“Fallout 4” is one of the most anticipated games of 2015, so to capitalize on the game's popularity, publisher Bethesda Software has announced the “Fallout Anthology,” which features every “Fallout” game for the PC in one miniature bomb case. It's set for release this coming September. Since these include all of the previous “Fallout” games before they hit consoles, it is doubtful that this limited collection will be coming to either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One anytime soon.
The games included in the anthology are listed in the Bethesda store and include the first “Fallout” game, its sequel “Fallout 2,” the rare “Fallout Tactics” and two of the most recent titles: “Fallout 3” and “Fallout: New Vegas.” This way, hardcore fans of the franchise will be able to play the game from start to finish, witnessing and experiencing the entire “Fallout” saga on the PC.
Not only will the “Fallout Anthology” feature every game in the series so far, but it will also have Game of the Year editions for “Fallout 3” and “Fallout: New Vegas.” This ensures that fans who decide to purchase the collection will get a complete experience and won’t have to spend money on any extra downloadable content.
A report from Engadget has also uncovered that the nuclear bomb case of the “Fallout Anthology” has an extra slot that’s empty, which means that fans can put “Fallout 4” in it to complete the collection. The Anthology comes out on September 29 in North America, so fans will have a little over a month to finish all the “Fallout” games before putting “Fallout 4” in the case, should they choose to do so.
So far no price tag has been given for the “Fallout Anthology,” but Best Buy will let fans pre-order the game for $50 -- a bargain, considering it has four different “Fallout” games. Fans will be able to play the “Fallout Anthology” on Sept. 29 for the PC, while “Fallout 4” gets a Nov. 10 release date for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC, with a number of extras available to those who decide to pre-order the game.
