Can you believe that Obsidian’s Fallout: New Vegas released 10 years ago? Time definitely flies, and while it isn’t clear whether Obsidian will be getting any of that sweet, sweet Microsoft money for a potential sequel, the modders behind Fallout 4: New Vegas have celebrated the game’s anniversary with a new peek at their expansion project.

As you can probably guess from its title, Fallout 4: New Vegas is New Vegas rebuilt on the fourth installment’s Creation Engine. (If you’ll remember, the original version of New Vegas was built on Fallout 3’s engine, Gamebryo, which is no longer used by Bethesda.)

Assuming that Microsoft and Bethesda aren’t prepping cease and desist letters as we speak, the completed version of Fallout 4: New Vegas will replicate Obsidian’s wasteland tale in its “entirety.”

“You will be able to battle your way across the heat-blasted Mojave Wasteland once again all way to the neon drenched New Vegas Strip,” the team wrote. “Along the way, you’ll be reintroduced to a colorful cast of characters, factions, mutated creatures and much more in Fallout 4.”

“All of this is being painstakingly recreated in the Creation Engine 2.0 which powers Fallout 4 & The Skyrim Special Edition,” it added. “With this newly added power provided by Bethesda’s Game Studios, latest in-house Engine the Mojave Wasteland will feel more alive than ever before. Such as the New Vegas Strip being opened up to allow you the player to experience the New Vegas Strip like never before.”

You can check out the trailer for Fallout 4: New Vegas below. Looks pretty good for a fan project, no?
