You can now play the cancelled Fallout 2 sequel Van Buren in Fallout: New Vegas with this mod

"We will stay faithful to the original Van Buren story as much as possible."

A cancelled Fallout 2 sequel by Black Isle studios is now available to play in Fallout New Vegas courtesy of a new PC mod.

The game - which at the time had been codenamed Van Buren - takes place in 2253 and had been set in the great Midwest Commonwealth over four states. Sadly, it was cancelled in 2003, and while New Vegas inherited some aspects from the game, the Revelation Blue mod doesn't "treat [Fallout: New Vegas] as cannon [sic] in any way".

"The project's goal is to remake Van Buren for Fallout New Vegas," explains the mod creator (thanks, PC Gamer).

"Everything from the base game will be included in this remake. We will stay faithful to the original Van Buren story as much as possible, and in the future we plan to add in a large number of customized features. As of now, the project is still a [work in progress]."

There are several prerequisites to running it, including a load of FNV mods, so to check your requirements, head to the official mod page.

ICYMI, Fallout 76's big Locked & Loaded update went live last month, adding a raft of new features, chief among them the ability to build a second home. The update also lets you reboot your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. for the first time; after level 25, you can use Punch Card Machines to reset your S.P.E.C.I.A.L., change your perks, and save them into one of two custom loadouts.
