Bethesda launches official Fallout 3 website

Bethesda has pumped out a swanky flash site to promote its irradiated action-adventure threequel, Fallout 3.

There’s some tasty new footage on offer, buried beneath a clever "Radiation King" TV front-end. Expect homocidal robotic ticket collectors, walking crabmen and plenty of good ole’ Fifties’ kitsch.

Fallout 3, of course, is the third game in the celebrated post-nuclear adventure series. Oblivion developer Bethesda has taken the beast out of its old isometric layer and given it new 3D flesh, together with an innovative real-time/turn-based first person combat hybrid.

The game hits North America on October 28, Europe on October 31 and Japan on December 4.
