Ausir of the Fallout 3 FAQ at The Vault and Fallout wikia fame, now has started a new FAQ on Fallout Online, the surprising new project of Interplay:
What is Fallout Online?
Fallout Online is a working title for a possible futuristic post-apocalyptic Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game set in the Fallout world, an alternate universe based on 50s sci-fi pulp fiction, as if the world had stopped in the optimistic 50s and found itself on a dystopian post-apocalyptic reality. It will be a spin-off of the Fallout series, which includes Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout 3.
Is Fallout Online the official title?
No. Since no title has been officially announced, the name Fallout Online (or FOOL) is used by Fallout fans to refer to the possible future Fallout MMO. The official title will be known after the game is announced.
Is Fallout Online really in development?
The game has not been announced yet, however, Interplay has licensed the rights to a Fallout MMORPG from Bethesda and hired Jason Anderson, one of the creators of Fallout, to work on an unannounced MMORPG project, and since Interplay is working on only one project, the project being Fallout Online is a pretty safe bet.
Ausir is tireless and relentless. Salute.
I don’t know where Brios is but I’m having way too much clicking category boxes. What was I posting? Oh yeah, there’s a new dev profile at the BethBlog. This week’s lucky victim? Christiane Meister.
What is the best part about working as an artist? The worst part?
My favorite part is designing how characters will look and work, down to the hairstyles, armor, and clothing. I generally liked to maintain a feel of culture — the objects that these people wore came from somewhere and were made by people of that particular place. I hope to carry that even further in the future. The worst part of the job is not quite succeeding at what you had envisioned, whether it is time, technology, or design constraints. But then art is never really finished — only abandoned.
Well that was exciting. Really.
[Edit by Briosafreak]Thanks Killzig. I already had some Q&A with Maverique before, since then she played Fallout. No more tomatoes in her direction.
