Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition includes a wearable helmet

A very special special edition of the next Fallout

Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 and is now editor-in-chief. He co-hosts The Besties, is a board member of the Frida Cinema, and created NYU’s first games journalism course.

Fallout 76’s special edition, announced at Bethesda’s E3 2018 event, will include a wearable helmet. Seriously — it’s a big ol’ wearable helmet.

To be specific, it’s the T-51b helmet, which players will recognize from the franchise. This calls back to the wearable, life-size Pip Boy peripheral that Bethesda released alongside Fallout 4 in 2015.

The collector’s edition version of the game will also include a map of the game world that glows in the dark and 24 plastic figurines with designs based on the game’s 3D models.

Dubbed the Power Armor Edition, the game is housed in the Tricentennial Edition Steelbook, a metal game case that will house the Fallout 76 game disc. And Power Armor Edition owners will also get special, bonus in-game items. Those who pre-order the Power Armor Edition will get access to the Fallout 76 beta.

The Power Armor Edition will release alongside the regular version of Fallout 76 on Nov. 14. The always-online game will be available for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
