We have some Fallout 4 news, though it may not exactly be what you were thinking. Christopher Means, is a fan of Fallout. He is a man who loves all of the games, though has a particular affinity for Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. He began to work on a mod for the latter, one which created a town he was familiar with within the game. Being a native Texan, he decided that he was going to have this be the setting for new location, specifically the region of El Paso which falls under the Texan commonwealth.
The game is a complete conversion mod, which takes place 50 years before the events of Fallout: New Vegas. So what exactly lies in store for fans of this series with this exciting game? Let's take an in-depth look at Fallout: Lonestar!
Fallout 4 is Fallout: Lonestar on PC!
The team associated with this ambitious project are all volunteer Fallout fans from all walks of life under the title of Terrorweed Games. The name derives from their own unique monster that exists in the game, essentially a ball of tumbleweed with concealed spider-like legs beneath it! Creepy stuff. The developers of this mod seem to be completely transforming the Fallout universe.
Means was at the GDC in Austin, where he met the creative director at Obsidian Entertainment, Chris Avellone. After telling him about the project that he was working on, Avellone convinced him to advance the project even further and transform it into something on a much grander scale. He aided him in getting his name out there and finding people from the Fallout community who would help him create this game.
The game aims to use its new setting to the best of the developers abilities. The area of El Paso, is sand filled and barren in this future. While showing off what happened in Texas, the game also gives fans a chance to see how Mexico would be affected by the nuclear fallout. Due to its desert city setting, they plan to play around with notions of in-climate weather and even the presence of cowboys!
The whole terrain of the game is actually already mapped off! But of course, the people who are working on the title are doing so in their spare time. Thus, a release date is nothing they can really give us. But you most certainly could be in with the chance to help the developers!
