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 hoursyesterday, 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.

Great War 2015 T-Shirt

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.
Xbox One 1TB Fallout 4 Bundle
If you have a severe aversion to receiving free GameSpot 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.
Aside from preorder bonuses and bundle goodies, there’s plenty of Fallout swag hitting shelves this month. Fallout beer is making it’s way to Amazon, Nuka Cola Quantum will be appearing at Target, and if you’re not into beverages, check out the Fallout C.H.A.T. app for iOS and Android.
