Long-time Fallout community site Duck and Cover has obtained leaked images of the map of the Mojave Wasteland from Fallout: New Vegas. The images give a very good idea of what players are up against when Fallout: New Vega is released next week.
but looks like a strategy guide map
Been lookin' forward to this for a while now :)
is it me or it looks smaller that fallout3 map ?
how can you know if is smaller or not, without any scale?
@ above easy fallout 3 map = 1 big block full of location and space Fallout: New Vegas map = something that looks like an island with everything stuffed in to it it looks crowded and yah i know Vegas is not an island that map just looks like one
http://blog.us.playstation.... How big is Fallout: New Vegas compared to Fallout 3? It’s about the same size. If you thought Fallout 3 was big, you’ll find Fallout: New Vegas to be equally big.
I'am kinda sad it dosen't have much wasteland this time it was fun going out and fighting until i died.
Bethesda said on the last podcast that New Vegas map is bigger than Fallout 3. They talked about the difference in designs and everything. Should check it out if you guys are interested in it. Talk about things like difference in desert design compared to DC and all that. Also said it's completely different than the Capital Wasteland where in New Vegas there are a lot more open areas than closed
This game is gonna sell a lot!
should be fun. I want to try out the boxing gloves :) and rob everybody i can without getting caught
about the more open ares. I hated in Fallout 3 the blockades that were up everywhere and had to use tunnels etc. Still loved fallout 3
WOW There certainly seems to be a lot of locations to visit,gonna be sweet. Also glad there is so many factions this time around so I don't keep running into the same enemies over and over again like Fallout 3
I spent countless hours on Fall Out 3 and here is hoping for the same with Vegas. The bad news is that I have ACL surgery on monday and the good news is that I will be off from work for 2 weeks.
You're only off work for 2 weeks after ACL surgery?
That's crazy.. Good luck with the surgery and recovery.
Thank you modded xbox now I get to play this in about 5 mins!
I've got spurs that jingle,jangle,jingle Just one more week :)
I wonder if this game will have a ingame music radio station so you can listen to your own tunes. I would load it up with tons of ratpack songs.
I can't get enough of that song. Thanks to Fallout 3 I've spent far too long walking around listening to the Andrews sisters and the Ink spots on my mp3 player, makes me nostalgic for the post apocalyptic future.
(remember the trailer... the eyebot got shot while going down the highway listen/playing that song). LOL edit: forgot to refresh my screen and didn't realize Kakihara got a post in.... oh well.
Bubbles for trying =)
Bongo, bongo, bongo, I don't want to leave the congo, oh no no no no NOOOO!
BIngo, bango, bongo i'm so happy in the jungle i refuse to gooooo
I'll stay right Hereeeee
ive been singing that song in my head since this game. lol what a catchy cheezy song.
Oh man - that looks awesome - plenty of locations on there.. Can't wait until next week!!!
i didn't zoom into the map or anything but if you DID, didn't you just pretty much ruin the game somewhat? i mean, all the locations are on there and it's fun to just explore in fallout now~
Not at all, I took a quick glance.. trust me by next week I'd have totally forgotten about it.. heck, I doubt by Saturday I could tell what shape the map was. Either way, that game is mine next week!
haha, fair enough~ i just remember seeing the map for fo3 on the the wiki and ruined a few places that i didn't wanna discover that way.
yeah it's only 15cm wide, ridiculous! /s
Small imagination....You has one...
I wanted to get back to fallout 3 before new vegas, the free DLC from my PS+ subscription was the perfect opportunity, but when I popped in the disc I realized that my transferred save from my ps3 fat to my ps3 slim did not work... Does anyone know how much it is recommended to play (what level?) before accessing the DLC? or should I just dig back out my fat PS3?
I did a few basic quests and got to around level 8 before I did the DLC, but it's up too you. I recommend you do Operation Anchorage first, because it's the least fun and you get some sweet loot, it's good to get it out of the way. Good Luck.
thanks, bubbles for you!
Wow, someone who actually has PS+!!
Hope this is good, wish Bethesda made it though.
New Vegas is being Developed by some talented guys, of which Developed some of the Greatest installments of the Franchise, if not THE best...
Wish Bethesda made it?? So it will be extremely buggy like all there other games?? No thanks! Glad they ain't making it.
Fallout 3 was one of the greatest examples of RPG this Generation, with some of the new additions being implemented with Fallout New Vegas, this game can't fail. Feel free to criticise the graphics, but the world and gameplay will be as immersive as ever, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters to me...
