If you have an Xbox One with an Xbox Live subscription or a PC good enough to run it, Fallout 4 is free to play this weekend from XBL and Steam. The period is Thursday through Sunday, though the exact start at end times vary by console. This can be a great time for fans of the older Fallout or Elder Scrolls games to give Fallout 4 a try, or just a fun way to spend the weekend with a pretty neat game. There will also be a promotion running so you can save on buying Fallout 4 if you want to keep playing after the weekend. Sorry to PS4 users for the lack of love this time around!
Have a fun weekend!
For those of you have yet to try Tom Clancy’s The Division, you can play for free starting now through the weekend. Just download the demo from PSN for full access to the game for a limited time! I spent a couple of hours already and enjoyed the tense setting and tactical, short firefights that take place throughout New York City. If you’re a fan of Tom Clancy’s other games, it will feel very familiar. If you’re a fan of third-person, cover-based shooters, then this game has plenty of it.
Demos and free trials such as this can be a great way to make sure a game is worth it’s entry-fee, or just a way to try something new for a weekend. Elder Scrolls Online did something similar a few weeks ago, and I decided it wasn’t for me. So far with The Division, I’m considering nabbing it for its discounted price during this promotion.
Enjoy your weekend! (and don’t forget Free Comic Book Day is Saturday!)
