Hello everypony! Novel Idea here with a very special update for you and some really cool new treats that we’ve been saving just for today.
First thing’s first though. I’m sorry to say that we will not be able to release Gardens of Equestria: This Coming Storm before the launch of Fallout 4.
As to why, let me start by saying the launch date annoucement of Fallout 4 caught us somewhat off-guard. We were expecting Q1 2016 or something similar. Suddenly we found ourselves in a time crunch. The Directors took a long look at the project and decided that we would split things apart. This was the beginning of GoE: This Coming Storm and GoE: Racing Apotheosis.
We didn’t want to focus everything on Fallout 4 as we already had an enormous amount of work already invested in the Fallout: New Vegas GoE experience. It was work that couldn’t transfer to Fallout 4.
Now we could have just taken everything we had, thrown some random enemies in there for you to shoot and just call it a day. But we promised you a story-driven experience and we wanted to honor that.
Now, a few weeks before the launch of Fallout 4, we wanted to show you what we’ve been working on for all these months.
So today, I’m very happy to reveal to you not one, but two Environment Preview Trailers! Set to the score of our in-house master of musics, Corvus, you’ll get to see a lot more than screenshots. We have a full ten minutes of previews of just some of the levels you’ll be exploring and fighting through in “This Coming Storm.”
But wait, there’s more! In Trailer 1, we’re covering the Appleloosa Valley Entrance, the Overlook, Topaz Lake, New Appleloosa and the Primm Basement. In Trailer 2, you’ll be seeing Stable 16 and the Rock Farm exterior along with the Rock Farm Sector 0 and Sector 1. Please note that all of these levels are works-in-progress so there are a few hiccups here and there.
While we’re not at a point when we can pin down an exact release date for you yet, we will let you know as soon as we have something.
We’re also always looking for more talent. If this looks like something you want to be a part of, head on over to our Recruitment Page and let us know!
Next week we’ll be getting up the next few chapters of the “Fallout: Equestria (The Manehattan Edition)” audiobook as well. We will also be releasing our fourth and final edit of the audiobook in the near future.
Until next week, stay safe out there!
