Fallout series might be one of the best RPG series out there. Many Fallout fans know that Fallout franchise started in 1997 and it brought a brand new ideas to the gamers. Fallout was revolutionary because it didn’t followed classic medieval fantasy universe. Instead, Fallout was set in the post apocalyptic future. Following the nuclear war mankind is almost destroyed and the last survivors are fighting for the survival in the destroyed world. There’s no magic, demons and ancient gods, there is just people left in the cruel world of Fallout in great 50’s atmosphere.
Although two previous games had bird’s eye perspective that was quite common for the 90’s the Fallout 3 brought us the world of Fallout into 3D universe. As you all know Fallout 3 was developed and published by Bethesda Softworks, the same company that is responsible for one of the best RPG series today: The Elder Scrolls. After the great success of their RPG Oblivion Fallout 3 was quite a challenge for the Bethesda. Bethesda took its job seriously and made Fallout 3 as one of the best, if not the best RPG that year, and now we’re waiting for a sequel.
For Fallout: New Vegas Bethesda Softworks contacted the developer of older Fallout games, Obsidian Entertainment that is also a great developer of RPG games. Anyhow, story is already familiar and huge attention is devoted to the Hardcore Mode that will make New Vegas realistic. It should be a lot deeper than the previous Fallout game so we’re looking for the final results. As for the release date it will be October 19 in North America and on October 22 in Europe.
