It was bound to happen. Now that Fallout: New Vegas has received its fair share of expansion packs, Bethesda has announced that an Ultimate Edition will release on February 10th, 2012. It will contain the base game and all DLC (Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, Lonesome Road, Courier's Stash and Gun Runners' Arsenal) - which has the knock on effect of adding new areas, items, perks, challenges, missions and an increased level cap.
"For players who are seasoned explorers of New Vegas or just getting into the game for the first time, the Ultimate Edition expands beyond the Wasteland like never before with the Sierra Madre Casino, Zion National Park, Big MT research crater and the treacherous Divide now open for exploring." - Bethesda
So the question now is whether to buy the DLC packs or hold off for the Ultimate Edition. The choice, as they say, is yours. Box art after the break.
