Fallout 4 GOTY Edition Black Friday 2018 Best Deals: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Bethesda's open world RPG goes on sale for all platforms for Black Friday.
Black Friday 2018 is officially here, and it's brought some surprise deals that we weren't expecting on the new game Fallout 76, the series' first attempt as an online multiplayer action-RPG. But for those more interested in single-player, 76's predecessor is seeing some action during the ongoing Black Friday sales. Specifically, you can find Fallout 4: Game Of The Year Edition on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on sale.
In addition to sales for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, SoulCalibur VI, and God of War, Fallout 4 is one of many games that you can find during the Black Friday 2018 sale. We've spotted discounts for Fallout 4: Game Of The Year Edition on Best Buy, PlayStation Store, Target, and Walmart--all in the mid-$20 range for the Black Friday sale. In addition to the GOTY release, the base version of Fallout 4 is also on sale at Target for the low price of $12, making it a solid deal for anyone looking to get into the game for cheap. If you want to get shopping right away, the best prices on the PS4 and Xbox One versions are $24 on PSN and Xbox Live.
Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition is a collection of all the released content from the game, which includes major expansions Far Harbor and Nuka World. Much other Bethesda titles, Fallout 4 focused on allowing players to create their own story within an open world. Set in post-apocalyptic Boston, you play as the Lone Survivor of Vault 111, who must find his son after being in suspended animation for more than 200 years. In typical Fallout fashion, you'll explore a setting that shows off shades of 1950's sci-fi--post nuclear--and acquire a set of weapons that can vaporize or blow your enemies to pieces. Over the course of your adventure, you'll level up and make important decisions about which characters you should align with or go against.
In our review of Fallout 4 back in 2015, managing editor Peter Brown stated: "In the grand scheme of things, Fallout 4's minor issues pale in comparison to its successes. When you put the controller down, you think about the friend you betrayed to benefit another, the shifting tide of an incredible battle, or the moment you opened a drawer and found someone's discarded effects, making you wonder how they felt before the bombs fell. In moments like these, Fallout 4 can be an intoxicating experience. You're often forced to sacrifice something--a relationship, a lucrative opportunity, or your health--to make gains elsewhere. And the deeper down the rabbit hole you go, the more you wonder: what if I chose a different path? You second guess yourself, not just because you had other options, but because you aren't sure if you did the right thing. The fact that your decisions stick with you after walking away from the game is a testament to the great storytelling on hand. Fallout 4 is an argument for substance over style, and an excellent addition to the revered open-world series."
This set of deals is just one of many happening on Black Friday 2018. Be sure to to keep up with all of our Black Friday 2018 coverage on GameSpot.
