“We don't have the rights to make a single-player game in the same format as Fallout 1 and 2. We can only make the massively-multiplayer version.
We are trying to keep the spirit of FO1/2. We think those were great games, and we want to bring the things that made them great into the MMO arena.”
“We're using a modified version of the SPECIAL system from Fallout. So there will be levels, XP, skills, perks, traits, stats, derived stats, [deleted] and so on. There are logical changes from the system as presented in FO1/FO2 to update it a little bit and make it work in an MMO, but it's still recognizably the SPECIAL system.”
