Every Fallout game goes on sale for unbeatable rock bottom prices ahead of the Amazon TV show’s release date

The post-apocalyptic Fallout franchise is one of the most popular roleplaying game (RPG) properties of all time, and like several other colossal video game series, it’s being adapted into a television show. Collaborating with its primary developer and steward Bethesda, Amazon is set to premiere the Fallout show’s opening season in just under a month on April 11.

Hype for the production has undoubtedly drawn many newcomers to check out what one of the best PC game franchises is all about — and thanks to some incredible new deals, jumping into its games has never been easier. That’s because for a limited time, every single Fallout game is on sale for up to a massive 79% off on PC. Heavy discounts are available when buying them from Steam directly, though you’ll actually find the best prices on the retail site GreenManGaming (it sells Steam keys provided by game publishers).

All the games that are marked down right now include Interplay Entertainment’s original isometric CRPGs Fallout and Fallout 2, the studio’s turn-based strategy offshoot Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, Obsidian Entertainment’s Fallout: New Vegas, and Bethesda’s Fallout 3, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76. The special VR version of Fallout 4 is on sale, too.

It’s worth noting that with the exception of Fallout 4 VR, all of these games are playable on PC through the PC Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate tiers of Xbox Game Pass, which is Microsoft’s all-you-can-eat gaming subscription service. With Xbox Game Pass for Console or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can also play New Vegas, 3, 4, and 76 on Xbox; if you’re interested in getting into Fallout but have Microsoft’s console instead of a gaming PC, trying out the series that way is what I’d recommend. Just keep in mind that Interplay’s isometric games are exclusive to PC, though they can run on any modern computer, for gaming or otherwise.

If you do have a decently powerful PC rig but you’re more of a collector, it’s also worth keeping this new Bethesda Fallout collection in mind. It’s slated to release on April 11 — the same day all eight episodes of Fallout Season 1 will be available to watch on Amazon Prime Video — and includes all of the games listed here sans Fallout 4 VR, along with a mini-nuke collectible and seven Vault Boy S.P.E.C.I.A.L. cards. It’s $60, which is almost a full $30 pricier than it’d be to buy each of its included games at their current individual discounts, but the extra goodies are pretty sweet. And notably, once the deals go away, this collection will become the cheapest way to permanently own every Fallout title.

Speaking of that, the Bethesda Spring Sale on Steam that kicked off these deals in the first place is scheduled to end on March 21. It’s unclear if this is when we’ll see GreenManGaming’s markdowns end, too, though I wouldn’t wait to find out. Take advantage of them now, because there may never be better Fallout discounts available.
