Interview – Obsidian’s Chris Avellone on Fallout: New Vegas

VG247's Stephany Nunneley: When Fallout: New Vegas was announced at a London event back in April 2009, folks nearly broke the internet. Fairly popular, is Fallout.

All anyone knew back then was that it wasn’t a sequel to Fallout 3, it was a multi-platform title, and Obsidian was set to develop it.Earlier this year, Bethesda and Obsidian released a teaser video giving a glimpse at the game’s world without providing any concrete information.

Thankfully, last week, Bethesda decided to relent and held a pre-E3 event just outside Paris, showing-off the game to invited press outlets.

While there, VG247 was given the opportunity to speak with Chris Avellone, lead designer for Obsidian’s Alpha Protocol and senior designer on Fallout: New Vegas, where he explained to us what exactly makes New Vegas stand-out from its predecessor.

Since New Vegas is following so closely on the heels of Fallout 3, couldn’t it as easily have been used as DLC for the title?

What you find out, may surprise you.
