    Highly Acclaimed Fallout Franchise Makes Its Console Debut

    Join the Brotherhood of Steel in a battle of post-apocalyptic mayhem

    LOS ANGELES, CA - (March 12, 2003) - Vivendi Universal Games and Interplay Entertainment Corp. (OTCBB:IPLY) today announced the development of Fallout(tm): Brotherhood of Steel(tm) for the PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox(tm) video game system from Microsoft.

    This gritty and darkly humorous 3rd person action adventure game transports players into the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the highly acclaimed and successful Fallout PC franchise. Utilizing a combination of intense combat strategies integrating melee, ranged weapons and explosives, 1 to 2 players can assume membership in The Brotherhood of Steel, warriors determined to bring their own sense of order to a nuked-out wasteland. "We're very excited about bringing the Fallout universe to console gamers," said Scot Lane, Executive Producer at Interplay. "The game play is more attuned to the console platform, stressing more action and combat than the PC versions which placed a greater emphasis on RPG elements or strategy."

    The fear of an apocalypse has become a reality. Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel begins after the first Fallout PC title in which humans emerge from the safety of underground vaults to explore the earth following a nuclear holocaust. In joining the Brotherhood of Steel, players will uncover a sinister plot that could transform the remainder of humanity into a race of mutants. The Brotherhood of Steel have come together to wage battle against the mutant raiders and pirates to fulfill their search for a mysterious and heavily sought-after device, one that could be used to help rebuild humanity or as a monstrous toll of war.
