United Developers subsidiary
today announced plans to bring Fallout 2 to the Macintosh. Amazingly, the game is already in final testing and the publisher plans to have limited quantities on hand for sale at its booth at Macworld Expo New York later this month.
The original Fallout, a post-apocalyptic role-playing adventure game, is now part of MacPlay’s Value Series, a line of 15 titles expected to debut in retail stores this month for US$20 or less. That previous game was released for the Mac by MacPlay’s previous incarnation as a subsidiary of Interplay — Fallout has since been resurrected specifically for Mac OS X by the new MacPlay and their development partner The Omni Group.
“In the continuation of the story, it has been 80 long years since your ancestors trod across the wastelands. As you search for the Garden of Eden Creation Kit, to save your primitive village, your path is strewn with crippling radiation, megalomaniac mutants and a relentless stream of lies, deceit and treachery. As you master your character’s skills and traits for survival, Fallout 2 will challenge you to endure in a post-nuclear world whose future withers with every passing moment,” said MacPlay.
Fallout 2 will be available for Mac OS X only at retail stores for US$29.99 later this month. You’ll be able to get the game first — in limited quantities — at Macworld Expo in New York, this July 17 – 19. Fallout 2’s official release date is July 31, 2002.
