For The Enclave

Critically acclaimed mod for Fallout: New Vegas containing over 5 hours of new quests, voice-acted characters and exciting scripted events.

After the numerous defeats across all remaining fronts, the Enclave has fractured into their own splinter groups, with their own ideologies. Two factions are about to go head to head in the Mojave Wasteland, and General Jamison is turning to the Courier for help. Will they join the Enclave, or leave them to their fate?

Mod synopsis

For The Enclave was a mod project created prior to my formal education as a Game Designer for the game Fallout: New Vegas, bornĀ out of my passion to create new experiences for players. Developed as a hobby project over 3 years, after release it was covered on various gaming news sites such as PC Gamer and has been downloaded over 150,000 times.

In the mod, the player is recruited by the remnants of a faction from Fallout 2 – The Enclave, to save them from the brink of destruction and spearhead the reformation of their faction, all while defending against an autocratic, openly hostile faction.

Taking the player to various new handcrafted locations where they would experience dramatic scripted sequences and twists in the narrative, the experience of this project pushed my design and technical skills to new heights.
