Fallout, a PC classic: retro-futuristic dystopia from the 50s
Fallout is a game that released its first installment in October 1997. Initially published by Interplay and later purchased by Bethesda (The Elder Scrolls, Doom, Wolfenstein, among others), it is based on a post apocalyptic world of the future but with reminiscences of the past.
Initially the game was born as a turn-based battle RPG. Then he evolved towards the first person and the action, without abandoning the role elements.
Fallout 4, perhaps one of the most popular installments (but one of the least loved by most fans hardcore of the saga), it has an aesthetic from the United States of the 50s, which apparently from what we can see in the small announcement, would seem to be respected in the series.
The games always maintained an aesthetic atompunk, with worlds in decline, great development of nuclear technology, much black mood and a strong narrative component.
Over the years different deliveries were published. Fallout 76 is the last one, which is played entirely online and has an expansion called Wastelanders. Is available in Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
