Fallout: New Vegas was released 10 years ago–on October 19, 2010–and to mark the occasion a group of Fallout 4 modders aiming to recreate the classic has released a new trailer of their progress. The Fallout 4: New Vegas project uses the Fallout 4 creation engine tools, with some impressive results.
The new video is just under two minutes, but in it you get a broad look at the world of New Vegas as reimagined with the prettier sheen of Fallout 4. It’s especially impressive when you consider that Fallout 4 took place in and around Boston, far from the dusty and mountainous desert depicted in New Vegas.
The Fallout 4: New Vegas team has been dropping comparison screenshots on its Facebook page. The mod group hasn’t given a release date or details.
Fallout: New Vegas has gained cult classic status, having been created as a Fallout spin-off by Obsidian. When Microsoft purchased Obsidian, it was nearing completion of its space-faring RPG The Outer Worlds. But now that Microsoft has acquired Bethesda, it owns both the Fallout franchise and the studio that made New Vegas, leaving open the possibility of a New Vegas 2.
