Fallout: Nuevo México’s First Trailer Looks Impressive

There’s a battle of the fanmade Fallout games lining up quite nicely, and it seems that the chief contenders will be Fallout: London and (now) Fallout: Nuevo México. Recently, the developers of the latter title dropped the game’s first trailer – an 18-minute gameplay exposé – and it genuinely looks very impressive.

It has been in development for quite a while – like Fallout: London – but as a die-hard Fallout fan, I’m personally of the impression that Fallout: Nuevo México looks more polished and inviting. It’s a throwback to Fallout: New Vegas in how it behaves, but it’s bursting at the seams with originality and unique features.

¡Viva México!

In this brand-new Fallout game, which has been crafted from the ground up by a dedicated team of fans, players explore arid landscapes in what looks like a fair homage to 2010’s Fallout: New Vegas. There’s a decent soundtrack, some great voice acting, an immersive storyline, and tweaks have been made to the base combat engine that has made fighting look a little more unique.

Here’s the trailer:

Despite having quite a small team powering the game, Fallout: Nuevo México boasts plenty to keep Fallout fans on the edges of their seats waiting for news of a release window. In Nuevo México, players will reportedly have the ability to play as a ghoul for the first time ever, living in a ‘commune’ and enjoying all the benefits (and drastic disadvantages) of being ghoulified.

There are factions, a large, open-world map to explore, and the traditional multi-choice dialogue system that classic Fallout fans came to know and love before Fallout 4 changed the formula in 2015. Many fans consider Fallout: New Vegas to be the best game in the series, so Nuevo México could have already won over many more hearts and minds than Fallout: London, which is built on the foundations of Fallout 4.

Reportedly, Fallout: Nuevo México will be picking up more trailers in the near future, but a release date isn’t known as of yet.
