In November 2007, Interplay reopened in-house development and hired Fallout developer Jason D. Anderson as creative director for an unannounced MMO. The game is most likely to be Fallout-related, given that he is the contact name of Interplay's jobs appliance and that Fallout is referred in the job requirements. On September 23, 2008, Interplay launched its new website and annonced that Chris Taylor has also joined the team. It is currently unknown whether any other developers of past Fallout games will also be working on this project. And the MMO's code name is "project V13", it's the working title of Interplay's next generation Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMO) currently in development. In related news, the Interplay website has been re-launched.

Let's check out the Project V13 FAQ here.


What is Project V13?

Project V13 is the codename for an unannounced post-apocalyptic Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game being developed at Interplay by Jason Anderson and Chris Taylor, two of the creators of Fallout.

While not officially announced as such, it is believed to be set in the Fallout world, an alternate universe based on 50s sci-fi pulp fiction, as if the world had stopped in the optimistic 50s and found itself on a dystopian post-apocalyptic reality. It will be a spin-off of the Fallout series, which includes Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout 3.

Is Fallout Online or Project V13 the official title?

No. Since no title has been officially announced, the name Fallout Online (or FOOL) is used by Fallout fans to refer to the possible future Fallout MMO. While Project V13 is used officialy by Interplay, it is a codename, not the final name of the game. The official title will be known after the game is announced.

What does "V13" stand for?

It likely stands for Vault 13, which was the starting location in the original Fallout. Vault 13: A GURPS Post-Nuclear Adventure was also the initial working title of what eventually became Fallout.

Is Fallout Online really in development?

The game has not been announced yet, however, Interplay has licensed the rights to a Fallout MMORPG from Bethesda and hired Jason Anderson and Chris Taylor, two of the creators of Fallout, to work on an unannounced MMORPG project, and since Interplay is working on only one MMO project, the project being Fallout Online is a pretty safe bet.

When is it going to be released?

Unknown, since the game is yet to be announced. However, in order to avoid violating its contract, Interplay would have to launch the MMORPG before April 2013.

a great article. your and my experience does not have much differences and i also like enjoying the game's sorroundings and doing quest with a group of people but having too much botters and cheaters really destroys my gaming experience.

Aion, as Beautiful as Before, Is Different to Me Now



Personally, I found Final fantasy XI to be a big let down. The pace of the game is so tedious. Being a big fan of the whole series on consoles- i expected quite a lot. However, Perhaps FFXIV may be different. F2P sounds good however a lot of riff raff usual entail with such things.

FF XIV Follow-up Report: F2P is not an Impossible Dream



Sad....Is she that godly at CS?? I doubth it. Quiting school bad move. "models for a friend" = Doing Xrated things and degrating your self. Notice it's not a professional company. I mean honestly, if you can't even finish the basics which is (1st-12th grade) and graduate.... How much or a moron can you be??.... Her looks will fade, her hands will develop artritis and she will either get pregnant or catch an STD and end up working a dead end shitty job living with her parents. But this is after the whole CS thing blows up in her face.
