Board games based off video games have become all the rage as of late.There's a board game version of XCOM, Dark Souls (which launched, by the way, and it's pretty good), Super Mario... you'll even find board game versions of The Witcher (or is that based on the book, as the art suggests otherwise), Portal, Bioshock Infinite, League of Legends, and Assassin's Creed. And soon, a new video game-themed board game is going to join the mix: Introducing Fantasy Flight's take on Fallout.

"In Fallout, one to four players take on a role within an irradiated landscape inspired by those in Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and their downloadable content expansions. With just a few locations pinpointed on their map, the players choose whether to work together or individually to explore these mysterious regions that lay before them. Along the way, each player will face a wealth of choices, deciding whether to pursue experience or Caps, collect loot or loyal companions, and progress the main questline or veer off to the vaults. As the players move around the board, building their skills and filling their inventory, the area's warring factions will gain power, forcing the players to pledge loyalty or defy conformity, all in pursuit of gaining the most influence of anyone else in the wasteland."


Sheesh, sounds like the kind of game you need to set aside the whole day for. The game is designed for four people, but there are five different characters you can play, including a Super Mutant (first pick) or a member of the Brotherhood of Steel. The fact it can either be played cooperatively or solo is interesting, but I don't see why you wouldn't give cooperation a shot, given you can't do that in-game.

There's no proper release date, but it's expected to launch sometime in Q4 of this year, so it won't be long of a wait. As most cases with these games, though, it'll cost you a pretty penny, around 59 bucks. But for Fallout fans or board game fans, it's worth the price of admission.
