2. Software Overview
Bethesda Softworks Fallout 2 is a role-playing game (RPG) game set in a post-apocalyptic, retro-futuristic earth. It is similar to the first Fallout game but takes place in 2241, 80 years after the events of the original Fallout. The game was originally developed by Interplay and Black Isle Studios but Bethesda Softworks acquired the rights.
The purpose of the game is to find the Garden of Eden Creation Kit, which is an environmental restoration machine that can save the hero’s tribe. As you play the game, you can roam freely in an open world, encountering friendly and hostile inhabitants as you travel. How you choose to handle inhabitants dictates the future story and what gameplay opportunities are available.
Fallout 2 lets you choose different gameplay preferences, such as the game difficulty, combat difficulty, violence level, length of combat messages, and combat speed. You can choose the character you want to play as and his or her skills and traits.
Bethesda Softworks Fallout 2 is a satisfying sequel to the original. It features many of the same qualities of the first while expanding on the size of the world and storyline. If you enjoyed playing the first Fallout, you’ll find a similar experience playing the sequel.
