For those who have already pre-ordered Fallout 4, prepare to be jealous. Best Buy is now offering something called Fallout 4: Gold Edition which is a package that includes the full game, the season pass and some super awesome Vault Boy socks all for $85.
If socks aren’t your thing, then it’s worth noting that the bundle nets you a $5 discount between the main game ($60) and the season pass ($30). Unfortunately, the Gold Edition is only being offered for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so PC players will, unfortunately, be unable to get in on the deal.
Bethesda appears to be ramping up their already stellar efforts to advertise Fallout 4 by recently kicking off The Great War sale on the Bethesda Store website, unveiling loads of new gear at discount prices. They’ve also released an amazing live action trailer as well as a series of mini videos detailing the leveling mechanics of S.P.E.C.I.A.L.
Fallout 4 will release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 10, 2015.
Quick Take: The socks are sweet looking, but one of the problems you could argue with the Gold Edition package is that it forces the consumer to invest in the game’s Season Pass. Season Passes are already a somewhat controversial practice to those in the gaming population, but it doesn’t seem to stop people from buying it. Fortunately, Bethesda has a long standing reputation of delivering the goods on their biggest projects, and Fallout 4 is looking like it will continue that trend.
