It's a good day for Fallout megafans, as long as you prefer to play on Windows PC. Bethesda Softworks is celebrating the impending release of the long-awaited Fallout live action TV show on Amazon Prime with the announcement of a new, updated Fallout anthology collection. Dubbed the Fallout S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Anthology, the collection updates the original with new Fallout 76-inspired Perk cards and even more Fallout goodies.

Announced via Bethesda.net, the Fallout S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Anthology is slated to release on April 11, 2024 (the day before the first episode of the Fallout TV show airs), and should go up for preorder at various retailers starting today.

Overall, this collection looks pretty similar to the original Fallout Anthology released nearly nine years ago, but there are some notable changes here. Yes, the mini nuke container has returned, but the cards have been updated to match the style of Fallout 76. What's more, there are two new games included in this collection, making seven Fallout titles in total. All-in-all, you get:

  • Mini nuke container with audible bomb sound
  • Seven cards inspired by Fallout 76 Perks
  • Windows PC codes for the following Fallout games:
    • Fallout
    • Fallout 2
    • Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition
    • Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition
    • Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition
    • Fallout 76
    • Fallout Tactics

That's a whole lot of some of the best PC games ever released! If you purchased the last collection for Bethesda's legendary post-apocalyptic RPG series, you likely don't need to consider this one. For those that missed the boat, however, this is a great way to secure the entire Fallout series in one fell swoop (and get a nice collectible to boot). Unfortunately, this collection is only for Windows PC, with no Xbox console version. That makes sense, considering that three of these Fallout games aren't available on Xbox, but you can't blame one for hoping for some ports.

The best part about this collection is the price. You can pick the Fallout S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Anthology up for just $60 at Bethesda Gear Shop, which is a steal considering the price of all these games combined and how much the original anthology (and even just the mini nuke container) goes for these days. It should also go up for preorder at other retailers in the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, you can prepare yourself for the Fallout TV show by checking out its first trailer.
