Duck and Cover has gotten their hands on a bunch of new screenshots from Bethesda Softworks and Obsidian Entertainment’s upcoming Fallout: New Vegas. The first teaser trailer for the game was released last month, but these images are the first look at actual gameplay.
The game will be the fourth installment in the fantastic franchise that last delivered one of the greatest games ever made in Fallout 3, which was released in the Fall of 2008. This new adventure returns us to post-apocalyptic Las Vegas, and to a familiar area for fans of the first two games, which were set out west.
Throw on your vault jumpsuit, grab an ice cold Nuka Cola, and head on over to check out the new screenshots!
Obsidian was founded by many members of Black Isle Studios, who created Fallout and Fallout 2 for Interplay. Back then, Interplay Entertainment owned the property and when some complications arose in the relationship, they were forced to lay everyone at Black Isle off. Eventually, Bethesda acquired all of the rights to the Fallout franchise, and contracted Obsidian to develop this new title. Bethesda developed the best-in-series third game themselves, but will just be publishing Fallout: New Vegas this time around.
Considering how fast this game has come around (it will release this upcoming Fall), I had worries that it would not meet the standards set by Fallout 3, or even worse, that it wouldn’t be the same First Person Shooter-style that worked so well. I keep forgetting it’s already been two years since the last game came out, having only played it for the first time recently.
As you can clearly see here, there was no cause for alarm. Fallout: New Vegas looks to be a well-made and faithful follow-up to the Game of the Year-crowned third game.
Now, someone really needs to explain to me what in the hell is going on with Super Mutant Barbie down there.
