If you’ve not yet played Bethesda Game Studios’ massive open-world post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4, or if you played the main game but none of the post-release downloadable content, a re-release of the game is on the way.
Bethesda has announced that a Game of the Year Edition of the game is on the way, which will include all of the DLC. On top of that, it’s been revealed that there will be Pip-Boy Editions—which come with a replica of the handy Pip-Boy you use in the game—for the GOTY re-release as well.
Return to the Wasteland on September 26 with Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition. With all the latest gameplay updates (including Survival mode), graphical enhancements, the ability to play Mods for free on PC and consoles, plus all official add-ons included, this is the ultimate way to experience the award-winning post-nuclear adventure from Bethesda Game Studios.
Winner of more than 200 “Best Of” awards – including the 2016 BAFTA and 2016 D.I.C.E. Game of the Year – Fallout 4 is the studio’s most ambitious game yet. As the sole survivor of Vault 111, you enter a world destroyed by nuclear war. Every second is a fight for survival, and every choice is yours. Only you can rebuild and determine the fate of the Wasteland.
Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition includes the fully updated original game along with all six add-ons: Nuka-World, Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop and Automatron. Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition will be available on September 26 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Be sure to reserve your copy in the upcoming weeks from select digital and physical retailers.
The Pip-Boys Are Back!
To celebrate the Game of the Year Edition, Bethesda will release a limited quantity of Fallout 4 G.O.T.Y. Pip-Boy collector editions, exclusively available in North America at select retailers. The Pip-Boy Edition includes Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition and will retail for $99.99 USD, and will also release on September 26.
It still hurts my heart to think about the unexpected amount of hate Fallout 4 got when it first arrived. Sure, it had some issues. But it’s still a phenomenal game. It might not be the best Fallout game ever made, but it might just be my personal favorite post-apocalyptic world. It’s devastating and terrifying, as you’d expect the end of the civilized world to be, but I just love hanging out in it. Even when it’s simply scavenging for junk while listening to the old songs on the radio stations or the game’s wonderful score, and using that junk to improve the various settlements I’ve established. I can spend hours getting lost in The Commonwealth, even two years later.
Be sure to check out that great first trailer for the game below if you’ve never seen it. Still gives me goosebumps. You can find my review of the game right here, and you can also click right here for lots and lots of other Fallout goodies to enjoy, including trailers for all of the DLC releases.
