Fallout 'All Roads' Comic Set Before New Vegas

The recently announced Fallout comic which will come bundled with all special editions of New Vegas is going to act as a prequel to the main game. We already know that the start of Fallout: New Vegas sees the player getting shot in the head and getting his package stolen–the comic follows the two people who hunt you down. You will not only get a glimpse at your adversaries, but also learn about important people in the game before you get to meet them.

“The title showcases the cast, locations in the game (including New Vegas), and provides more backstory on some of the major characters in the game. It leads right up to the opening movie of the game, and provides context for the initial set-up and the motivations for some of the major adversaries in the game” says Avellone, senior designer for New Vegas and author of All Roads.

“If you read the graphic novel, you’ll see the results of many of the events, locations, and fates of the characters in the comic in primary and secondary locations in the game – as well as characters you’ll encounter in these locations. You’ll have a glimpse of their motivations and struggles before you meet them, and it’ll give larger context to their actions and how to deal with them. If you’re careful in your exploration, you’ll even find some items they left behind as well – whether the characters are alive or dead.”

Fallout New Vegas is set to release on October 19th.
