Fallout: New Vegas is a video role-playing game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks. While New Vegas is not a direct sequel, it is in the same style as Fallout 3, and has been developed by some of the developers of Fallout and Fallout 2. It is set in and around New Vegas, the Fallout-equivalent of Las Vegas.
New Vegas is the post-War remnant of the city of Las Vegas, Nevada, deep in the Mojave Wasteland. Unlike most of the other major cities of the United States, Las Vegas was not critically hit by atomic weapons during the Great War. Most of the damage was done by the fall of society and government across the United States, background radiation or the general decay of post-atomic society. The city itself is walled off by the tattered remains of billboards, which makes access the city difficult. New Vegas takes up a large portion of the Mojave Wasteland, but there are plenty of nearby settlements as well as large numbers of raiders.

|The Fallout world is not quite our own. It is an alternate reality which diverged from ours at some point after the second World War.
The base concept for the setting is the World of Tomorrow as imagined in the Golden Age of Science Fiction. This means that before the Great War, the Fallout world was more or less what the people of the 1940s and 1950s thought things would be like in 2077.
