Interplay has announced that Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is currently in development for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox. The game is set shortly after the events that transpired in the original Fallout for the PC, when humans are emerging from underground shelters after a nuclear holocaust. In their battle against mutant raiders and pirates, players will uncover a plot that involves plans to turn the remnants of humanity into a race of mutants with the use of a special device. One to two players will have access to a variety of weapons, including melee and range weapons as well as explosives.
"We're very excited about bringing the Fallout universe to console gamers," said Scot Lane, executive producer at Interplay. "The gameplay is more attuned to the console platform, stressing more action and combat than the PC versions, which placed a greater emphasis on RPG elements or strategy."
Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is scheduled for release this fall.
