Fallout 76’s Bombs Drop Event Brings Spooky Scorched, Sales, and Free Play Week

In the world of Fallout, October can be a somber time remembering Bombs Drop Day — the moment in the series’ timeline where nuclear war devasted the planet. However, it also gave players an irradiated Appalachia to explore, build and quest with friends in Fallout 76, so we’re making Bombs Drop Day a day to celebrate with a Spooky Scorched in-game event, sale and more!

Join in the Free Play Week

Haven’t emerged from your Vault yet? Take your first steps into Appalachia for free from October 19 to October 25 during our Free Play Week! Want to keep playing after the Free Play Week is over? Pick up the full game (at a discount; more on that in just a moment) and all your progress will carry over, allowing you to jump right back in and keep playing.

Players on console will need an active Xbox Live Gold membership to partake in the Free Play Week. Additionally, the Windows 10 PC edition of the game will not support the Free Play Week promotion. PC players looking to access the Free Play Week can do so via the Bethesda.net, Steam, or Xbox Play Anywhere versions of the game.

Save During Out Bombs Drop Sale

From now until October 26, you can save up to 75% on Fallout 76 with our Bombs Drop Sale in the Xbox Store — perfect for players itching for more adventure after the Free Play Week, or just to grab an extra copy for a friend so they can join up with you! We’ll also be discounting items in-game through October 25 with a Scrip Surplus and up to 50% off of Purveyor items. Atoms will also be on sale through October 25, allowing you to save big on Atoms to spend on new clothing and armor, C.A.M.P. items, emotes, and more. 

Trick or Treat with Spooky Scorched

Finally, the Halloween season makes its way to Appalachia in Fallout 76! Starting October 19 until November 2, players might stumble upon Scorched dressed up in costume and handing out goodies. Okay, they’re less ‘handing out goodies’ and more ‘dropping goodies when defeated,’ but that’s no reason not to partake in a little trick-or-treating out in Appalachia. Learn more about the Spooky Scorched event in our Inside the Vault feature here.

Whether you’re a newcomer or wasteland veteran, ring in Bombs Drop Day with your fellow Vault Dwellers and jump into Fallout 76 today! For more news and information on Fallout 76, head on over to fallout.com or check out our official Twitter account.
