Fallout: New Vegas Will be a Long Journey

February 16, 2010Written by Kyle P.

Even though the game was released well over a year ago, gamers are still enjoying Fallout 3 and the DLC that Bethesda has created for the game. However, Bethesda is already hard at work, developing a successor: Fallout : New Vegas. New Vegas will have the familiar feel of a Fallout game, but it will be an “entirely new game and a new look”. In a recent interview with USA Today, Bethesda’s Pete Hines gave a bit of a backdrop to New Vegas, and every bit got us here at PSLS even more excited.

In the interview, Hines revealed that the game will take “hundreds of hours to explore every nook and cranny.” This certainly has some backing, seeing how Bethesda has a track record of creating entire game universes that could be played for a long time.

“Unlike the previous Fallouts, where you start in a vault and you are a vault dweller, this one starts with a curve ball. You were a courier, and you were obviously carrying something that somebody wanted. Part of the story is finding out what you had and what they took. [The game] has a brand new, fresh experience that has a familiar feel of Fallout, but otherwise it’s an entirely new game and a new look, with Joshua trees and tumbleweeds and blue skies.

“Vegas is up and running. It is not a ghost town. It still exists and thrives. There are casinos, and you can go down onto the Strip. It will have a very different feel from that standpoint.

“It is a massive game world that will take you hundreds of hours to explore every nook and cranny.”

More information regarding Fallout : New Vegas will be in the April issue of PC Gamer, which will hit store shelves March 2nd.
