FOnline: 2238 brings you back to the world of Fallout once you knew it, only this time as a MMO-RPG hybrid. Cross the border where the unique game setting of the original Fallout & Fallout 2 games meets the unique MMO design... FOnline: 2238 is awaiting you.

On Sunday, June 23rd 2013, the FOnline: 2238 server will be shut down. We would like to thank the players who supported us with their suggestions, bug reports, patches and content. Special thanks to all wiki editors, moderators and game masters. Last but not least, we would like to thank all our donors, who helped us to keep the 2238 server running for so long! Without you, the last 4 years wouldn't have been the same.

The Server
On Sunday, June 23rd 2013, the FOnline: 2238 server will be shut down. The details are trivial and pointless, the reasons, as always, purely human ones. The interest in the current state of the game is steadily declining, while, at the same time, expectations about further development of the project can't be matched. With a decimated player base and, in turn, low number of donations we can't afford us any further server lease.

For you, the players, this means that there are over two weeks to play and discuss FOnline: 2238 on the current forum. This moment occurs important to many of us and we would like to use this opportunity to invite all the people who have been sharing so many memories from the last four years to login on June 23rd (evening time CET) for a big shutdown party. We definitely would love to have as many people as possible during these very moments and, of course, during the last days of 2238.

We would like to thank the players who supported us with their suggestions, bug reports, patches and content. Special thanks to all wiki editors, moderators and game masters. Last but not least, we would like to thank all our donors, who helped us to keep the 2238 server running for so long! Without you, the last 4 years wouldn't have been the same.

However, this is not the end, merely a new beginning for us - and we hope for some of you as well.

The Forum
The current 2238 forum will be transformed into a "FOnline developer zone" - a community dedicated to game development using the FOnline engine, a place where you can discuss developing games, ask questions about the engine, publish and share your work with others, announce new FOnline projects and maybe even have a whole board for your own project. As an inevitable result of this change, all 2238 game related boards will be closed with everything regarding the "SDK" and "3D Development" expanded. If you have any ideas and suggestions, feel free to share them with all of us.

Currently there is no decision whether the FOnline: 2238 sources will be released or not.

That's all folks, have fun in the last days of 2238!

A black day for the Fallout World and Community. Thank you for your effort to hold the Fallout World a bit longer alive but everything is doomed to demise anytime.

Well, it was nice being a small water drop in the ocean of 2238. Good luck, everyone.

Just release the sources to let the community handle this.

I agree what SPTX said.. Release the source codes and the community will eventually start hosting their own servers and continue the project where it was left on. I really want/wanted to see how FOnline: 2238 would look on the 3D era. I wish you guys good luck with your lives, over and out!

Bye guys. This has so many memories for me. Fallouts 1+2 were the first M-rated games I could play, and this came out just after I beat them both. I remember playing on my ******, broken down WXP computer that had been in disrepair since 2003. Bye.
