Bethesda Softworks has announced a new partnership with Connect Entertainment, arranging for its latest bestseller Fallout 3 to be distributed across a range of emerging markets throughout the world.
Released in North America and Europe towards the end of October, the publisher’s first venture with the iconic post-apocalyptic RPG licence will now be heading to 19 new regions around the globe on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
Under the terms of the deal, Bethesda will be releasing Fallout 3 in Greece, Malta, Cyprus, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Lebanon, Qatar, Egypt, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro.
“Fallout 3 is a key title for us and we are looking forward to a successful launch in these new territories,” said Bethesda MD Sean Brennan. “We’re looking forward to working with Connect.”
Spencer Guinchard, managing director of Connect, added: “It is a great opportunity working with Bethesda to achieve their goals in these diverse territories.”
The game has already seen both critical and commercial success after its US and UK debuts, reaching the top of the UK charts in its first week and outselling all previous Fallout titles and spin-offs combined.
