Fallout dev teases new RPG

Obsidian Entertainment reveals mysterious role-playing game "Project X"; number 4, dragon image shown in logo.

A new role-playing game is brewing at Obsidian Entertainment, makers of Fallout: New Vegas and the upcoming South Park: The Stick of Truth. The developer's website has been updated with a new teaser page that reveals "Project X."

Obsidian has a new RPG in the works.

An image (at right) with the number 4 inside an ouroboros symbol is shown on the page, with text below reading: "What do the words mean?" and "Nothing. The Dirge of Eir Glanfath is found without form, a lone voice crying out in mourning because it must."

Additionally, the page's source code reveals an additional line of text that reads: "To tenderness, fellowship. To fellowship, vigilance. So bring we all to the Night Market. I am the Spindle of Esenath. Know me by my light and stand with me in darkness."

In addition to South Park: The Stick of Truth, Obsidian Entertainment is also working on a game based on Robert Jordan's fantasy novel series The Wheel of Time. This project was announced in 2010 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

I've read the Wheel of Time several times now (it's long enough that I find I need a refresher when a new book comes out... it's like 13-14 books now) and the only thing that could link it to those pictures is the serpent eating it's own tail (the ring of the Aes Sedai).  Seeker... eh... maybe.. but it's not something that jumps out at you like the Aes Sedai Ring.  As for the 4.... the "Wheel of Time" series takes place in the 3rd Age..... it could be a... Oh wait, just read that it's a countdown timer.  Unless there is more info out there that I'm unaware of, the Uroboros Ring STRONGLY leans me towards Wheel of Time but all the quotes make me think otherwise (or, at least, that it's not in the same time period or land-masses that encompass the Wheel of Time series). 

I love the Wheel of Time but I'm not sure any game developer could live up to the standards set by that series.  It is probably my favorite series (up there with the Alternate History WWI and WWII series written by Turtledove) and, just like if they made a movie, I'm thinking it just couldn't be as good as the books.

No doubt now, it is definitely Wheel of Time, latest clue had the key word Watcher in it.

Perhaps they're teaming up with Bethesda to help develop ESO? I mean a dragon? Come on...

 

Doubtful, but, hey...why not?

I'm hoping it's not a sequel to anything... Obsidian have a habit of taking a good game and making a so-so sequel.

 

KOTOR... Yes they improved the game-play a little with better use of the icons for using grenades, armour and stims... sure they did a better job of interacted with followers such as having them react more to your actions... but the story was incomplete and the ending terrible.

 

Fallout: New Vegas... Some improvements to game-play, companion interaction and weapon modding... but the endings were poor.

 

I'm a huge fan of their work (had South Park pre-ordered since March) but they just flat out suck at following on from someone else's games.

Since the 4 has changed to 3..I'm gonna assume it's a countdown to something..

Oh, I sure hope it is a new franchise.  We need more original titles.

Alright, now that the 4 has changed to 3 and the Fallout and Dungeon Siege theories look less likely I just hope it doesn't turn out to be another MMO game.

One thing I didn't think about is a new Dragonriders game, the original Riders of Pern was actually a pretty damn good game.

What kind of RPG? A Dragon Age style RPG, or a Fallout style RPG?

The 4 and 3 are just part of a countdown. The quotes both talk about some kind of book. The ouroboros means eternity. Therefore, this is a RPG of The Never Ending Story. (◕ڡ<)b

Pretty sure bethesda is taking the dev reigns for F4 (wouldnt have it any other way personally) and the text associated with this teaser image is obviously fantasy-themed so i highly hihgly doubt its F4. Most likely dungeon siege 4.

You guys may wanna take another look at that teaser page. It's a COUNTDOWN.

Um...Dungeon Siege 4? The only thing anyone will let them touch (except Parker & Stone with Southpark, but they don't know any better).

 @TTDog a KOTOR 3 with 2012 tech would be interesting.

 @evil-zodiark@cdog5386  @edinko @buccomatic Thank you all for your responses. I will most likely not be getting the game. That will give me some time to play other games, and that's O.K. with me. You guys have been very helpful.

 @tightwad34 It was pretty bad actually.  It was hardly even an RPG anymore.  Barely any skill progression and a serious lack of loot.  Pretty much nonsense.

 @tightwad34

 @edgewalker16 Yea, a portal between the two opens and nobody stops it from expanding and the two worlds combine..Then you go around the capital wasteland and shoot dragons with laser pistols and later encounter mutants in Whiterun and you kill them with some kind of Destruction spell. Awesome!

 @SythisTaru Fallout 4 is has been rumored to be in Boston. But Fallout set in China would be sweet.

 @bicelis I like where your head's at, but we wouldn't be roaming Washington D.C. again.  I was thinking somewhere more along the lines of Camden, New Jersey.

 @codeman101360  @VaporPigPoop That's just the kind of hard-hitting insightful exposition one can expect from such a respected name in journalism as VaporPigPoop.
