A fan of Fallout: New Vegas managed to recreate its Nipton location in the map editor of Far Cry 5, and gamers are impressed by the accuracy. Far Cry 5 and Fallout: New Vegas are both older games, with the former releasing in 2018 and the latter all the way back in 2010. Still, both titles remain classics that continue to draw players back in and generate interesting conversations after all these years.
Indeed, both games have quite a lot in common. While New Vegas is an action RPG and Far Cry 5 is more of a shooter, both feature massive open worlds, lots of combat, and plenty of dark themes. Both titles are even some of the best open-world games set in North America, with Far Cry 5 taking place in Montana and New Vegas, of course, set in a post-apocalyptic Nevada. Now, one fan of both games has found a way to blend them with incredible results.

On Reddit, a user going by mojoswoptops2020 has shared images of the Far Cry 5 map they created based on the town of Nipton in Fallout: New Vegas. Gamers who played Obsidian Entertainment’s action RPG will remember Nipton as a town that has been destroyed by Caesar’s Legion that can be discovered early in a playthrough. The location serves to introduce the brutality of this faction as players learn how the Legion invaded the town and proceeded to torture and execute all but two inhabitants. Nipton looks truly terrifying when it’s discovered in the game and mojoswoptops2020 recreates that with great care.

Fans of the fifth entry in Ubisoft’s shooter series have long known the potential of its map-editing feature and continue to make excellent use of it. Recently, for example, this same Far Cry 5 player built incredible maps inspired by Far Cry 2 that had gamers excited. Others have already figured out how to use the editor to honor other games, as well.
Just last month, a Far Cry 5 player combined Skyrim style and a Call of Duty map for another editor creation. While many of these fan-generated maps have been impressive environments and superb recreations of other titles’ aesthetics, few have managed to capture such a grim and spooky vibe as this representation of the town of Nipton.
Fallout: New Vegas is an old game, but it still holds a special place in the hearts of many players. There is still a passionate community that likes to replay and discuss the title and even bring its lore and setting into other games. This passion is a big part of why some argue that Fallout: New Vegas deserves a remake soon. Far Cry 5 fans, especially those that like a bit of terror with their experience, and especially those that are also fans of Fallout, will definitely want to take a look at this map that reminds players why New Vegas was so great.
