Fallout 4 Release Date: 5 Things to Expect & 5 Things Not To

With the Fallout 4 release date just a few short weeks away, we want to take a look at a few things we’re expecting from the highly anticipated release on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

In June, Bethesda finally confirmed a follow-up to its 2008 smash hit. There, the company outlined some of the most important details including hints about gameplay, the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition and the Fallout 4 release date.

In the weeks since the initial unveiling, Bethesda and its partners have stayed busy. Over the past two weeks, Bethesda has confirmed some of the most important details. We’ve heard about the Fallout 4 release time, the Fallout 4 file size on PS4 and Xbox One, the PC specs, new Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition stock, and a whole lot more.

Expect Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition Stock

Expect Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition Stock

Earlier this month, Bethesda started taking new pre-orders for the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition. Unfortunately, stock evaporated quickly and we're back to square one here in the United States. 

Retailers aren't taking pre-orders and Bethesda has already said that it won't be making any more Pip Boys to meet demand. That said, you can expect new Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition stock to emerge in and around the November 10th release date. 

In addition to new stock at resellers like eBay, you can expect some retailers to offer new stock that was cancelled. Bethesda hasn't confirmed this move but it has been hinting at it and there's a good chance we'll see a retailer like Walmart offer some units after the release date comes and goes.

We don't expect to see a whole lot of $120 Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition stock but we'd be surprised if retailers didn't take at least a few orders. 

If you live outside of the United States, your chances of acquiring one for face value are far greater. We continue to see stock emerge ahead of the game's release date and we're confident that there will be stock available in and around November 10th. You might need to dig a little bit but you should find some.
