Fallout New Vegas

Fallout New Vegas is the next game in the Fallout series. Notice it isn't Fallout 4, considering it is using the same engine used in Fallout 3 and is also being developed by Gearbox instead of Bethesda. Picture this as more of a huge stand alone expansion. Fallout New Vegas takes place three years after the events of Fallout 3, although you will not be playing the same hero (or villain I guess) that you did in F3. 

Many people just considered Fallout 3 to be Oblivion with guns, and frankly, that is not really going to change. In fact, this game is getting even closer to that by allowing plants to be picked up and used to craft ammo, stims, and chems. Oh yeah, there's a whole new crafting component to the game now as well. Along with that there is the ability to modify weapons (over 90 in game) as well.

What draws me to New Vegas is the addition of a new hardcore mode. This mode is going to test players in a more realistic apocalyptic environment. Ammo is going to weigh you down now and you have to drink to prevent yourself from becoming dehydrated. More care is going to be have to put into combat decisions so you can't just go running and gunning in hardcore mode. The mode is optional however, so don't sweat if this doesn't sound appealing to you. 

New Vegas launches on October 19th for those of us in North America, and on October 22nd in Europe.
