Bethesda announce the first ever Fallout 4 free play event, coming to Xbox One and Steam this weekend.
From May 25 to 28, Fallout 4 will be free to download and play for all Xbox Live Gold Members and Steam users. All of Fallout 4’s base content will be included, as well as the game’s extensive range of mods. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like PlayStation 4 owners will get to take part.
Running alongside the Free Weekend promotion, the game – and its substantial season pass – will be discounted on Steam, Xbox Live, and the PlayStation Store, with reductions of up to 67% on offer.
Here’a short trailer from Bethesda to celebrate the news

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
