Fallout 76 Editions: What Do They Contain And Which Should I Buy?
As the Fallout 76 release date draws near, you may be wondering which Fallout 76 edition you should be picking up. There are three different editions in total at different price points: The Fallout 76 Standard Edition, Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition and the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition. Each one offers more than the last so make sure you check out all the contents for each of the Fallout 76 editions before you decide.

Fallout 76 Standard Edition – Fallout 76 Editions Guide
The Fallout 76 Standard Edition comes with what you’d expect: the base game. It also includes access to the beta which is ongoing currently, with two more beta sessions on Tuesday, November 6 and Thursday, November 8. If you pre-order Fallout 76 before then you’ll earn access to the beta, so it’s a good way to try the game out before it launches. This edition is great for most people and will set you back $59.99. Pick it up from Amazon for guaranteed beta access.
Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition – Fallout 76 Editions Guide
For an extra $20 – $79.99 in total – you can pick up the Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition. This version of the game comes with extra in-game items:
- Tricentennial power armor customization for the T-45, T-51, T-60 and X-01 power armor suits.
- Tricentennial weapon customization for the Hatchet, 10mm Pistol and Laser Pistol.
- Patriotic Uncle Sam outfit and Vault Boy mascot head.
- Tricentennial commemorative photo frame.
- Celebratory Vault Boy saluting emote.
- Tricentennial workshop posters.
Pretty cool stuff, especially the Uncle Sam outfit and Vault Boy mascot head. You can grab it from Amazon here.
Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition – Fallout 76 Editions Guide
For the hardcore Fallout fans, there’s also the physical-only Power Armor edition. This bad boy will set you back $199.99, but if you truly love Fallout, this is awesome.
- All of the in-game items from the Tricentennial Edition
- Exclusive steelbook case
- Collectible Fallout figurines
- Glow-in-the-dark world terrain map
- Canvas West Tek duffel bag
- Wearable T-51B Power Armor helmet
Now only you can decide if that’s worth it, but it would make a kick-ass helmet for Halloween next year. You’d expect a Fallout duffel bag to be fairly durable too, given that it’s set in a nuclear apocalypse, right? Here’s an Amazon link to the Fallout 76 Power Armor edition.
When you do pick the game up, make sure you check out all of the locations you can find the Grafton Monster.
