Back in September an ambitious group of modders revealed a multiplayer framework for Fallout 3. Now the Vault-Tec Multiplayer Mod is in pre-alpha and available for download.

Multiplayer has long been a dream in the Fallout universe. As gamers travel across wastes filled with enemies it’s the perfect setting for a massively multiplayer game. These modders decided not to wait for developer Bethesda to release the next title before trying to get some in-game friend time.

Bethesda is rumored to be releasing information about a forthcoming Fallout title later this year. Everyone please cross their collective fingers for Fallout 4.

If you’re feeling techy and brave download the framework here and enjoy running around the wasteland with a friend.
