Despite some recent legal issues facing the Fallout 4 modding community, one team that’s trying to recreate New Vegas inside of Fallout 4 is pushing forwards—and will soon start recruiting voice actors.

The mod, dubbed Fallout 4 New Vegas by its creators, aims to recreate the entirety of New Vegas in the Creation Engine 2.0, the same engine that powers Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. Originally, the mod team intended to use original audio from Fallout: New Vegas to make the mod as close to the original as possible.

Recently, however, legal complications forced a Fallout 3 remake, Fallout 4: The Capital Wasteland, to shut down. Fallout 4 New Vegas would likely face a similar fate due to its reliance on the same method to “extract and port the audio” from the original games, something which the mod creators state is “not allowed” by Bethesda.

“[The Fallout 4 New Vegas mod’s] development will go on,” the mod creators wrote in a blog post. “However, changes in our development plans will be needed for us to accomplish our goal of a fully realized remake of Fallout: New Vegas.”

Some of these changes including starting up a new Voice Acting department for the mod, something which the team had initially decided was “far too much work, for far too little reward.” With the new restrictions on audio, however, original voice acting will be key to keeping the mod from being shut down.

As a result, the team will be opening up spots for voice over applicants “in the immediate future.” The Voice Acting Team will work in parallel to the rest of the mod’s development, with voice acting work being added to the mod as it is completed.

If you want to add your voice to a remake of Fallout: New Vegas, then keep an eye on the mod’s organizational website. More details about the project can be found there as well. The mod is currently in development for PC.
