Fallout 4 is, to put it lightly, a huge deal. Ever since its official E3 reveal, Bethesda’s newest installment in their post-apocalyptic RPG series has been in the news almost daily, as fans eagerly anticipate the game’s release. That kind of fervent devotion isn’t won over easily, but the Fallout series has earned plenty of goodwill with gamers optimistic about each new entry. Whether it’s Fallout‘s unique Perk skill system or its blend of humor and horror that breathes life into its often desolate landscape, Fallout is a prime example of a franchise that understands what its fans while still finding ways to evolve.
In the case of Fallout 4, the growing process is taking place both inside and outside of the game, in ways that often mirror each other. While the game’s director, Todd Howard, has discussed how the in-game loot in Fallout 4 will be much more important this go around, Bethesda announced that the studio will offer fans a shot at some out of game collectibles as well, courtesy of Loot Crate. Since then, gamers have been eager to get a sneak peak at what they can expect.
Well, Loot Crate took to social media today to clue gamers in on a couple of the offerings they’ll receive in early November should they choose to pre-order the Fallout 4 crate. The crate, which will feature seven unique items tied to the story of Fallout 4, has now had two of those collectibles revealed: a Vault 111 hoodie, made to look similar to the jumpsuit of the protagonist in the game, and a plush Dogmeat, the Sole Survivor’s canine companion. While the other five remain a closely guarded secret for now, the price of the Fallout 4 crate is not. United States customers can expect to pay $100 to pre-order, while international fans will have to pay $130.
Those who have been swayed already won’t have to wait long before they get the chance to give Loot Crate their money, as the limited edition collection will go on sale at 12pm Pacific tomorrow and will run until inventory is depleted. If the Pip Boy Edition of Fallout 4 is any indication of how quickly fans will pounce on the opportunity, odds are supplies of the crate aren’t going to last very long.
While this could arguably be the highest profile limited edition that Loot Crate has offered thus far, it’s not the only one. The company already partnered up with Nintendo to develop the popular Amiibo Crates, and will be turning its attention to Mass Effect once the Fallout 4 crates have all been delivered. It’s become abundantly clear that collectibles and limited editions are a huge part of video game culture, and being able to offer dedicated fans a number of cool, unique items is a sure way to ensure their continued support.
