Today, publisher Bethesda announced that one of its internally developed games, Fallout 4, will invite players to once again return to the Wasteland on September 26th with Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition. 

Like most GOTY editions, the Fallout 4 one will include all the latest gameplay updates (such as Survival Mode), graphical enhancements, the ability to play mods for free on PC and consoles, plus all the official DLC add-ons.

As you may know, the Bethesda Game Studios title is the fifth major installment in the post-apocalyptic RPG series, and released back on November 10, 2015. Upon release the game was an instant commercial success, selling a massive 12 million units to retailers within the first 24 hours and generating $750 million USD within the same time-frame.

In addition to being a commercial success, the game was also a critical success, winning more than 200 “Best Of” awards — including the 2016 BAFTA and 2016 D.I.C.E. Game of the Year — which is an extra impressive feat given that some of the best games this generation — The Wicther 3: Wild Hunt, Bloodborne, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain — all hit the same year.

As mentioned above, in addition to the fully updated game, the GOTY edition will come with each of it’s official six add-ons: Nuka-World, Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop and Automatron.

Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition will be available on September 26th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC (both digitally and at retail).

But wait there’s more. To celebrate the GOTY edition, Bethesda revealed that it will be doing a second run of Fallout 4 G.O.T.Y. Pip-Boy collector editions. The Pip-Boy Edition includes Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition and will be available in a limited quality for $99.99 USD. It will also release on September 26th, but will be limited to only North America.
