Ever wonder what Las Vegas might look like in the future? If so, then look no further than Fallout: New Vegas, a game that takes place during the year 2281, four years after the events of Fallout 3, and 204 years after the Great War of 2077. Continue reading to see more awesome comparison shots.
The city and its surroundings are divided between various factions, but there are three major powers competing for control of the region: The New California Republic (NCR), Caesar’s Legion, and Mr. House. The NCR’s military, returning from Fallout 2, is now overextended and mismanaged, but controls the majority of territories in the Mojave. The slave-driving, Roman army-styled Caesar’s Legion, formed by its leader, Caesar, conquered and united 86 tribes and now plans to conquer New Vegas.
Mr. House, the mysterious businessman rumoured to be 200 years old, controls New Vegas with an army of “Securitron” security robots. There are many other factions and groups as well, including the Boomers, a tribe of heavily armed vault dwellers, Powder Gangers, violent groups of escaped convicts, Great Khans, a tribe of drug dealers and raiders, and the Brotherhood of Steel, the technology-craving remnants of the U.S. military. Landmarks featured in Fallout: New Vegas include the Hoover Dam, which supplies power to the city, Nellis Air Force Base and the HELIOS One solar energy plant.
