Collectors, prepare your wallets: Bethesda has taken the wraps off the Fallout Anthology, a collection of all Fallout games released for PC so far, contained in a mini nuke case.

It’ll be out a month before Fallout 4 goes on sale – late September/early October – giving people who may have not yet played the games a crash course in what makes the franchise so awesome, and collectors a chance to own all Fallout games and display them in eye-popping fashion.

Inside the mini nuke case is space to store all five games – Fallout 1, 2, Tactics, Fallout 3 GOTY and New Vegas GOTY – but Bethesda has craftily left room for Fallout 4 as well, which you’ll still need to pay for separately. Once it’s out in November and you’ve bought it, your Fallout collection will truly be complete.

The GOTY versions of Fallout 3 and New Vegas will come with all DLC released for those games, giving you many hours of enjoyment over and above their 50+ hour main campaigns.

Engadget says the collection will retail for $50 – R625 – according to a pre-order page that’s gone live on American retailer Best Buy.

We’ve received no word on local pricing or availability, but it stands to reason we’ll also get at least a few of these for our own die-hard Fallout fans, so keep an eye on your news feeds as we’ll tell you the moment we get word.

[UPDATE: We’ve just received word from local Bethesda distributor, Ster Kinekor Entertainment, that the Fallout Anthology will definitely be available in South Africa at a cost of R499.]

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
