"FOnline" is a MMORPG, developed by russian Fallout fans, with the target to play Fallout together with other players in one big world. The game has nothing to do with Interplay's Project V13. For FOnline there has been created a totally new engine from scratch that uses original Fallout 2 graphic assets and other game files. The game tries to be as most like Fallout 1 and 2 as possible and is set in the year 2246 on the Fallout 2 worldmap.
The development of FOnline started already in early 2004.
Fights are mostly in real-time (like FT) and turn-based (like F1/F2).
If a character dies, he will respawn in special locations, called "Replication Station", with all memories up to the moment of death. Money is taken from the character for the cloning process. The player will spawn with the default blue overalls and the pip-boy, at which point they will wish you 'Good day'. All items, implants, money will remain on your corpse which will be absorbed by the Wasteland after a while.
All quests will be divided into groups: Cycle-based (Clean up a shelter, clear a area of wreckage, repair the generator), Disposable (Become a paladin of Brotherhood of Steel or become a citizen of Vault-City) and Unique (Save the world). While cycle-based quests will be available to players from time to time, Disposable quests will be available to one-time only to a limited number of players. Unique quests may be completed only once per game session. Considering the variety of the Fallout world, we hope that they will keep everyone entertained.

The third open beta test will start on 15. August 2009 and will hold on until the official game release.
