Bethesda announced in their E3 presentation that the release date for Fallout 76 will be the 14th of November, later this year. For the first time ever for a core Bethesda RPG, the game will have a public beta prior to the release. Among the various announcements, Todd Howard also briefly mentioned the game’s Collector’s Edition. Like most major titles, Fallout 76’s Collector’s Edition will be filled with enticing extras; including a wearable helmet.
The Fallout 76 “Power Armor Edition”
Fallout 76’s Collector’s Edition is called the “Power Armor Edition” for one very obvious reason; the centerpiece of the edition is a wearable helmet modeled after Fallout’s iconic T-51 Power Armor Helmet. Not only is it wearable, but the helmet features a fully-functional headlamp. In addition, it includes a voice modulator which aims to accurately replicate the voice modulation which occurs in the game when you wear power armor.
The impressively designed helmet isn’t the only item included in the Power Armor Edition. The edition also includes a full map of Fallout 76’s world, said to be four times the size of the world of Fallout 4, and which even glows in the dark. The map’s glowing appearance strongly resembles the look of Fallout’s map as displayed on a pip-boy screen in the game. The Power Armor Edition also includes plastic figurines, a canvas West-Tek duffel bag, an exclusive case for the game, and the “Tricentennial Edition” bonus digital items.
Bethesda has a history of offering highly impressive extras in their Collector’s Editions. Fallout 4’s Collector’s Edition included a replica Pip-Boy, after all. It seems Bethesda is aiming to raise the bar once again for what they include in such editions. At present, Bethesda have not announced a price for the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition. The game will release on the 14th of November, however, so it will likely be available for pre-order relatively soon.
