    Duh, I'm translating the news bits the devs publish on the VK page. To keep you guys updated.

    Any new word on this project, given we're nearly at the end of September? Is the 30th still the expected release date for the Russian version?

    I doubt it will be released this year, Fallout modding is slow and tedious. If they do I'll be just as happy as the next man wanting to play this.

    Last couple of end-game maps in Nevada are empty, poorly thought out and shamefully linear in sharp contrast with rest of the mod. No rushing this time please!

    Nobody's Nail Machine really nailed Mark Morgan's Fallout soundtrack feel, I really loved his job on Fallout Nevada.

    We'll probably have to wait even longer since the game needs to be translated. :)

    This doesn't make much sense especially in the Boneyard area because of 2 reasons.
    1. The Fallout US was much more paranoid, militant, and closed-off than it's IRL counterpart from the 50's, making them less immigrant friendly, also there was a U.S. invasion against Mexico.
    2. During the Great War, 90%ish percent of the population died. That means minorities became even more minor than they were before, if they survived at all.

    Does anybody know if Sonora will have companions? Playing Nevada was really tedious at times, only in the late game you could get a better weapon than AK-112. I agree with valcik, they should take their time and really polish the game before release. I also hope that they don't aim for the ''russian and hardcore mod'' feel...

    There was a AK-112 in Fallout Nevada ? - never found it, used the hunting rifle for 2/3rds of the game, then the sniper rifle from Vegas onwards.

    Yes, you can farm them from random encounters near Winds of War (middle of the map). Two bandits will attack a soldier with AK. It's best to help him with bandits and then finish him. It's pretty stupid but it works.
    Lack of weapons variety is one of the biggest Nevada flaws.

    @.Pixote.
    As far as I remember Fallout 1 and 2 *and* Tactics's description for the assault rifle says it's AK 112 model. so yeah Assault Rifle and AK 112 are basicaly the same thing, if You didn't knew...

    As for why there's so much Kalashnikovs in post '50 Sci-Fi future America,with them literally hating comunism?! Beats Me.. I have no Idea..

    Fallout Sonora logo in a classic style.

    Gotta say I love the logo.

    Also we are going to get the release date sometime today.

    "We will announce the release date during this Sunday."

    It's finished and could be released December 12!
    But the devs would like a bit more time to polish everything (add extra quests, polish videos etc).
    They proposed a second release date- next March. The release is left to vote by fans- currently it's something like 4:1 for the March release.
    They'll announce the results on Thursday.

    Either they are done and can release, or they aren't... what kind of question is that?
    And if they really want to push it out already, slap some alpha or beta sticker on it and call it a day.

    I'm torn--on one hand I would like Fallout: Sonora to come out after waiting for what seems like forever... I recall at one point they wanted to release on September 30.

    On the other hand, I want the completed game to be released; don't the developers consider Fallout: Nevada to be somewhat of a failure because of cut plans? I don't want the same to happen to Sonora. It could also affect people's first impressions if the first edition of the game is no good.

    I would rather wait for a complete game then make a person release a rushed product.
