If you’re conflicted with a desire to enjoy Utah’s natural beauties this summer but also get some serious gaming in, fear not—a new Fallout expansion is set in Zion’s National Park.
Bethesda software has announced that on May 17 it will begin releasing expansion games to its wildly popular Fallout series. Fallout: New Vegas, the 2010 release is the latest iteration of Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG series where players traverse the wastelands of America and drive the storyline of the game based on choices made: alliances with mutants, good/bad deeds done, and quests accomplished or failed.
This innovative non-linear game play is now charting a course through the Utah’s Zion’s National park as the setting for Honest Hearts, the first New Vegas expansion pack to be released on May 17. Players in this game lead a caravan through Zion’s park only to be caught up in a skirmish between marauding tribal bands, a “New Canaanite missionary and the mysterious Burned Man” according to Bethesda’s press release.
A fun post-apocalyptic romp complete with arches, missionaries and a burned man? What more could Utah gamers ask for?
