Fallout 4 New Vegas Conversion Mod Receives Crazily Accurate 10 Minute Teaser

Published

Fallout

Fallout 4: New Vegas, a total New Vegas conversion mod set in 4‘s engine, has received a 10-minute gameplay trailer that has staggering attention to detail.

The showcase, embedded below, recreates the opening minutes of New Vegas, where players go through the rudimentary stages of character creation with Doc Mitchell. All of the assets are drawn out of Fallout 4, the updated character models and landscape fidelity of which look great in the Mojave sun.

What stands out, even though the teaser only takes place in a small house, is the degree of accuracy in the mod team’s transference, with each small idiosyncrasy of New Vegas captured in Bethesda’s Creation engine.  The only issue potential fans seem to have is from 4‘s relatively poorer animation quality, which is considered a significant failing in Bethesda’s updated engine.

The mod also features a completely new voice cast, with Doc Mitchell’s actor, Dominic James, doing an excellent job at recreating the famous doc’s raspy croon. Fallout 4: New Vegas will also contain cut content from the original New Vegas release, ensuring even the most ardent fans can find something new here.

No release date has been revealed as of yet, but the conversion is looking to be a herculean effort for the small team, so estimations are up in the air.

Pokémon Developer Game Freak Emphasizes Original Game Creation

Pokémon

Game Freak, best known for the Pokémon franchise, is starting to emphasize and prioritize original game creation.

In an interview with Video Game Chronicle, Masayuki Onoue, a director at Game Freak, says that the company has launched Gear Project, an initiative in which developers pitch ideas during slower periods between big releases to create more original games other than just Pokémon.

Onoue also spoke about Production Team 1 and Team 2 at Game Freak, the first prioritizing Gear Project for the company as a whole and the second focusing on Pokemon. He noted that Gear Project allows the developers to gain more experience working on different platforms such as PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, as well as transferring new skills and techniques they learned back to the Pokémon team.

Some of the games that Game Freak has released so far through Gear Project are HarmoKnight, Pocket Card Jockey, Tembo the Badass Elephant, and Giga Wrecker. Game Freak is also developing Town, an RPG game that was shown off in a Nintendo Direct back in September 2018 and is due out this year.

Additionally, Game Freak is working on Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the latest entries in Nintendo’s flagship franchise. Both of those are set to release later this year.
