Once, the early Fallout RPGs were available on GOG. Then Bethesda and Interplay had a big fight (opens in new tab), and Bethesda gained full rights to the Fallout series. Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics all promptly disappeared from GOG and Steam (opens in new tab), and then—months later—returned to Steam only (opens in new tab). That was it for the epic saga of The Company Who Owned A Thing. Until today.
GOG and Bethesda have finally struck a deal, and the Fallout games are back in DRM-free form on the distribution service (opens in new tab). Also, GOG is now selling a number of other Bethesda-owned classics—all DRM free. Two of these new old games are being made available digitally for the very first time.
Here's what's now available:
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year Edition
- The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard
- The Elder Scrolls: Battlespire
- Quake (includes Mission Pack 1 and Mission Pack 2)
- The Ultimate DOOM
- DOOM II + Master Levels for DOOM II + Final DOOM
- Fallout 2
- Fallout Tactic
