Fallout, A New Frontier
After 7 years of development, Fallout: The Frontier is now available to play. Quoted as the largest mod ever created for Fallout New Vegas by the Frontier team. The Courier will explore a snowy Portland (Oregon), offering 3 main questlines lasting 15+ hours each.
The player can choose to fight alongside the NCR in a linear action-packed adventure lasting 35 hours. Or join the Legion in a dialogue-heavy story that offers a new look for the faction. The third main questline teams the courier up with the Crusaders of Steel, a Brotherhood of Steel-like faction in a blend between action-packed adventure and a story-driven experience.
