The Reaver Movement is a cult of humans dedicated to the worship of technology. Unlike the Brotherhood of Steel, Reavers feel technology has an important religious signifigance. While Reavers revere technological instruments and weapons, they were not allied with the Calculator's robots, and are in fact attacked by them.

Around 2198, a Reaver delegate comes to the Brotherhood of Steel Bunker Delta, bringing news that a large Calculator's robot force has all but annihilated the main Reaver camp in Newton. The Reavers' numbers were devastated by relentless attacks and they would soon be destroyed. Normally, the Brotherhood would gladly allow one enemy to destroy another, but the Reavers have something to offer - an EMP device that has a devastating effect on electronics, making it an effective weapon against the robots.

About Fallout Tactics
Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, developed by Micro Forté and published by Interplay in 2001, was the first spin-off in the Fallout series. It focuses on squad-based combat and introduces near real-time combat, called "continuous turn-based" by the developers, as well as a multiplayer mode, to the Fallout series.

The game takes place in 2197 in the American Midwest. The Brotherhood of Steel is trying to claim territory surrounding Chicago. The Warrior, the player character, is a new recruit to the Brotherhood, tasked to lead a squad of soldiers made up of available initiates.

The first three games set in the Fallout world: Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics, all three of which were removed from Steam at the beginning of this year, when the rights to the titles were lost by Interplay and gained by Bethesda Softworks, have now returned to the Steam store.

  • All three games have Steam Cloud enabled for save games.
  • Fallout 1 & Fallout 2 can be launched in either default or classic versions. Default allows for high resolutions and Classic is the original, unmodified release.
  • Fallout Tactics is unmodified. Multiplayer works with direct connect.
  • While Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 can run on Windows 8, Fallout Tactics is not Windows 8 compatible.

Currently, there is no news on whether the games will return to other services, such as GOG.com.

Sadly, Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics have been removed from the GOG.com catalogue due to the settlement of the Bethesda vs. Interplay lawsuit. The rights to the classic games are now entirely owned by Bethesda. We're still hoping they might re-release them in the future! The games can still be downloaded if you purchased them before.
