Get 'Fallout 4' with all its DLC in the new Game of the Year Edition

Fallout 4 | The Wanderer Live Action Trailer
Fallout 4 has been out for well over a year at this point, but if you haven’t tried out Bethesda’s latest apocalyptic role-playing adventure, now is the perfect time. The publisher announced on Thursday the Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition, which bundles the original game together with all of its post-launch downloadable content.

Releasing for PC and consoles in September, Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition includes all six expansion packs for the game. Some of these are relatively small enhancements, such as the Vault-Tec Workshop and the Contraptions Workshop, but it also includes two larger, full-sized expansions. Automatron released last March and centers around rogue robots that are attacking civilians, while Far Harbor is a Shutter Island-like area filled with mutated creatures that are sure to give you the creeps. It originally released in May 2016.

If you didn’t get to purchase the “Pip-Boy Edition” of Fallout 4 when it launched in 2015, you’ll have a chance to do so again. The Game of the Year Edition will release again in a limited quantity at the same time as the standard version of the game. The package includes a poster, “pocket guide” for the game, as well as a wearable plastic Pip-Boy accessory. Your phone can be plugged in and you can utilize a special app to control certain features in Fallout 4, if you don’t mind looking kind of stupid.

Looking for even more? The game is coming to HTC Vive in October as Fallout 4 VR. Bethesda is also working on VR-compatible versions of Doom and, of course, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

But if even that isn’t enough to quench your perpetual Fallout thirst, a board game is also on the way. Created by Fantasy Flight Games, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare uses plastic miniature figures, and its content will span across multiple games in the series. It’s expected to go on sale this summer, and those who pre-order will apparently receive a bonus of some sort.

Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition launches for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on September 26.

How to hack in Fallout 4
A computer terminal in Fallout 4.

No matter what perks or skills your character has in Fallout 4, hacking will always come down to your ability as a player. There's no way to cheat the system here, and if you don't grasp what the game is asking you to do, you're mostly out of luck. Terminals will hide great loot behind their cryptic puzzles, as well as allow you to take over certain controls to turn your enemy's security against them. Some have very interesting logs about certain characters or events for all you lore junkies out there. Hacking has tons of uses, so let's brush up on your computer skills and give you a refresher on how to hack in Fallout 4.
How to hack in Fallout 4
When you first interact with a terminal to hack in Fallout 4, it will be a little overwhelming. As long as you have a high enough hacking skill to attempt a hack, you can go right into the minigame.

The basic idea of hacking is to find words hidden in that jumble of letters and symbols. Your goal is to find the correct word to crack the terminal before you run out of attempts. Once you find any word and select it, the terminal will tell you how close that word is to the correct one based on how many letters it has in the same space as the answer in the form of a likeness rating. The higher the rating, the more letters it has in common. It is somewhat similar to Wordle, only you don't type in the words yourself.

Cheat codes have somewhat become a thing of the past in modern gaming, with mods coming in to take their place.

Even as big as Fallout 4 is, it has shown its age at this point, so why not try out a few cheats to keep things exciting in the wasteland? Here are all the cheats and console commands you can use, and how to activate them.

All Teddy Bear locations in Fallout 76

There's no shame in admitting that you enjoy the company of a teddy bear in Fallout 76 over the ghouls and mutants. In fact, we would probably prefer spending time finding these cuddly bears than playing with the other players, but these stuffed animals are a rare commodity in the wasteland. Technically, these are classified as a junk item that you can break down for materials, but who would do something like that? These are great display items to make your camp feel more like home, or just another annoying daily task you need to complete. Whatever your motivations are, here is where you can find each of the different teddy bear variations in Fallout 76.
All teddy bear locations
There are 12 different variations of teddy bears that all have a distinct color pattern, name, and value, but are otherwise identical. Like most items, they can be found in a ton of places around the map, but these are the easiest spots to get the one you're looking for.
