Fallout: New Vegas Q&A
How big is the overall map in Fallout: New Vegas compared to Fallout 3?
It’s comparable to Fallout 3 – it’s about the same size.
Does siding with one faction in the game preclude you from talking to others?
Sometimes. You have the two big forces warring in New Vegas – the New California Republic and Cesar’s Legion. There’s no one particular example, but depending on which side you favour it definitely alienates you from the other one.
Is there any overarching Enclave-style enemy?
That’s kind of the big question – it depends how you want to approach the game. There’s a lot of different ways to approach the endgame – there’s a big war that’s about to take place between the NCR and Cesar’s Legion. Depending on which side you favour, by default the other side almost becomes your enemy. Even so, it’s not as clear-cut as that. For example you can strike out on your own, as one potential ending. It’s all dependent on your choices.
Does the game dialogue differ in tone to Fallout 3?
We’ve got a range [of tones] in NewVegas. There’s some characters you’ll encounter in the game, like Fantastic, that are humorous. But at the same time there will be moments and conversations in the game where you should not be smiling at all. We try to run the range, to have that contrast there.
Is Fallout: New Vegas linked in any way to Fallout 3?
No. You saw the distance between the two locations. It takes place three years after the events of the capital wasteland – you actually won’t see any repercussions from Fallout 3 in New Vegas, because of the distance ant the rather short timeframe.
How many mods can you add to each weapon?
It can go up to three for some of the weapons, if I recall correctly. It all depends on the weapon type. If you have the mod, it’ll definitely give an advantage to that weapon – os it’s not an either/or situation.
Malcolm McDowell and Liam Neeson were in Fallout 3 – what about New Vegas?
We can’t currently say!
