Need more Fallout 4 in your life? A Game of the Year edition is on the way.

As you might expect, the Fallout 4 game of the year edition comprises the base game, and all of its subsequent DLC, including Nuka-World, Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop, and Automatron. There's potentially hundreds and hundreds of hours of gameplay on offer here, making it an amazing deal for newcomers to the franchise, or those wanting to jump back in for a replay.

For those who are unfamiliar with Fallout 4, think of it as a shooter with strong RPG elements and vast and complex open world gameplay. It also includes survival modes where thirst and hunger play a role, and base building gameplay that allows you to destroy the environment and build your own settlements. While Fallout 4 was a step backwards in terms of the branching narrative the series is known for, the solid gameplay more than makes up for it. The DLC includes new areas such as the watery lands of Far Harbor, and new game mechanics in the form of Automatron, which lets you build your own robot.

Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition will be available on September 26, 2017 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 for $59.99, or $99.99 with a physical re-issue of the Pip-Boy Collector's Edition which includes a toy Pip-Boy wrist-mount for the game's companion app (opens in new tab) (which is astonishingly available for Windows 10 Mobile.)

  • " which is astonishingly available for Windows 10 Mobile "   Hehe, funny and sad at the same time.
  • I was expecting someone to mention the board game  
  • Thanks for that!  a long time ago when I actually played D&D a few times, I can across a rule book for a Fallout Pen and Paper RPG version. I wish I had gotten a chance to play it, it seemed really fun.  
  • Besides the board game by FFG, look for Modiphius Entertainment’s Fallout 4 Tabletop Miniatures game as well.  The rules look to make it more RPG like.
  • I've been waiting for the F4 GOTY all along. As soon as I saw it had a Season Pass I held off buying it entirely. I did play it during the free weekend not so long ago, but I have plenty of games to keep me busy in the meantime. That reminds me, I really should start playing New Vegas, that I've owned it since 2012
  • Even though the game was well worth it with all it's contect, I think you made a good choice. You'll get everything cheap, and the game was just damn good.
  • I waited for this for a long time, but I must say my interest has waned after such a long wait. I'll probably pick it up at $30-40, but Kingdom Hearts will get a buy before this one for me.
  • Gonna wait till its on sale. Game prices are scandalous these days.
