There’s a lot of ways to buy Fallout 4, and while war may never change, the feeling of irreparable regret from picking the wrong pre-order bonus can. So here’s a roundup of Fallout 4’s special editions, bundles and pre-order bonuses to help you out.
These sold out almost instantly. Coming across one a Pip-Boy Edition at a retailer would be like happening upon a pack of unicorns playing poker with Santa Claus, and also Benjamin Franklin is there.
On the other hand, Bethesda did put the Pip-Boy Edition back up for sale for just a few hours yesterday, so keep an eye out. This collectible set comes with a Pip-Boy replica, a Pip-Boy pocket guide, the Vault-Tec Perk Poster, and Power Armor Collectible Packaging. Oh, also the game. Fallout 4 is there too.
Fallout 4 Mighty Bundle
This offer comes exclusively from Mighty Ape, a New Zealand online retailer that would be happy to ship internationally should your love of Fallout prove strong enough to cross oceans.
For $119.99 (plus everyone’s favorite: international shipping costs) you’ll get the game, a Fallout Vault Boy Pop! Vinyl figure, a Vault-Tec Perk Poster, and a 96-page hard cover History of Fallout book.
Fallout 4 Gold Bundle
Available from Best Buy, the Fallout 4 Gold Bundle comes with Fallout 4 on either PS4 or Xbox One, the Fallout 4 Season Pass, and Vault Boy socks. You heard me, socks. Because while not everyone may want a T-shirt or poster, we all have feet.

Vault-Tec Perk Poster
Pre-order a physical copy of Fallout 4 (for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC) and get a physical Vault-Tec Perk Poster featuring all 70 perks. This bonus will be available from multiple retailers while supplies last.
Not too long ago, we took a crack at deciphering the perk tree using nothing but clues from the poster. It was far from enlightening.
You’ll get a free download of Fallout 3 if you pre-order Fallout 4 for Xbox One. This is a limited time offer, with no real info on how long the offer will last. If you pre-order Fallout 4 from the Xbox Store, you’ll get a Fallout 3 code sent within 7-10 days. If you pre-order from a retailer, you’ll get your Fallout 3 code when you pick up your physical copy.
Custom Fallout 4 Xbox One Faceplate
Pre-order the Xbox One 1TB Fallout 4 Bundle from GameStop and get an exclusive custom Fallout 4 Xbox One console faceplate. It looks like this:
Xbox One 1TB Fallout 4 Bundle
If you have a severe aversion to receiving free GameStop faceplates, you can always pick up a regular Xbox One 1TB Fallout 4 Bundle at a variety of retailers for $399.
Black Friday Dell Bundle
This Thanksgiving, Dell is offering a 500GB Xbox One bundle that comes with a physical copy of Fallout 4, an extra controller, a Gears of War: Ultimate Edition download, and a 3.5mm headset, all for $299.99. It’s kind of insane.
The set boasts a market value of $469.99, and will be available in “limited quantities” starting November 26 at 6PM EST.
