During the Bethesda E3 2019 press conference, Bethesda officials took to the stage to make tons of announcements surrounding its current and future games. One of the many games that were shown some love was Fallout 76. Bethesda announced that Fallout 76 would be getting a free to play period over the course of a week. The Fallout 76 free to play announcement aims to help hype up the new battle royale mode that made its way into the game today as part of Update 10. So, when are the Fallout 76 free to play dates?
Fallout 76 Free to Play start and end dates
If you’ve been thinking about exploring West Virginia, now is your chance! The Fallout 76 free-to-play period begins today, June 10 and will run through the whole week, ending on June 17. That’s right, Fallout 76 will be completely free for a whole week! This will allow players to experience all that Fallout 76 has to offer, without paying a dime, including the new battle royale mode. Fallout 76 will be free to play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC throughout the trial period.
If you like what you see and decide to buy the full game, you’ll want to be a bit wary of making too much progress during the Fallout 76 free-to-play period. No weapons or Perk cards will carry over to the full version of Fallout 76 if you decide to buy it, only your characters physical appearance. The lack of progression carrying over is definitely frustrating, but hey, at least the game is free for a limited time.
Fallout 76 free trial players will also be able to complete challenges in the Nuclear Winter mode, which will offer cosmetic rewards, workshop items, and more. Players will also be able to earn Perk cards during the free trial, but they won’t carry over the full version of the game, assuming they decide to buy it.
