Had enough of post-apocalyptic games yet? Hopefully not, because as Shacknews reports, Interplay has started letting folks sign up for the Fallout Online beta. Here's your chance to run around viciously slaughtering mutants and Brahmin cows among friends—while submitting all-important bug reports, of course.
The signup website includes snapshots of concept art and old-timey music, but it says little about the game or when the beta will actually kick-off. However, Shacknews heard Interplay mention a 2012 release time frame for the beta a few months back.
Interestingly enough, neither Fallout 3 developer Bethesda nor Fallout New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment are putting this game together. Instead, the Shack says Interplay is co-developing the MMO with Masthead Entertainment, all under the watchful eye of Fallout designer Chris Taylor. (Interplay, as you might recall, was the series' original publisher.)