Great comment. I share your opinion. Fallout 3 was the best RPG i've played in a long time. I had something like 240 hours invested into the game by the time i finished the DLC. Talk about a game being worth the money.
looks small to me. I'll let my friends but it before i do haha
I just came a little.
Gross. But what the hell....bubbles
wasn't gonna get this game at launch but getting more and more excited for it
*studies this map*
Is it a problem if I just jizzed a little?
I don't care about the map size it will just mean travelling to places you haven't discovered yet won't take hours of your life like in Fallout 3. Also what pissed me off about Fallout 3 was you spent so much time exploring and when you found secret places there wasn't anything special there, made the exploring feel like a waste of time. I think NV will have much better things to be found atleast I hope so.
I KNOW IN FALLOUT 3 AFTER YOU GOT THE DLC YOU COULD FREE ROAM ........BUT DOES THE GAME END COMPLETELY
Yes, once you reach the ending you can't free roam and just muck around the wasteland. One of the developers did comment that there will be a notice in-game that you're nearing the ending so you can go do whatever before you tackle the final mission.
Reserved the game and bought the stratergy guide. I am ready to go!
Is it only me who thinks that this looks a tad similar to Fallout 3? Don't get me wrong, I loved Fallout as much as the next guy but judging from what I've seen, it seems that Obsidian played it too safe. Seriously, the most noticeable change for me is that the HUD is now orange instead of green. Wished they would of at least tried something radical or utilized a different graphics engine. Not good. I'll still pick it up, although I'll probably wait for a GOTY edition to be released first. End rant. :)
What do you mean a tad, it IS similar. Fallout : Vegas isn't Fallout 4 you know, it's basically Fallout 3, in Vegas. Thats it. This is about capitalizing on the Fallout 3 phenomenon by delivering more content to the same universe while the franchise is still hot. There isn't time to do anything else like developing with a new graphics engine retooling the animations.
^What he said^
I am going to play Fallout 3 GOTY edition now and then I'm going to play New Vegas. Overdose on the awesome.
Is not that good. Look at there past work. Pretty much all of there games turned out like crap ----with MAJOR GLITCHES. Do your research on this developer- they are not that great at all. They were given the task to complete other games like KOTOR ORIGINALLY FROM BIOWARE----WHAT HAPPENED THERE?? Well it turned out crappy full of glitches not to mention the story line so on and so fourth. Look I really hope they did a great job with this game like Bethesda did but something tells me based on past jobs Obsidian completed --its going to be not that great at all. :(
1. KOTOR 2 was rushed in it's development because LucasArts pressured them to meet the release date, so not really their fault. 2. Alpha Protocol was delayed due to the merger between Sierra Entertainment and Activision, which at that time Activision had put all projects previously under Sierra Entertainment's control on hiatus and even canceled a few titles.This greatly affected it's overall performance. Most of the developers who had worked on the project, those who were laid off because of the merger and those still employed, before it even released were openly stating they didn't like the finished project and wished they would have had more time and resources to correct what was wrong. Bethesda did not pressure Obsidian to rush development of Fallout New Vegas, they actually helped Obsidian through it's development. Also let me add that most of the developers within Obsidian were apart of Black Isle Studios, the original studio that created the Fallout franchise. And the original minds behind Fallout 1 and 2 in fact were the lead developers behind Fallout New Vegas. Don't sell Obsidian short. They are great developers.
I don't want to know. Fallout is much better if you go into it without any spoilers.
We will soon find out although. I will be checking reviews on this one and every game Obsidian develops ---b/c of past games they developed. Up to this point the interviews and trailers look amazing but then when they release the game --- gamers and critics soon find out poor development of game due to major glitches and many other things. I just don't rank this company high on my list of professional game developers.
I think theyll do alright. The way I think of fallout its like a map editor of elder scrolls IV with different skins an it has guns. their so similar in build its crazy. I read an article stating that this game pretty much will be following suit. Now I dont know much about dev (clearly) so if this apparent copy/past/add skin is some sort of industry standard that devs manage eff up regardless then by all means educate me however I still hypothesise that this pretty much demotes obsidian to map editors leaving the majority of gameplay the same as the original with a few tweaks. but then again maybe those tweaks break it. Il be checking the reviews also.
Pre ordered my collectors edition today :D
He's hackin and whackin' and smackin'
I hope their are bobbleheads to collect. Can't wait!
