If you haven't yet had a chance to take on Bethesda's latest entry in its post-apocalyptic Fallout series, now's a good time to give it a whirl on Xbox One. Microsoft has announced that Fallout 4 will be free to play for Xbox Live Gold members this weekend, allowing members to explore the nuclear wasteland contained within, free of charge.
In Fallout 4, you emerge to explore a world that was ravaged by a nuclear disaster more than 200 years ago. Having been released in November of 2015, Fallout 4 is a little long in the tooth at this point, but it offers hundreds of hours of quests, exploration, and RPG gameplay between the main story and its DLC packs. If you own an Xbox One X, Fallout 4 also recently got a breath of fresh air with 4K support and visual enhancements on the console.
A weekend is long enough to dip your toes into the world of Fallout 4, but there's a ton of depth to its systems and story. If you want to pick the game up after giving it a shot, Microsoft says it will also be available to buy at a 33 percent discount for the base game or 40 percent off for the Game of the Year Edition, which includes all of the available DLC. If you already have the base game, the Season Pass is up for grabs at 50 percent off, and individual DLC packs can be had at a 40 percent discount.
In any case, if you want to give Fallout 4 a shot, it will be free to play through January 28 at 11:59 PT. To get started, you can start downloading the game from your Xbox One dashboard.
