There's A 'Fallout' Board Game In The Works

Fallout 4 mods PS4

Fallout 4 is coming back in a big way this September with the release of Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition.

Fallout 4 won more than 200 Best Of awards when it hit in 2015. "Players range out across a modular, hex-based board that matches with one of several scenarios and settings - all of which are drawn from Bethesda's core Fallout games or their expansions". Instead, they are making a board game, a retro decision for a game series that comes with a quasi-retro sheen. "One to four players (solo play is an option) select one of five playable explorers, from a savvy Wastelander to a stout member of the Brotherhood of Steel". The victor is the player who accumulates the most influence around the wasteland, as measured by cards you receive for exploring the map and finishing quests.

Game of the Year Edition includes the fully updated original game along with all six add-ons: Nuka-World, Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop and Automatron. In fact, the company brought us a splendid board game based on Doom (another Bethesda property) just previous year. The game's premise basically has you trying to stay alive as you explore the wastes, and you'll encounter factions along the way, which slowly expand across the map. Fantasy Flight is hoping to release its Fallout game this holiday season, which sounds like flawless timing, assuming we're not all living a real-life version by then.
