Three Fallout Titles Return To Steam

After being removed from Steam, GOG.com, and other digital platforms earlier this year, Bethesda is bringing back Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics to the Steam store. While most changes to the games involved removing outdated publisher info, players will find a couple of improvements in two of the three classic games.

The reason that the three games were removed in the first place had to do with rights of the games transitioning to Bethesda. Because Bethesda did not have the rights until earlier this year, the company had to make edits in the games' text so that it properly reflected Bethesda as the owner of Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics. However, Bethesda also took time to add improvements to Fallout and Fallout 2.

Both games will support Steam Cloud saves and have a "default" and "classic" gameplay mode. Classic keeps the game in its original state, but default allows a higher resolution. Fallout Tactics remains unmodified and will support multiplayer through a direct connection. Sadly, Fallout Tactics will not run on Windows 8.

If you previously owned either of the three Fallout titles on Steam, they will still be a part of your library. Otherwise, each game is available at $10 apiece or $20 bundled together.
