Fallout 3, when it was first released in 2008, was huge. Fallout 4 should be bigger, and sequels generally are. The sequel is going to be equally big, and there is even an article from the Waterford Whispers News that states how a Dublin woman is enjoying her time with her husband before the release date of Fallout 4. It's pretty clear that players need to prepare for the release date of Fallout 4, and here are 5 Things to Do to Prepare for the Release Date of Fallout 4 on November 10, 2016.
According got Forbes, there have been some leaks of screenshots and gameplay, and some have complained that the graphics don't look so good. It is possible that fans are expecting more after a 7-year gap between Fallout 3 and the new iteration, but you can expect that whatever people say before the release, Fallout 4 will be bought in droves. Here are the 5 things you can do to prepare for it.
1) Get another Fallout 4 related app.
If you want to get in on Fallout 4 before its release date, there is an app for that. Like Fallout Shelter, this Fallout 4 Pip-Boy application is made for the mobile, and it is available on both iOS and Android now. Engadget describes it as some holotape games, and resembles the wrist wearable device from the post-apocalyptic gaming franchise.
2) Try once again to get that elusive Pip Boy Edition
For those who want to get their hands on the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition, there is also some bad news if you live in the United States, according to a separate article from Gotta Be Mobile. The Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition is a collector's edition of the game that includes several collectibles including a small replica of the Pip Boy, the gadget that the Fallout player character wears on the wrist. It also includes a "perk poster" that Bethesda will be including in all the physical pre-orders of the game. There will also be a copy of Fallout 3 for the Xbox One that will be backwards compatible once Microsoft makes that feature available for this game.
3) If you haven't pre-ordered, do it now.
Thanks to the Xbox One's new backward compatibility feature, pre-ordering Fallout 4 gets you a complimentary copy of Fallout 3, just like what's in the Pip-Boy edition. Chances are, you probably played the game already if you're buying Fallout 4, but it is a good deal. The pre-load of the game on the Xbox One, PS4, or PC will allow you to play it the moment it goes live on November 10th.
4) Attend a Midnight Release Party
Major retailers like Gamestop, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy will open their doors for a midnight release of the game, so you should check to see if the branch nearest you will be open for this event. Depending on the time zone, you can get Fallout 4 even before November 10th, on November 9th. Pacific Time will be 9:01 PM, Mountain Time will be 10:01 PM, Central Time will be 11:01, and Eastern time will be midnight.
5) See if you can't get in on a deal
Even though you're willing to pay full price for Fallout 4, you might as well see if you can't save some money. For example, buying the game from Microsoft will get you $10 for the Xbox Store, and Amazon Prime is offering to take $10 off the initial cost. Best Buy offers a similar $10 certificate, and the Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked will allow for an extra 20 percent savings. Dell is offering a $25 eGift card with the purchase of the game, but you will need to pay extra to receive it before the release date.
