Thrid Fallout: New Vegas developer diary discusses art direction

Thursday, 30th September 2010 16:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Bethesda has released a third developer diary for Fallout: New Vegas, and in it, Obsidian chats about the game’s art direction.

In the video posted below, the development teams discusses how it made sure the game still looked like a post-apocalyptic world reminiscent of the 50s, while still bringing in the flash and dash of Vegas as the backdrop.

There is also a discussion about the aesthetics of the landscape, how Vegas reflects the Rat Pack era, and how the houses in the game are stuck in either the Sinatra and Martin era, or an earlier time when miners were seeking their fortune in the desert.

We’ll stop rambling now and let you get to watching it.

You can also catch up on the previous dev diaries here and here.

Fallout: New Vegas is out next month for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Thanks, EvilAvatar.

    The premise behind this, and the ‘original’ Fallout 3, strike me as my perfect game but the character animation, shooter mechanics and graphics all look like they need more development time.

    The only prob i had with fallout3 was voice-acting… it was horable the same guy/girl did like 100 diferente characters that had all the same voice. I hope they fix that.
