To celebrate Bombs Drop Day.
Fallout 76

Get ready to celebrate the day in which the bombs dropped in the Fallout universe, October 23, which is otherwise known as Bombs Drop Day. Bethesda is celebrating this uh "holiday" by offering some special limited-time events both inside Fallout 76 and outside of the game.

First off, Bethesda is offering a free play week from October 20 through October 26. Players will be able to hop into Fallout 76 and play the full game for free. This includes the base game experience, along with the Wastelanders and Nuclear Winter content updates. If you should decide to keep playing after this week of freedom, you will be able to carry your progress over. This includes carrying over any potential Atomic Shop purchases made. But like, if you weren't planning on buying the full game, what are you doing making microtransaction purchases in the first place?

In the game itself, there will be special events running from October 22-26. You will get Double S.C.O.R.E. and double XP. There will also be 25% off Legendary weapons and armor from the Purveyor at the Rusty Pick in the Ash Heap.

Finally, there will be a limited time preview for Fallout 1st. Players will be able to experience what having a Fallout 1st paid membership is all about all without having to spend a penny. In order to claim this free membership, all players need to do is log in between October 20 and October 26, then find the free Fallout 1st Limited Preview "item" in the Atomic Shop, claim it, and begin the trial.

These bonuses are on top of a big sale going on with the base game and the purchase of the premium currency, Atoms.
