When Bethesda took over the rights to the Fallout franchise from previous holder Interplay in January, the company promised to have Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics back on Steam "at the earliest date possible." Turns out, the earliest possible date was earlier this week, a turnaround of just more than five months.

As announced on the Bethesda blog, all three games support Steam Cloud saves, Fallout and Fallout 2 can run in either high-resolution or classic low-res mode, and Fallout Tactics is currently not compatible with Windows 8. Each game is $9.99 apiece or $19.99 when bundled together as the Fallout Classic Collection.

Or rather, they would be, if the Steam Summer Sale weren't currently going on, marking individual titles down to $4.99 and the Classic pack to $12.99. Isn't that a nice case of coincidental timing?
