After the, erm, fall out with Vivendi in autumn 2003, it seemed that Interplay and its next incarnation of the Fallout series were lost in the ether. Step forward Avalon Interactive and all is back on track. Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is finally coming to PS2 and Xbox next month, and we have some recently released screens courtesy of its new publisher. We can also give you a rundown on the soundtrack to the game. Brutish metal types such as Meshuggah, Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Skinlab, CellDweller and Cult of Luna all contribute, but the real coup is the presence of Slipknot - every parent's favourite.
Based on the much-admired PC games from the late 90's and early noughties, Brotherhood of Steel is a third-person strategy/combat experience where the central characters find themselves emerging in the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust. Joining the Brotherhood of Steel is the only way to prevent what's left of the human race from being transformed into a culture of mutated beings. Going up against the mutant pirate gangs is the only way you're going to survive and make sense of the world around you. The rebuilding and conservation of humankind is the ultimate goal.
Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel will be available to buy in March.
