With over half a million words between its front and back cover, the Fallout: New Vegas guide will be the biggest official guide ever released for a Bethesda game. The epic tome is longer than literary classics, such as War and Peace and Les Misérables. In terms of word count, it also blows Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead out of the water, as well as J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Tips, tables, maps, and details on the many rival factions in New Vegas will be included in the guide. You can read more about the guide on Bethesda’s blog, where author David Hodgson takes you on a tour through the Mojave Wasteland.
The Official Strategy Guide will be priced at $24.99. The hardcover Collector’s Edition will cost $34.99. Both versions will be available on October 19 when the game launches for US audiences. Fallout: New Vegas will launch for European audiences on October 22.
