Fallout Online Starts Sending Out A Cryptic Newsletter, Concept Art

Here it is, boys and girls, the first “details” that Interplay has sent out to those of you that signed up for their newsletter/beta for their upcoming MMO, Fallout Online. Haven’t gotten an email yet? Don’t fret, they probably haven’t gotten to you yet. As you might imagine, they probably got an enormous response, definitely bigger than they were anticipating. I mean, their sign-up page was down for days. Anyway, take a gander at the mysterious newsletter here:

But what does it mean? Beats me. That was a whole lot of ‘WTF’ in just a couple of pictures. I suppose we can infer that the game will have Brahmin, Radscorpions, Super Mutants (supes), and ghouls, if anything. As for the first picture, that’s some concept art that Interplay has released, the rest of which you can see here.

Update: Interplay has posted a press release announcing the newsletter itself, which they describe as follows: “Mutants and non-mutants who registered at the FALLOUT® ONLINE site are starting to receive tales from the wastelands. Interested players who sign up are on the fast-track for beta-testing and get the added bonus of a free subscription to the pre-release electronic newsletter. (No additional flora will be harmed by the production of this newsletter.) Subscribers may end their participation at any time, again without cost or additional fees. We are just that kind and giving.”

No More Mutants has a quote from Interplay’s Chris Taylor, who says the newsletter might take a few days to get to everyone:  “The first newsletter is on its way out. The emails are going out in alphabetical order and it will take a little while to email everyone. Check your spam filter if you don’t see anything in the next three days or so. (Yes, it will take three days to get all the emails out.)”

So, Zoolander Zorro, it looks like you’re shit out of luck for now!
