Fallout: Louisville, or “Night of the Living Ghouls” is a free total world mod for Fallout: New Vegas.  The game takes place in Louisville, KY, with a plot that revolves around various real-life locations.  Essentially, the city of Louisville has been flooded by the excessive radiation in the water flowing down the Ohio River, which caused the vast majority of survivors to become feral ghouls (the equivalent of zombies in the Fallout world).  It is roughly around the size of Point Lookout, if not bigger, with a comparable amount of content.  It will be more exploration driven than story driven, with a central goal/quest of simply surviving in an environment that should be challenging even to veteran Fallout players, though there are a number of side quests.  The game is designed to pay tribute to the Louisville’s unique and expansive “zombie culture”.  Louisville’s “zombie culture” includes the annual zombie attack walk, the setting of the Return of the Living Dead series, “zombie prom”, and the hometown of Robert Kirkman (writer of The Walking Dead  and Marvel Zombies).
