GOG is hyping up its massive overhaul/relaunch by making the original Fallout free for the next 48 hours
. Available for XP, Vista and Windows 7, the free version includes the game itself, Fallout
-themed wallpapers, a 205 page "Fallout
bible" and the soundtrack.
Originally released in 1997, Fallout
will feel familiar and yet dramatically different
to anyone whose history with the series begins with Fallout 3
. For a total investment of zero dollars, however, it's hard to do much better.
