Fallout Trilogy, Fallout Collection (in the UK) or Fallout Classic Collection (Steam) is a compilation of the first three games in the Fallout series. It contains Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel. The compilation was first released in 2004.

Release history[edit | edit source]

In 2004, the compilation was first released as Fallout Collection in the United Kingdom and as Saga Fallout in Poland. In 2006, it was released in the United States and Australia as Fallout Trilogy.

In May 2009, the Fallout Trilogy compilation was #7 or #8 on all NPD weekly top 10 PC bestsellers lists,[1] and #9 on the monthly list.[2]

In September 2009, Bethesda Softworks sued Interplay for trademark infringement, partly in relation to the Fallout Trilogy pack. According to Bethesda, the licensing contract required all advertising, packaging and other promotional material to be sent to them for approval first, which, according to the lawsuit, was never done by Interplay regarding neither the Fallout Trilogy pack, nor any of the releases through Good Old Games, Steam and other digital distribution platforms. Bethesda also claimed that the name Trilogy constitutes unfair competition, since it suggested that the pack includes Bethesda's own Fallout 3. Interplay argued that there were previous releases of this pack under the same name, and thus the new edition does not violate the Asset Purchase Agreement. The case was settled out of court in 2012.

Since 2014, the three games can currently be bought as a collection from Steam.

In 2015, Bethesda released a new collection called Fallout Anthology, which also includes Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.

Bonus content[edit | edit source]

The disc contains not only three Fallout games, but also some bonus content. It contains artwork such as animated GIF's and illustrations, videos, manuals, patches, and more.

Patches[edit | edit source]

The latest patches for Fallout and Fallout 2 are included on this compilation's DVD. However, to fix some compatibility issues, Interplay released a new, additional Fallout Tactics Direct Sound patch on May 12, 2009.
