Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (abbreviated as FO:BoS, FOBOS or simply BOS) is an action game developed and produced by Interplay Entertainment for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 game consoles. Released on January 13, 2004, BoS was the fourth video game to be set in the Fallout universe and the first to be made for video game consoles.
The game chronicles the adventures of an initiate of the Brotherhood of Steel. Because of numerous inconsistencies with previous Fallout games, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is not considered part of the official Fallout canon, however some of its content could be used as "flavor" material.
The Secret Vault is Vault-Tec's private vault, where its members intended to survive the apocalypse and later enter the world having all the useful technologies possible. It was located under the ghoul town of Los. The Vault serves as a major research and production facility and, among its many technological artifacts, housed a special version of Forced Evolutionary Virus. Some time after the war, the Secret Vault was torn apart by a local civil war between Vault-Tec scientists and Blake, the chief security officer, who believed the researches with FEV and radiation, conducted on living subjects, including humans, are "evil". Their battles led to a major explosion that devastated a large portion of the Vault and enabled some species of radroaches and Deathclaws, native to the Vault, escape into the wasteland, at the same time allowing radscorpions and rats invade the Vault. CALIX also suffered a malfunction, and lost control over majority of the security robots.
