Fallout 76 is the latest game to be free and it’s going to last just for a weekend. Bethesda decided on this to get players to check out all the additions in the game, including the Wastelanders expansion. Starting from Thursday (May 14, 2020) 12 pm EDT to Monday (May 18, 2020) 12 pm EDT, you will be able to get your hands on Fallout 76 without paying.
The people who have bought Fallout 76 need not be disheartened, because there is something for them as well. During this free period, these players will be double XP so that’s some good news as well. Free players will also get double XP in this Fallout 76 free weekend.
Fallout 76 didn’t receive rave reviews when it was launched and this seems to be an attempt by Bethesda to bring back players to the game after it made some improvements to it. The Wastelanders expansion, though, was received better from critics and players alike.
Because of this, maybe old players who had abandoned the thought of playing Fallout 76 will come back to the game. New players who haven’t yet played the game might come to check it out too. At the end of this period, will the free weekend of Fallout 76 manage to lure more players to the game? Only time will tell.
Fallout 76 is available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
