The size and scope of Fallout Project Brazil continues to impress, and even though the mod won't beat Fallout 4 to release it's rewarding to see that the team aren't willing to compromise on their vision.
In case you've forgotten, Fallout Project Brazil is the Fallout: New Vegas mod of the year. It's so gargantuan in its ambition that one of the developers took a sabbatical from his day job with the hope of getting Project Brazil out before Fallout 4 landed.
That's not going to happen, although the team claims on their official Facebook page that they'll be done very shortly after Bethesda hits store shelves. That hasn't led to a mass culling of features or content though, with the developers revealing that 44 voice actors and actresses have contributed to the fan-driven project.
"I want to thank my voice actors — you guys really came through for us over the last month. Some of you traveled a thousand miles or more to sit on a creaky futon in a tiny room at the centre of a house to record for 5 or 6 straight hours to make my mod come to life," they wrote.
The current estimate for Project Brazil's release is sitting on between four and five weeks, although that's largely dependent on the team maintaining their levels of productivity.
It's a shame people won't get a taste of Project Brazil before Fallout 4 lands, but it might be a fantastic route into full-time development for the people involved. It's an immense, immense effort. Making games — or mods — isn't easy.
