Fallout 76 is free with Prime this month – why you should get it

April 5, 2024 by No Comments


Fallout 76 still gets a bad rap as ‘the fall of the Fallout franchise’. It was released in 2018 to little reception and the early reviews were certainly well founded. It’s a barren game – and not just because it’s set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. It felt empty and lifeless, and there was nothing tangible to motivate the player to explore the open world and stick with the game.

Following an amazing transformational story, Fallout 76 turned out to be a diamond in the rough. Millions of people are still deluded and insist that Fallout 76 was a success because of those initial impressions, but Bethesda Game Studios had to turn the game around and it’s worth playing now.

This month, you can get Fallout 76 for free with Prime Gaming – and here’s why you should.


Is Fallout 76 worth it now?

Fallout 76 now offers hundreds – if not thousands – of hours of content. It’s the perfect MMO for those new to the genre and it’s firmly rooted in the lore of the Fallout universe. As the first multiplayer game in the post-apocalyptic franchise, Fallout 76 struggled to gain a legitimate place in the series, with many claiming ‘it’s not a real Fallout game’ – but that’s nonsense.

If you’re new to Fallout 76, you’ve got hundreds of hours of gameplay lined up in front of you. From the shell of the game, Bethesda Game Studios – and other, third-party studios – built this vibrant, diverse and dynamic world with immersive questlines, countless side tasks, a bounty of world events and some fan-favorite restrictions. Timed specials that make the game live and burn bright.

It’s one of the largest worlds in the Fallout franchise, has unparalleled base-building mechanics, and as a live service game, it’s constantly being updated and tweaked by Bethesda Game Studios. If you’re a fan of the franchise and you’ve never played Fallout 76, you’re shooting yourself in the foot – so turn on your VATS and aim for this free drop from Prime Gaming.

Starting April 11, to coincide with the release of the Fallout TV show, users on PC and Xbox will be able to claim a code for Fallout 76 at no extra charge. There’s no risk involved, so why not give it a shot and see how you feel?
