Fallout 25th Anniversary Celebrations
Category: News ArchiveHits: 1002
Bethesda is getting ready to celebrate the 25th anniversary since Fallout's release with a series of promotions, giveaways and community events. To kick things off, they bring us some Fallout 76 freebies and promise a new Fallout Shelter update.
More on that:
In October of 1997, players first encountered Fallout’s post-nuclear world and its memorable characters, irradiated monstrosities, impactful conversations and stark reminders that war…war never changes.
25 years later, the Fallout series is a best-selling franchise that not only helped define PC role-playing games and spawned entries across multiple console generations, but also has made its way to tabletop games and even an upcoming television series. Join us as we ring in a milestone year for Fallout throughout the entire month of October!
