If you're one of the few remaining people never to have played Fallout 4, well, now is a good time to get hooked, as the game is currently completely free to play on the Steam platform this weekend, after which you can buy for a nice discount! So what are you waiting for?
Despite the popularity of the game, the one thing that has failed to come down is the price. It's never really dropped far, even thought he game has been out well over a year now, and this free weekend is a great way to try the game out for those who have been waiting for the price to drop. The great news is that once the free period is over, the game will finally be on sale, complete with Season Pass for 67% off.
The free weekend will run until 10am ET / 1pm PT on the 28th of May, after which the discount will become available.
Fallout 4 has many great mods available for it, both through the game interface itself and from third party sites, such as Nexus Mods, so there's no end of things to do within the Commonwealth, even after you've played the base game and all the DLC.
Some of the mods we recommend trying during your free weekend include
