Modiphius unveil the FALLOUT tabletop roleplaying game

Modiphius Entertainment have unveiled the official Fallout tabletop roleplaying game. Remarkably - because the original video game was inspired by a homebrew tabletop campaign - this is the first official tabletop roleplaying version of the franchise in its almost quarter-century history.

The game will allow players to take on the roles of vault dwellers, ghouls, super mutants and robots, and will allow for GMs to create campaigns set anywhere in post-apocalyptic North America (and, with some imagination, elsewhere). The game will ship with a default setting based on Boston and the surrounding Commonwealth, from the video game Fallout 4, but it should be easy enough to adapt to any other settings.

The core rulebook is enormous at 438 pages and will be accompanied with custom dice, handouts, character sheet pads, Nuka Cola Cap coins and the possibility of incorporating their enormous miniatures range from the Fallout: Wasteland Warfare game into their core game. The game will also ship with a limited edition based on the GECK (Garden of Eden Creation Kit) from the video games, and a larger table bundle incorporating numerous extras.

The game uses the popular 2d20 rules system from Modiphius's other games, including Star Trek Adventures and Dishonored.

The game has a release date of "summer 2021," although given Modiphius's infamously vague release windows, it might be better to circle autumn before you get a copy in your hands. Additional expansions for the game should follow the initial release.
