[ Game -> Update ] - More info on Game: Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game

Gametap.com has added Fallout to their "950+" list of games, per a press release from Gamebanshee.com - which can be seen here.

Here's an excerpt from the article, courtesy of Brother None at NMA:

ATLANTA – June 2, 2008 – GameTap, the first-of-its-kind broadband entertainment network from Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), announced today an expanded partnership with Interplay Entertainment Corp. (OTC BB: IPLY) that now includes multi-year worldwide rights for the company’s titles to be available for digital download in its online store and for subscription play. Under the new agreement, Interplay titles will also be made available for free play on GameTap’s ad-supported website www.gametap.com.

“Interplay has been and continues to be a great partner of GameTap,” said Ricardo Sanchez, vice president of content and creative director for GameTap. “By expanding on our previous deal, GameTap will now feature more of Interplay’s top titles including their widely successful Fallout titles.”

As part of this expansive agreement, GameTap will now feature additional Interplay titles, including the critically acclaimed Fallout, Descent and MDK. New and previously featured titles, such as the Earthworm Jim series, will be added to the subscription service, GameTap’s ad-supported website, and also sold in GameTap’s online digital retail storefront.

Brother None also thankfully cleared up my first confused thought when I read the article, which was, "Didn't Interplay sell the rights to the fallout franchise?":

No, they sold the Fallout license. That's not the same thing as selling the older games.

You are on the greatest source of Fallout info on the planet (uh...barring the Vault),
use it
Fallout license

* Full rights and ownership of Fallout are owned by Bethesda Softworks LLC (Bethesda)
* In the purchase deal, Interplay Entertainment Corp. (Interplay) has retained the right to produce a Fallout MMO if it is started before April 9 2009 and "succesfully launched" before April 9 2013.
* The right to exploit the Fallout 1/2/Tactics/BoS sales has been retained by Interplay. Money from sales of those games goes to Interplay.

Fallout isn't quite available for download yet, but when it is, we'll let you know!
