There have been a lot of big changes to Fallout 76 lately, from the major expansion of Wastelanders (opens in new tab) to its arrival on Steam. And Bethesda is encouraging you to check out all of what's new for free this weekend.
From Thursday, May 14 (starting at 12 pm EDT) to Monday, May 18 (ending at 12 pm EDT), you can download and play Fallout 76 without spending a penny. Meet the new human NPC factions, build yourself a nice base (opens in new tab) (or a crappy one (opens in new tab)), and maybe scarf down a few dozen pepperoni rolls (opens in new tab) while you're at it.
There's even some good news for people who already own Fallout 76, as the free weekend will also provide double XP for the duration. If you were planning a grind session for the near future, it'll only take you half as long this weekend.
