Fallout: New Vegas pre-order bonuses detailed

Will you bet on New Vegas for the sake of one of four digital bonus packs?

TODO alt text

Pre-order Fallout: New Vegas through GameStop, Amazon, Steam, Walmart or Best Buy, and get... a bunch of stuff! None of it looks to be super exclusive - largely armor and usable items - but it'll give you a little leg up and a new look if you want it. There are four different packs - the details of each, in Bethesda's words, are below:

The Classic Pack (GameStop):

  • Armored Vault 13 Suit - Extensively patched up and dotted with piecemeal armor, this outfit is an homage to the classic ending of the original Fallout. Vault 13
  • Canteen - This handy device is useful for staving off dehydration and providing a small amount of healing in the Mojave Wasteland.
  • Weathered 10mm Pistol - A well-worn 10mm pistol that packs an extra punch despite its modest size.
  • 5 Stimpaks - Food and water are good for long-term healing, but when the fighting is fierce, Stimpaks help keep Wastelanders upright.

The Tribal Pack (Amazon):

  • Tribal Raiding Armor - Pieced together from scraps of armor, this outfit provides protection without impacting mobility.
  • Broad Machete - This heavy-bladed melee weapon does high damage against limbs and can quickly deal out a flurry of attacks.
  • 5 Bleak Venom doses - Useful on any Melee Weapon, Bleak Venom makes short of work of most living targets.
  • 10 Throwing Spears - If you would like to silently pin an enemy's head to a wall, Throwing Spears are the way to do it.

The Caravan Pack (Steam and Walmart):

  • Lightweight Leather Armor - This hand-modified suit of leather armor reduces its overall weight without impacting its ability to protect.
  • Sturdy Caravan Shotgun - Despite its rough appearance, this Caravan Shotgun will reliably fire 20 gauge shells until the Brahmin come home.
  • 4 Repair Kits - Useful for repairing any outfit or weapon, Repair Kits are a valuable tool for any caravaner.
  • Binoculars - The Mojave Wasteland is a dangerous place, but with these trusty Binoculars you%26rsquo;ll be able to spot trouble coming.

The Mercenary Pack (Best Buy):

  • Lightweight Metal Armor - Modified for long-range travel, this Metal Armor sacrifices some protection for mobility and overall weight.
  • Mercenary%26rsquo;s Grenade Rifle - Though similar to other 40mm Grenade Rifles in the Mojave Wasteland, this model has a faster reload cycle.
  • 3 Super Stimpaks - When you absolutely, positively, need to keep your blood inside your body, Super Stimpaks fix you up in no time
  • 3 Doctors Bags - Mercenaries and broken limbs go together like Iguana-on-a-Stick and Nuka Cola. Thankfully, these Doctors Bags take a bit of sting out of the inevitable crushed skull

So what do you think? Are you ready to make the call now so you can score some extra stuff, or would you rather wait for the reviews? And if you are planning to pre-order - which pack is the one for you? We'd take the Tribal Pack, for the machete.
