The Fallout 76 special editions have this writer very, very excited.
Fans have been coy over whether or not the online entry into the Fallout franchise is what they want. Regardless, Bethesda will be preparing for some big sales.
Even though Bethesda is fundamentally challenging Rockstar and Red Dead Redemption; thanks to differing game styles, and release times, we’re sure both will fancy their chances at runaway success.
We’ve already been amazed at what you’ll get for buying special editions of Red Dead Redemption, but how does Fallout entice the cash out of our wallets?
Here’s what we know so far, and what will your hard-earned bucks net you:
Standard edition: £50
Nothing but the game – it is the standard edition. However, you can pre-order the game for a currently unknown bonus.
Tricentennial Edition: £70
The next step up comes with a hell of a lot more goodies to help kick-start your adventure in the West Virginia Wasteland. You get some real life stuff too, which makes the price a bit sweeter, but it is still a lot of whack.
- Tricentennial Power Armor Customization for the T-51, T-45, T-60, and X-01 Power Armors
- Tricentennial Weapon Customization for the 10MM Pistol, Hatchet, and Laser Rifle
- Spectacularly Handsome Vault Boy Mascot Head
- Patriotic Uncle Sam Outfit
- Celebratory Vault Boy Saluting Emote
- First-Class Tricentennial Workshop Posters
- Tricentennial Commemorative Photo Frame
Power Armor Edition: £160+
Okay, this is where the hardcore Fallout fans get involved.
If you missed out on the Pip-Boy edition of Fallout 4, then this could very much be the one for you. The price is pretty heavy if you think about it, but the goodies you get have got me excited and my bank manager very, very worried.
With this edition, you get the same bonuses as the Tricentennial one, but now you get an actual T-51 Power Armour helmet!
Yes, you can pretend to be a member of the Brotherhood of Steel, and it comes with a built-in voice modulator and working headlamp. There is also a West-Trek canvas duffle bag, a glow in the dark map, and 21 unique figures.
Imagine if you had the T-51 helmet and a Pip-Boy! In the future, we should expect a full suit of power armour for our money!
