Bethesda Bringing Classic FALLOUT Games Back To Steam

Given its popularity, it’s crazy to think that Fallout 3 was the entry installment for so many fans of the series. This is mainly because Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics have not only damn near disappeared from being digitally available due to legal disputes, but are also quite burdensome to obtain on CD-ROM.

But that is all getting ready to change very soon, as Bethesda recently announced that it is currently working to bring the old Fallout games back via Steam. Bethesda took to Twitter to proclaim its new undertaking, stating that it is its priority to make the games available “at the earliest date possible.”

This is perfect timing for the company to bring back the classics in the midst of a slew of Fallout 4 rumors. We’ve been excited to the point of salivating over casting documents, so revisiting the older games should prove to be a sufficient hold-over for Fallout veterans as well as fans who have yet to experience the origins of the series. We’ll be keeping a close eye on Bethesda for any more updates on the classic Fallouts’ returns.

    I bought these on steam some time ago, I just had to check my library and they are still there, which they are thank goodness. Glad that they are going back on sale as they are classic games and should be mandatory playing for any budding nerds out there.

  3. Robert "Anaerin" Johnston says:

    GOG was giving the titles away because they knew the deal was up and they’d be losing the rights to distribute them.

    To further the irony – not only have they been available, but GOG ran a promotion a couple weeks ago in which they gave all three titles away for free.

    Good thing I got these games years ago. So I don’t have to rebuy them, but Bethesda is kinda jerky in general with giving folks Steam keys for games bought from Bethesda before.

  6. Eytan Zweig says:

    As Sean pointed out, the earlier Fallout games have been available digitally for years now – in fact, they have been available until the end of 2013. The distribution rights to the Fallout games have just now transferred from Interplay to Bethesda, and GOG had made its deal with Interplay.

    In other words, Bethesda is trying to fix a problem they caused here; I don’t know why Bethesda prefers to distribute via steam versus GOG, but presumably that’s because they already have a working relationship with Valve but not with

    Sure hope they can bring those games back soon for all those people that have not played them yet.

  8. Sean says:

    They’ve been available on for years; fully admitting my ignorance here, but is not a service that’s available as widely as Steam? It’s run by the CD Projekt developers who created the Witcher series, so I wouldn’t say it’s of ill repute.
