Fallout New Vegas Opening Remade In Fallout 4 Mod (VIDEO)
Fallout 4: New Vegas is one of the most ambitious fan projects in the making for Fallout 4. The mod’s development team, under the direction of modder Nakiosan, are making the lofty promise of re-creating Fallout: New Vegas in its entirety in the Fallout 4 Creation Engine. That’s right. Every area, quest, character, and creature will be re-made in the new version of the creation engine for Fallout fans to experience them all over again.
Obviously, the mod is going to take a time to completely develop even if the team stays nose to the grindstone on getting the project done. There have been promised consistent updates along the way, and boy did they deliver a big one yesterday. Check out the video below:
Yep, that’s the entire opening sequence where the player wakes up in Doc Mitchell’s house given a stunning Creation Engine makeover. The graphical fidelity on display here is a real treat for fans who have seen this part a million times, and the subtle changes are also a cute little treat. You can see that the perk illustrations are all animated now like they are in Fallout 4. Many of these perks and the returning traits were not found in 4, and now we’re seeing them return with a fresh coat of paint. The skill system returns in the project as well, which will certainly be good news for fans who missed this portion of the game when it wasn’t included in the previous game.
You may notice that Doc Mitchell sounds a bit different this time, that’s due to the team needing to re-record all of the dialogue in the game. Bethesda has given the project their blessing, however, they weren’t willing to pay to re-license all the voice over work as they wouldn’t profit from this free fan project. This part of the project will undoubtedly take a lot of time, but if every part of the game looks this good? I can wait all the time in the world.
