Bethesda Announce Fallout: New Vegas

Published On April 20, 2009 | By Sam Finch | News

With Fallout 3 and all attached DLC out of nappies and booted out of Bethesda’s Vault 101, the company, synonymous with excellent first-person RPGs in recent years, has announced today at a press event the next game in the Fallout saga.

Fallout: New Vegas, looking to the West Coast

While this next installment will be set in the same universe as the post-apocalyptic Fallout 3, it won’t be a direct sequel, with its setting being shifted to that of the first games, the West Coast of America. Being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the developers of the original PC titles, an early estimate for release was stated as 2010. Confirmations from Bethesda VP, Pete Hines confirm that New Vegas will be an RPG, likely to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor and its Grandad, Oblivion.

More details are sure to come at E3.
