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!)
Marvel Heroes is a fun free-to-play game on PC, and they are working on a PS4 version to bring all the superhero fun to your TV. One of the most exciting additions to the Omega version is the inclusion of couch co-op! My wife and I hopped on the beta after receiving my code and beat up some bad guys as Rocket Raccoon, the Punisher, Wolverine, and Squirrel Girl!
I think the full PS4 release is going to have a price tag, but if you hurry you can grab a free Beta key code to try out Marvel Heroes Omega on your PS4 until the 15th of the month, couch co-op included!
Head over to Gamespot for more information:
As the new Saints Row games come to GOG, Saints Row 2 is being given away for FREE for a LIMITED TIME! That’s right, head over to GOG.com in the next ~39 hours to grab your FREE download of Saints Row 2. This is obviously for the PC version, and it looks like GOG is also having sales on other Saints Row games and other games from Deep Silver. That’s hours of wild and zany Saints Row fun for nothing 🙂
