UPDATE: Bethesda has been in contact to let us know that Fallout: New Vegas has been rated R18 in New Zealand.

ORIGINAL: Bethesda has announced that Fallout: New Vegas will be available in New Zealand on the 21st of October.

Additionally, a variety of special editions and the collector’s edition have been detailed.

The collector’s edition includes:

  • “Lucky 7” poker chips. Each of the seven poker chips was designed to represent chips from the major casinos found on the New Vegas strip and throughout the Mojave Wasteland.
  • A fully customised Fallout: New Vegas deck of cards. Each card in the pack has been uniquely illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game. Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for Fallout: New Vegas.
  • A recreation of the game’s highly coveted “Lucky 38” platinum chip.
  • A hardcover graphic novel “All Roads”, that tells the story of some of the characters and events that lead up to Fallout: New Vegas. “All Roads” was written by Chris Avellone, the game’s creative director, and created in conjunction with Dark Horse Comics.
