Fallout 4 was announced recently at E3, much to the delight of the entire gaming population of planet earth (or at least, most of them). One surprise that came with the announcement was the release date of the game – November 10 2015. Assuming there are no delays, we can all be out exploring the brand new wasteland in less than 3 months! That’s still many weeks away however, giving everybody ample time to distract themselves with older Fallout titles. Got a copy of New Vegas lying around? Give it some new life with this complete conversion mod called Project Brazil which should hopefully be out in its entirety before Fallout 4 ships later this year.
What does the mod entail? Here’s a quick overview (via VG247):
This is a near Total Conversion for Fallout: New Vegas. Fallout: Project Brazil adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, embarking on a quest to a hidden complex in the ruins of Los Angeles.
Along the way you’ll discover a pitched battle between the Survivalist Army, the New California Republic, and The Super Mutants, which shapes the politics and events leading to the NCR’s invasion of the Mojave. The story takes place in 2260 – many years before the “Courier” awakes in New Vegas, while the Enclave struggles to rise again on the West Coast.
- An Alternate Start in Vault 18 with a New Player Character and Main Quest
- A New Intro Video to really give it that “New Game”feeling
- An Ornate Main Quest Line with Compelling Side Quests rich in Fallout & Character Lore
- Hours of Voice Acting recorded at pro-quality in Radian-Helix Media’s Tucson, Az Studio
- A Very Large Worldspace in California – The Black Bear Mountain National Forest
- An Epic War between The Super Mutants, The Survivalist Raiders, and The New California Republic
- A Pirate Radio Station DETH 981 with 2 New DJs and Quest + Crafting + Perk Unlocking Segments
- A News Radio Station called NCRPR – New California Republic Radio – with quest updates in the News
- 5 Potential Human Companions and 2 Robot Companions available depending on player choices
If this seems familiar to you, no, you have not developed the power of foresight. Project Brasil, or at least part of it, was released way back in 2013. Many have thought the project died out.
In a recent blog post however, the developers state otherwise. They’ve detailed a lot of new information, and released a ton of screenshots showing what they’ve been working on:
If you played the 1.3.1 Wasteland preview from 2 years ago, you’ll hardly recognize it now.
