Several new Fallout 4 release details have been confirmed. And while they don’t include newfound Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition stock, they should still be exciting to those that are excited about Bethesda’s next installment in the popular video game series.
When Bethesda confirmed Fallout 4 at E3 2015 in June it confirmed a number of key details for Xbox One, PS4 and PC users. Included in the initial announcement were the Fallout 4 release date (November 10th), the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition (extremely hard to find) and a slew of Fallout 4 gameplay details including information about character creation, modding and crafting.
We’ve seen new and important Fallout 4 gameplay details emerge including information about weapons, characters, perks, and more. We’ve seen the company confirm several special edition items including a Fallout 4 Pipbox Xbox One and a rare Xbox One controller. We’ve also seen a number of solid Fallout 4 details emerge.
With months to go before the Fallout 4 release date, we expect details to continue to pour out of Bethesda and its partners and today we have several more Fallout 4 release details to share with Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 owners.Bethesda and its partners have confirmed several new Fallout 4 release details including a brand new Fallout 4 bundle. In addition, Bethesda’s Pete Hines has also confirmed some bad news for those hoping for a new collectors edition.
Fallout 4 Steelbook Pack
UK retailer GAME has confirmed a brand new Fallout 4 bundle ahead of the game’s release on November 10th.
The Fallout 4 Steelbook Pack comes with a copy of Fallout 4 for PS4, Xbox One and PC but it also comes with some other collectors items. Included in the bundle are a steelbook case for the game and several Fallout 4 themed postcards.
It’s not as exciting as the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition bundle but it’s still worth a look if you live in the UK and you want more than just a copy of the game.
Unfortunately, it looks like this bundle will be exclusive to GAME and so we don’t expect this exact bundle to appear at any other retailers ahead of release.
Fallout 4 Humble Bundle
Humble Bundle has started selling the PC version of Fallout 4. And while the company isn’t offering a huge deal on the $60 game, it’s important to note that Humble Bundle’s Fallout 4 offer comes with a nice perk.
If you buy a copy of PC Fallout 4 through them, you’ll be able to donate 10% of your purchase to several notable charities including American Red Cross, charity: water, Wikimedia, Child’s Play, and more. The company offers a database of more than a thousand different charities so you’ll have a ton of options at your disposal.
If you’re willing to shell out the full $60 for the regular version of the game, this is a place that’s worthy of your consideration.
No More Fallout 4 Special Editions
If you’ve been waiting for another special version of Fallout 4 to arrive, you’re going to be waiting for a long time it seems.

In response to a question about upcoming special edition versions of Fallout 4, Pete Hines affirmed that the company will only be releasing two official versions of Fallout 4: The standard version and the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition.
So if you want something more than a PipBoy or the standard version of the game, you’ll have to opt for one of the Fallout 4 bundles that tack on everything from collectible statues to postcards.
You might also want to sign up for the Fallout 4 LootCrate. We haven’t seen LootCrate reveal any more official details but we’ve heard from a source that supplies are going to be extremely limited. We’re talking low thousands.
Fallout 4 Power Armor
Toy manufacturer threezero has confirmed plans to release a unique Fallout 4 power armor statue that will almost certainly be of interest to those that are huge fans of the Fallout series and its unique armor classes.
We aren’t sure when the company will release the beautifully crafted statue but it’s coming and you’ll want to follow threezero and the official Fallout Twitter accounts for details.
Fallout 4 Names
And finally, a quick note about the name’s you’ll be able to choose for your Vault Dweller in Fallout 4.
Bethesda’s recorded 1,000 of the most popular names for use in-game. There are obviously more than 1,000 names in use on planet earth which means that we probably won’t see every single name included in Fallout 4. And it looks like we won’t have a list of names ahead of the Fallout 4 release.
Hines says that he hasn’t seen the list of names and that there’s a good chance the company won’t release it ahead of the game’s arrival. This won’t be a big deal for most people but it’s something to keep in mind as we push closer to the game’s release.
Bethesda has already said that it doesn’t plan to confirm any more plot elements ahead of release and this could fall under that umbrella.
Fallout 4 Xbox One Controller
We've seen a ton of Fallout 4 accessories emerge though this one should be especially exciting for Xbox One users.
Microsoft just announced a brand new ultra rare Fallout 4 Xbox One controller. The controller is tied into PAX Prime 2015 and the company is going to be offering a couple of different ways to win the controller ahead of the game's release in November.
If you plan to attend PAX Prime 2015, you'll want to snap a photo. Then you'll want to share that photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtags #xboxsweepstakes and #xbox.
If you can't make it to PAX, you'll need to retweet a specified tweet from Microsoft's Xbox Twitter account. One you do that, you'll enter into the contest for a chance to win the Fallout 4 controller. The contest will run from August 28th to August 31st.
