Cancelled Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Sequel Revealed by Design Document

By Nick Breckon, Mar 16, 2009 6:01pm PDT A cancelled sequel to Black Isle's Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel has been revealed by a leak of the game's original design document.

The original Brotherhood of Steel was released in January of 2004 on Xbox and PlayStation 2. An action-oriented take on the traditional RPG Fallout, Brotherhood of Steel earned mixed reviews, with many criticizing its linear design and repetitive hack-and-slash gameplay.

The PlayStation 2-exclusive sequel, merely named Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel 2, was targeted for a fourth quarter release in 2004. According to the document, the game would have been a return to form for Black Isle, with a quest and character structure that would have more closely matched the first PC Fallout titles.

New stealth and reputation systems would have marked the major features, while a planned "Fat Boy" portable nuke should sound familiar to Fallout 3 fans.

Originally uncovered by a Game of the Art forum member, you can now grab the fascinating document from FileShack.
