Fallout 4: New Vegas was a mod created for the was a mod aimed toward recreating Fallout: New Vegas in the Fallout 4 engine. After much of hype, the development team has now shared the first ten minutes of gameplay, which give us a look at character creation as well.
Here’s what Wccftech has to say about the gameplay video:
Our level design team, meanwhile, has been carrying on with the difficult task of building the Mojave outwards and making the desert an interesting place to explore. Alongside this, work has been put into lighting tweaks for some key sequences that are already present in the game to ensure that things are looking as good as they possibly can be and doing so while running well. It’s easy to get caught up in all the environmental art from time to time, as well as the promise of a newer engine without the restrictions of needing to release on consoles, and as such end up overdoing things and causing a hit to performance. Our work process allows us to mitigate this, so as to ensure that F4NV remains running as smoothly as possible.
Finally, our scripting team has been neck deep in quest-related systems over the last couple of weeks, with their efforts distributed between a few different core systems as well as more cinematic events. Many of the systems in New Vegas that were used in one or two places can be somewhat more difficult to rebuild in the Fallout 4 engine, and so a period of careful work with F4SE can be necessary to ensure that those systems function as they did or even better than in New Vegas.
