The Fallout: New Vegas team may have
ended its journey with Lonesome Road, but that hasn't stopped Obsidian's lead designer J.E.
Sawyer from extending the post-apocalyptic adventure for PC owners
with his own game-changing mod.
As detailed on No Mutants Allowed, the
unofficial add-on brings a whole new challenge to Bethesda's RPG.
Once applied, players must survive New Vegas with half XP rates,
lowered health, increased weight restraints, fewer NPC water and food
drops, and less healing options. In addition to upping the
difficulty, Sawyer's mod also adjusts Karma and Alignment values,
inventory weight, and the stats for various pieces of armor and
Sawyer coded the mod on his own free
time, and emphasized it is in no way an official release, writing, "Finally,
the game's over. The ship has sailed. No one is working on it
anymore. No testers, nothing. This mod is just me
working in my free time. If I horribly botch something, you can just
un-check the mod and go on your way.”
mod is available for download here, and requires all pieces of
Fallout: New Vegas DLC to function. Luckily enough, all pieces of DLC
will be included in the Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition, which
arrives for all platforms on February 7
in North America, and February 10
