IGN Xbox has put together a preview of Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, the soon-to-be-released action RPG for both the PS2 and Xbox. An excerpt to follow:
As good as all of this action already looks, it still tastes a little bittersweet. The team that worked on this game got laid off just after they had put some of the finishing touches on it. All of Black Isle Studios got the boot which essentially killed the Fallout 3 project and anything else that may have been in the works. Dark Alliance 2 and F:BOS are all that's left of the company. Hopefully, all of the hard-working folk will land on their feet and continue to keep turning out quality titles. We wish them well.
Meanwhile, we still have a couple of games to play. So far, we've only been able to get through the first couple missions of F:BOS, which primarily cover clearing out scorpions and making nice with the townspeople, but far greater things await us. More importantly, far bigger guns and better abilities are in the works as well. Be sure to check back soon when we'll have the full review and we'll tell you all about it.
