Happy Thursday everypony!

 

This here is Novel Idea, bringing you our weekly/biweekly update on the development of Gardens of Equestria: This Coming Storm, our story-driven DLC for Fallout: New Vegas. With over 80,000 words of fully-voiced dialogue, 70+ new levels, an entire new worldspace, custom music, 4 new companions, unique weapons and armor and much, much more, we've got a lot on our plate! Since FiG.com is the headquarters of all things gaming in the MLP fandom, it's only fitting that we show ourselves here! We may have in the past, but we had let this particular avenue of conversation drop off. Well, that's changed as of now!

 

There's probably a lot of you that have already heard of us. We've been around for about a year and a half now, diligently working to create a whole new reality for you to experience in Gardens of Equestria and working toward our Fallout 4 sequel as well. If you haven't heard of us before, take a moment to check out our Teaser Trailer released in May of 2015 and our Environment Preview trailers we released last November.

 

Now, onto today's post!

 

You know the annoying thing about working on the Gateway Research Facility? I've got all this totally awesome stuff I can't show you! While you may think this is me just teasing you, it's honestly frustrating! I'm really proud of the design of this place, but since it's the grand finale of This Coming Storm...I just can't reveal it until launch. It would be like revealing the end of any big video game. After all...

Gah. Extremely frustrating. The consequence, of course, is that I don't have a lot to show you at present, at least in the way of new stuff. Other surprises are in the works, but I want a day-one reveal of it, meaning you can experience those surprises the moment we announce them.

 

We do way too much behind the scenes. Grrrrr...

 

So instead, I'm unlocking a part of Stable 207 you haven't seen before!

 

Stable 207 is (currently) divided into several different sections. There's Auxiliary Support A, Auxiliary Support B, Main Level, the Living Quarters, the Com Tower and the Com Tower Exterior. You've all seen the Main Level (it's very close to what we first revealed in our Teaser Trailer and two weeks ago we gave you a little sneak peak at the Living Quarters.

Today, you get to see something different.

 

The Com Tower.

 

Quote

 

The Communications Tower of Stable 207 is built directly into the mountainside with an enormous platform jutting from the rock under the shadow of Stable 207's powerful satellite arrays. A massive column of arcano-tech conduits and spark generators dominates the center space of this advanced section of the facility. Ringed by numerous catwalks, utility access corridors and storerooms, the communications tower of Stable 207 rivals the complexity and capability of the MAS Emergency Broadcast System hub in Tenpony Tower. It is from here that DJ-PON3 tweaks and adjusts the signals from his sources across the Wasteland, giving tips and saving lives as far as his voice can reach.

 

 

 

For those of you who remember, there's a unique level within the Fallout 3 DLC Broken Steel. It's your first mission--where you see the fate of Liberty Prime--and you take out an Enclave bunker. This chaotic encounter was one of the few places in Fallout where you had vertical-based combat in a tower structure (and you also did it with a team of Knights) However, even that was only four stories high.

 

The Com Tower is twelve stories high. And it's all visible and accessible from the start.

 

What's worse...your enemy has the high ground. That's right, you'll be fighting up the massive superstructure of the Com Tower.

 

You'll be racing against time to stop the nefarious invader's plan for Stable 207 that would silence DJ-PON3 forever...and cost you and your friends your lives. You'll fight through hijacked security systems, hardened shock troopers, lethal tech analysts and much, much more. And at the top of Stable 207, you'll be dealing with the deadly Lieutenant Colonel Windfury. And he's not alone.

 

Because he called in air support to help take you down.

 

Now, I don't want to spam you all with a bunch of screenshots right here on FiG.com, so instead, I'll just link you the main article. If you want to see the screenshots of the new level, head on over to gardensofequestria.com.

 

That's all for this week folks! We'll see you soon!
