Happy anniversary!

It was in October 1997 when Fallout was first launched, and players were first introduced to a post-nuclear world, with irradiated monstrosities and memorable characters. Since then, the series is now a best-selling franchise that helped define role-playing games for the PC.

In addition, new titles have been released across multiple console generations. Not only that, a tabletop version was launched, with a television series coming soon.
