The era of remasters has brought about remakes for classic games, and one such game that could benefit from a modern makeover is the classic Fallout 2 from Black Isle Studios. Bethesda is currently considering whether or not to work on a remake of this classic game, but in the meantime, we have a fan project that brings the Fallout 2 original to life using the Fallout 4 engine.
Thanks to the Creation Engine, a mod for the Fallout 4 game will allow players to experience the classic 1998 RPG in a whole new light. The idea of reviving this classic game is extremely attractive, and the fact that it is a fan project adds to the appeal due to the massive scale of the project.
Known as Fallout 4: Project Arroyo, this independent project follows the path of previous projects like Fallout: London. Despite not being playable just yet, Project Arroyo has been in the works for four years and began as a graphical remastering project before expanding into a larger endeavor.
After years of preparation, the development team is finally ready to showcase their work. While details about how the gameplay of the original game will be adapted to this new version are still unknown, fans can expect to see iconic locations like Refugio 13, Arroyo, and Ghost Farm from a first-person perspective.
The accompanying video comes with a warning that the footage shown is not final, but even as a huge map reminiscent of the original game, it’s enough to excite fans. The team behind Project Arroyo has promised to continue working on bringing monsters, characters, and locations from the original Fallout 2 to this fourth installment of the game.
While there is no final launch date or planned tests, the team is calling for collaborators and support. Those interested in staying updated about the project can request access to its official Discord.
In other gaming news, Fallout London has a release date, and the next-gen version of Fallout 4 has been announced with a delay.
