The Interplay/Bethesda Fallout legal battle
is one mired in as much speculation as it is in fact, although we do know that Interplay has been attempting to get a Fallout
MMO project off the ground for some time now
. Code-named V13, Fallout Online
is currently Interplay's baby, although we haven't seen a clear go-ahead due to the legal struggle over the rights.
It was a bit of a surprise, then, to see a teaser website for Fallout Online
launch with little fanfare. Currently, there isn't much there, just a brief glimpse at a workshop desk with various Fallout
references to the Master, Brahmin, and Nuka-Cola before a form obscures the screen. You then can sign up for their mailing list, as well as a beta opt-in. Following that, you are unceremoniously sent to the Interplay forums
It looks legit, too: Interplay is promoting Fallout Online from their main website
, and the new teaser site is indeed registered to Interplay Entertainment Corp. Seeing as how Fallout
fans are incredibly passionate about this franchise, even a hint that this MMO is progressing toward launch should come as a jolt of radioactive bliss. Check out the website
and let us know what you think!
