Amazon’s Fallout series is crossing over with two Fallout games

A TV show based on the Fallout series of video games debuted on Amazon Prime this week, and now Fallout Shelter and Fallout 76 are both getting new content themed around the show.

Free-to-play vault management game Fallout Shelter will get a new eight-mission questline. Playing through this quest will net players six new vault dwellers, including Ella Purnell’s Lucy, Aaron Moten’s Maximus, and Walton Goggins’ The Ghoul. Bethesda is also adding other items themed around the series to the game, including a pre-war Cowboy outfit, The Ghoul’s revolver, a wedding dress, and a Vault 33 jumpsuit. That last item will be available for free to anyone who logs into the game between today and May 7.

Fallout 76 is also getting some in-game items based on the Amazon Prime series. Between today and May 7, a Vault 33 jumpsuit will be available for free for all players, while Fallout 1st subscribers can also pick up a West Coast Duster and Hat in the in-game store. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will also be able to get the Vault 33 Survival Kit, which includes Lucy’s Vault 33 backpack, lunch boxes, perk card packs, and three S.C.O.R.E. Boosters. That backpack will also be available as a Twitch Drop.

Bethesda is taking this opportunity to get more people into Fallout 76 by letting people play the game for free between today and April 18 and offering it at an 80% discount this month. Keep in mind that the game is already part of Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus Extra’s game catalogs, so the discount will be most useful for PC players or those who don’t have Microsoft or Sony’s gaming subscriptions.

All Teddy Bear locations in Fallout 76
A teddy bear in a train station 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.

Where to find Burnt Books in Fallout 76
Raiders in Fallout 7 fighting near fire.

Crafting is as important a mechanic in Fallout 76 as shooting and looting. As is the case with every Bethesda game, you will be collecting every item in the world that isn't nailed down to use for parts until you're over--encumbered. Being a live service game, you will often also be tasked with hunting down a specific material or item as part of a daily or weekly challenge. One fairly common one is to find burnt books. There are a few smaller stashes of these singed paperbacks around Appalachia, but one location in particular is the mother lode. There are no libraries in the wasteland, but we know the location of the secret stashwhere you'll find all the burnt books you could want.
Where to find burnt books

There are several locations that have a handful of burnt books, but there's one that has well over 100 in a single location. To fill your bookshelves in a single trip, head over to Summersville and go to the house at the location shown on the map. Take out the ghouls outside and enter the house. Whoever lived there must've been quite the book enthusiast as there are stacks of burnt books to loot on each floor of the house. Once trip here and you will complete your quest and stock up on as many burnt books as you need.

All Fallout games, ranked
The courier in his nuclear gear and holding his gun in Fallout: New Vegas key art.

Who would've thought the post-apocalypse could be such a fun time? The Fallout franchise has taken the idea of a Mad Max-like future and not only made it into a wildly popular game franchise but also a hit TV series. The core franchise has been around since the late '90s, and yet we've had only a handful of mainline entries in the series since it was revived by Bethesda with Fallout 3. With Starfield in the rearview mirror and the next Elder Scrolls title currently being the dev team's focus, it could be close to another decade before we can set foot in the wasteland ourselves once again. What better time, then, to look back at the franchise and rank all the games from best to worst?
