For those of us that still feel the odd burst of nostalgia for adventures through the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Washington D.C, Boston and Las Vegas, fear not- Bethesda have got our backs. The company has announced that it will be releasing the Fallout Legacy Collection, which will contain a colossal six games for Fallout fans to sink their teeth into.
The trio of Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout 4 have been amongst the most popular games to have rolled off of the production lines at Bethesda, and the Legacy Collection offers the chance to revisit these now-iconic worlds in all their glory.
The prospect of ploughing through these familiar quests is tantalising enough, but Bethesda are treating customers by including the game of the year versions of Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, as well as the ultimate edition of New Vegas, meaning that they will also contain all accompanying DLC.
This means that players are not limited to the irradiated Capital Wasteland of Fallout 3, and can return to the frozen peaks of Alaska in Operation Anchorage and the hostile alien spacecraft at the centre of Mothership Zeta.
The Legacy Collection will also include the original Fallout title, as well as Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel.
As well as the countless hours that could be spent delving back into these more popular titles, Bethesda are making sure to provide for the more hardcore Fallout fans. The Legacy Collection will also include the original Fallout title, as well as Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel.
These predecessors to the more renowned games in the series may be less well-known, but for those invested in the series, it offers a unique opportunity to sample some Fallout history by revisiting the games that helped inspire some of the most popular games of the 21st century.
The only complaint is that, as a PC edition for the UK and Germany only, this huge collection will receive a rather limited release. However, if this release is indeed as popular as expected, Bethesda may well be tempted to dispel some of the negativity that surrounded Fallout 76 by opting for a wider release in the future.
