Why everyone is trying to kill you in Fallout: New Vegas

Bethesda has released a new developer diary for Fallout: New Vegas, which teases the post-apocalyptic adventure’s main story. “In New Vegas we wanted to say “You start the game in a very ‘Vegas,’ sort of, cliché style, almost. You are shot in the head and dropped in a shallow grave. So, it starts with, essentially, your would-be death,” says project director J.E. Sawyer.

As the mystery unfolds, you find out that the people trying to kill you were after a package you were holding. “What you were carrying is essentially tied into this major conflict in the area between New California Republic, and Ceaser’s Legion, and Mr. House, who’s the guy who sort of runs the strip in New Vegas,” explains Sawyer.

Check out the video for more story teasers and insights into the development team’s storytelling goals in New Vegas. Fallout: New Vegas is scheduled to release on Oct 19 in North America for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The game will release on Oct 22 for European audiences.

    I like fallout 2 best, and it looks like Pure ass. Despite one of the old ones being my favorite, i still really liked 3, the combat was Fun, and it really felt like a Fallout game despite being a major departure from the Ordinals. my only gripe was that it felt too mature, i liked 2 because is was silly and full of sex jokes and Pop culture reference's. New Vegas seems like a Return to the wacky style of 2, so i look forward to it greatly.

    "Humanity has this unending appetite for killing each other" Man, it must have been hard to get this game out, what with everyone in the office poisoning each others coffee or throwing grenades in their cubicles. Hope there's enough surviving developers to get it to gold.
