Fallout: The Frontier is an in-development mod for Fallout: New Vegas that doesn’t just introduce new weather, weapons, quests and enemies, it takes the game to a space station.

We actually saw this mod around a year ago, and back then the big deal was that it featured winter snow and some serious expansion to what Bethesda’s creaky ol’ Gamebryo engine was capable of in terms of scripting and animation.
