Fallout 4 base game free with XBOX live gold (may be account specific)

33
LocalFound 24th Jan
Just logged into my xbox and found that I can install base fallout 4 for free. Can't find anything about this anywhere but just double checked on the MS store on my PC and it says 'with Xbox Live Gold, play this game for free or buy it to own'. Presume it's not a 14 days trial and is just free at the moment???

On mine it says it's £13.39 and gives me the options "Install on Xbox One" or "Buy to Own". Which sounds like a free trial to me

What I'm thinking never seen Microsoft or anyone for that matter make a game account specific.
For me it saying I've purchased it. I never have, but weirdly says I bought it 12/2/13. It wasn't released until 2015.

My ‘purchase’ date (which I never have digitally) is the same as the last time I renewed my xbox live gold.

Mods added that…
F2P for awhile, thanks for letting us know tho
I would say this as a free play days game for this weekend, usually gets made available on the store before they announce
Just found the same. Says owned? But I’ve never bought it.

Correct me if I’m wrong though, but it doesn’t normally say ‘owned’ until you’ve accepted the deal and added it to your library?

Nope just gives the price £13.99 mate I’ve got it on disc so would be nice to have the free digital one and sell the disc but never I’ve never even started it yet
Strange as it does look more like a full freebie rather than a trial??

Yep this happens with a different game pretty much every month. It's available to download before MS officially announce it. 99% sure it's free play days.
Right got a mate to try it and it says play for him then just sends him back to the home screen saying fallout needs a update . No idea what’s going on but it’s got to be a glitch there’s no other expalination

If it's a glitch it will be revoked.

We've been here a few times before, I think Rise of the Tomb Raider was the last one. It's generally not the case, sadly.

I can't even see Fallout 4 working on the store? microsoft.com/sto…ncz

Possibly store issues?

GWG possibly?

GWG possibly?


very unlikely, would prob start with an earlier one like Fallout 3 or New Vegas, way too for this esp since the Game of the year edition came out few months before Xmas.

Its already been free for a weekend before as well, but then again Overwatch has been free twice for a weekend. If it is the weekend, its probably to encourage people to play it more, get further and be more tempted to buy it, or get the DLC

The free weekend has been confirmed on Reddit. Aparrantly an Xbox dash ad was spotted.
this is on free play days. why is it getting heat
Thanks Op
Just so people are aware in future, this ALWAYS happens when a title goes into Free Play Days before it gets officially announced. Probably down to the store updates and various time zones.

Downloading now.

EDIT - And just like that, the dashboard home has refreshed and there it is. F4 Free Play Days. Thanks MS.

I had this when Halo 5 was a free to play weekend. I think the date of purchase is maybe the date you signed up to Xbox live or when you purchased your console. Was for me anyway.

Temporarily free game that you don't get to keep, designed to entice you to buy the game once it's no longer free, voted cold.
It's only free for the weekend, as free play days. same happened with Skyrim. Hold on to your physical copies yet

Was added to my library as well... already own
