The History of the Fallout franchise

history of falloutUnless you’ve been living in a bomb shelter for the last year, you’ll know that Fallout 4 is almost upon us. As of November 10th, Vault dwellers the world over will be hibernating in front of their tvs and monitors, engrossing themselves in Bethesda’s latest RPG adventure.

LoneVaultWanderer compiled a history of the Fallout franchise. He presented the hour long presentation at the Bethesda booth during the EB Expo this year. He first explains who he is, and why he wanted to create this presentation. The story kicks off around the 4:55 mark if you just want to jump straight to it, where he discusses Fallout’s beginning, in 1997.

For many, the series started with Fallout 3 on the last generation, with the first or third person gameplay, and the similarities to how The Elder Scrolls titles played. But Fallout had an origin, and for fans jumping into Fallout 4 for the first time, or fans who started with Fallout 3 in 2008, maybe this video will be worth watching before the new release leaves the Vault.

Why not order a crate of Fallout themed beer, and enjoy them while watching this video?
