There will be new perks in Fallout: New Vegas but a lot of the old perks will make a return exactly the same as before or with slight modifications. This is done to counter how easy it was to max out the player’s skills in Fallout 3, most of the skill-boosting perks from Fallout 3 have been removed and replaced. Unlike in Fallout 3 you now gain perks every two levels. There are 88 regular perks, 8 companion perks and other unknown amount of quest perks.
Question: Have there been any graphical updates to the game engine?
Answer: Fallout 3’s engine was the natural choice for us, given the timeline we had and what we wanted to accomplish with the game. While we haven’t made direct changes to the engine to support enhanced graphics, we worked on the texture resolutions and made performance tweaks.
My Opinion: So it will basically look the same but sharper and smoother, less bugs. Seems like a repackaging of the old game to make cash from the success of Fallout 3.
