After being in the works for 8 years now, Fallout: New Vegas mod Project Brazil is nearing completion and has been renamed New California
A massive Fallout: New Vegas mod titled Project Brazil has now been renamed to New California and is expected to come out sometime this year. The mod was first announced in 2013 and had reportedly been in the works since way back in 2009.
Project Brazil (now New California) is slated to be an extremely ambitious mod which promises an entire standalone campaign of its own. It’s set as a prequel to Fallout: New Vegas and is set in the year 2260, a long time before the events of Fallout: New Vegas take place. The mod will supposedly have a Fallout 3 sized map (which is MASSIVE for a mod), an original cast of characters, and up to 5000 lines of professional-grade voice acting delivered by over 20 voice actors.
Project lead Brandon Lee said in a ModDB update that “New California is a superior name for this mod” to explain the change in the project’s name from Project Brazil. considering that the mod is all about California and the opening shot and intro are also set in California, not mention it revolves around the struggles of New California against the California Factions.
According to the mod description on Nexus Mods:“Fallout: New California follows the adventures of “the kid from Vault 18,” who makes a fateful decision on the final night of the Vault Ball season that will impact the future of the entire New California Republic. “Vault 18 is at the heart of the California Wasteland high in the San Bernardino Mountains, and it’s legendary Wasteland Scouts have managed to keep its secrets safe for decades despite the wars raging beyond the great door. In their old age, their adventures have created a new generation to take their place… if their rebellious adopted kids survive the threat brewing within their own ranks.”
Creation of the mod initially started with Fallout 3 but was shifted to New Vegas after it released in 2010. While the mod was going to be installed in three instalments, it will now instead be released in one full package, sometime later this year.
