Fallout: New Vegas Will ‘Take You Hundreds of Hours to Explore’

Speaking to USA Today, Bethesda's Pete Hines revealed that Fallout: New Vegas will take players "hundreds of hours to explore every nook and cranny." Hines also described the game's back story, explaining how it takes place in Las Vegas in 2280, over 200 years after the nuclear holocaust.

As seen in the trailer released a couple weeks ago, players start out buried in dirt in a desert. The package you were delivering is missing, and a robot digs you out and takes you to Doc Mitchell.

"Unlike the previous Fallouts, where you start in a vault and you are a vault dweller, this one starts with a curve ball," Hines said. "You were a courier, and you were obviously carrying something that somebody wanted. Part of the story is finding out what you had and what they took.

“[New Vegas] has a brand new, fresh experience that has a familiar feel of Fallout, but otherwise it’s an entirely new game and a new look, with Joshua trees and tumbleweeds and blue skies.

"Vegas is up and running. It is not a ghost town. It still exists and thrives. There are casinos, and you can go down onto the Strip. It will have a very different feel from that standpoint," he adds.

"It is a massive game world that will take you hundreds of hours to explore every nook and cranny."

Fallout: New Vegas will be releasing this fall for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
