Bad news for anyone who hasn’t ordered but still wants the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition – which comes with a Pip-Boy smartphone wrist case: No more can be made.

“We reached a point where we’d go back to the factories and they were like, ‘guys, this is it, sorry.’”

-Pete Hines, Bethesda Softworks VP of marketing

The game won’t launch until November 10th, and the $119.99 Pip-Boy edition for PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One, is sold out pretty much everywhere video games are sold.

“We’d go back to [the factories] and say ‘Demand for this is insane, we’ve got to make more.’ [Their] final answer: ‘Sorry, this is as many as we can make.’ And we sold every single one of those that we could.”

-Pete Hines

CD Projekt Red details The Witcher 3’s Game+ mode

The-Witcher-3-Wild-Hunt-4

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red has revealed the final piece of free downloadable content coming to the open-world game was the New Game+ mode. The developer has explained what that means for players returning for a replay of The Witcher 3.

“Enemies will be stronger, obviously.”

-Marcin Momot, CD Projekt Red community lead

Player experience, money, and alchemy recipes will carry over when starting a New Game+ playthrough, according to Momot, so will items other than Gwent cards, quest items, books, letters, usable items, and trophies.

If a player finishes the game below level 30, they’ll be bumped up to level 30 when they start New Game+, according to Momot. Otherwise, they’ll start New Game+ playthroughs at their current level.

“You also get a free Clearing Potion at the start so you can reset your skills and try a different build.”

-Marcin Mormot

Players will be able to select any difficulty level when starting New Game+.
