Interplay teases Fallout Online

Art and stories appear in newsletter.

Still eager to prove that it's actually making Fallout Online, Interplay has started sending out teaser newsletters to people who sign up at the MMO's website - and has announced the fact in a press release.

The first newsletter, reported on and reproduced by Destructoid, takes the form of a spot of landscape concept art and a fragment of story. In the text, an adventurer reports the ravings of a madman about a "Monkey Butt Mine" in a letter to a friend.

It's all very nice and very Fallout, but it doesn't really add up to anything like a game yet. Interplay started taking names for beta testing a couple of weeks ago.

Development of Fallout Online has been overshadowed by a legal dispute between Interplay and Fallout rights owner Bethesda. Until recently, Interplay would only refer to the game as Project V13.

Although the legal battle is currently in hiatus, with Bethesda having dropped its most recent appeal, Bethesda says it's not over yet.
