The launch of the Fallout-themed Loot Crate “will coincide” with the release of Fallout 4 on November 10. We may be three months away, but Fallout 4 hype is already reaching fever-pitch largely owing to the fact that QuakeCon, the annual celebration of all things Bethesda that took place from July 23-26 in Dallas, was heavy on the Fallout 4 news.
Bethesda learned from all the SDCC movie trailer leaks this year and reportedly had security personnel aggressively scanning the QuakeCon crowds for smartphones and other recording devices during new Fallout 4 footage showed at the con. This of course led to multiple, intense reports of all the minutiae described during these presentations, because gamers can’t get enough information about all the new and updated systems running under Fallout 4’s hood.
They also can’t get enough Fallout 4 merch. Bethesda at QuakeCon revealed that the manufacturer of the Pip-Boy replicas from the upcoming Fallout 4 Collector’s Edition told Bethesda it couldn’t crank out any more Pip-Boys, because its factories had to move on to other products. Bethesda also announced a Fallout Anthology that comes packaged in a replica of the mini-nuke from the Fat Man weapon from the Fallout series.
There are no guarantees that any of the Fallout stuff curated by Loot Crate will be as cool as the Pip-Boy or the mini-nuke, of course. We would bet that the Fallout 4 Limited Edition Crate will still sell out within a few hours, so make sure you put your name on the email list now if you want in.
