Fallout: Nuevo Mexico is a massive mod coming to PC and it's going to be free

The Fallout series is not only a firm favourite RPG under the Bethesda umbrella but it’s also one of the most favoured franchises of time that has been going strong for nearly three decades.

Other than being a fantastic series in its own right offering immersive gameplay mechanics, enticing worlds, interesting characters and deadly foes, the Fallout series is one of the best-supported games in the modding community and Fallout: New Vegas is no exception.

One of the most highly anticipated mods is coming to Fallout 4 this year, Fallout: London. “As a divergence from previous official titles in the series, Fallout: London is not set in America. Visiting a totally new setting allows us to explore totally new cultures which have not homogenised with their American counterparts. It also allows us to explore pre-war European history, and the effects the Resource Wars had on the class-structured society of pre-war Britain,” explained the team behind the mod.

Now, we have another massive mod to look forward to and this time it’s taken from Fallout: New Vegas, and it’s going to be totally free. The mod in question is Fallout: Nuevo México and it will allow players to pick between human or ghoul origins, which makes for an interesting concept. Fallout: Nuevo México is set five years after the events of the original Fallout released in 1997 on PC.

Fallout: Nuevo México is being created by a team of modders led by Zapshock. When chatting with Game Rant, Zapshock explained the process behind Fallout: Nuevo México. “I wasn’t the biggest fan of Fallout 4’s dialogue trees,” said Zapshock. “I tried using the creation kit and I think it’s really good if you want to make a linear type of story, but I tried and yeah, no. We felt like we weren’t going to be able to do what we could with the ghoul origin and all that RPG stuff that we have in this project.”

Zapshock went on to explain why unlike Fallout: Britain which uses Fallout 4, they choose Fallout: New Vegas for Fallout: Nuevo México, and it’s largely due to the scripting capabilities of the 2010 post-apocalyptic RPG.

“I think one of the main things Fallout: New Vegas gave us was scripting capabilities. The Fallout: New Vegas Script Extender has other extensions, like JIP LN, Lutana, and all these different sorts of Script Extender downloadable content that people can get, and that all expand the code, so we can do more scripting magic.”

At the time of writing, Fallout: Nuevo México does not have a release date but hopefully it will be available on PC at some point this year.
