Are the developments on Fallout 3 essential for a complete understanding on the tale?
I ended up Fallout 3 and also was pleased with the tale and also the means it finished, am I missing out on something if I do not play the numerous developments that appeared after that?
Additionally, will certainly Fallout New Vegas be attached (storywise) to Fallout 3?
No to both inquiries. The just one which could come close is Broken Steel, which increases on the core tale a little bit. Nonetheless, it isn't essential for any kind of core understanding of the major story.
The various other benefit of Broken Steel is that it does (SPOILER ALERT) permit you to proceed playing after the last pursuit.
According to the Fallout Wiki, expertise of Fallout 3 is not required for Fallout : New Vegas, and also there are no story links, although like in previous video games, there will certainly be the periodic reference to the previous ones in the collection.
(I need to keep in mind that I've not played the initial 2, and also had no concerns with 3 and also its referrals to them, so I'm presuming any kind of referrals from New Vegas to previous ones will certainly be in a similar way refined. I do, nonetheless, intend on playing the initial 2!)
Ultimately, in regards to the DLC, I did acquisition, play and also appreciate every one of them. I was not extremely - delighted with Operation : Anchorage, yet I assumed the others were all incredibly well - done (also if Mothership Zeta had actually absolutely nothing to do with the Fallout cosmos). So normally your gas mileage might differ, yet it deserves keeping in mind that if you desire some wonderful added (and also various) tales, the add - ons are, to me, worth the loan. Broken Steel is the just one which really did not supply an entirely new setting : The others all supplied huge colonies to discover, with tales to select them.
Well I do not find out about every one of them yet I ended up Operation Anchorage, The Pitt and also Point search. There had not been much to include in the major tale. Broken Steel includes in the initial tale (It transforms the finishing) yet given that I've not played it, I can not give any kind of more details.
1 - Not actually. The only DLC that expands the major plot is Broken Steel which permits play after the initial video game ends and also proceeds the battle versus the Enclave. It additionally relocates the degree cap from 20 to 30.
2 - Fallout : New Vegas happens 3 years after Fallout 3. The tale is not connected to the occasions in Fallout 3.
