touch my PS3 for games in a few months!

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I'm getting a Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel vibe from this announcement, which isn't a good thing.

More Fallout? Day one purchase for me. Fallout 3 is one of my favorite games of all time.

I don't see why you would be getting that vibe

It's not like they're making a different game, and it's being made by guys who were responsible for the original Fallout games and the old Black Isle Studios.

I love Vegas, and I'll buy this game. I hope they get some of the real resorts in there.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Fallout 3 was supposed to be set in the west originally before Bethesda took over, it seems like this game will be what it was supposed to be before.

Well, they had New Reno, so why not New Vegas? I am always up for more Fallout gaming.

I know, I just suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder when it comes to KOTOR II. Just thinking about it curls me up into a fetal position...

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

This is great news. Just think of the possibilities.

Maybe you come from a group that lived in a Money Vault and not an actual Vault-Tec vault, or you could come across a group that lived in a money Vault?

The chance to battle in old casinos or maybe some casinos that groups have tried to fix up?

Bunny Ranch???? How about a Ghoul Bunny Ranch?

Instead of a cult of wannabe vampires, a cult of wannabe Elvis impersonators?

A gambling aspect similar to Fable 2, but hopefully better?

You can get married in Fallout Vegas?

Cabaret shows?

I am so looking forward to this!!!!
