The Fallout 76 free trial is set to start very soon and as we approach the release later today, we thought we would give a quick recap of exactly what you're getting when you log in.

First up, here's the gist: From June 10 (Today) through to June 17, all of Fallout 76 is free to play across all platforms.

That's right, Fallout 76 will be free to play for all Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players.

You can experience all that Appalachia has to offer, including the full breadth of Wild Appalachia content, Survival Mode.

Better yet, this will also include an exclusive sneak peek of the games next big expansion Nuclear Winter.

As for what time this Free Trial is set to kick off, Bethesda have not yet shared that information, although we would hazard a guess that the game will become free from 3pm BST onwards in line with when most Fallout 76 Updates usually drop.

Before you hop in, here are a few things you should know about this new way to experience Fallout 76, so we thought we would provide a quick summary for you in the event you missed Bethesda's E3 Briefing last night.

As mentioned, this free trial will include a sneak peak of new content.

Bethesda says you may notice something new in your menu when you load up the game.

That's where we suspect you'll find the new Nuclear Winter Battle Royale mode, which will pit you against your fellow players like never before.

Here's a more in depth explanation of the mode courtesy of Bethesda:

"Nuclear Winter is a uniquely-Fallout 52-player PvP Battle Royale mode, free for Fallout 76 players. Nukes have set the world ablaze and the battle to claim your spot as Overseer of Vault 51 has begun – will you be the last one standing or be consumed by the ring of fire?

"Rank up, unlock exclusive perks and build your C.A.M.P. to weather the storm in true Fallout fashion. Scavenge for weapons, Power Armor, and even nukes to take on other players and the creatures of Appalachia to earn unique cosmetic rewards.

"Any XP or Caps earned in Nuclear Winter also carry over to Adventure Mode or Survival Mode."

You'll be able to trial some of this later today, but keep reading for a full in-depth explainer on everything else coming as part of the Nuclear Winter Expansion


Nuclear Winter blends the competitive battle royale style with mechanics only Fallout can provide – from Power Armor and Perk cards, to C.A.M.P.s and wasteland creatures. Many of these mechanics have been adjusted to better suit this new gameplay mode and map size, including the stats of your weapons, armor, Chems and more. And while you can carry your Adventure Mode character into Nuclear Winter, their level doesnt affect how much damage you can inflict or receive. Everyone starts each match on an even playing field. You raise your damage output and increase defensives by tracking down weapons and armor as the match progresses.


The creatures of Wild Appalachia have also been rebalanced in Nuclear Winter. They wont be as tough to take down and killing them will earn you loot, but youll also alert nearby players to your location. Higher tier enemies like the Scorchbeasts drop the best gear in the game. When you pick up armor in Nuclear Winter, youre not just picking a left arm piece or a right leg piece. All armor pickups contain the full set of armor to help you get stronger faster. Think of Nuclear Winter as the entire Fallout 76 experience, tightly condensed into about 20 minutes.


The C.A.M.P. setup is vastly simplified in Nuclear Winter. You no longer need resources to build and the mode preserves your Blueprints from Adventure Mode, allowing you to quickly drop your creation into the map. Doing so does not affect your C.A.M.P. in Adventure Mode. But be careful where you set up camp, because the ring of fire is still closing in and will make quick work of your settlement. Because setting up your C.A.M.P. no longer require resources, certain items had to be reworked so players arent simply dropping in hundreds of turrets at no cost. In Nuclear Winter, turrets are actually lootable items that can be found in boxes around the map or on defeated players.

Nukes have also been reworked for Nuclear Winter. With the reduced map size, they now have a smaller effect and area, though the effect of the nuke drop is persistent and will remain for the rest of the match. In order to launch a nuke, youll need to find four nuclear codes and one launch briefcase in a single match.


Nuclear Winter has a grand total of 73 Perk cards for you to unlock and equip; ten of these cards are for this mode only and cannot be carried over to Adventure or Survival Mode. These include Walking Arsenal (combines all the weight reduction benefits for ranged weapons into one card); Frog LegRead More – Source
