Fallout: New Vegas
Fallout: New Vegas Studio Working on "Unique Next Generation Game"
Written By
View author's profile

Obsidian Entertainment is advertising for a level designer role to help create a "unique next generation game".

The Fallout: New Vegas developer is calling for someone with "a love of role-playing and action games,” to “work closely with artists to produce interesting 3D levels with exciting, engaging gameplay. Responsibilities will include planning and populating missions/quests, scripted sequences, encounters, challenges and rewards."

In addition to this, Obsidian is also looking for a user interface and experience artist for a next-gen project, which is presumably one and the same. The studio is also developing a title called Project Eternity for PC, Mac and Linux, which became the highest-backed game on Kickstarter (for a bit).

We're sure you don't need reminding, but the next generation Xbox is set to be revealed on May 21st.

NV sucked big time compared to fallout 3 though. Never seen so many bugs in a game, and I mean game breaking bugs. Doors that won't open anymore so you can't continue the game, falling through the floor, being stuck in some rock and not being able to get unstuck again.

So if they make a new Fallout game for the next gen, please let Bethesda make it themselves, don't let Obsidian near it. Fallout 3 was the bomb, NV sucked ass.

I would love a full Obsidian RPG with a third-person and combat dynamic such as GOW. A full open world with quests and loot AND a good story. But with intense combat.

As much I would really love another Fallout, I think the key word here maybe 'Unique' unfortunately. But on the bright side they also said the phrase 'role-playing' so it gets my attention.

Why are people giving #9's comment thumbs down? NV really was trash compared to 3.

I liked FO3 better, and NV was slightly buggier, but NV is hardly trash. It's pretty great, actually. (Note: I didn't downvote anyone though, I don't do that)

NV trumps 3 in every aspect. (3 was immense btw).
some people had groundbreaking bugs, most had none at all.

waiting on Fallout 4

Fallout 4 would be nice, but KOTOR 3 would be better.

@15 & 20

I believe The Stick of Truth is already a finished deal, the game was delayed due to THQ going under so the license had to be bought and all that good legal stuff before it can be released.

Haha man, is this site crowded by little children these days? Damn haha. Feels almost like a dictatorial country, where you can't express your opinion. Yes Fallout NV had alot of bugs, yes more then Fallout 3, yes it felt like some extra DLC for Fallout 3. Now let the negative comments begin. It's an opinion! Jeez. Except the bugs part, thats just a fact ;)

I thought New Vegas had a fantastic sense of humor! I didn't run into nearly as many bugs as some people claimed, and I purchased it within the first week.

I look forward to Obsidian's next gen, whatever it may be. I'm also anxiously awaiting their South Park RPG that's been in limbo thanks to THQ's incompetence.

I also pledged for their Kickstarter game as well. They're an under appreciated company.

I didn't realize Obsidian was big enough to already be working on a next gen game when South Park hasn't come out yet. I want South Park!

I honestly like both Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. Both had there own issues, but I wouldn't change anything other than the price of DLC. Cheaper to get the Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition for 12.99 and Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition 27.99 with all the DLC at Gamestop. Hope to have the similar content on Fallout 4 and the next generation game.

I loved Fallout 3, but Fallout New Vegas was just better. Iron sights were a big step up, along with weapon mods, skill magazines, the merge of Big Guns and Small guns, companion characters who were actually interesting to talk to, Though Fawkes was very interesting, there were no character missions for FO3 characters really.

Add in the DLC and the epic story behind the Couriers, and New Vegas was just a natural step up. Even if it was buggy, if you're even remotely good at RPGs, you save often enough that it doesn't matter, and if you really appreciate the game (because it is good) then having to restart it every so often doesn't matter much.

As for this topic, I really hope it's either another Fallout or KOTOR 3. Either would make me very happy.

Hopefully they don't release a game with even more bugs than Bethesda again...
Of course, I didn't have any bugs with my copies of any Fallout or Elder Scrolls games on 360.

i remember reading quite a while back that obsidian won the licence for a wheel of time game, robert jordan agreed all of this whilst he was alive and licenced obsidian to produce a game or series of games staying true to the wot story. (it would be about time to be fair as the wot is one of the richest and most detailed fanatsy epic of decades) the franchise deserves a decent game, if anyone has up to date info confirming or rubbishing this then post it as i cant find any info since 2011

@ 14 - Assuming that is an Alpha Protocol sequel, hell yes. If they could fix all the little issues with a game like Alpha Protocol, they could make it one of the best games going at the moment. AP was great, but flawed. Fix those flaws and you have a game that I'd buy in a heartbeat.

And while New Vegas was buggy, I did enjoy that game quite a lot. It's not as good as Fallout 3, but still worth playing.
