The Frontier’s popularity is self-evident from the fact that NexusMods crashed within minutes of its release. The site is finally functional now; however, the webpage for The Frontier still displays no content.

Players who had somehow installed the mod have reported game-breaking bugs and glitches. Hence, it is recommended to wait for the mod’s release on Steam which will happen next week.

Here’s a post on r/FalloutTheFrontier that talks about the aforementioned issues:

How The Frontier completely changes Fallout: New Vegas

The Frontier is a snowy open world that outright matches the size of Capital Wasteland. It contains real-life landmarks and locations from Portland, Oregon. Alongside exploring this unknown world, players can battle against a variety of enemies they’ve never witnessed before.

It won’t be an exaggeration to say that The Frontier mod is a new game in itself. With over 150 new weapons, hundreds of new armors, and a new vehicle system, Fallout: New Vegas will now feel fresher than ever.

The mod also features three major quests that follow the NCR, the Legion, and the Crusaders of Steel. To further enhance the experience, there are several side quests with equally mind-boggling stories.

There are over 24,000 lines of new dialogue that the Frontier brings to the table. To make sure that the voice-acting in the mod remains top-notch, the developers have only cast trusted voice actors and some celebrity guests.

Last, but not least, the mod comes with brilliant FX. It is performance-friendly and based on techniques that are used in modern VFX.

Installing Fallout: The Frontier requires the base variant of Fallout: New Vegas and the four official DLCs that have released over the years.
