A 'Fallout Legacy Collection' bundle containing all of the series' single-player games...

As spotted by PC Gamer, a listing on Amazon Germany displays the "Fallout Legacy Collection." The Legacy Collection, according to the store page, includes the following games (and is expected to arrive on October 25):

  • Fallout
  • Fallout 2
  • Fallout Tactics
  • Fallout 3 GOTY
  • Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition
  • Fallout 4 GOTY

The suggested price for the bundle would be around 40 German euros, or roughly $45. For reference, buying each main Fallout title individually on Steam would cost you $100 as of writing, and that's just for the normal editions which don't include any DLC or expansions. The version of the Legacy Collection shown on Amazon seems to be for Windows, but if it's a real listing, console versions are probably in the works as well.

A machine-translated version of the Legacy Collection's store description is as follows:

The full collection of all award-winning single-player games in the series! Return to Odland with the Fallout 4 - Game of the Year Edition. It contains all the gameplay updates, graphic enhancements, the ability to download and play free mods on PCs and consoles, and all six official extensions. Welcome back to New Vegas! With Ultimate Edition, Bethesda Softworks is putting together the complete Fallout: New Vegas package. The main game with the four additions Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues and Lonesome Road will immerse you even deeper into the world of New Vegas.

Due to the nature of machine translation (Google Translate, specifically), the wording of the description might seem a bit strange. However, it does seem legible enough to be plausible; it uses a lot of the same buzzwords and language that you'd normally see in a listing for a Bethesda game. There's even some official-looking box art for the Collection, which you can see below.

The main point that we would count against the Legacy Collection "leak" being legitimate is its price. Though its true cost may be slightly different than $45, even a $60 or $70 bundle would be a phenomenal deal -- almost too phenomenal.

The question our readers should be asking themselves is this: Would Bethesda be willing to cannibalize their own game sales to such a significant degree? What incentive is there for someone to pay $60 for Fallout 4's GOTY Edition alone when they can grab the entire Legacy Collection for less money? Unless the Legacy Collection is part of a Germany-exclusive limited-time offer of some sort, this leak could end up being too good to be true.

Still, the store page does look pretty official, and ZeniMax/Bethesda is listed as the seller (their other listings appear to be legitimate). We'll be reaching out to Bethesda for comment on this matter, and will update this article if we hear back.

In the meantime, we want to hear from you -- do you think this leak could be real? Feel free to sound off in the comments with your thoughts.

I've seen this reported on several gaming websites now. And think it's the real deal.

I'm pretty sure Bethesda isn't selling a whole lot of Fallout 4's (released nearly 5 years ago) for $40, right now. But they'll sell a ton of this Legacy package.

Makes total marketing sense to me.

Yeah, it's probably real but considering the spread of games over the series I think they might have it a bit over priced ....

If it is real, I'm wondering why it hasn't been announced for other regions just yet. Assuming the October 25 release date is legitimate, it seems like a mistake not to have at least teased it for North America. Or perhaps they did and I missed it.

I've really been feeling the urge to replay Fallout 3, NV and 4 and while I have them all on PC, and 4 also on PS4 I'd welcome this if it came with graphical enhancements - I've found mods to be hit and miss on the graphics front and entirely distracting from the game and then I always end up abandoning after 50+ hours.
Also, perhaps going to use this to push their Bethesda Launcher?

Only way I'd buy if they sorted out the whole playing over 60fps thing, but it's due to the crappy engine they refuse to ditch
This is actually fixable with a simple .ini edit. Works flawlessly in Fallout 4, Skyrim and Skyrim Special Edition. Older games, not so sure, haven't tried it. I can forward you the link if you want.

I agree that it should be fixed by default, though.

You could have gotten the legacy games from GOG ages ago. the rest are not even worth playing. Fallout died when they put out Fallout 3.
