Fallout New Vegas gets mod-made prequel

A group of modders are preparing a prequel to Fallout New Vegas, code-named ‘Project Brazil’ and it looks mightily impressive.

Some might turn their heads when someone mentions a fan-made project, but the team behind Project Brazil genuinely seem to have an understanding of the Fallout franchise, and want to create something truly special,

“Project Brazil is a quieter, more harsh and severe world than Fallout 3 or New Vegas,” writes modder Thaiauxn. “It feels like a real place spotted with rare moments of absurdity and fear, split between multiple rising civilizations all trying to fight for what they want or need in a world recovering from the Great War.”

The Project Brazil entry on Mod DB states: “This mod adds an all new story around a new player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, embarking on a quest to a hidden complex called ‘Brazil’ in the ruins of Los Angeles. Along the way, you’ll discover a pitched battle between the Survivalist Army, the New California Republic, and The Super Mutants, which shapes the politics and events leading to the NCR’s invasion of the Mojave. The story takes place in 2260—many years before the ‘Courier’ awakes in New Vegas, while the Enclave struggles to rise again on the West Coast.”

Sounds ambitious, doesn’t it?  The full campaign will eventually contain 16 primary quests and “several side stories, all related to the player’s journey through Vault 18 and the wasteland of San Bernardino.”

Thaiauxn were intending to get the first part of ‘Project Brazil’  out in January, but they’re currently behind schedule. The team still seems to be seeking additional help, and is asking for writers, scripters, and modelers.

Here’s a trailer showing what it’s all about.
