Bethesda has started a free-to-try period for their multiplayer RPG Fallout 76.
From October 20th to October 26th, players will be able to experience the game entirely free of charge on their platform of choice. That’s PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
To sweeten the deal, Bethesda has also included the much-despised Fallout 1st subscription service in the mix, a service that costs players $99 a year.
The Fallout 1st subscription gives players access to a bunch of goodies which you’d hope for every egregious subscription service. There’s private servers, unlimited storage, free premium currency and more. It would be a fine addition to a free-to-play game, but Fallout 76 isn’t free-to-play.
Bethesda’s free trial period will be different from the actual experience of playing the game. For the free period, players will have Double XP, 25% off legendary weapons and armour, decreased microtransaction prices, double SCORE and three simultaneous in-game events. Very sneaky, Bethesda.
