Fallout Online dev quotes and court case update

Ausir October 28, 2010 User blog:Ausir

Here's a bunch of Chris Taylor quotes about Fallout Online from the official Interplay forum:

Single-player Fallout from Interplay?

We don't have the rights to make a single-player game in the same format as Fallout 1 and 2. We can only make the massively-multiplayer version.

We are trying to keep the spirit of FO1/2. We think those were great games, and we want to bring the things that made them great into the MMO arena.

Engine:

We are not going to use the same engine as FO1/FO2. The camera perspective will be more flexible. You will be able to look up at the sky, for example.

One big server vs. sharding:

The intent is to have multiple shards. For gameplay reasons, it's very important there are multiple shards.

Platforms:

The only platform we've even sort of announced is Windows-based PC.

SPECIAL:

We're using a modified version of the SPECIAL system from Fallout. So there will be levels, XP, skills, perks, traits, stats, derived stats, [deleted] and so on. There are logical changes from the system as presented in FO1/FO2 to update it a little bit and make it work in an MMO, but it's still recognizably the SPECIAL system.

Interplay investor orionquest also reports that Bethesda has filed court paperwork requesting a trial by jury from the judge presiding over the Bethesda v. Interplay case over the rights to Fallout Online, as well as Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics. We'll let you know when we know more.
