[ Game -> Update ] - More info on Company: Obsidian Entertainment | More info on Game: Fallout: New Vegas

Pre-order Fallout: New Vegas from a set of retailers and get some new outfits which will probably be available via mods/cheatcodes anyways:

We’re pleased to announce Fallout: New Vegas digital pre-order packs are now available in North America through participating retailers and will be available worldwide soon. The Classic, Tribal, Caravan, and Mercenary packs each contain in-game items offered exclusively through GameStop, Amazon, Steam, Walmart and Best Buy.

More details after the break…

The Classic Pack (pictured above), available when you pre-order through GameStop, contains:

  • Armored Vault 13 Suit – Extensively patched up and dotted with piecemeal armor, this outfit is an homage to the classic ending of the original Fallout.
  • Vault 13 Canteen – This handy device is useful for staving off dehydration and providing a small amount of healing in the Mojave Wasteland.
  • Weathered 10mm Pistol – A well-worn 10mm pistol that packs an extra punch despite its modest size.
  • 5 Stimpaks – Food and water are good for long-term healing, but when the fighting is fierce, Stimpaks help keep Wastelanders upright.

The Tribal Pack, available when you pre-order through Amazon, contains:

  • Tribal Raiding Armor – Pieced together from scraps of armor, this outfit provides protection without impacting mobility.
  • Broad Machete – This heavy-bladed melee weapon does high damage against limbs and can quickly deal out a flurry of attacks.
  • 5 Bleak Venom doses – Useful on any Melee Weapon, Bleak Venom makes short of work of most living targets.
  • 10 Throwing Spears – If you would like to silently pin an enemy’s head to a wall, Throwing Spears are the way to do it.

The Caravan Pack, available when you pre-order through Steam and Walmart, contains:

  • Lightweight Leather Armor – This hand-modified suit of leather armor reduces its overall weight without impacting its ability to protect.
  • Sturdy Caravan Shotgun – Despite its rough appearance, this Caravan Shotgun will reliably fire 20 gauge shells until the Brahmin come home.
  • 4 Repair Kits – Useful for repairing any outfit or weapon, Repair Kits are a valuable tool for any caravaner.
  • Binoculars – The Mojave Wasteland is a dangerous place, but with these trusty Binoculars you’ll be able to spot trouble coming.

fnv-mercenarypackblog1.jpg

The Mercenary Pack, available when you pre-order through Best Buy, contains:

  • Lightweight Metal Armor – Modified for long-range travel, this Metal Armor sacrifices some protection for mobility and overall weight.
  • Mercenary’s Grenade Rifle – Though similar to other 40mm Grenade Rifles in the Mojave Wasteland, this model has a faster reload cycle.
  • 3 Super Stimpaks – When you absolutely, positively, need to keep your blood inside your body, Super Stimpaks fix you up in no time.
  • 3 Doctors Bags – Mercenaries and broken limbs go together like Iguana-on-a-Stick and Nuka Cola. Thankfully, these Doctors Bags take a bit of sting out of the inevitable crushed skull.

The Caravan pack has a giant cod-piece. But WHY?

when the game start, you get those unique items, and they may someday charge these "bonus packs".

Then people upload their ESPs to the internet and you pirate it. It's not like it doesn't happen to every pre-order bonus ever.

Why oh why would I even want extra stuff from the start? It's like starting Half Life 2 with a Rocketlauncher. Or have I misunderstood the point?

This is more likely a reason for me not to buy the game on pre-order than to buy it. Also WHAT MORON WOULD PUT A FUCKING ARMORED PLATE ON ONE SHOULDER ON THE VAULT SUITE?


They really don't care about any genuine setting do they?

Seeing the old Fallout screenie makes me cry a little.

Also: makes me compare the Vault 13 jumpsuits. New Vegas/F3 kind of looks like a Dickies Mechanic outfit. All the pockets and such.....

FALLOUT 1 CREATORS WERE MORONS.

(no backing down!) Sumo


Seriously though it just look so much worse in bethesdas version. In the F1 version that i had totaly forgotten it looks like the metal part there is somehow holding the cloth under together and thus the strap together. In bethesdas version it looks like an attempt at a gladiator armor.

Not really, the new version's pretty dang close to the original. It's a scroungers outfit,pure'n simple.

But then, who cares about these pre-order packs anyways? Starting with an advantage has always sucked, it's like playing Pokemon yellow when you could play green or pink. What I wanna know is- is there another lunchbox if I fork over even more of my hard-earned cash?

I suspect there may be a leather chestplate at the front though.

Nope. Looks like Bethesda were true to the original.
