What would Las Vegas be without the strip? Even if it is a Strip that has survived a nuclear war and been rebuilt in the wasteland of the future. Fallout: New Vegas is less than a week away, and if you still need a reason to rush out and play the game, below is a developer diary highlighting one of the best attractions of the coming game- The Vegas Strip.
It isn’t the Strip you know, but it should ring familiar to you. With a heavy 1950s influence mixed with a survivalist feel, those that play the game will probably be spending a good deal of time there both for mission based objectives, and simply to explore everything developer Obsidian has packed in.
Fallout: New Vegas takes the world of Fallout 3, but adds a unique spin to it. While not technically a sequel, it will feature an original story set in the post-apocalyptic wasteland that resulted from a war between the U.S. and China. But unlike the burnt out husk of Washington D.C. that was prominent in Fallout 3, this incarnation of Vegas has survived and been rebuilt to at least a reflection of its previous glory. It is a dark and twisted reflection of the Vegas we know, which fits perfectly in the Fallout universe.
Fallout: New Vegas hits stores on October 19 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
