Bethesda Game Studios released Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC today. The edition includes the original award-winning apocalyptic action-RPG from 2015, and all post-release DLC, listed here in order of size:
- Far Harbor – adds a new island map to explore, dozens of quests and more content for fan-favorite companion Nick Valentine
- Nuka-World – set in an abandoned theme park that allows the player to join forces with the infamous Raiders
- Automatron – features a new questline and the ability to craft a complex array of robot companions
- Vault-Tec Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, and Wasteland Workshop, which allow players to craft settlements with a variety of new assets and gameplay features
Fallout 4 GOTY Edition also includes Survival Mode, a difficulty mode implemented in the original release through a patch. Survival Mode requires players to keep track of needs such as hunger, thirst, and fatigue, and features much stronger enemies and save game limitations.
The GOTY Edition offers new graphical enhancements and retains its compatibility with player-made modifications. Bethesda Game Studios did not mention its controversial paid mods program, Creation Club, in press materials, but it can be assumed that Fallout 4 GOTY will be compatible with and encourage purchase of the content.
Bethesda Game Studios is also planning to release Fallout 4 GOTY Pip-Boy collector edition at select retailers in North America. The collector edition features Fallout 4 GOTY, a wearable plastic Pip-Boy, a Pip-Boy guidebook, and a poster depicting the game’s Perk system. It will retail for $99.99.
On its own, Fallout 4 GOTY Edition is available now for $59.99.
