‘Fallout 3’ heading to Las Vegas



Bethesda Game Studio’s post-apocalyptic role-playing shooter “Fallout 3” is the gift that keeps on giving.

The video game designer announced recently that a new chapter in the award-winning “Fallout” series – set in Las Vegas and titled “New Vegas” – will be released by the end of the year. A teaser for the added-on adventure was posted to Bethesda’s official Web site, http://fallout.bethsoft.com.

This is not the first “sequel” to the original “Fallout 3,” which won Game of the Year honors upon its release in 2008. The adventure, which has players tracking their missing father through a nuclear-devastated Washington, D.C., spawned five downloadable levels that continued the game’s action. The most popular, “Broken Steel,” actually changed the ending of the original game by resurrecting the main hero, thereby allowing players to continue the adventure beyond the initial stopping point.
