Official Fallout Monopoly Board Game Revealed

Classic real-estate board game given post-apocalyptic makeover.

A special Fallout themed Monopoly set has been officially announced by Bethesda, and its release is expected to coincide with the Fallout 4 launch date in November.

Details of the board game first emerged when a Shacknews journalist published on Instagram a picture of its contents box. In the comments section of that Instagram photo, one user asked the board game's designer--USAopoly--about when and where it would be released. "This November only at GameStop," was the manufacturer's response. It is not clear if the board game will ship outside of North America.

Following this, the official Fallout Twitter account announced the product, writing: "When Fallout 4 monopolizes family time, you can always bust this out."

This does not mark the first time a video game has cross-pollinated with Monopoly. Other special editions of the classic real-estate management board game includes themes based onAssassin's CreedLegend of Zelda, and World of Warcraft.

Fallout 4, the long-awaited next entry in Bethesda's acclaimed series, is set to ship across Europe and North America from November 11.
