Bethesda Softworks has announced that their new Fallout game is set for release this Fall. Announced last year, Fallout: New Vegas is not Fallout 4, but is more of a spin-off and direct sequel to 1998’s Fallout 2. Bethesda also released a teaser trailer for the game to coincide with their announcement.
New Vegas is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, best known for developing the NeverWinter Nights series and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2. Obsidian was formed shortly after Interplay’s Black Isle Studios (the developers of Fallout and Fallout 2) shut down. Many of the key players from Black Isle ended up at Obsidian, so hopefully Fallout: New Vegas can recapture some of the heavily-irradiated magic that made the first two games in the franchise so great.
