Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Fallout, a post-nuclear adventure board game based on Bethesda’s blockbuster video game series. In Fallout, one to four players take on a role within an irradiated landscape inspired by those in Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and their downloadable content expansions. With just a few locations pinpointed on their map, the players choose whether to work together or individually to explore these mysterious regions that lay before them. Along the way, each player will face a wealth of choices, deciding whether to pursue experience or Caps, collect loot or loyal companions, and progress the main questline or veer off to the vaults. As the players move around the board, building their skills and filling their inventory, the area’s warring factions will gain power, forcing the players to pledge loyalty or defy conformity, all in pursuit of gaining the most influence of anyone else in the wasteland.

 

 

One to four players select one of five playable explorers, from a savvy Wastelander to a stout member of the Brotherhood of Steel. Players range out across a modular, hex-based board that matches with one of several scenarios and settings – all of which are drawn from Bethesda’s core Fallout games or their expansions.  Players vie to gain influence across the chosen wasteland, allying with factions, gathering allies, acquiring weapons and armor, and leveling up their characters through an innovative twist on the “SPECIAL” progression system from the video games, where XP acquisition allows for the development of either increased development of an ability like Perception or Charisma, or a powerful perk that can provide a decisive advantage during a crucial moment. Battles and other conflicts are resolved through a clever custom dice mechanic, which showcase both numbers of successes in a test attempt but also allude to the “V.A.T.S.” targeting system by featuring body parts on the different dice faces.
