Your first look at the Fallout: New Vegas Collector’s Edition

fnv_collector_edition-generic.jpg

The Top Men working on the Fallout: New Vegas Collector’s Edition have been hard at work on a pack that will trump your expectations, and today we can finally share the first details with you guys.

As you can tell from the above image, every extra has been crafted to resemble items from the world of New Vegas, from the distressed deluxe box to the poker chip recreations. On top of that, this stuff won’t just look great on your shelf — it’s also surprisingly functional. Did we mention the hardcover Fallout comic, and the full deck of New Vegas-themed playing cards?

The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the CE will all include the following:

  • Seven “Lucky 7″ poker chips, each designed to represent chips from the major casinos found on the New Vegas strip and throughout the Mojave Wasteland.
  • A fully customized Fallout: New Vegas deck of cards. Each card in the pack has been uniquely illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game. Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for New Vegas.
  • A recreation of the game’s highly coveted “Lucky 38″ platinum chip.
  • A hardcover graphic novel “All Roads” that tells the story of some of the characters and events that lead up to Fallout: New Vegas. “All Roads” was written by Chris Avellone, the game’s creative director, and created in conjunction with Dark Horse Comics.
  • “The Making of Fallout: New Vegas” DVD. This documentary DVD will contain exclusive video content, including interviews with the developers in which they take you from concept to creation and discuss topics such as story, setting, legacy of the Fallout franchise and more.

North Americans can pre-order at any participating retailer — like GameStop — starting today. European pre-orders will be available throughout Europe in the weeks to come.

  1. SWEET!
    Looks like it’s time for me to go out and upgrade my current reserve to a Collectors Edition copy.

    Nothing as great as getting a game on release day, and being handed the “Mega Ultra Bundle”.

  2. Probably going to get this, I never get collector’s editions let alone limited edition. But this one looks pretty good, I really like the hardback book. It sounds interesting. Plus, the DVD sounds good too. I could care less about the cards or poker chip. Only thing that has kept from buying the past is the price. Hoping this will change my mind on special editions.

  3. GREAT BETHESDA GOD TODD HOWARD!!! This has got to be the bestest Collectors Edition! Looks like FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS will be the first game i ever pre-order and the second most exciting Collectors Edition since MORROWIND.

    Wow even the screenshot makes for a fantastic desktop wallpaper :D

    Thank you Bethesda for the adrenaline hype injection for a work of true quality workmanship. Wowzers this hot!

  4. New Vegas here I come! I am so freakin’ stoked for this to drop. Can’t wait to see what they’ll have goin’ on at E3!

  5. Oh god, this is incredible!I’m wet with anticipation, can’t wait for the day us Europeans will be able to pre-order.Thank you for creating such a fantastic Collector’s Edition!

  6. Incredible CE.
    Now this is the real CE full of great things. Not some cheap tactics with some garbage plus in-game digital “bonus” (just ripped from regular editions to make CE looks decent) as many other publishers go this days. Keep it up!

    Dear Bethfan!

    So You want to say GREAT OBSIDIAN GOD J E SAWYER!!! Obsidian making the new fallout game not Bethesda. I think you have no idea what you want to buy. [Intelligence]Just one question. Have you ever played the first two fallout? I dont think so..

  8. hope this game kicks ass…i want fallout to make games for xbox 360 only…lol…sorry guys im just being selfish here…

  9. hey if any of the bethesa company people are reading this….could you guys perhaps throw in a fallout tshirt with the collectors edition pack? i absolutely love fallout 3 and i ordered new vegas CE today…i would wear that tshirt everywhere!!!!

  10. and i cant wait 2 visit the casino playing caravan wf my fellow ghouls, traders, slavers and winning all the bottlecaps!!!!

  11. Must be expensive for Bethesda to ship it across the atlantic! Price in the U.S 69.99$ for the PC-version and 115,85$ here for the PC version! Now that’s what I call a difference :-)

  12. To be honest, this CE jsut doesn’t seem worth it. At all. I prefer games where you actually get something in-game rather than crap poker chips and a decent novel. I’ll definately be downgrading my pre-order.

  13. The collector’s edition looks great! I think I’m going to buy this, my 1st Fallout Collector’s Edition since I played Fallout 1 – Fallout 3.

    However, will the Fallout New Vegas Collector’s Edition be released on the Xbox 360 for Asia/Japan? Or Will the PC DVD be released in the Region 3 format? Otherwise it will be a pity as any fan who is using ‘Asia coded’ Xbox 360s or DVDs will be ‘barred/banned’ from the collector’s edition due to regional incompatibility….

    Thanks for creating the game!

  14. Will Fallout: New Vegas have a survival eddition with a cool suprize or is the collecter’s eddition the only special for this game? Because for a snow globe, bobble head, something more and the collecters eddition i would pay £130-£150 to have it and I know for a fact that every one would buy it.
