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
