New Vegas Strip[]

The intro begins playing the song "Blue Moon" inside the casino of the Lucky 38 with a crooked portrait of the casino, the camera slowly rotating upright and moving away to reveal more of its surroundings. It proceeds to exit the casino, picking up pace as it tours the Strip while "Blue Moon" slowly becomes fainter amidst the background of the carousal about the street.

While on the Strip, we see the main hotels and a mixture of drunk NCR military members and civilians walk in the streets. Three Securitrons startle a pedestrian as they roll towards the Ultra-Luxe. The camera zooms out further to the perimeter of the auroral city to an NCR Veteran Ranger firing a lethal shot from their anti-materiel rifle at an armed Fiend just beyond the confines of New Vegas.

The camera fades out in flames to a distant hillside. A scout uses his binoculars to observe the city of New Vegas and outer Vegas, while explosions faintly ring around the city. Beside him is a banner, bearing the mark of Caesar's Legion. Legionaries rush behind him as a Legion explorer waves them through. Once more, the camera resumes even further from the city distinguishable only by its glow amidst the dark, night air of the Mojave. The scene becomes Goodsprings Cemetery, presently active with a small group of Great Khans digging a shallow grave intended for the unconscious Courier, and a man in a checkered suit standing only feet away, lighting a cigarette. The opening narration begins.

Opening narration[]

Narrated by Ron Perlman.


Fallout: New Vegas intro (2)

War. War never changes.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (3)

When atomic fire consumed the earth, those who survived did so in great, underground vaults. When they opened, their inhabitants set out across ruins of the old world to build new societies, establish new villages, forming tribes.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (4)

As decades passed, what had been the American southwest united beneath the flag of the New California Republic, dedicated to old-world values of democracy and the rule of law.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (5)

As the Republic grew, so did its needs.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (6)

Scouts spread east, seeking territory and wealth, in the dry and merciless expanse of the Mojave Desert.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (7)

They returned with tales of a city untouched by the warheads that had scorched the rest of the world.

And a great wall spanning the Colorado River.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (9)

The NCR mobilized its army and sent it east to occupy the Hoover Dam, and restore it to working condition.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (10)

But across the Colorado, another society had arisen under a different flag. A vast army of slaves, forged from the conquest of 86 tribes: Caesar's Legion.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (11)

Four years have passed since the Republic held the Dam - just barely - against the Legion's onslaught.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (12)

The Legion did not retreat.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (13)

Across the river, it gathers strength. Campfires burned, training drums beat.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (14)

Through it all, the New Vegas Strip has stayed open for business under the control of its mysterious overseer, Mr. House.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (15)

And his army of rehabilitated Tribals and police robots.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (16)

You are a courier, hired by the Mojave Express, to deliver a package to the New Vegas Strip.

Fallout: New Vegas intro (17)

What seemed like a simple delivery job has taken a turn ...for the worse.

The Courier slowly regains consciousness. Benny addresses the Courier as his audience, where the following conversation takes place. Afterward, Benny executes the Courier with a gunshot to the head. The screen fades to black and a Bethesda Softworks Presents slide appears, followed by Obsidian Entertainment Production slide, and lastly, a slide reading Fallout: New Vegas. Then the player progresses to the first playable part of the game.

Benny scene[]

McMurphyYou got what you were after, so pay up.
BennyYou're crying in the rain, pally.
JessupGuess who's waking up over here?
BennyTime to cash out.
McMurphyWould you get it over with?
BennyMaybe Khans kill people without looking them in the face, but I ain't a fink, dig?
BennyYou've made your last delivery kid.
BennySorry you got twisted up in this scene.
BennyFrom where you're kneeling it must seem like an 18-carat run of bad luck.
Truth is... the game was rigged from the start.
