Bethesda has just revealed a surprise for the fans and has the Fallout Anthology all packed and ready to blow in a clever little marketing move. Well in theme with the game’s post-apocalyptic edge, the company has gathered a nice Collector’s Edition that might certainly prove appealing to fans of the franchise.
The Fallout Anthology will be wrapped in a tiny nuke case and will contain all the five Fallout games so far released, namely Fallout 1, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition and Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition. It even has a spot for the much anticipated Fallout 4 to be released this year on November 10th.
Considering that GoG.com gave away the first three games for free back in 2013, chances are that, if you’re an avid fan, you already own all of them, but the tiny nuke set is a collector’s item, so it might not even matter. While most games and DLCs are more commonly sold on Steam, it’s rare for gamers to have the actual disk in their library anymore.
Such is the consequence of the ever growing technology, when virtual property is as important and genuine as actual property, with the added bonus that it will not take its own spot on your shelves. However, there is something still to be said about owning the actual, palpable product of your favorite games or books.
Bethesda has then gathered up the already-released Fallout games, tied them up nicely with a little bow, or nuclear rocket which is oddly the more appropriate option for the franchise, and is releasing them together in a collector’s item that might actually look good on your desk.
The collector’s edition of the Fallout Anthology will be available at $50 on September 29th, just a little over ten days before the release of the franchise’s fourth installment.
While it’s not a luxurious amount of time, it might just be enough to offer gamers the opportunity to go through its predecessors once again and properly prepare themselves for launch. It’s a nice touch added by Bethesda and they’re clearly pulling in their efforts to promote their upcoming game, which now has gamers so hyped that it has to live up to incredibly high expectations.
