Fallout: New Vegas is one of the most beloved RPGs of all time, and it can be very difficult to run well on a modern PC. Developer Obsidian’s leadership would love to change that if given the chance, with game directors Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky saying they’d like to remaster the game.
In a recent interview with TheGamer, The Outer Worlds production manager Eric DeMilt said the team would like to give New Vegas a makeover, noting that the game had significant technical issues at launch.
“When it came out, it had stability issues,” DeMilt said. “They got over it and now people can come back to this game because these characters and stories are just rich and people want to be in there.” Cain and Boyarsky agreed with DeMilt’s sentiment, calling the prospect of a graphical remaster “amazing”.
More than a decade after its release, New Vegas is arguably the most beloved game in the Fallout series, although some prefer the explosive Washington, DC of its predecessor, Fallout 3. Some old-school fans might also throw in the original Fallout 1 or 2 in the mix as well. Although the game received considerable criticism upon release for its recurring technical issues–particularly frequent crashes–New Vegas is widely loved for its writing quality, characters, and unique faction reputation system. Last year, Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb said that some at Microsoft were discussing a hypothetical New Vegas 2.
Obsidian recently announced The Outer Worlds: Spacer’s Choice Edition, which will improve graphics, load times, and more.
