[ Game -> Preview ] - More info on Community: Duck and Cover | More info on Person: Todd Howard | More info on Company: Bethesda Softworks | More info on Game: Fallout 3

We now have a definitive release date for Fallout 3, and it's a lot earlier than any of us suspected. Take a look at the Press Release from Bethesda.

Rockville, MD - April 1, 2006 - Bethesda Softworks® today announced that the highly-anticipated role-playing game, Fallout® 3: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game, will be available in stores in North America and Europe during the week of July 17. Fallout® 3 will be available for Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC in both regular and collector's editions.

"Our most ambitious project ever is nearing completion," said Todd Howard, executive producer of Fallout® 3. "We're excited to get the game into everyone's hands and let them experience it for themselves. We hope they enjoy it. I think it's our best game yet, even better and more exciting than Oblivion"

Fallout® 3 is an epic, open-ended single-player RPG for the next generation providing gamers with one of the most life-like gaming experiences to date. The powerful combination of unprecedented graphics and freeform gameplay allows gamers to unravel the main quest or explore the vast world at their own pace. Fallout® 3 is the third chapter in the award-winning Fallout® series that was originially published by Interplay Entertainment Corp®.

This is unbeliebable news. July 17th can't come soon enough.

If any aspect of that Xbox 360 version is true, even though it's obviously an april fools joke, I'd cry.

For the last 3 years DAC has always posted FO3 publisher/release dates on April 1st on their web site. I had to prepare myself over a month ago, NOT to get excited when going to DAC homepage. I literally held my breath today---hoping to see FO3 news---and there it was. I knew it was DAC being DAC and yet...I was still excited.

I mean seriously, guys, even NMA had a better joke than you. What does that say about us as a community?

NMA's joke was hilarious because it's not totally unbelievable.

yeah, but you're biased so I think you just made this lame April Fools joke in order to undermine DaC and lead the way for a hostile NMA takeover Che

I just hoped to see the line "No. It's not an April's Fool joke, it's true." at the end of the article, but no icon_sad .

But at least the joke is better than what Beth's Fallout 3 seems to become.

"Koki, community pillar and a role model, dead" would've been more hilarious. Cause you're a nobody, roofles.

Nicolai MSN'd me to cry about how this news post had hurt him, so I think it was well worth it.
