Fallout Community Edition Brings Upgraded Version Of RPG To Android
The newly released open-source project Fallout Community Edition gives you a chance to play the classic post-apocalyptic RPG on more platforms than ever before. We’ve previously covered in an article last year another effort at a Fallout Android version via Google Play, so what does Fallout Community Edition bring to the table?Fixes And Flexibility
Released late last week, Fallout Community Edition is a re-implementation of the 1997 Interplay title, with some handy additions added by the Community Edition devs. There are engine bugfixes, and quality-of-life updates to make for a smoother experience.
Even better, Fallout Community Edition works on a wide range of devices and isn’t reliant on Google Play for its Android version. It requires a PC copy of the original game to start, and everything else you need you can grab from the project’s GitHub.
It can run on Android, PC, Mac, and even iOS if you’re into that sort of thing.
There’s even a Fallout 2 Community Edition as well, so you can work your way right onto the sequel once you’re done with the first.
Improvements aside, the game is quite mouse-heavy, and as such your taps direct a cursor around the screen. You may need a bit of time to get used to it if you’re accustomed to purpose-built mobile titles and ports, but it works perfectly well once you’ve got the hang of it.A Great Classic RPG
For most people, Fallout doesn’t need a lot of introduction as a franchise. The series takes place in the post-apocalyptic ruins of a retrofuturistic world after a war between the US and China caused nuclear annihilation.
The remains of the United States are a weird and desolate place, filled with rubble, mutated wildlife, raiders, and the satirical wreckage of uncontrolled consumerism.
Its later titles, after its acquisition by Bethesda, have become vast, sprawling, shooter-RPGs. The first of its outings is a very familiar world to the Bethesda and Obsidian titles but play very, very differently. Expect to have to think through your choices more, and for fights to be a more tactical affair.
Also, try playing a character with low intelligence at least once. You will not regret it.
