Fallout 3 concept art, score, whatever


The official site of Fallout 3, a post-apocalyptic role-playing game, will display a new piece of concept art each week in the lead-up to the release of the teaser trailer on - if my calculations are correct - June 5. You can also preview some of the score, which sounds like the work of Bethesda's number one musical buddy, Jeremy Soule.

Not familiar with the Fallout franchise? The original Fallout games (Fallout 1 and 2) were released in 1997 and 1998 respectively, both exclusively for PC. Both installments were post-apocalyptic role-playing games featuring turn-based combat, a top-down isometric view, and a story drenched in dark humour. The original games were developed by Interplay Entertainment, but, judging by their official website - and the bevy of financial troubles they've faced - they've hit on hard times. Fallout 3 is to be developed by Bethesda Softworks: the development studio behind the Elder Scrolls series of games.

The original Fallout games were critically acclaimed but never achieved widespread success. They did, however, garner a cult-following which appears to be alive and kicking today. For every fan who is excited about a new installment to the series, another is convinced Bethesda will muddy the Fallout name. Chances are the debate is happening right now, around the clock...
