Bethesda Softworks, developers of the soon-be-be-realized apocalypse that is Fallout 3, have recently launched a new promotional site for the game. Designed in the retro-futuristic informational style that we’ve all come to love, prepareforthefuture.com is presented via a Radiation King television set.
The TV features some channel buttons on the side, each of which presents you with a little video and is followed by a mini-game of sorts. Here’s one example:
Following this video, an interactive version of the map appears, allowing you to click on the different landmarks and view an in-game flyby of the location. Other channels describe V.A.T.S. and then let you shoot of body parts, or it will talk about the GOAT and then let you take a mini version of the test to find out what your job should be (mine told me I should be awesome — mission accomplished).
Like most of the stuff I’ve seen recently for Fallout 3, this new site has me incredibly excited to get my hands on the game. Even with just a month left before release, I still feel like the game can’t get here fast enough. Seems odd that I’m looking forward to the end of the world, but Bethesda does a good job of making the apocalypse seem fun. Maybe they should do PR for the government (SNAP!).
