British gaming magazine PSM3 recently reported that Fallout: New Vegas-developer Obsidian Entertainment, which also developed the original Fallout as well as its first sequel, has provided an extensive upgrade to the dialogue system and the script of the game, as compared to Fallout 3.
Larry Liberty, lead producer for Fallout: New Vegas, stated that the development team “want[s] real, memorable characters. I think it helps you to remember parts of the world you’d otherwise forget.” To achieve this, the developers have had to modify to dialogue system that was used in Fallout 3. Furthermore, the reporter stated that the overall script of the game is wittier than that of the previous instalment and that of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which also aids in making the characters found within the world of New Vegas more distinct.
The game is set for a release later this year on PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
