Bethesda says Fallout: New Vegas coming next year


Flash! Bethesda just announced Fallout: New Vegas at a fancy event in London Town. It’s for the usual suspects—the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC—and will be available sometime next year.

Obsidian Entertainment is developing the game. You may remember those guys from Neverwinter Nights 2 and KotOR II. I guess Obsidian is king of the sequels.

And while Fallout: Vegas isn’t a new game in its own right, Bethesda says it’s “simply another Fallout game in that universe.” Somehow the phrase “simply another Fallout game” strikes me as odd. Why make “simply another” of anything? Where’s the creativity in that?

In other Fallout news, I tried playing Fallout 3 again last night, but quickly grew frustrated. “Where the hell am I supposed to go? Where am I? Nuts to this, I’ll just read a book.” And I did.
