Anyone who has maxed out their character(s) in Fallout 3 and explored every inch of the main game as well as its subsequent episodes can finally emerge victorious from the Capitol Wasteland and set their sights on a new frontier; the West Coast (oft mention in Fallout 3's story), or as its known to everyone else, New Vegas
Bethesda have today finally released a teaser trailer for Fallout: New Vegas
, which is very much in line with the teaser we got for Fallout 3 but hey, consistency is a good thing in this case, and it looks very tantalising. We've also been given a release window of this year in the "Fall" (our Spring) and in case you missed it, this one is being handled by Obsidian (though still published by Bethesda). Stay tuned for more as it becomes available.

Huh? Is it the west coast or nevada? Vegas is something like 500 miles inland?
I wouldn't say west coast is a new frontier, it was where fallout 1 and 2 storylines were located. Fallout 1 had places like the LA boneyard, and Fallout 2 had San Fran + New California Republic.
Not having a go, just curious whether by new vegas they refer to nevada, or whether its another city been renamed.

Consider me pumped. Fallout 3 was my drug of choice to drag me out of WoW, so more of the same can't be a bad thing.. can it? Also (as I mentioned in my thread) keen to find out who the mysterious figure is at the end - The Gasmask & cowboy attire hints towards it being Tycho from the orignial Fallout, but you never know..

kinda sick of all the oblivious vault dwellers

simul, yeah I'm just referring to California and as a new frontier because it *looks* like this new chapter might end up carrying across a lot of Fallout 3 which, for all intents and purposes, is a kind of 'rebeginning' for the series for newcomers (not forgetting the original games, but they don't really have a lot to do with F3 beyond the foundation and cosmetic). Which, if all is true, should mean you can bring your character across from F3 to NV - at least, here's hoping...

Also the game should of played more like biowares modern rpg... this bethesda first person open world stuff kind of s**** me... it was novel with oblivion... and i guess it was novel in fallout 3... but the whole.. do what you want when you want generally kills itself in the ass.. you do something before something else.. and the dialogue and story don't match up (well enough) and it just ruins the fun... Like i think the concepts a great idea.. but untill its implemented well.. it just s**** me.
In saying all of that.. i look forward to shooting s*** up in new vegas.

I did, and it was worth it, and I've taken to exploring every single nook and cranny of the Wasteland and each of the other maps provided in the DLC. Fallout 3 was so worth the money, making me very psyched up for this new one.

Closer to the original games than the Bethesda iterations tho. I know we have some older gamers on here :)

I *think* I backed up my finished character before formatting a while back.
Oh well if I didn't, I'd do it all again.
