Mods and fan games for the Fallout series are plentiful. In fact, we have been following the progress of Fallout London, a brand-new game built using the Fallout 4 engine, for quite some time.
A fan of New Vegas may be in for a dream realized now that another competitor has entered the ring.
The fan game Nuevo Mexico was created in Fallout New Vegas, as the name would imply. However, that description hardly does justice to what the developers have unveiled today.
There are many things we learn about this new Fallout game in an 18-minute gameplay video. It is set many years before the newer games, during the time period of the original Fallout.
The version of Fallout 3 that the original developers were working on before Bethesda bought the franchise seems to have been a source of inspiration.
Overall, Nuevo México appears to have been developed by a group that has a strong affinity for the original Fallout games.
The game creates a new world and story that is different from the previous main games, instead of using familiar characters like the Brotherhood of Steel or the Enclave.
Describing it is complex, but the overall ambiance is reminiscent of traversing through Fallout 2’s barren lands. However, instead of dwelling in the debris of post-war devastation, communities are diligently working towards rejuvenation.
