Called the Fallout Anthology, this PC collection brings together five Fallout games: Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition, and Fallout: New Vegas - Ultimate Edition.

Better yet, the Fallout Anthology comes inside of a Fat Man mini-nuke that features a special bomb sound effect. Bethesda didn't share exactly how big the faux bomb is, but it's large enough to house six games--it also has a spot to store your Fallout 4 disc once it's released on November 10.

No Caption Provided

The $50 Fallout Anthology will go on sale in North America on September 29, in Australia on October 1, and in Europe on October 2. Previously, Bethesda offered a similar collection for the Elder Scrolls series.

Even though I'm a console gamer, nabbing an indie PC game I can't play anywhere else here and there, the Fallout fan in me is reeeally tempted to get this.

Seems like a nice package if I didn't own already most of the games in it.

Amazon has them up for pre order right now. Just got mine.

Damn it... I've owned each one of these since each of their original launch dates, but these bastards know damned well that I'll probably buy them again just to get this nuke. Meh...

I got all the Fallout games already. I just want the box.

The most important question: do the discs come with a steam activation key? Cause I don't have a DVD-rom anymore.

@Darkhol0w: I bought a USB one, but I think I have used it twice in the last 4 years.

Pretty useless putting FO3 in there since most people don't run XP anymore and the game runs like crap on anything after XP. Would be good if they actually fixed the game.

@HAZCHEM88: I've got it installed right now on Windows 8.1 and it works just fine...so I'm not sure what you mean.

@RyanBurnsRed: Yeah, but you need to tweak a whole bunch of stuff first that you shouldn't have to.

@HAZCHEM88: While it should be working out of the gate, FO3's issues can be fixed through ini tweaks.

If I didn't already have the games, I would've gotten this.
It'd be awesome if the mini nuke was sold standalone too though.

Man I wish they could re-work the original ones for console...

Welp, i own all these games, in their original disc forms, on Steam and GoG, and while i hate that Fallout 3 needs to be included in the bunch, i'll pick this up still. Fallout is my favorite series of all time, and i'll take any chance to have the hard discs, especially in a mini nuke.

It's cool, but I want to know if it's really 1:1 scale with a "real" in game mininuke.

@Wraith3: Comparing the width of a standard game case to the width of the slot in the bomb, I'd say it's about right.

mightve been nice some years ago but after getting the first three free through gog and the other two under five bucks each it seems stupid to pay 50 bucks for packaging

They're already sold out on the Bethesda store, and scalpers are already jacking up the price on ebay.

Damn I'm glad I got pipboy edition and fallout anthology collection when I did!

Really hope this means they'll patch Fallout 3 so it can run on Windows 7 and above without crashing constantly

@Spartan_418: search for Fallout 3 unofficial patch, find and install the latest version and crashes and many bugs is pretty much gone.

Think it's insanely sloppy of Bethesda to not care and just let the modders do Bethesdas job, but that's a different story.

Why do you think Bethesda loves modders so much...?

@Spartan_418: Actually, I had this issue, there was a simple system file edit fix, now it doesn't crash for me almost at all... *maybe* after hours and hours of play, and that's only b/c my laptop is crazy old. But I'm on Win 7.

It runs perfectly on Windows 10, with or without heavy graphical mods.

@Spartan_418: it runs perfectly on Win 7, you just need to make couple changes in games config files.

@Saidrex: I've tried several fixes like the one you mentioned and none have worked (I'm on Win 8.1 btw)

And really, if Bethesda is expecting new players to run the games in the collection, they should be able to do it without workarounds or having to downgrade to Vista

@Spartan_418: strange, i have retail, i edited config, installed GFWL disabler mod and played over 50 hours already, i played previously on Win 7 also over 200 hours. So i dunno...

Here's what i edited

C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Games\Fallout3 for Vista/Win 7

Open the fallout.ini and scroll down a little, look for the following line:

bUseThreadedAI=0

Change it to:

bUseThreadedAI=1

Hit enter (so it adds a new line) and add the following line:

iNumHWThreads=2

Save the file and close and you're done.

@Saidrex: yet those changes should have been done by bethesda not guessed by people on the internet.

If I didn't already own all these games, I might be interested. Still, not a bad price for a good set of games.

The fallout anthology preorder is already live on the Bethesda store. I just preordered mine and received the confirmation email. It's $50 plus $10.85 for shipping.

Great for some, but I got the old Fallout games from GoG when they lost the right to sell them and gave them away. I'll buy the newer ones separately some time.
