  • Is it better to be alone than in bad company? We'll find out once we learn more about the co-op specific parts of the Fallout board game in

Fallout 4 is coming back in a big way this September with the release of Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition.

Inspired by both Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, Fantasy Flight Games - the company responsible for Star Wars miniatures games, distributors for Android: Netrunner, Elder Sign and Mansions of Madness - announced that the Fallout board game would be a cooperative affair for up to 4 players.

There's no specific release date for the new board game outside of Q4 2017, but we do know that it will cost $59. It comes with "all the latest gameplay updates (including Survival mode), graphical enhancements, the ability to play Mods for free on PC and consoles, plus all official add-ons included, this is the ultimate way to experience the award-winning post-nuclear adventure from Bethesda Game Studios".

That means you're getting the must up-to-date version of the game along with six add-ons: Nuka-World, Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop and Automatron. The victor is the player who accumulates the most influence around the wasteland, as measured by cards you receive for exploring the map and finishing quests. And just like in the video games, Fantasy Flight wants to offer mounds of side quests to distract from completing the scenario's main story.

You'll encounter factions along the way, and be able to exert influence over them, which will become more important as these factions slowly expand and gain power across the map. There's no mention of whether Fantasy Flight will produce a companion app for the Fallout game, as they have done with some of their recent releases.
