Bethesda’s told MCV that pre-orders of Fallout: New Vegas are doing better then those for Fallout 3.

The Obsidian-developed title has been doing well for itself, even winning several E3 awards, and now, the publisher says demand for the title is now larger than the 2008 sequel.

“Fallout: New Vegas pre-orders are far outstripping those of Fallout 3,” said Bethesda’s EU director, Sarah Seaby. “Based on the feedback from gamers, we anticipate fans will enjoy returning to the Fallout universe, where they will experience a new story in an exciting New Vegas setting.

“While players will find Fallout: New Vegas very familiar due to the similar control scheme found in Fallout 3, they’ll also find that the developers over at Obsidian have made a number of refinements after taking a look at fan feedback.

“We’re looking forward to when the game launches across Europe on October 22nd.”

For the record, you should keep an eye out for New Vegas, going on by what we saw of it back in April.

Fallout: New Vegas releases on October 19 in the US and October 22 in Europe for PS3, 360 and PC.
