Fallout New Vegas is the highly anticipated sequel to Fallout 3. It takes place in the Mojave wasteland 200 years after a nuclear war between the US and China. Unlike the post apocalyptic ruins of Washington, DC, in Fallout 3, Vegas was of inconsequential strategic value and was not hit by atomic weapons. However, as the Fallout series states, “War never changes.” When the civilization collapsed, it left anarchy and a power vacuum that the game’s main factions have risen to fill. The New California Republic has begun its eastward expansion, intent on restoring order and claiming the resources of the Hoover Dam. A modern day ‘Caesar’ unified 86 ‘tribes’ to form Caesar’s Legion and is intent on forcibly restoring honor and morality to the waste. The overseer of one of the game’s iconic prewar bomb shelters, Vault 21, has restored order and claimed power in sin city, New Vegas, with an army of prewar robots. The player stumbles into this power struggle and quickly embarks on a quest of revenge, the outcome of which will shape the future of New Vegas.
