Fallout 76 Free Week

You can now play Fallout 76 for free between now and October 26th to sample what the post apocalyptic RPG sequel has to offer. This is to "celebrate" October 23rd as the day the bombs drop in the game's story. You can pick up the Windows version on Steam and the Fallout 76 Website has details on other editions. This post has more on the plan, including in game events, associated sales, and the included chance to sample Fallout 1st with a preview of this premium service:
PLAY FOR FREE!
If you haven’t had the chance to jump into Fallout 76 yet, now is the best time! From now through October 26, you’ll be able to experience the entire game for free. This includes the base game experience, plus Wastelanders and Nuclear Winter.

As you play through Fallout 76, you’ll also be able to take advantage of all of the new features introduced in our One Wasteland Update, including enemy level rebalancing, which will let you play with anyone, anywhere in the wasteland. There’s also a brand-new Daily Ops system, which rewards you just for playing and completing challenges. Learn more about everything the One Wasteland Update has to offer here.

And, if you decide to get Fallout 76 when the Free Play Week is over, not only will all your progress carry over, but the game and all available content bundles will be on sale!

IN-GAME EVENTS
It wouldn’t be a true celebration without in-game events, and there will be three in-game events running from October 22 - 26. Get Double S.C.O.R.E. and Double XP, and get 25% off Legendary weapons and armor from Purveyor Murmrgh at the Rusty Pick.

LIMITED FALLOUT 1ST PREVIEW
Finally, get a sample of a Fallout 1st membership with the free Fallout 1st Preview. In order to claim it, all you have to do is log in between October 20 and October 26, find the free Fallout 1st Limited Preview “item” in the Atomic Shop, and you’ll have access to some of the features offered with the membership.

This trial will allow you to use the Scrapbox (which will need to be claimed separately through the Fallout 1st section of the Atomic Shop in order to build it in your C.A.M.P.) and Survival Tent. Just like for full Fallout 1st members, the Scrapbox will give you unlimited storage for your crafting components, and the Survival Tent operates as a placeable fast travel point with a Stash, Sleeping Bag, Scrapbox, Instrument and Cooking Station. (The Survival Tent will be located in your Favorites wheel after you activate your preview.)

It's the no modding that keeps me from it. I'm so used to having personalized Fallout, like amazing looking toons. Not because of any skill on my part, au contraire I suck at it but there are some amazingly skill modders who make toons look like anyone.

Anyone remember this amazing Resident Evil 5 intro Flying Through The Air? That's my Fallout 4 Intro, amazing and beautiful. I was able to convert the video and sound, but I did because someone modded Milla Jovovich. It couldn't have been any more perfect, I hate to spoiler you guys but she's frozen and wakes up, saves the world! Flamethrower Golfclap Ahoy

Not even worth playing for free. They could offer minimum wage to try and entice people to play this trash heap and people would still abandon it after the first day.

I'm glad the game isn't shit now, but the bloom has come off the Bethesda rose for quite a while now. At least for me.

Trust me, the game is still shit. It really is. The 6-7 people who play it, are very vocal how it's sooooo much better now, because it really is a little bit better, but it's still miles below anything resembling a proper game, whether that is an online multiplayer game or a Fallout game. You can polish a turd as much as you want but at it's core it's still going to remain a turd.

Iirc, Fallout Shelter was the same, original series fans avoided it too. I play Fallout 4 all the time, such great mods.
The main reason I avoid 76 is we know from history starting with Horse Armor, bethesda will do anything to exploit online cash income.

Shelter is completely different gameplay, though, while 76 is like 90% the same as FO4. And what's it to you if other people want to buy horse armor? That allows for new actual content to be added for free, unlike in the single-player games where they charge for additional quests and locations...
Yeah, maybe I wasn't very clear.
I wasn't saying Shelter was similar to 76, other than many long time fans avoided it too, because of the online cash grab store.
Hope that's clearer.

I tried to play it last time they offered it for free. And this was after it was supposed to be "fixed" and "good".

I had to disconnect my game controller or everything went nuts. I've never had another title in the last 5 years that was that stupid about something as simple as a game controller.

I also built a home base or whatever it's called and it disappeared the next time I came in because someone else had built near mine and I couldn't use it unless I went to a different server.

That's when I uninstalled. Too many other decent titles to put up with that type of crap.

Still, the most aggravating part of this game is the build and stash limits which are tiny. That's what I love about Conan Exiles, the sky's the limit. I'm playing on an official server now and it's incredible how much stuff people have built and where. Up by the Black Galleon someone built this enormously long skywalk cutting across the desert. Must have taken ages to build.

I am trying to get into Conan Exiles, but like every time I play the game I have to start over because I don't remember what server i played on last time. also I die all of the time and that's annoying.

I never did, and still don't understand all the hate this game received. It wasn't that bad if you had a decent pc. Yeah it was too much for the conslows but that's what you get for being poor. If your PC was G'd up from the feet up, 64 Gigs of RAM, and had plenty of RGB then, it played pretty fucking good and looked great in 4K. So sick of the poor's crying that 4k textures dont look any better then 1080p in 1080p, and slow down their conslows.

I like this game. I am a big fan of open world games, and you get a gigantic map of West Virginia to explore. There are weird and interesting things to find in the middle of nowhere if you run around in random directions.

A recent update made grouping between players of different levels a lot better than it used to be. This is great if your partner or friends don't play as much as you do.

How does combat work in a multiplayer game? Turn-based? VATS still available?

No time dilation but still functions as a percentage-based auto-aiming tool for certain areas of the target. I never liked it even in previous Fallout games so I rarely ever used it in 76. The rest is just your average gun play like in FO4.

Gameplay is in real time. VATS is still available, it just doesn't pause the action. I never used it personally but a fair number of people do, it seems they implemented it well.

Essentially it allows you to target specific body locations and do so with a measure of more guaranteed accuracy. Some perks buff the damage you do or accuracy you have while using it. But no pause.

Been playing Fallout games since receiving a Fallout 1 demo disk with a PC Gamer subscription months before release.

This was to be avoided like the plague at release, but a couple years later and it's a solid game now. Would give it a "B", scratches the Fallout itch if it's been awhile since you've played one.
