One of the many interesting Fallout modding projects currently in the works is Nuevo México, with the team behind it having just put out a cool new teaser.
If you’re unfamiliar with Fallout Nuevo México, it’s a mod that was originally announced back in 2021 and is set to take players on a fresh adventure set just five years after the events of Black Isle’s original Fallout game. Think something like Fallout: London, but maybe a little bit smaller, using New Vegas’ engine instead of Fallout 4’s, and with the countryside of the American southwest replacing the ruined urban sprawl.
After putting out a big gameplay trailer back in July, the team behind the mod have been a bit quiet, but they’ve now put out a fresh mini-teaser for fans to check out, as well as offering a bit of a roadmap for their plans going forwards. The teaser video is dubbed ‘Four Corners States’, likely due to the fact the first thing it shows is Nuevo México’s rendition of the Four Corners Monument, a real life landmark that marks the spot where the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah meet.
As things progress, you get a good look at some of the different locations you’ll encounter in it, which sit in environments that range from sandy deserts that boast towering buttes, to snowy forested areas that look a bit like the surroundings of New Vegas’ Jacobstown.
Before the music starts to kick in, there’s a bit of voiceover, which ominously declares: “We were told we would see America come and go. In a sense, America is dying… from within...because they forgot the instructions on how to live on earth.”
Interestingly, as far as I can tell, this passage seems to be a quote from Native American rights campaigner and actor Floyd Red Crow Westerman.
In its Tweet about the new teaser, the Nuevo Mexico team said: “This is Side Content, we'll do a gameplay trailer next year, along with one more unrevealed state when we get the showcases for the big stuff done first. We hope this [gives] people faith we are still working hard on this project.”
