Fallout 4 is getting a Game of the Year Edition

1 min read


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.

    Sooo … elephant in the room. Will GotY have the VR version as well?

    If not they can GTFO.

      Nope. That’ll likely be a separate game purchase.

        Yep screw them. Not paying an additional R800 to get the same game in VR.

    I put a lot of hours into fallout4. I explored as much as I could, but there weren’t many Easter eggs and a lot of the time i could’ve spent playing minecraft.

    Only reason to get this is if you’ve never played Fallout 4.

        I would grab that in a heartbeat if it were on PS4. Even though I’ve played through it so many times that I nearly have it memorised.

    This is exactly why I don’t buy Day 1 releases from Bethesda/Ubisoft/EA…There is ALWAYS a GoTY edition or “Complete” edition at some point. Looks like I can now pick up Fallout 4.
