“Krieg, Krieg ist immer gleich.
Fallout ist eine Reihe von Computer-Rollenspielen, ursprünglich produziert und veröffentlicht von Interplay. Obwohl in und nach dem 22. Jahrhundert gesetzt, sind seine Geschichte und Kunstwerke stark von der Zeit der nuklearen Paranoia des 2. Weltkriegs der 1950er Jahre beeinflusst. Die Reihe ist leicht basierend auf der Mad Max-Film-Reihe. Die Reihe wird manchmal als eine inoffizielle Fortsetzung zu Wasteland betrachtet, aber es konnte diesen Titel nicht nutzen, weil Electronic Arts die Rechte daran hielt. Insbesondere Brian Fargo, einer der ursprünglichen Entwickler von Wasteland, ist in den Intros von Fallout, Fallout 2 und Fallout Tactics angemerkt, mit dem Titel "Brian Fargo präsentiert", obwohl er eigentlich an keinem der Spiele arbeitete. Obwohl die Fallout-Reihe viele Verweisungen auf Gegenstände, Personen und in Wasteland gefundene Drehbücher enthält, werden die Spiele in getrennten Universen gesetzt und sind voneinander verschieden.
Es gibt vier vollständige Rollenspiel-Titel in der Reihe (Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 und Fallout: New Vegas), ein Team-basierter taktischer RPG-Kampf-Ableger (Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel) und ein Action-Rollenspiel Dungeon-Crawler Ableger für PlayStation 2 und Xbox (Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel). Es gab auch ein Online-MMORPG, Project V13, dass bei Interplay entwickelt wurde. Doch nach Rechtsstreitigkeiten, entfernte Bethesda die Rechte die Interplay daran besaß und die Spielproduktion ist komplett zum Stillstand kommen.
Die Hintergrundgeschichte von Fallout beinhaltet ein "Was-wäre-wenn"-Szenario, in dem die Vereinigten Staaten versuchten, mit Fusionskraftwerken Energie zu gewinnen, was im ganzen Land zur Vorherrschaft führen würde und um eine geringere Abhängigkeit von Erdöl zu entwickeln. Dies ist jedoch erst 2077 erreicht worden, kurz nach einem Konflikt entstanden durch Ölbohrungen vor der Pazifikküste der Vereinigten Staaten gegen China. Es endet mit einer nuklearen Aubreitung in der post-apokalyptischen Welt, in der das Spiel stattfindet. Es ist in Fallout 2 betont, dass niemand wusste, wer die erste Rakete zündete.
Veröffentlichte Spiele Bearbeiten
Fallout RPGs Bearbeiten
The original two games were developed by Interplay's RPG division (named Black Isle Studios during the development of Fallout 2) and published by Interplay between 1997 and 1998.
In 2004, Bethesda Softworks licensed the rights to develop three Fallout games from Interplay. In 2007, they acquired the Fallout franchise entirely. In 2008, Bethesda released Fallout 3.
Released in 1997 for the PC and Mac, Fallout is the spiritual successor to the 1988 hit Wasteland. The protagonist of the game is tasked with recovering a water chip to replace the chip that broke in his home, Vault 13. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic southern California, beginning in the year 2161. It was originally intended to run under the GURPS role-playing game system, but a disagreement with Steve Jackson, creator of GURPS, over the game's violent content required the development of a new system, the SPECIAL System. Fallout's atmosphere and artwork are reminiscent of post-WWII America and the nuclear paranoia that was widespread at that time. Some key people who worked on Fallout later left Interplay and formed Troika Games.
Fallout 2 Bearbeiten
Fallout 2 was released in 1998 for the PC and in 2002 for Mac, using a slightly-modified form of the engine used in the original Fallout. Taking place in 2241, 80 years after the original game, Fallout 2 centers around a descendant of the Vault Dweller, the protagonist of Fallout. The player assumes the role of the Chosen One as he tries to save Arroyo, his village, after several years of drought. The game featured several improvements over the first game, including the ability to set attitudes of non-player character party members and the ability to push people who are blocking doors. However, it also included several questionable changes to the game world, including significantly more pop culture jokes and parodies.
Fallout 3 Bearbeiten
Fallout 3 is a post-apocalyptic computer and console role-playing game developed and published by Bethesda Softworks as a sequel to Interplay's Fallout and Fallout 2. It was released on October 28, 2008 in North America and was released on October 31, 2008 in Europe for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The game takes place in the year 2277 on the East Coast of what used to be the United States, mostly in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia and is not a direct continuation of the previous games' story. The gameplay features include real-time combat and first or third person perspective, in contrast to the previous games, which were turn-based and isometric.
Fallout: New Vegas Bearbeiten
Fallout: New Vegas is a Fallout game based on Fallout 3 engine, developed by Obsidian Entertainment which was announced by Bethesda. Fallout: New Vegas was released on October 19, 2010 in North America for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas in the year 2281, four years after Fallout 3. Your character is dug out of a shallow grave by a robot after being shot in the head. The game's plot centers around finding the main character's supposed assassin, and a three-way war between NCR, Caesar's Legion, and the citizens of New Vegas over Hoover Dam.
Fallout Ableger Bearbeiten
Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel Bearbeiten
Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is a tactical combat game developed for the PC by Micro Forté and published by Interplay in early 2001 to mixed reviews. Although it was given high scores by reviewers (PC Gamer gave it an 85%), many fans were disappointed by the game. Fallout Tactics focuses on tactical combat rather than role-playing; the new combat system included different modes, stances, and modifiers, but the player had no dialogue options. Most of the criticisms of the game came from its incompatibility with the story of the original two games, not from its gameplay. It's important events are considered canon by new owner Bethesda Softworks, while everything else was deemed semi-canon. Tactics is the first Fallout game to not require the player to fight in a turn-based mode, and it is also the first to allow the player to customize the skills, perks, and combat actions of the rest of the party. Fallout Tactics includes a multi-player mode that allows players to compete against squads of other characters controlled by other players. Unlike the previous two games, which are based in California, Fallout Tactics takes place in the Midwest.
Fallout: Warfare Bearbeiten
Fallout: Warfare is a tabletop wargame based on the Fallout Tactics storyline, using a simplified version of the SPECIAL system. The rulebook was written by Chris Taylor, and was available on the Fallout Tactics bonus CD, together with cut-out miniatures. Fallout: Warfare features five distinct factions, vehicles, four game types, and thirty-three different units. The rules only require ten-sided dice. The modifications to the SPECIAL system allow every unit a unique set of stats and give special units certain skills they can use, including piloting, doctor, and repair. A section of the Fallout: Warfare manual allows campaigns to be conducted using the Warfare rules. The game is currently available for free online from the fansite No Mutants Allowed and several other sources.
Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Bearbeiten
Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel became the first Fallout game for consoles (PlayStation 2 and Xbox) when it was released in 2004. It follows an initiate in the Brotherhood of Steel who is given a suicidal quest to find several lost Brotherhood paladins. An action role-playing game, BoS is a significant break from the previous incarnations of the Fallout series, in both gameplay and style. BoS takes place in three locations: The towns of Carbon and Los and a Secret Vault. BoS also does not feature non-player characters who would accompany the player in combat. BoS is not considered to be canon due to its stark contrasts and outright contradictions with the storyline of Fallout, Fallout 2, as well as Fallout Tactics in any way. BoS is the last Fallout game to be developed by Interplay. The game also features music from nu-metal bands, including Slipknot and Killswitch Engage, which stands in contrast to the music of the main Fallout series, performed by The Ink Spots and Louis Armstrong.
