Yet another pre-E3 game-tastic story for you today, with news that Fallout: New Vegas – the follow up to Bethesda Softworks’ award-winning and critically-acclaimed Fallout 3 – has been officially dated for an October 19 release in North America and October 22 across Europe.

The latest instalment in the post apocalyptic Fallout universe is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment, which most recently created espionage role-playing game Alpha Protocol, and sees Fallout 3’s ruined Washington D.C. replaced by the dusty climes of the Mojave Wasteland.

In terms of narrative, New Vegas places the player in the shoes of a seemingly ordinary courier who is mysteriously shot and left to die in the desert. However, when the player recovers, they embark upon exploration of the vast environment, looting items, modifying weaponry, and gradually falling into a bitter conflict between the New California Republic and the Caesar’s Legion slave traders.

Click below to take a look at the latest teaser trailer for Fallout: New Vegas, which promises to deliver more of the same first-person action that made Fallout 3 such a hit on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC – while also delivering a more wide-ranging experience than Bethesda’s existing DLC episodes.
