After being cancelled
in the early parts of last year due to potential issues with re-using all the voice work from the original, the ambitious Fallout 3 fan remake called Capital Wasteland is back on track. The mod which aims to recreate the entirety of the game in Fallout 4, will now seek to re-record the approximately 45,000 voice lines from the original game.
An ambitious and immense task that served as one of the main reasons that project was cancelled or put on hold by the developers. In a new post by Capital Wasteland co-lead, HcGxGrill, details the reasoning for continuing the work.
Back in March of last year we communicated with Bethesda regarding our planned method to implement the voice acting and other audio from Fallout 3 into the Capital Wasteland. As you might already be aware, we were informed that our planned approach would raise some serious red flags and so after a few discussions amongst our team we decided it would be best to put the project on hold.
For myself after working for hundreds of hours on this project and then having to stop really made me depressed. Something I had an extreme passion for was suddenly not there anymore. So after taking a few months break, I slowly picked up the pieces and continued my work on the Capital Wasteland.
