Fallout Online First Concept Art

Project_V13For the little history lesson Fallout was developed by Black Isle Studios and published by Interplay. Black Isle Studio closed and several years later Bethesda Softworks grabbed the rights of the series and developed a sequel, at least in spirit, in Fallout 3.

Interplay though still has the rights for the MMORPG Fallout Online (otherwise known as Project V13). Which they will loose on April 4th 2011. So time is of the essence and they have just released the first art for the game.

Not much too feed on so far but it looks nice.

Blizzard Working on Redneck Rampage??

redneckO.K. I know exactly what you brain is doing right now. Blizzard = Polished, high quality, serious titles. Redneck Rampage = mayhem, complete lunacy.

Blizzard + Redneck Rampage =….. Does Not Compute.

Well my friends, things are not as they seem.
Redneck Rampage was developed in 1998 by Interplay. Later the rights to the franchise were bought, in 2004, by Vivendi Universal. The game ended up landing at Blizzard.

O.K. so that’s a start but the real kicker is this. Several of Blizzard employees actually worked on Redneck Rampage, including the Senior Producer for The Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King and Level Designer for the defunct StarCraft: Ghost.

So is this all completely crazy? maybe but it’ll certainly be fun to watch.
