It shouldn’t rightfully have made it to the top of anybody’s Game of the Year lists, but wasteland wondering simulator Fallout 4 is getting a Game of the Year Edition.
Fallout 4 publisher Bethesda Softworks announced yesterday that a Game of The Year Edition of the shooty RPG is on its way next month, and will be available to purchase on September 26. It’ll pack in all of the games previously available DLC – Nuka-World, Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop and Automatron – into a single package on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It’ll be sold as a full-priced, $60 game.
What is interesting is that the once hard-to-find Pip-Boy Editions of the game – which Bethesda assured would not be getting another manufacturing run – have somehow magically surfaced. For $99, you can now get your very own Pip-Boy. The new Game of The Year Edition of Pp-Boy won’t come in the same fancy capsule packaging as the original did, but it uses the exact same mould, which means that especially large phones released since 2015 won’t fit in to its housing.
Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed the 70 or so hours I spent playing Fallout 4, and Bethesda should be applauded for trying many new ideas. It would just have been nice if they worked well. The game also suffered from having side quests that weren’t fleshed out. The game had a great atmosphere, and exploring the wasteland was delightful – but being Preston Garvey’s errand boy was unbelievably annoying. Most egregiously, there’s a lack of actual roleplaying, and just about every encounter needs to be settled with bullets.
