For those who've waited 10 months and are just now thinking about dipping their toes into Fallout 4, there's an opportunity to pick up the Steam copy of the game plus DLCs on the cheap. It's all part of GMG's Fallout 4 sale, which runs now
through Saturday, September 24 through Wednesday, September 21 and gets you 60% off the Fallout 4 base game and about 40% off on select DLC packs.
Update: Fallout 4 deals expired earlier than expected and are not over with.
These prices are pretty decent. Fallout 4 itself is tying its all-time historic low for the PC Steam version of the game (okay, technically $0.04 off its all-time low, but close enough). The DLCs are all at its lowest price to date. The catch for the sale is you'll need to do two things: 1) Login; 2) Use code: VIP3 at checkout. Not that hard, but it can get confusing at GMG as they only display their full discount prices after a user has either logged in or created a new account.
Fallout 4 and DLC Deals for PC
Use coupon: VIP3
Fallout 4 (Steam) - $24.05 (list $60) Fallout 4: Nuka World (Steam) - $15.51 (list $20) Fallout 4: Far Harbor (Steam) - $15.10 (list $25) Fallout 4 - Automatron (Steam) - $6.10 (list $10) Fallout 4: Wasteland Workshop (Steam) - $3.19 (list $5) Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop (Steam) - $3.19 (list $5) Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop (Steam) - $2.22 (list $5)
The only DLC that doesn't seem to be getting a huge discount is the latest Nuka World pack. To be honest, it's probably the worst-reviewed DLC pack on Steam right now with about 50% of the reviews being negative, so it may not be a bad idea to skip out on this $15 purchase. For a better DLC experience, Far Harbor is much more well received and the same goes for the Automatron pack.
This sale actually started up as early as Friday last weekend and was suppose to expire earlier this Monday, but it looks like Fallout 4 sold relatively well and Green Man Gaming has decided to extend the sale. If you prefer other retailers, we'd wait after a week, as we're almost certain the sale will trickle onto other stores (e.g. Steam Store or GamersGate etc.) as Bethesda cycles the promotion through their other distributors.
