Fallout 76 is free to play this weekend

Fallout 76, the online multiplayer Fallout game that has had a rather tough time at life, is free to play this weekend on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The game had a rather terrible launch and the SA Gamer review said: “It certainly looks and sounds like Fallout, with country music and its familiar trappings. As you play more though, the cracks start to show and you realise that you are playing a very hollow shell, a husk parading as a Fallout game.”

Since then, the game has had a lot of work put in. A PvP-heavy survival mode, a battle-royal style thing, brewing, distilling, dungeons, quests and the latest update added NPCs, something that felt sorely lacking from the base game.

If you are keen on giving it a go, but didn’t want to risk your hard-earned bottlecaps, or perhaps you wanted to go back and see if the Wastelanders update made the game something a lot more palatable to you, then the free weekend starts tomorrow evening and runs until Monday. During the weekend there will be double XP, so get them levels.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
