Ky's Korner #31: A New Fallout...Not At All What You Might Expect. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Media. Entertainment.

A good Friday to you my friends!

If you have heard there is a new Fallout coming out soon… You have heard right, but I am sure it is nothing like what you may have expected. Fallout: Wasteland Warfare is different because… It’s a new table-top board game!

As you all know the Fallout series has made its mark on the gaming world and now it’s making its mark on board games too. Bethesda has teamed up with Modiphius Entertainment to bring us this whole new version of Fallout with a series of miniature-based role-playing board games.

As of right now, it’s hard to tell exactly what kind of board game this will end up being but, I am pretty sure it will be very similar to other miniature table-top battling games.

Thanks to a post shared on Facebook, Modiphius gave us a sneak peek of some of the new miniatures to be featured in the game. The examples included the ever so popular T-60 power armor from Fallout 4, Deathclaws & Nuka Cola Machines. The post included this caption:

“Fallout- Wasteland Warfare… Command a crew of detailed 32mm scale minis through PvP, co-op, and solo table-top missions.”

Tabletop games are actually a pretty huge deal in the hobby enthusiast scene… with games such as Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, Star Wars: X-Wing & Imperial Assault.

When I first heard of this board game concept… I worried how they were going to pull this off. I mean… to me Fallout is more of a survival game. Board games tend to be a bit more strategic. Can the Fallout story really work in this setting?? Well… it made me curious enough to find out, that’s for sure!.

I found a ton of info from the Modiphius website as well as their Facebook page… seems they have the most up to date content… both links can be found below if you wanna check em’ out.

Modiphius made the official announcement regarding the future of this board game Wednesday (4/26/2017) but, I’m sure we still have quite some time before it’s release.

Players are able to build their own crew with a variety of different fractions, including iconic characters from the Fallout series. The scenery is also supposed to mimic many scenes from the actual game and settlements will include, defenses, building, and recourses that will affect the course of the players game, along with their list of abilities while in the Wasteland.  Wasteland Warfare will have random missions as well as a narrative campaign with narrative objectives. Crew caps found in missions can be used to improve the player’s gear and weapons as well as upgrades for upcoming challenges. The game can either be played player vs player or in tournament mode. Either way, players must make it through the Wasteland in order to survive.

A solo custom play is also available… the player controls enemies that they can use to their advantage to replicate a fractions strategy. Players may also team up with friends to help one another fend off larger settlements or while exploring large areas. Play packs will available for purchase during the release at most major retail stores. This will be a group game that will bring in a ton of followers. We are watching another cult classic unfold right before our eyes friends, I am sure of that!

As I mentioned earlier, the wait may be long. The earliest it might be released will be sometime this summer and that’s only if the makers stay on course. We all know how these things go sometimes and as far as I can tell they are still in the early stages of completion. This doesn’t mean they can’t keep to their word… they could just be showing us only what they want us to see… they really haven’t put too much information out there about it until now, so… we shall see.

Do you think Fallout: Wasteland Warfare will as big as say… Dead Of Winter from the BioShock series or Pandemic: The Cure? And… if you have never heard of these you need to check them out… if you’re a board, dice or card based stacker games. There’s a whole world of gaming out there that doesn’t require a console. Even I was surprised how large that fan base really is and Bethesda is super smart for cashing in on it. I prefer my Xbox action to board game action any day but, I have to admit this intrigues me… I’d just like to get my hands on one and give it a go… why not!? It puts a whole new spin on the family game night for me…LOL.

Is this something you think is worth checking out or is this something you find no interest in? Is a Fallout board game simply too much or do you think it was a good move for the series? Let me know your thoughts… You know I am always interested in your feedback so let me have it, folks!

Thanks sooooo much for stopping by Ky’s Korner today!

Let’s do chat again soon!

    I thought this is a new video game I mean come on Fall out is a franchise is it not? It is surprising that they went from videogame to board game. It does not add up to be honest.

    If you ask me the developers should have made a new game instead of just remodeling it into these, Only time will tell if this is a hit or a miss. We will see.

  18. A tabletop game! Who would have thought? But it’s not really unprecedented. I guess the makers of Fallout have studied the success of other games that offered tabletop games too. Well, good luck to them!
