Fallout New Vegas is released on October 22nd on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC
From the Fallout Wikia page, apparently, there has been a leak of a advanced power armour making a return to Fallout New Vegas, if you have played the original Fallouts, you may know this power armour from it’s shape alone.
The picture your about to see maybe similar to old Fallout players and new players to the series may not know of, especially if you don’t study the history of the Enclave.
This is Enclave Advanced Power Armour from Fallout 2, you can tell from the weird detailed helmet, it’s also on the front cover of the Fallout 2 game cover.
It’s been classed as a “Work In Progress”, I know some people are a little fed up of seeing Enclave or Brotherhood of Steel but that doesn’t stop the creators from letting you get your hands on their equipment in New Vegas at least but we never know if this will be the final product.
Personally, they should make brand new power armour, away from the Brotherhood of Steel and Enclave area and more into the secret armour like the T-51B series but more detailed, that’s just my opinion though…..
If you live in the UK and wanting to get Fallout: New Vegas, there is a Collector’s Edition version of the game to pre-order.
The Collector’s Edition boxset will cost £70 for Xbox 360 and PS3 or £50 for PC users. (Unless you are pre-ordering from certain well named game shops, in which you could put £10 deposit to take the price down to £60 upon collecting)
Here is what the Collector’s Edition of Fallout New Vegas contains:
- Fallout New Vegas Game
- Poker Chips
- Platinum Poker Chip
- Playing Cards
- Art Book
- Making of New Vegas DVD
If your a mad fan of Fallout, then this is a must, it’s better to try to get that £10 deposit so you have to pay a little less on collection and of course, makes sure your got a copy, do it now before it’s too late as records show that New Vegas is outselling Fallout 3 in pre-orders!
If you are thinking of pre-ordering from GAME, you made the right choice as for limited time and to UK customers ONLY, you will get a exclusive game pack for New Vegas if you pre-order at GAME, the picture below shows what you will get from the “Classic Pack”
You better pre-order it soon if you want this bonus pack for New Vegas.
The release of Fallout New Vegas is at October 22nd 2010 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
I have already pre-ordered my copy of the Collector’s Edition and I am really excited to collect and play this! I may even write a review for it….. If I can get off it that is, hahahaha!
