In anticipation of fervently anticipated sequel Fallout 4, Bethesda has released a gorgeous boxset collection of every Fallout game in the series, housed within one of the games’ Fat Boy nukes. The Fallout Anthology contains the first three major entries in the series, plus Fallout Tactics and Fallout New Vegas, and even allows space to include Fallout 4 after its release in November.
According to the Bethesda website, the Anthology includes, in reverse order:
Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition
Set more than 200 years following nuclear war, create any character you want and explore the open wastes of Washington, D.C. however you choose. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland. In addition to the critically-acclaimed Fallout 3, the Game of the Year Edition includes official add-ons: The Pitt, Operation: Anchorage, Broken Steel, Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta.
Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Edition
Battle your way across the heat-blasted Mojave Wasteland to the neon drenched Vegas Strip. Along the way you’ll be introduced to a colorful cast of characters, factions, mutated creatures and much more. The Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Edition comes complete with the full suite of add-ons: Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, Lonesome Road, Courier’s Stash and Gun Runners Arsenal.
In these dark times, the Brotherhood of Steel is all that stands between the rekindled flame of civilization and the radiated Wasteland. Take up arms, stand shoulder to shoulder with your brethren, and protect the weak, whether they like it or not. Your squadmates will be more dear to you than family and for those that survive there will be honor, respect and the spoils of war.
It’s been many years since your ancestors trod across the wastelands. As you search for the Garden of Eden Creation Kit to save your primitive village, your path is strewn with crippling radiation, megalomaniac mutants, and a relentless stream of lies, deceit and treachery. You begin to wonder if anyone really stands to gain anything from this brave new world.
After 80 years of idyllic Vault life, Vault 13’s vital water chip has malfunctioned. You are chosen by the Overseer to venture out into the Wasteland and save your fellow Vault Dwellers. Seek out a new microchip and return before the water supply runs out.
The Fallout Anthology is priced £39/$50, but is reportedly out of stock at most major retailers. In the UK, the boxset’s exclusive seller GAME has already sold out.
