FALLOUT NEW VEGAS DETAILS - ***RUMORS***

   0


My coworker (Dapoisonedone) sent me this info today from a site he read. Here are the rumored details!


===========================================================================


Little is known about Fallout: New Vegas at this point, as information is scarce and both Obsidian and their publishers at Bethesda have been less than forthcoming about the Fallout spinoff. Because the game is being developed by Fallout 2’s original creators, it’d be more accurate to refer to Fallout 3 as the spinoff of the series, but I digress.


With a strong caveat, those hungry for information may be pleased to learn of some new information that’s recently surfaced on the GameSpot forums, divulged by a ‘trusted source’ at GameInformer concerning the magazine’s next cover – which is to supposedly feature Fallout: New Vegas.
- Similar to Dragon Age: Origins, at character creation the player can select from different background stories. The first few hours of the game are different depending on which background you choose, and you get some unique perks based on your background when the main game begins.

- One background story is shown, Chinese Agent. The background story takes place before the bombs fell. The player is part of a team of Crimson Dragoons infilitrating Hoover Dam. You manage to sneak through the Americans' defenses, set explosives, and head to an extraction point, but your escape is cut off by American soldiers in Power Armor. The player and other survivors of the Crimson Dragoons take refuge in a cave in the canyons, where they commit hari kari with cyanide capsules. The player about to do the same when the bombs fall. The background story ends an indeterminate time later, when the player exits the cave, removes his helmet, and sees his ghoulish reflection in the waters of the Colorado River.

- The background story segues into character creation. The player can customize the appearance of the ghoul, and you see you start the game with two unique perks. One, similar to the Ghoul Mask in Fallout 3, makes Feral Ghouls non-aggro. The other makes the player immune to radiation sickness and allows the player to discharge accumulated radiation in a blast similar to a Glowing Ghoul, healing the player and any mutants while damaging all non-mutants in range.

- By default, the Chinese Agent has the skills Sneak, Small Arms, and Explosives tagged and SPECIAL stats set, although the player can modify their tagged skills and stats if they don't like the template.

- One character background option is Lone Wanderer. This selection has no background story or template and is a complete blank slate for players.

- The SPECIAL system used will be similar to Fallout 3, but skills will be harder to cap and one character will not be able to become a master of all skills. The article is not very specific because apparently it's something the developers are still tweaking.

- Gambling will return, but not as a skill. Your Luck stat will effect gambling results. You can attempt to cheat at cards using your Sneak skill or hack slot machines using your Science skill.

- There will be vehicles. The desert of New Vegas dwarfs the Capital Wasteland and you will need transportation to get around and explore it. You will acquire a vehicle several hours into the main quest. You can customize your vehicle with parts bought at shops or won through racing circuits and quests. Vehicles will not be common, but you will encounter road gangs, merchant caravans, and other vehicles in the wastes. The open desert is home to some very large mutant creatures, like giant radscorpions and sandworms, that will attack your vehicle.

- New Vegas has a coliseum run by a slaver gang called the Caesar's Legion. You can gamble on and participate in arena fights.

The information does appear to be authentic, and nothing at all like the random ravings of a fanboy. Speaking to Ausir of The Vault, he said to me, “If it’s fake, I gotta congratulate the guy.” – Sentiments I can echo as a follower of the original series, as well as the unreleased sequel.

About TheJesusNinja26one of us since 12:33 AM on 09.11.2009


Gaming History:

I grew up on NES, SNES, and N64. Then took a break from gaming for a few years to party and be in a band in high school and college. Then once I was out of college I picked up a PS2 and started playing again. A few years later I picked up a XBOX 360, then a Wii, and finally a PS3 then an old modded XBOX that plays NES, SNES, Genesis & N64 games. I have since sold the Wii because I never played it. I don't play PC games. I buy all multi-platform games on the 360.


Let's get personal...
I was an atheist for the first 21 years of my life, then God showed me He was real in an extremely powerful way that I just couldn't deny no matter how much I wanted to ignore it. I then spent a few years doing youth ministry and traveling North America sharing the Gospel. After that I was a Spanish teacher in private and public schools. I then became a sales/product trainer for Best Buy. then a sales/product trainer for Toshiba's Laptop division. I know train for PayPal. I am single and have 3 fantastic sons, one of which has Autism which has it's challenges but he is such a great little dude. I am a musician; I have played drums for a little over 14 years. And dabble in a little classical guitar.



I am a very passionate person. I love my sports teams; RedSox, AZ Cardinals, and PHX SUNS. I enjoy a great beer preferably a Pale Ale or IPA. MOAR HOPS! I'm always down for an intelligent discussion; The more profound the better. In my opinion Gamers get a bad rep, because of a large percentage of gamers are immature tools, who lack couth. I'm in no way a violent, blood-lust filled person, like those you hear on Xbox Live or PSN spouting of racial slurs or obscenities. I just grew up on games and they've stuck with me.
