Fallout: New Vegas is a role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks. While New Vegas is not a direct sequel, it uses the same engine and the same style as Fallout 3. It was developed by a few of the employees who worked on previous Fallout games at Black Isle Studios, along with a larger number of new employees. It is set in, and around, post-apocalyptic Las Vegas (New Vegas).
Fallout: New Vegas has 4 different pre-order bonuses, the Classic Pack, Caravan Pack, Tribal Pack, and Mercenary Pack. As the game has already been released in North and South America, Europe, and Australia, they are no longer available. However, you can still pre-order in Asia. Each one has a unique suit of armor and a unique weapon not found in-game, along with a few other items that are available in-game. An official DLC has been announced for release in the holiday season of 2010, and will be timed exclusive to the Xbox 360
The game is set in a post-apocalyptic retro-futuristic Las Vegas, following the Great War between the U.S., China and other countries, as a conventional and nuclear war that occurred on October 22 - October 23, 2077, and lasted less than two hours, despite causing immense damage and destruction. Before the Great War was the Resource Wars, during which the United Nations disbanded, a plague rendered the United States paranoid, and Canada was annexed. The city of New Vegas itself wasn't hit as hard as most of the other districts, with most buildings being left intact as a result. The Hoover Dam supplies all the free electricity and water to those whom control it.
Fallout: New Vegas takes place in 2281, three years after the events of Fallout 3, and thirty-nine years after Fallout 2, making this installment set the furthest of the series. The New California Republic plays a major part in the game's story, being in a three-way struggle amongst the Caesar's Legion slavers, and the local New Vegas populace.
The Courier, the player's character, was meant to deliver a package to Primm. However, the Courier is then assaulted by the Great Khans and Benny, who stands in front of the Courier with the Khans cornering him (who is on the ground), holding the platinum chip in his hand. Benny says, "Look's like this is going to be your last delivery, kid." and then proceeds to shoot the Courier. The camera zooms out, and a Khan can be seen digging a grave for him. The Courier is later found by a robot named Victor, and is sent to the settlement of Goodsprings, where Doctor Mitchell saves his life. After the Courier is given some medical tests, The player has the option to recieve training from Sunny Smiles. The player is then pushed back into the open world, and the quest, Ain't That a Kick in the Head, begins. Fallout: New Vegas will have a definitive ending, just like Fallout 3. There are multiple endings. Which one of these endings you obtain depends on your levels of Karma and Reputation.
