As Bethesda Softworks focuses on Fallout 76 development, fans continue to experiment with previous installments in the series. One of them showed what the Fallout 2 location could look like on Unreal Engine 5, while others recreated the entire Fallout: New Vegas map in Minecraft.
YouTube channel owner Anil ISBILIR has recreated the Klamath Settlement from Fallout 2 on Unreal Engine 5. Utilizing the Lumen dynamic global illumination system and SSAO (Screen Space Ambient Light Blocking) technique, the enthusiast got the sky with the natural movement of clouds with the Ultra Plugin Dynamic Sky by Everett Gunther.
Some of the models I made myself, some I borrowed from others (the Chryslus Corvega is the work of Jonathan Bogart, a self-taught Australian artist), but most of these are free materials from the Quixel Megascans library with minimal editing. Anil ISBILIR has no plans to release a remake – this is just one example of how a modern engine can change a classic game.
But the Fallout: New Vegas map in Minecraft isn’t just a demonstration. Anyone can learn it: for this you must join the reel server through the official Minecraft New Vegas community discord. The authors recreated the game world on a 1:1 scale, editing, among other things, sounds and textures in the pixelated style of the original, adding the necessary mechanics (skill distribution, leveling up, survival, etc.) and transferring all items, including weapons, equipment and food. Users can create a character in the editor, join one of the factions, and engage in dialogue with known NPCs and other players.
The Minecraft New Vegas gameplay trailer has received over 280,000 views and 15,000 likes.
Although Bethesda Game Studios plans to wait until after the release of The Elder Scrolls VI to begin work on the next major fallout, rumors of a new installment in the franchise have been piling up in recent years. In 2021, VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb reported on talks with Microsoft to develop a sequel to Fallout: New Vegas, and in April of the same year, a mysterious NewVegas2 test branch opened in the Steam version of Fallout 4 (which, however, may not be compatible with it related). to continue).
One way or another, interest in Fallout: New Vegas doesn’t just remain with fans: In February of this year, Fallout co-writers Timothy Cain (Timothy Cain) and Leonard Boyarsky (Leonard Boyarsky) announced the publication The gamers about wanting to see a remaster of it.
