A surprise showed up at my doorstep last night: the Fallout ’76 “power armor” edition, arriving ahead of the game’s official launch at 12:01am tomorrow morning (Wednesday, November 14). The PC version’s $200 special edition has been sold out at many retailers for quite some time, as it was announced well before the game began receiving more public scrutiny. [Update: GameStop is still selling the console version of the set.]
But even though its sticker price includes a DLC-loaded version of the retail game, most of its cost is made up of Fallout series swag. Even if you’re wary about the game’s buggy beta period, is there still enough here to justify the insane cost for a series diehard?
