Fallout: New Vegas Collector’s Edition Looks Saweeet!

Get a good look at this: Bethesda announced yesterday via an e-mailed press release that Obsidian’s Fallout: New Vegas will be released in a standard edition and an uber-post nuclear warfare awesomeness Collector’s Edition.

The Collector’s Edition comes in a beautifully faded box and features a graphic novel, a set of “Lucky 7” poker chips representing each of the casinos of the New Vegas strip, playing cards, a making-of DVD and, of course, the game. Sure, there’s no bobbleheads or Pip Boy, but seriously, this looks beautiful.

The graphic novel, “All Roads,” was written by the game’s Creative Director and was put together in conjunction with Dark Horse, the team behind Mass Effect’s excellent comic books.

According to Pete Hines, Vice President of PR and Marketing at Bethesda, Bethesda is “offering this very cool collector’s edition to give fans the opportunity to own some of the items that they’ll discover while playing Fallout: New Vegas. We are also expanding their experience with the game by including a top-notch graphic novel worthy of the Fallout name and a DVD that gives them a behind-the-scenes look at how the game was created.”

Fallout: New Vegas is a completely separate story from Fallout 3. It takes place amidst the ruins of Las Vegas, which was only moderately damaged in the nuclear war that devastated the world. It is being developed by Obsidian, which contains many members of the original Fallout 1 & Fallout 2 teams from Interplay and will be arriving this fall on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Reportedly it will costs $69.99 for PC users and $79.99 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers.
