The new Fallout will take place in Vegas, makes sense considering that was the '50s were the golden era for that place. The expansion will come out next year.

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."

        Yea, Fallout 3 was out for the PS3. Although, it did have its fair share of bugs from what I heard, should be patched up by now though.

          Are you talking about bugs on Fallout 3 I didn't notice many of them... though I did get it straight after a major patch... this is definitely a game that goes on my 'buy at release list'

          I think they had the major bugs patched within a week or so. I agree, FO3 was a "buy at release" for myself too, that and "buy collectors edition".

        I think Metallica was confused because the writer referred to the game as an expansion, and so far all expansions haven't been for PS3.

    Obsidian? They've found a nice little niche following up with sequels to awesome games.

    KOTOR 2 was surprisingly good.

      KOTOR 2 still did not live up to how good the original one, by Bioware, was, by a long shot. The game had a lot of errors, issues and in the end didn't provide the same in game feel as the initial game did.

      Still, awesome to hear a new Fallout title coming out.

        I would agree with that. KOTOR 2 is possibly the most incomplete game I've played, they didn't even change the Menu's for a lot of the missing features.

          ....wait what?

          Anyway, as far as story goes the game wasn't as good, and it had some bugs that should have been worked out. Also it tended to lag a bit at times.

          However, I liked a lot of the things they did. Your influence over your party for example, and the use of skills in dialogue.

          IMO in many ways I though KOTOR 2 was better, save for what I mentioned. Of course Bioware is a much better developer, but Obsidian's effort was good.

          Dunno Seproth, if Obsidian does the same thing as they did in KotOR then I'd be unhappy. While there were changes, such as component breakdown, influence, more classes and such, a lot of it was not up to snuff and not tested throughly. If they take their time with this one and don't sprint through production like a bat fleeing hellfires then I'll be optimistic.

          Fair enough, I agree with you it was a bit buggy. However, it was awhile ago. So they're probably better for it.

          Additionally they're working in conjunction with Bethesda so it shouldn't be a problem.

          Hopefully we get the best of both worlds. A fresh new look where they have a lot to add, and it still gets the polish it deserves.

      Do you mean *this* Fallout in particular or the entire Fallout franchise? This isn't an expansion (DLC) it's a brand new game in the franchise. And hey, some of us liked FO3 but, it wasn't as good as the original Fallout.

        oooh, sorry, i thought this was another expansion to fallout 3!

        now i'm just indifferent. i liked fallout 3 pretty well until my computer decided to stop running it (but thats my problem, and i dont dislike the game for it). i dont think i liked it enough to get excited about a sequel. :\

    BLOODY AWESOME! Excellent, I loved Fallout 3. I wonder if this will be named Fallout 4 or some ghey name like Fallout: Vegas.

    ^I saw a videos f the first fallout, and tbh, I wasn't impressed. It was all too 2D. The transition from F2 to F3 is like the one from GTA2 to GTA3.

      Yeh man apparently it's called Fallout: New Vegas. From the sounds of it they're going for a franchise similar to the GTA one.

      Would have to disagree with you there. I can see why you'd think that but..GTA2 was top-down, Fallout 2 is isometric. GTA3 is third person, Fallout 3 is first person..worlds of differences.
      Anyway, personally, I have no real interest in the early GTA games..3D is where it thrived..but I can't recommend the early Fallouts enough, isometric or not. The high resolution patch brings it up to speed well enough.

        I agree. In my post I was just comapring the evolution of the 2 franchises.

          GTA2 to GTA3 = Evolution.

          Fallout 2 to Fallout 3 = Complete overhall.

          @OV: Ever heard of opinions?

          EDIT: BTW, by "same thing", I didn't mean that the terms evolution and overhaul are the same, just that, I consider the 2 series comparable.

          Onvacation Apr 24, 09
          Who said anything about opinions?
          You replied to a comment saying That the progression of 2 series are totally different, saying 'same thing '.

          It would look to anyone that you just said Evolution and complete overhaul are the same thing, But oh, as long as you get the whole Cocky attitude going on who cares if you make sense.

          oh wait forgot something... ...

          Not really the same thing though (replying directly to your comment after mine, not that little 'argument' or w/e, fyi).

          I mean with GTA the core gameplay was still exactly the same; steal cars, drives cars, total cars, find guns, shoot guns, kill people, etc. It just went from crappy PS1 top down to 3D, evolving.

          Whereas Fallout 2, a true RPG in pretty much all senses of the words, moved to Fallout 3 and was turned into an action-RPG, the core gameplay mechanics being completely different. Okay, maybe it wasn't a complete overhaul since they still had a number of RPG aspects in the game, but it was still an overhaul, a pretty obvious one if you'd played any of the old games.

          The metaphoric Pikachu of GTA turned into a Raichu, whereas the metaphoric Charmander of Fallout somehow turned into a Blastoise.

    Obsidian Entertainment, who are technically part of Black Isle Studios, who made the original Fallout and Fallout 2, are now, after Bethesda, making a Fallout based on Bethesda's universe and not their own?

    Kinda weird that they'd not show interest in a series they kinda created and would wait until someone else made it cool again... and then do it their way.

    But Kotor II was cool. Not half as good as the original, but it had some sweet characters and plots, so these guys have talent.

      They're not part of Black Isle Studios, Black Isle is dead. Some of the people that worked there now work at Obsidian.

      Yeah, that is interesting..

    That's a little quick compared to the space between previous games.

    If its anywhere near F3 it will be worthy of purchase.
