Bethesda Sofworks says Obsidian Entertainment's Fallout
project, New Vegas
, will be part of this year's fall lineup, revealing a new teaser trailer
] for the title along the way.
The title will release on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in 2010, the company announced today. Fallout: New Vegas
is intended as a follow-up to 2008's critically-acclaimed Fallout 3
, and sets players in post-apocalyptic Las Vegas.
Bethesda first announced the project
in 2009, and while few details were revealed, the company's Pete Hines did stress Fallout: New Vegas
was neither a direct sequel nor a spin-off to Fallout 3
"It's not Fallout Tactics
-- it's not Brotherhood Of Steel
. It's another Fallout game," Hines said at the time. "It has no impact on what [Bethesda Game Studios game director] Todd Howard and his guys are planning."
A number of Obsidian staff are veterans of Black Isle's original Fallout
games. The company's CEO, Feargus Urquhart, was instrumental in founding Black Isle, and served as its director.
