Project Brazil

Fallout - Project Brazil by Project Brazil Team

A fan-made modification made by Brandan Lee and several members of the Fallout Modding Community, and is an unofficial prequel to the action role-playing video game Fallout: New Vegas.

Project Brazil is set to release into two installments, with the first installment released as of May 31, 2013. There was a third installment that was to be released, however it was scrapped as of December 15, 2013. Project Brazil tells the story of your player character, an adopted resident of Vault 18, on the night of the last big Vault-Ball game of the season. The consequences of your player’s decision to dodge or tackle Johnny Matheson shapes the rest of their life, playing as an computer Nerd or a popular Athlete.

When the war finally reaches the Vault after one prominent figure turns out to be a member of the Enclave, a civil war erupts overnight, forcing the player to pick a side and escape into the wasteland with their rag-tag party of Robots and Friends.Set in 2260, the main three factions in San Bernardino have been involved in factional fencing matches for the last 20 years following the NCR-Enclave War, and the Vault 13 Dweller’s defeat of the Master 100 years earlier. The Survivalists are the last hold-outs in the California territory, refusing to be absorbed into the massive federal government they see as a threat to their isolated independence and military dictatorship. Cobbled together out of the remains of the various hostile tribes destroyed by the NCR, Boss Harders, their leader, holds a tight regimental order over his confederation. The Super Mutant Army, under their new leader, Papa Bug Bear, has vanished into the mist of the San Bernardino mountains, unheard from for decades. Their scouting parties have recently been seen raiding the grasslands with powerful robot escorts, as if they were hunting for someone. The New California Republic moved into the Cajon Pass in pursuit of Brotherhood of Steel convicts several years ago, capturing the Survivalist’s crop producing lands in Union City. Hoping to use I-15 to expand their power towards Nevada, they must first secure their war ravaged boarders or face economic collapse.

Your player character stumbles into this conflict after narrowly escaping Vault 18’s destruction. From there, they must find a way to survive in the aftermath when all 3 factions, each with a history of dealing with Vault 18’s Wasteland Scouts, seek out the player in order to use their knowledge, capture a lost experiment, or exact revenge for past crimes.

Reviews for the mod have been very positive. The official Obsidian Entertainment (developer of New Vegas), and the official Fallout Facebook both praised the mod and recommended it to New Vegas players. It was praised mostly for its "Out of the box" compatibility, strong storyline, professional voice overs, and content. It was 9th on Mod DB's Top Mods of 2013 list.
