Fallout New Vegas

Fallout: New Vegas is an open world action role-playing video game and is the fourth major installment of the Fallout video game series. The game was developed by Obsidian Entertainment over 18 months and published by Bethesda Softworks. It was announced in April 2009, and released for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 19, 2010, with the Xbox 360 version becoming backwards compatible on Xbox One on June 23, 2016.[6] The game is set in a post-apocalyptic, open world environment that encompasses a region consisting of parts of Nevada, California, and Arizona. It is set, like all Fallout games, in a world that deviated onto an alternate timeline thanks to atomic age technology, which eventually led to its devastation by a nuclear apocalypse in the year 2077 in an event referred to as "The Great War." This war was caused by a major international conflict between the United States and China over natural resources and the last remaining supplies of untapped petroleum. The main story of Fallout: New Vegas takes place in the year 2281, four years after the events of Fallout 3. It is not a direct sequel, but it does mark the return of some elements found in the Black Isle Studios-developed Fallout 2. Inon Zur composed its music.

Players take control of a character known as Courier 6. While transporting a package across the Mojave Desert to the city of New Vegas for the Mojave Express delivery service, the Courier is ambushed, robbed of the package, shot in the head, and left for dead. After miraculously surviving, the Courier begins a journey to find their would-be killer and recover the package, makes friends and enemies among various factions, and ultimately becomes caught up in a conflict that determines who will control New Vegas and the Mojave Wasteland. New Vegas has received positive reviews, with reviewers praising the game's writing, quests, and improved gameplay. It received criticism for its glitches and bugs. New Vegas was a commercial success, shipping more than 5 million copies altogether, and is estimated to have sold around 12 million copies worldwide. It received a Golden Joystick Award for "RPG of the Year" in 2011.
