Bethesda is expecting Fallout 4 to be their biggest release ever, and they aren’t kidding. The studio is going all out with Fallout fever this year, with Fallout Shelter on mobile devices, revisiting the classic games in the series, and of course, with the release of Fallout 4 on November 10th.
However, Bethesda’s Fallout push doesn’t end there. Fans that are looking to completely and utterly engross themselves in the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout will have yet another means to do so on November 10th. No, it’s not in the form of another video game, but rather, a book.
As announced by Bethesda today, Dark Horse Comics will be publishing The Art of Fallout 4 for a release on November 10th. The Art of Fallout 4 will feature never-before-seen concept art for the various locations, characters, and items in the game, as well as messages from the developers at Bethesda.
While many retailers will be carrying the regular version of The Art of Fallout 4, which retails for $28, a special limited edition version will be available to purchase from the Bethesda Store. If it’s anything like the Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4, though, fans expect it to sell out rather quickly. Bethesda has yet to announce how much this particular version of the art book will cost, or what will be so special about it. In the meantime, take a look at the cover art for The Art of Fallout 4:
The Art of Fallout 4 art book is yet another piece of merchandise in Bethesda’s full-on Fallout assault. This all kicked off with the reveal of Fallout 4 leading up to E3 2015, and has continued with the highly successful Fallout Shelter mobile game (which has already been played for more than 29 million hours), as well with the Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4, and the Fallout Anthology, which collects all the previous games in the series inside of a mini-nuke.
Bethesda is definitely making sure that 2015 is remembered as the year of Fallout, and this art book collaboration with Dark Horse Comics is another way of driving that point home. Despite some criticisms about the game’s graphics, Fallout 4 is easily one of the most anticipated games of the entire year, and the hype surrounding it is at an all-time high. If Bethesda can keep the momentum going and deliver a game that lives up to the hype, and we can see no reason why it won’t, then Fallout 4 could truly be their biggest release yet.
