Fallout 4 is getting a free weekend on both Xbox One and PC

Bethesda is hoping to entice anyone who has yet to try out Fallout 4 with a free weekend event which is now live for both Xbox One and PC.

As of the time of this writing, users can download and play Fallout 4 either via the Xbox Live Marketplace (for Xbox One) or on Steam (for PC). Even though Fallout 4 is a single-player only game, an active Xbox Live Gold subscription is needed to download the Xbox One version of the game, though Xbox One users do get access to player-made mods as well. The free weekend period is live right now and will remain so until this upcoming Sunday, May 28.

If a player enjoys their time with Fallout 4, they can purchase the full game at a 67 percent discount (knocking the price down to $19.79) and pick up right where they left off in the free trial. The discount is only active until the end of the free trial’s duration on Xbox One and until May 29 on PC. The game’s season pass has also had its price temporarily reduced to $29.99 (usually $49.99), though sadly it doesn’t look like individual DLC packs have been discounted (at least not on PC).
