Multiplayer is made possible thanks to the NV:MP (New Vegas Multiplayer) mod. This guide covers everything you need to know about the Fallout New Vegas multiplayer mod, including how it works, how to install, max players, and more.

What is NV:MP? Fallout New Vegas multiplayer mod, explained

NV:MP for Fallout New Vegas offers the player base a unique experience compared to the base game. It allows multiple players, such as friends or strangers, to join a server together to explore the world of New Vegas and finish quests, fight enemies, and enjoy the beloved game as a social experience. The coolest feature of the mod is that it allows players to create or join a faction with friends, and face off against other factions to gain land and territory.

What is the max player count for NV:MP?

The NV:MP mod for Fallout New Vegas has a max player count of 128. Keep in mind that this doesn’t necessarily mean there will always be this many players on your server.

There will be times when you may only have around 20 to 30 players on the server, and considering Fallout New Vegas is an old game, this will likely happen more often than you’d like. Then again, with the new Fallout show on Amazon, I’d guess the number of players on NV:MP will increase.

Installing the NV:MP mod can take a while depending on your situation. Luckily, the creators behind the mod have laid out all the necessary steps and requirements you need to meet to get the multiplayer mod up and running. Head over to the official website of NV:MP and then select “Install NV:MP.” Doing so will bring you to a page that walks you through the entire process of installing NV:MP.

Just a heads up, there are a lot of steps. I highly recommend taking your time as you read through the site, as it not only explains the installation process but also covers things you should avoid and things to note.

Does NV:MP still get updates?

The Fallout New Vegas multiplayer mod is very much alive, and the project’s developers are still hard at work to improve the experience. To see for yourself and stay up to date with important information for NV:MP, head over to the official Discord and accept the invite. The Discord is a great way to find other players to squad up with and learn about upcoming events.

That’s all you need to know about the Fallout New Vegas multiplayer mod. NV:MP is a great way to make an old game feel fresh, creating a new experience that you can enjoy with a group of friends. Speaking of friends, I bet yours are nonstop talking about the new Fallout show. Tell them about our guide on how to create Lucy from the show in the games!
