Today, we bid farewell to the legendary post-apocalyptic 2D classics.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we needed to pull the three classic Fallout games, that is Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics, from sale and remove them from our DRM-free catalog. These classic titles have been with us since day one, that is for over 5 years now, and they were always one of the highlights of the selection of games that we offer. There are very few titles in the history of computer role-playing games, that have had so much impact on the gaming landscape, players' expectations, and even the popular culture. The iconic setting, the memorable quotes, and unparalleled amount of fun and challenge these games provide--it's all burned in the memory of a whole generation of gamers. Probably even more than just one generation. It was an honor to have you here, Fallout. Take good care of yourself out there, try not to mistake a gecko for G.E.C.K. (not even remotely the same thing!), and remember to take your Rad-X pills!

All those who acquired Fallout, Fallout 2, or Fallout Tactics on GOG.com prior to the date of removal (that is before Tuesday, December 31st 2013, at 3:59PM GMT), will still be able to download the games' install files (as well as the bonus content) via the "My Games" section of their user accounts. Gift-codes for these three games acquired in our recent giveaway are no longer valid. However, if you own a gift-code for any or all of them that was purchased outside of the said giveaway, you'll still be able to redeem it in the foreseeable future.

We sincerely apologize for all the inconvenience this situation may have caused you. We invite you to browse through 671 other fantastic titles offered in our DRM-free catalog of the best games in history, and we wish you a Happy New Year of gaming!
Goodbye old friends! May we meet once again! Thanks for being here as a shining light that brought me to GOG!

(sorry for the melodrama but I had to *ahem* shut down the Fallouts today. )

shmerl: Thanks for not pulling the games from those who already bought them.
We wouldn't dream of doing that...unless lawyers :/

dr.zli: at least it's only a mark you need to check or uncheck ;)
Well, I hope I get to put them back up one day :)

shmerl: Such stuff isn't unheard of (Amazon and etc.). I.e. they might offer refund, but many aren't strangers to silently pulling stuff, especially DRMed services. Of course GOG customers can back up what they bought (hello DRM-free), but keeping them on your servers for those who bought the games is still good. In general, even though in this case it's good, it's still a reminder - always to back up what you buy, just in case.
Well, if we ever have to pull not only the game from but from your shelf, then I am sure we would at least let you know beforehand :)

Thunderstone: The scum of the earth! (with the exception of whoever represents me).

You hear that lady's and gents time to back'em up just in case.

Sslaxx: I'm taking this post as intimating Beth is trying to force GOG to pull the games down from peoples' libraries.
No, nothing like that is happening.

ForgetDeny: A sad day indeed. The Fallout and HoMM games were what brought me to GoG initially, it doesn't feel quite right Fallout not being here. Hopefully this just means that GoG will be trying harder than ever to sign a contract with Bethesda/Zenimax, and we'll see not only a return of Fallout but also gain some Morrowind, Daggerfall and Arena that work on modern systems without massive tooling around. I never played Daggerfall or Arena, due to aforementioned tooling, but Morrowind represents one of the most important gaming experiences of my life. Plus, if they sign Bethesda then they also get Id, and who doesn't think that Doom, Wolf3D and [especially] Commander Keen are seriously missing from the catalogue? So, at least there's a possible silver lining to this stormy cloud over GoG.
Daggerfall now has DaggerFallSetup that installs about as easy as a GOG game :)

ForgetDeny: Thanks for that bit of info! Last time I tried it required a whole bunch of emulation know-how to achieve. Seriously though, part of me just feels like they belong in my GoG list, which to some degree I treat as a museum of classic (in a high-brow sense) games.
You aren't the only one :) I know a lot of our community members that have that same feeling about their game shelves :)
