A free weekend for an entirely single-player game is quite an unusual occurrence, but Bethesda has delivered exactly that with Fallout 4. The newest entry in the post-apocalyptic RPG series is now available to play for free in its entirety on Xbox One until Sunday, with the PC version following suit in a few hours.
Released back in 2015 to rave reviews, Fallout 4 takes place in a nuclear bomb-ravaged Boston and its surroundings, now known as The Commonwealth. As the Sole Survivor, players are tasked with seeking their missing son, but common to all Fallout games, there are vast amounts of areas to explore, people to meet (and kill,) as well as quests to complete while on their journey.
Although PlayStation 4 players are left out from the free promotion, Bethesda will have a 67% off discount running for the game throughout the weekend on all platforms, with its season pass and even individual DLC packs also on sale. The sale is not up yet on Steam, but be sure to check once the free weekend is live.
Xbox Live Gold members on the Xbox One are now able to experience the base game's enormous amount of gameplay experiences without any locked content until May 28, 11:59 pm PT. Meanwhile, the PC version's free weekend on Steam is slated to begin later today at 10 am PT, and will last until May 28, 1 pm PT. Also, remember to check out some mods while trying the game out, as the community has provided a range of gameplay enhancing modifications.
With E3 just around the corner, there is a strong possibility Bethesda will show off the Fallout 4's previously announced VR version at the event, not to mention the company has teased the introduction of two new games at E3 as well, making the publisher's conference a must watch.
