Fallout: New Vegas ships 5 million
Bethesda and Obsidian's post-nuclear RPG sequel hits milestone, generates "well over" $300 million in sales.
Though it was plagued by an array of bugs at launch, Fallout: New Vegas is now a bona fide hit. Today, the post-nuclear role-playing game's publisher, Bethesda Softworks, announced that the game has shipped 5 million units worldwide. The company did not offer exact sales figures, but it said that including a "heavy volume of digital downloads," the game has generated "well over $300 million in retail sales."
Today's announcement comes almost in tandem with Bethesda's revelation that a "comprehensive" set of bug fixes will soon arrive for all versions of Fallout: New Vegas. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the game uses an updated version of the same engine as the award-winning Fallout 3, which was released in 2008. That, in turn, was a modified version of the engine from 2006's The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Fallout: New Vegas is set in the Mojave wasteland and casts players in the role of a courier who is shot in the head and left for dead. After recovering, players roam the desert and the titular metropolis, exploring new areas and modifying weapons. They also get wrapped up in the larger conflict among the bureaucratic New California Republic, the slave-trading Caesar's Legion, and a mysterious New Vegas impresario named Mr. House.
