New Fallout Announced

Fallout 3

I am sure you have already heard since the news is already old, but I wanted to give my thoughts on the release as well. For those of you who haven’t heard or are unaware Bethesda recently announced a new addition to the Fallout world. The new game will be available next year for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 and will be called Fallout: New Vegas. Not much else has been released about the game. We do know that it will be developed by Obsidian Entertainment and is not a sequel to Fallout 3 nor will it interfere with any future installments of the series. Obsidian Entertainment appears to be a good fit considering some of the current team worked on the original Fallout games. The team is known mainly for its work on Knights of the Old Republic II and Neverwinter Nights II.

To check out my opinion of the news release continue reading below.

Before this announcement I had a certain disdain towards Bethesda, not because I disliked Fallout 3 quite the contrary actually, but because I enjoyed the title so much and was unable to play any of the DLC. I was unable to play any of the DLC because I purchased the PS3 version of the game and for whatever reason was not released as of yet. However the current news leaves me happy and optimistic. I am happy to hear that we will be getting another Fallout game as early as next year that will be centered around another prominent city like Vegas. One of the major aspects of Fallout 3 that I enjoyed doing was traveling through iconic Washington D.C. and observing the ruble and destruction that lay ahead, Vegas is another one of those cities. I am optimistic that despite the flaws in Obsidian Entertainment’s previous games and despite the flaws in Fallout 3 that the final product will be as good or better than Fallout 3.

So for now I eagerly await more details to be released.
