Some people believe that the apocalypse means the end of all things. Those people are wrong. The end actually comes after another 40 or so hours. But then, hoo-boy, there is most definitely an end. At least that’s what Obsidian Entertainment is saying about the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas.
You may remember a little game called Fallout 3 and, if you do, you may also remember that the main story, once it was completed…game over. But it’s ok, Bethesda quickly learned the error of their ways and allowed players to continue their adventures via the plethora of Fallout 3 DLC.
Apparently Obsidian is determined to walk the same path, although they’re hoping for better results. New Vegas project director, Josh Sawyer, explains:
We talked about trying to support post-game play, but because the changes that can happen at the end of the game are pretty major, this is what it basically came down to: either have the changes feel really major in the end slides and then have them not be very major after the end of the game, or make them really minor and not that impactful.
Jason Bergman, senior producer, added that the New Vegas UI would warn players of the impending “point of no return”.
