Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
Welcome Back to New Vegas!
With the introduction of the Ultimate Edition, Bethesda Softworks offers you the chance to double-down and get the complete package of New Vegas fun. For the first time in one package, you can get all the Fallout: New Vegas content including the full suite of highly acclaimed add-on content: Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road. To sweeten the pot, you’ll be armed with the latest cache of unique weapons, ammo types and recipes from the most recent add-on packs: Courier’s Stash and Gun Runners Arsenal. Whether you’re a seasoned explorer of the Mojave or playing the game for the first time, you’ll find there are more friends and enemies to make, more consequences to your actions and more opportunities to live in glory or infamy throughout the Wasteland. The choices you make will be as crucial to your survival as ever.
Beyond the Wasteland:
The world of New Vegas is more expansive than ever. Each new distinct area presents a fresh set of branching-quests, remarkable personalities and more chances to play the Savior or the Pariah to the natives of New Vegas.
Shiny New Toys:
Each add-on pack increases the mountain of armaments already at your disposal. Whether you’re an in-your-face brawler or a long-range gunner, weapons such as the Two-Step Goodbye (unique ballistic fists) or Sleepytime (a handy 10mm Sub-Machinegun) will give that warmonger in you a chance to flex your ammo-filled muscles.
Room to Grow:
With each of the four main add-on packs, the maximum levelcap is increased by 5 levels, ultimately raising the ceiling to Level 50.
Lured into a trap masquerading as the Sierra Madre Casino, you are thrown into a high stakes game where you’ll have to work with three other lost souls if you want to survive.
An expedition into Utah’s Zion National Park goes horribly wrong and you become embroiled in a war between tribes and put into a conflict between a New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burning Man.
Old World Blues:
Transported to the Big MT research crater, you are enlisted by the Think Tank to save them from their own science experiments that have gone horribly out of control.
Ulysses, the original Courier Six, contacts you and promises to answer why he refused to deliver the Platinum Chip at the start of Fallout: New Vegas, but only if you make one last journey into the treacherous canyons of the Divide.

If you haven’t played Fallout New Vegas yet, or you have but haven’t touched the DLC for the game, then this is a must have for your Steam library.
Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition comes with all four official DLC packs (Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road), plus 2 other bits of DLC, namely Couriers Stash and Gun Runners Arsenal.
Dead Money and Old World Blues are the best DLCs, but for the sheer number of new guns to play with, Gun Runners Arsenal also has to be commended. There's nothing sweeter in my mind than getting the legendary M1 Garand into FNV!
Your level cap to 50, plus you will be given many new perks to choose from when levelling up.
There are previously closed off areas for you to explore, and many new weapons and items to play around with. Fallout New Vegas just got even better.
Despite being the ultimate version of the ultimate RPG, there are still problems. The game was always outdated graphically, so you will have to look into modding it to get the best experience, and luckily for you there's a very committed community out there for this game. Having said that though, the game's art direction does have a certain charm and style.
The game is also very buggy -- probably one of the buggiest I've ever played, but if you can get past it and forgive it for this, you're in for a treat.
One of the best things about FNV is the soundtrack. You'll be running through the wasteland, singing along to catchy old songs from the mid-20th century on your Pip-Boys radio, all the while hearing the not so subtle sounds of gunfire. That, and the other more atmospheric music composed by Mark Morgan which was ripped from Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 is here. Utterly inspiring stuff.
Better story than Fallout 3. Less compelling open world.heerox328 | Dec. 7, 2014 | See all heerox328's reviews »
Fallout New Vegas comes to you from Obsidian Entertainment, many of which were part of Black Isle Studios who created the original Fallout games.
It's the same award-winning BGS interpretation with Obsidian's own flare added to the formula. The game improves upon the other in terms of the main story and compelling characters and companions.
Where it falters is being plagued with bugs, a less interesting open world to explore, and less memorable stories. It's definitely worth picking up if you like Fallout 3 or just a good open world RPG. I'd recommend it to anybody.

Fallout: New Vegas is an action role-playing video game in the Fallout video game series.You're a courier in these troubled times with no defined background. Just a seemingly regular guy or gal, you're tasked with delivering a package to the New Vegas strip, but let's just say complications arise. Though the story provides pops of color and a few necessary minor twists to keep things interesting, it's predictable just the same. There are three possible endings to the main quest, and similar to Fallout 3 at launch, I is a really time well spent game, It has downloadable content too. So if you are into Fps\Rpg/roleplaying games this is for you

New Vegas refined what I loved about Fallout 3. The combat was overhauled and done right. The exploration works better because the environment is a bit more varied than the Capital Wasteland. The story gives you some pretty cool choices to make. There's a bit more humor here than in Fallout 3, humor that is reminiscent of the original Fallout games. It's bizarre and I loved every minute of it.
Ruined my life. 10/10 would recommend.MafuMafu | July 31, 2014 | See all MafuMafu's reviews »
I don't want to make this review a long one. First, this game was made by Obsidian. In my opinion, the freaking RPG gods nowadays. Second, is there anything better to blow ghouls brains away? Third, I had a half-dog half-robot pet and a ghoul friend. Great story, almost perfect gameplay and DLC's highly recommendable (Old World Blues, if you ask me, was the best one, by far). If you're still not convinced, remember that Nexus has hundreds of mods available for you to try and to extend and enhance your experience. It would be awesome to have Steam Workshop, still.
NOTE: This game is not like Skyrim. I mean, if you finish the main story, you finish the game and that's it. So, if you didn't do all you wanted to do before that, you'll regret it. That's the only flaw this game has. I like games that set me free and let me do whatever I want.
