Star Wars Open Worlds aims to turn the Bethesda RPG into a full-blown space opera.
An ambitious modding team is trying to turn Fallout: New Vegas into a grand multi-planet space opera with total conversion mod Star Wars Open Worlds.
While currently unfinished and still in development, Star Wars Open Worlds surfaced with a new trailer earlier today, showcasing a shockingly vast range of locations, characters and scenarios. Ships flying above a Coruscant sky. Open war on Tatooine’s deserts. Imperial walkers stomping through alien jungles.
It’s all very impressive, if somewhat over-reliant on post-processing shaders. In typical Fallout fashion it’s not all bombastic action either—we see meetings in grimy underworlds and spit-shined Imperial starships.Mos EisleyAccording to the mod’s Itch page, Star Wars Open Worlds hopes to feature 12 planets to explore, multiple factions to join, NPC companions and will let you customise characters across various alien species, in a story that set during “the very early years of the galactic empire.”
Developers Karim Najib and Tank_Girl444 are setting some stratospheric expectations, and have no solid release window estimate to date. The Bethesda modding scene is also nothing if not familiar with overly ambitious mod projects—this could be something we’re following for a decade, if Disney doesn’t strike it down before then.
But exploring Star Wars from a Fallout perspective is one hell of a pitch. And if you’re interested in catching up on development so far, the modders occasionally post update videos over on YouTube.
20 years ago, Nat played Jet Set Radio Future for the first time—and she’s not stopped thinking about games since. Joining PC Gamer in 2020, she comes from three years of freelance reporting at Rock Paper Shotgun, Waypoint, VG247 and more. Embedded in the European indie scene and having herself developed critically acclaimed small games like Can Androids Pray, Nat is always looking for a new curiosity to scream about—whether it’s the next best indie darling, or simply someone modding a Scotmid into Black Mesa. She’s also played for a competitive Splatoon team, and unofficially appears in Apex Legends under the pseudonym Horizon.
