Fallout 4 GOTY and Pip-Boy Editions Coming September 26

Bethesda has announced both a Game of the Year Edition and a returning Pip-Boy Edition for Fallout 4.

Both versions will release next month, on September 26th across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Pip-Boy Edition, exclusive to North American retailers, also includes the GOTY version of the game, which has all its post-launch downloadable content included.

It’s worth mentioning the GOTY edition of Fallout 4 will also come with all the latest updates to the game, including mod support, Survival mode, and more. The GOTY edition of the game will cost your typical retail tag, however the Pip-Boy Edition will run you $99.99.

A virtual-reality version of Fallout 4 is in the works, for the HTC Vive – you can read more about that here. In case you missed it, you can find our review for Fallout 4 here (we recommend it!).

    This is why you don’t buy AAA games day 1.

  • catazxy

    Peh, they did a good job ruining the fallout franchise, and now they want us to buy an empty husk with a bow on top

  • Mechonis

    Good thing I don’t care since Beth can’t write a story worth a shit

  • Zanard Bell

    I’ll buy that for a dollar.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Shit RPG, but it could be a fun game to screw around in when it’s 75% off. Are there even any mods that attempt to fix the garbage roleplaying mechanics?

    I don’t know about fixing the roleplaying mechanics specifically, but I tend to say the best way to make FO4 good is to remove everything story and quest related and just let you roam, explore, survive, etc. because the writing is garbage and the main questline is boring, constraining and doesn’t make any sense. Turns out there’s a mod that pretty much does remove all the story elements and makes the game harsher, it’s called Frost, but it’s still in early development and I haven’t tested it because I want to let it cook for a bit longer. It might be worth keeping an eye on.


    Agreed. It’s garbage.

  • Madbrainbox

    Spoiler alert:The game is still shit.

  • I already got this shitty game and all the DLC back when it was heavily discounted during the steam summer sale.

  • Nagato

    Less than 30 bucks for Wolf 2 on launch doesn’t sound too bad; after that I can just wait for the season pass to be discounted for a tenner later on.

  • Mr0303

    How is it less than 30 on launch?

  • Nagato


    One of the main wonders of PC gaming nowdays, and why digital distribution isn’t seen as too much of an evil on there.

    All legit too, so you don’t need to question how exactly they managed to get those keys or anything.

  • Mr0303

    Yeah, I prefer physical releases. Actually owning one’s games is important to me. Plus 26 quid is about $34.

    That aside no matter what the price is season passes are a bad practice and shouldn’t be supported.

  • Matz

    “Hi there, my name is Not Todd Howard and I’m happy to see these news, Fallout 4 is the second best RPG only surpassed by Skyrim, I’m buying the 3 versions and you should do the same thing, and since you’re at it you should consider getting the Switch version of Skyrim now with integrated Amiibo functionality so you can use Link’s Costume and the Master Sword. What are you waiting to get these great games? Don’t forget to support the modding community by buying some super exclusive mods with our… I mean with Bethesda’s Creation Club, that way you can pay for the great efforts put by the modding community and Bethesda for making some great games”


  • Goro Majima

    Yeah you’re used to buying shitty shovelware ports during steam sales

  • sanic

    I go into games wanting to like them but this game just made me want to play new vegas, and the dlc was pretty crap nuka world was the most tolerable because I enjoyed getting new cola types and the weird booby trapped house in the map corner.

  • I mostly get shovelware through steamgifts and random steam bundles.

  • You don’t really own physical games. You just own the license. The only games you “own” are DRM free games.

  • Mr0303

    You do own physical games. In fact they give you true ownership. You can resell them and treat them as any other product.

  • reselling it doesn’t men you own game disk as it still has DRM. I can resell steam keys if I wanted to. You own the licenses to the physical product you brought though.

  • Sean Sharpe

    Fallout: Cascadia isn’t out yet… And won’t be outside the PC to my knowledge but it’s aiming to be New Vegas style… Supposedly even added skills back. But it’s more a total conversion.

  • Sean Sharpe

    I’m not a fan of Frost for the same reason I’m not a fan of Dust before it. It focuses a little too much on the Apocalypse aspect and Fallout (at least to me) has always been about rebuilding. Part of the reason I hated Fallout 3 so much, back in the day.

  • Mr0303

    The only DRM game disks have is the copy protection. You can resell the original disk, but not any copies you made of it.

    “I can resell steam keys if I wanted to.” – but to do so, you can not use them yourself. In which case you don’t own the game, but the right to unlock access to it once. Inversely with physical games you have unlimited access to the game until you decide to sell it.

  • DrearierSpider

    I consider what You’d did to this franchise to be one of the worst things to ever happen in gaming.

  • Nagato

    I think he meant the DRM-box the game is locked to itself, limiting present and future use of the game yo are supposed to fully own.

    As for reselling Steam keys, you’re definitely right on that front, but we also both know that reselling physical console games is generally a loser’s game: you pay anywhere between 30 and 60 bucks depending on when you buy it, and by the time you want to sell the game usually is only still worth a tenner at most.

    In my eyes that turns the experience of “owning” a game into more of an expensive renting period than anything else.

  • Mr0303

    “I think he meant the DRM-box the game is locked to itself” – what do you mean by this? The platform the game is running on is not DRM. It’s an issue of compatibility and application.

    “but we also both know that reselling physical console games is generally a loser’s game” – doesn’t matter – the devaluation of a product is a natural thing. Inversely as time goes by it may become a collector’s item and increase in price.

    “In my eyes that turns the experience of “owning” a game into more of an expensive renting period than anything else.” – you can put all the quotation marks you want, it won’t make what you are saying valid. You own the game printed on the disc and can treat it as any other item you own. It’s true ownership of games.
