In case you’d forgotten, you can currently jump into the Appalachian wastelands of Fallout 76 and play for free until June 17th, and if you find yourself wanting more after the trial period is over, you can snag the full game for up to 50% off from the official Bethesda store for a limited time. On top of that, the devs have announced that they plan to keep the good times rolling with a new double XP event that’s set to begin next week on Thursday, June 20th, and that will run until Monday, June 24th, giving any newly arrived wasteland wanderers a good opportunity to get some levels under their belts.
The ongoing free trial period also gives players the opportunity to check out the recently announced and newly introduced Nuclear Winter battle royale game mode, which hit the live servers earlier this week alongside a whole slew of combat-system improvements. As we detailed previously, the combat improvements are pretty far-reaching, giving players faster aiming speeds, the ability to cancel weapon-switching and -holstering animations, and much more extensive settings options to add scrolling combat text, fine-tune look sensitivity, and more.
A new #Fallout76 Double XP Event will begin on Thursday, June 20! Check out this week’s edition of Inside the Vault to catch the exact dates and times.
