Love the Fallout TV show? Get every game in the series for dirt cheap with these bombshell deals

After years of development, Amazon’s Fallout TV show is finally here, and it’s very, very good (check out our Season 1 review). It’s arguably one of the best video game adaptations ever made, garnering universal acclaim from franchise newcomers and longtime fans alike — and if you’re one of the former, there’s never been a better time to experience the beloved games the latter have enjoyed for years.

That’s because from now until April 21, Green Man Gaming — a retailer that sells Steam keys provided by game companies — is running an incredible Fallout Franchise Sale that knocks the cost of every game in the series down to their lowest-ever prices. These discounts range from 72-83% off, and are even better than the markdowns on Steam itself right now.

The entire Fallout franchise includes Interplay Entertainment’s isometric CRPGs Fallout and Fallout 2, its tactics spinoff Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, Bethesda Game Studio’s 3D RPGs Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 (and the latter’s VR version), Obsidian Entertainment’s Fallout: New Vegas, and the ongoing MMORPG Fallout 76. Something important to note is that the Fallout TV show is officially canon, which means that by playing these games, you’ll get tons of valuable context for what you saw onscreen.

By the way, all of them (other than Fallout 4 VR) are playable on PC Game Pass, which is the tier of Microsoft’s buffet-style gaming subscription service for PC gamers. The Bethesda and Obsidian games are also on the Xbox console version of the service, Xbox Game Pass; Interplay’s are only on PC (though they’re easy to run on any modern computer, so don’t worry if you don’t have a gaming rig). The benefits of both tiers are included in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, so if you want to check out all the games across Xbox and PC, go with that one. Do keep in mind that you really won’t be saving money unless you’re already subscribed, though, as it’ll likely take you a few months to fully play through these games and the price of 2-3 months of Game Pass is about the same as what it’d cost to buy them all permanently while they’re this cheap.

Another option is to snag this neat Bethesda Fallout S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Anthology Edition for $59.99, which includes PC codes for every Fallout game other than Fallout 4 VR, a Mini-Nuke collectible, and seven collectible Vault Boy cards. You’ll end up paying about $30 more than you would by simply buying the games directly while they’re on sale, but collectibles are cool, and when these markdowns end, this will actually become the most affordable way to get into the series.

Want to purchase the games, but play on Xbox instead of PC? Don’t worry — right now, all the Fallout titles are on sale on Xbox until April 19, and the discounts are almost as good as the ones Green Man Gaming is offering to PC players. Make sure to peruse and take advantage of these excellent deals before they go away next week, Xbox users.
