Earlier today, Bethesda revealed the contents of the Fallout: New Vegas Collector’s Edition (pictured above) on their blog. New Vegas takes place three years after Fallout 3, and is developed using the same engine by Obsidian Entertainment.
Obsidian comprises partly of former Black Isle Studios employees, who were responsible for developing the original Fallout and its sequel. Here’s a list of what you’ll find in the Collector’s Edition:
♠ Seven “Lucky 7” poker chips, each designed to represent chips from the major casinos found on the New Vegas strip and throughout the Mojave Wasteland.
♠ A fully customized Fallout: New Vegas deck of cards. Each card in the pack has been uniquely illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game. Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for New Vegas.
♠ A recreation of the game’s highly coveted “Lucky 38” platinum chip.
♠ A hardcover graphic novel “All Roads” that tells the story of some of the characters and events that lead up to Fallout: New Vegas. “All Roads” was written by Chris Avellone, the game’s creative director, and created in conjunction with Dark Horse Comics.
♠ ‘The Making of Fallout: New Vegas’ DVD. This documentary DVD will contain exclusive video content, including interviews with the developers in which they take you from concept to creation and discuss topics such as story, setting, legacy of the Fallout franchise and more.
It’s nice that they’re including a “making of” DVD; the good ones are always enlightening and give you some insight into the development process. You can pre-order the game now in North America, and Bethesda say that European pre-orders should be available in the weeks to come.
