The Fallout 76 Platinum Edition has everything you could ever want in a collector’s edition…except the game itself

3 min read


Oil sheiks and billionaire TV network tyrants have it all wrong. If you really want to flaunt your wealth, you don’t have your new Ferrari gold-plated or hire Steven Spielberg’s Mexican non-union equivalent Senor Spielbergo to direct a movie about your life. No my friend, if you’re looking to flash some cash, there’s no better way to do so than to buy a video game collector’s edition.

What does it do? What doesn’t it do? Sweet stuff-all, besides looking really nice on a mantle piece for the handful of people who’ll actually know what it is. Heck, you can even go a step further these days, by buying a collector’s edition that doesn’t even include the game its various bits of plastic are based on.

Just like this Platinum Edition for Fallout 76, which includes the following goodies for $115 in the US of A. That’s like a whole case of bottle tops.


Digital Bonus

Unlock your digital version of this guide at game launch on 11/14 with the free code included inside. With interactive maps and a new checklist tool, it’s an essential digital companion to your adventures!  Video Game not included.

Collector’s Case

Safely hold your collectibles in a premium slipcase with foil-accented logo and magnetic closure.

Numbered Art Print

Original Fallout 76 concept art printed on 7.75” x 9.75” high-quality paper.

Three Mini-Journals

Reach for one of these pocket-sized notebooks the next time you need to scribble down a nuclear code! Each journal features Tricentennial-themed cover art and 64 pages of either blank, lined, or grid paper.

Appalachia Regional Postcard Pack

From the wooded slopes of the forests of Appalachia to the noxious crimson expanses of the Cranberry Bog, commemorate your travels through West Virginia with this custom six-postcard pack featuring art from each game region.

Local Brew Beverage Coasters

Labels from all five in-game varieties of beer adorn these durable coasters.

Premium Double-sided Map Poster

Over 850 primary and secondary locations are labeled on this 22.5” x 36” poster map. Wander with purpose using this comprehensive overview of important locales and the collectibles they hold!

Collector’s Edition Guide with Alternate Cover and Treatments

This version of the hardcover guide, with alternate cover art and endsheets, plus a ribbon bookmark and matching endbands, can only be found inside the Platinum Edition.

Inside the Guide

Detailed training, breakdowns of every quest, guides to building and crafting, tips for teaming up, and a meticulous world atlas. It’s the ultimate reference for Fallout 76!

I mean, it’s certainly nice. It ticks all the boxes for a collector’s edition these days: Art, drink coasters and a map of the game world. Jokes aside, for people wanting to try the game first before splurging on a premium collection of branded merch, it does the job. That’s pretty much the whole point of these specific non-game collector’s editions these days, a little something extra for the most dedicated of fans.

If you like this kind of thing, then that’s just fine and dandy. Which is probably why you’re chomping at the bit for that upcoming beta, ahead of the game’s November launch. Tell you what would really make this Platinum Edition stand out though: An authentic bottle of only slightly irradiated Nuka-Cola.

    I properly hate this new fashion of selling SE’s without the game. it’s just milking people. People who claim they would prefer the digital edition anyway, great sell it with a code that is emailed to you. It’s not rocket science

      Couldn’t agree more. A steelbook is often one of the best parts of a collector’s edition. You may only use the disc to install an installer, but damn are those things sexy. There’s something magical about having something you can hold. Whether or not it’s superficial is irrelevant because if you get down to it, the entire thing is superficial.

      In the end, just include a copy of the fucking game, it costs you nothing if, at the very least (like you said), you include a little piece of paper with a code on it…

      I kinda like them. Maybe you buy a game, thinking that you’ll like it..and then you end up loving it and want a bunch of merch. These end up being less than CE’s that include the game, so they’re a nice way for fans to get stuff after the fact. Plus, it gives retail something to actually sell to people who buy digital games.

      The only Collector’s Edition I’ve ever liked was the Skyrim one. I still have the dragon!!! That was epic and well worth the price!
