In Fallout 2, you once again find yourself braving the ruthless and merciless wasteland in search of the Garden of Eden Creation Kit, or G.E.C.K., in order to save your village from certain doom. That doom is a drought that has drained your village's reserves over the last decade. In order for it to survive, you need to venture to Vault 13, which your grandsire was cast out of 80 years ago. Standing between you and your goal is vast amounts of radiation, super mutants, and other humans with varying levels of friendliness. Deceit, lies, and treachery are common, yet they can be your tools too if you seek a less violent route.
It's been 80 long years since your ancestors trod across the wastelands. As you search for the Garden of Eden Creation Kit to save your primitive village, your path is strewn with crippling radiation, megalomaniac mutants, and a relentless stream of lies, deceit and treachery. You begin to wonder if anyone really stands to gain anything from this brave new world.
Mastering your character's skills and traits for survival, Fallout® 2 will challenge you to endure in a post-nuclear world whose future withers with every passing moment...
