Fantasy Flight publishing Fallout: The Board Game


Isn't that S.P.E.C.I.A.L.?

Fantasy Flight Games has quite a few video-game-to-board-game adaptations under its belt at this point (there's Gears of War, XCOM, and DOOM, to name a few). It's about to add another one to its repertoire, and this one's a doozy.

Fallout: The Board Game is described as an adventure board game, allowing players to travel around the wasteland, ally with its various factions, and gain experience to build their characters up over time. It employs the series' signature S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system of skill division, though it doesn't look quite as deep as it is in the video games.

It's listed as playing one to four players, but it doesn't sound like a cooperative game. There's shaky alliances, but still ultimately one winner when playing with more than one.

Fallout: The Board Game is set to release during the fourth quarter of this year. Considering the timing on this announcement, there's a decent chance Gen Con attendees will be able to demo it later this month.
