Pre-order Fallout 76 to get beta access, go for the collector's edition to get wearable Power Armor

While everyone debates whether or not Fallout 76 is a "true" Fallout game thanks to its emphasis on online co-op play, there's one feature no one can debate: its obscene collector's edition.

Formally known as the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition, this probably-already-sold-out version of the game comes with:

  • A West Tek Canvas Carrying Bag. Hey, you're gonna need something sizeable to lug all this stuff around.
  • Wearable T-51 Power Armor helmet with built-in voice modulator speaker, functioning LED head lamp, and custom V.A.T.S. sound effects.
  • A 21" x 21" map of Fallout 76's version of West Virginia that, as game director Todd Howard put it during the Bethesda E3 2018 press conference, "glows in the fucking dark".
  • Fallout miniature figurines; tiny plastic versions of the game's Vault Dwellers, Power Armor-wearing soldiers, creatures, and more. Ever wanted to start a Fallout-themed tabletop RPG? Well, now you've got the pieces for it.
  • Tricentennial Edition Steelbook, so you can display your game on your shelf with gleaming, shiny, metal pride.
  • Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition bonus in-game items, including unique customization options for your power armor and weapons, a Vault Boy mascot head, Patriotic Uncle Sam outfit, Celebratory Vault Boy Saluting emote, First-Class Tricentennial Workshop Posters, and a Tricentennial Commemorative Photo Frame.

However, arguably the coolest bonus is one available to anyone who pre-orders any edition of Fallout 76: beta access. True, we don't know quite when the beta will start, but with Fallout 76 launching on November 14, 2018, it surely can't be too far away.
