Fallout: New Vegas Gets Retailer-Specific Preorder Packs

Think this New Vegas armour looks handsome? Then you'll want to preorder the game through Steam or Walmart to receive the Caravan Pack, one of four retailer-specific preorder bonuses for Fallout: New Vegas.

Will you preorder Fallout: New Vegas through Steam, Walmart, GameStop, Amazon or Best Buy? These four preorder packs might weigh in on your answer. Each comes with a special outfit, like the armoured Vault 13 Suit of the Classic Pack, a special weapon, a various pieces of equipment to make your journey through the Vegas Wastes more tolerable.

Instead of weighing in once again about how much I hate retailer-specific preorder bonuses, I'll just let you folks click through the gallery to see what goodies you get from which point of purchase.

The Caravan Pack, available when you pre-order through Steam and Walmart, contains:

· Lightweight Leather Armor - This hand-modified suit of leather armour reduces its overall weight without impacting its ability to protect.

· Sturdy Caravan Shotgun - Despite its rough appearance, this Caravan Shotgun will reliably fire 20 gauge shells until the Brahmin come home.

· 4 Repair Kits - Useful for repairing any outfit or weapon, Repair Kits are a valuable tool for any caravaner.

· Binoculars – The Mojave Wasteland is a dangerous place, but with these trusty Binoculars you'll be able to spot trouble coming.

The Classic Pack, available when you pre-order through GameStop, contains:

· Armored Vault 13 Suit - Extensively patched up and dotted with piecemeal armour, this outfit is an homage to the classic ending of the original Fallout.

· Vault 13 Canteen - This handy device is useful for staving off dehydration and providing a small amount of healing in the Mojave Wasteland.

· Weathered 10mm Pistol - A well-worn 10mm pistol that packs an extra punch despite its modest size.

· 5 Stimpaks - Food and water are good for long-term healing, but when the fighting is fierce, Stimpaks help keep Wastelanders upright.

The Mercenary Pack, available when you pre-order through Best Buy, contains:

· Lightweight Metal Armor - Modified for long-range travel, this Metal armour sacrifices some protection for mobility and overall weight.

· Mercenary's Grenade Rifle - Though similar to other 40mm Grenade Rifles in the Mojave Wasteland, this model has a faster reload cycle.

· 3 Super Stimpaks - When you absolutely, positively, need to keep your blood inside your body, Super Stimpaks fix you up in no time.

· 3 Doctors Bags - Mercenaries and broken limbs go together like Iguana-on-a-Stick and Nuka Cola. Thankfully, these Doctors Bags take a bit of sting out of the inevitable crushed skull

The Tribal Pack, available when you pre-order through Amazon, contains:

· Tribal Raiding Armor - Pieced together from scraps of armour, this outfit provides protection without impacting mobility.

· Broad Machete - This heavy-bladed melee weapon does high damage against limbs and can quickly deal out a flurry of attacks.

· 5 Bleak Venom doses - Useful on any Melee Weapon, Bleak Venom makes short of work of most living targets.

· 10 Throwing Spears - If you would like to silently pin an enemy's head to a wall, Throwing Spears are the way to do it.


    Dear Kotaku AU

    This is not america

      We usually get the same preorder deals as the USA, just from different shops...

    If Amazon was not so terrible I would so be rocking that tribal armor.

    thing im wondering is will this matter on my PC version since itll have the console or else itll just get released in a mod i can understand these being incentives in the states but eh

    Eb has The Classic Pack

    JB have the Merc pack

    Game.com.au has the caravan pack

      and Game gets my preorder! All the other ones (except for the metal outfit) are rehashed suits and weapons from Fallout 3 =/
