Fallout 4 edges closer to release and just yesterday Bethesda revealed the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for the upcoming post-nuclear role playing game. For those concern with their computer being up to the task, we’d check the blog post linked above.

With a more concrete idea of what entails from PC gamers, we’re noticing preorders are picking up as we also near the release date (only a little over a month to go!). For PC gamers looking to play Fallout 4 on release date, these deals from authorized retailers will save you some extra penny.

All deals above also work in most worldwide region, with GMG generally redirecting you to your respective region and pricing for Fallout 4. Over at Funstock, their standard pricing is in GBP but you can select from the top dropdown menu to get your price in USD or EU.

Preload & release time for preorders

Because you’ll be buying your Steam product code from third party retailers (vs Steam Store which is at full retail price), gamers unfamiliar with the process may be concerned with not receive their game key in time to activate and preload the game.

While preload and keys being sent out before release is very much dependent on publishers, have no fear as Bethesda is one such publisher who often distribute keys well ahead of time. All the retailers listed above will/should have keys sent out well before the November 10th release date.

Note that for those in North America, Fallout 4 will activate at 12:01 am ET (that means those in West Coast will get it earlier at 9:01 PM). The only ones late to the party will be Japan, which won’t receive the game until far away on December 17th.
