Fallout 4's Chryslus Rocket 69 Is Now a Drivable Car in Forza 6

Of all the games out there, the last two you'd expect to strike a partnership are a driving simulator and a post-apocalyptic survival RPG (that's role-playing game, not the other, more explosive type of RPG), and yet here it is.

Those who haven't played Fallout 4 - or any other game in the series, for that matter - have no idea what they're missing out on. The series goes all the way back to 1997 when the first game came out. It was an isometric turn-based role-playing game that quickly developed a very devoted fan-base thanks to its excellently written dialogue, dark sense of humor, and very immersive world.

All the following games kept most of these defining elements, even though its latest two iterations switched to a first-person perspective and a real-time combat system. The atmosphere, however, remained the same, as did the retro-futuristic theme - even though technologically advanced, everything in the game seems designed during the 1950's.

The Chryslus Rocket '69, however, was actually designed - as the name suggests - in '69. One nuclear war and 218 years later, the once beautiful sports car has seen better days. A lot of the models scorched bodies can be found scattered throughout the streets of 2287 Boston, 210 years after the apocalyptic conflagration.

Those who like to see a great restoration story will be in for a treat, though, as the collaboration between Fallout 4 and Forza 6 - announced back in November last year - is finally coming to fruition in the shape of a shiny new Chryslus Rocket '69. You can drive the two-door single-seater on the simulator's tracks, but you can't just go and buy the vehicle.

Using a clever way to repay the people who bought these two games or to convince those who already have one to also acquire the other, the Chryslus Rocket '69 will become available for all those who own both games on Xbox Live. If you find yourself in this situation, keep an eye out on the inbox, as you'll be receiving a redeeming code. Due to the large number of codes that need sending out, it might take a few days to get yours.

We love it when game developers show this type of thinking out of the box and decide to break the monotony with something cool and unexpected. I wouldn't expect the Chryslus Rocket '69 to drive exceptionally well, but it does go all the way to 200 mph (320 km/h), so at least there's that. There's also that little disclaimer at the end, though. Plus, with this morphing of the two universes, you can never be sure there isn't a huge Deathclaw waiting in the pit lane.
