You may recall that at the end of 2013, following the expiration of Interplay's license to sell them, the original Fallout games were removed from sale on GOG, due to the site's lack of a partnership with Fallout IP owners Bethesda Softworks. Those classics, formerly among the site's top-selling games, have been gone since then. Recently, however, existing owners of the Fallouts noticed that their copies had been renamed to "Fallout Classic", "Fallout 2 Classic", and "Fallout Tactics Classic", respectively.
So it was not a huge surprise today when GOG announced their new partnership with Bethesda Softworks, not only bringing back the Fallouts but also releasing the classic Elder Scrolls titles as well. Yes, including Battlespire and Redguard! They've released classic id Software shooters Doom and Quake as well. Here's the announcement:
Today, we're happy to start a blooming new partnership with Bethesda Softworks, one that brings an impressive lineup of their unforgettable games to our DRM-free platform, and plenty of guts and nuclear smiles to our faces.
We're teaming up to release some of the greatest hits from the Bethesda vault, some DRM-free for the first time ever. Eleven new arrivals include The Elder Scrolls and two digital-distribution premieres, totally retro id Software shooters, plus the long-awaited return of the Fallout franchise!
