If you blitz through the main story and have nothing on this weekend you could complete it in that time I reckon.

only if you ignore three quarters of the game, done 180 hrs no repetition and not finished a single ending, this is a huge game if you partake in "all" of it.
Worth the download size. Go over to Nexusmods for extra enjoyment.
If you are trying to blitz through it keep your settlement building to an absolute minimum. worth googling it,you only need to build one. There are other choices which will help you finish it quicker but really this is a 100+ hour game which I loved.

Fallout4 was £6 preowned at Game recently, if you play at the weekend and get addicted....

Preloads are ingenerally only available for games that aren't released yet, I believe?

Edit: I'm talking about Steam here, no idea how consoles work

Having just declared myself "done" with Fallout 4, I highly recommend it. It mostly is more of the same from the previous games (even the engine is the same buggy one, despite what the screenshots may try to say), but it is HUGE. I mean, HUGE. I did all the sidequests I could in my playthrough, along with all of the DLC, and my playtime was a little over five days (about 122 hours). However, that doesn't include doing much exploring of the many locations I never discovered, and I barely touched settlement building beyond what was needed to complete quests.

DLC wise, I had the Season Pass, but the standout one for me was Nuka-World. It's massive, there's lots to do and they've really done well with developing the post-apocalyptic theme park idea. Far Harbor is.. ok, but I found the atmosphere pretty depressing so I didn't enjoy it all that much. The other DLC is mainly settlement-building fluff - good if you like that kinda thing.

So, if you want a game to occupy you for a long stretch and can't afford to keep buying new ones, go for it. Obviously the free weekend will help you decide if it's your kind of game, but it's worth it if you do.
At 66 hours logged and not a single settlement built I have only the final mission left to do in this before I'm done with it. It's quite easy to ignore the majority of the boring side quests and I gave the cold shoulder to most of the factions (the Brotherhood of Steel are total jerks anyway). Good game not great.
it makes me laugh these guys who have done only a tiny fraction of the game stating "it's soso" the joy of FO4 is not how fast you can do it but "what" you can do with it
The settlement building and all the side quests are what makes the game so special, i have my own beach front 5 story mansion with a cellar full of slaves to do the farming scavenging etc, the top floor is a nighclub complete with bar, dance floor, fancy lighting etc(i know too much free time )
i did about 30hrs then started again with the "sim settlements" mod but about 50hrs in I realised that mod was limiting things i could do better without it.
As stated now done over a couple of hundred hours, in comparison to my dalliance with Bioshock Infinite which took me 20hrs and Wolfensteins the neworder/old blood which took about 30hrs combined all at normal difficulty levels

How much is it through Xbox Live then? It says there's discounts on Xbox Live

£16.50, or £36 with the Season Pass. Closest price for the Complete/GOTY edition

Played this for over 8 days before completing the main storyline recently, and that was without any DLC. An excellent game to get absorbed in though some of the bugs were irritating meaning some side stories could not be completed.
My Mrs loves Far Cry and was gutted that this was taking me so much time and so she couldn't watch me do Primal which she bought me in October. Have now started that along with Battlefield which also took a back seat. She was even more upset as I did FO4 straight after FO3 as that came as a free game in the pack I got.
good or bad is for you to judge, but this is objectively the worst fallout game
Got it for PS4 but hardly play it to be honest. It just never grabbed me like New Vegas. Still £40 on Steam which is shocking! Heat anyway for people who fancy a shot over the weekend.
Isn't this game free in every bag of walkers crisps now anyway?

If your mrs ever becomes not your mrs any more let me know
I've just completed the opening sequence, really stunning visuals. Then I entered the "vault" and felt mortified to leave that amazing world behind and into the same decade old boring environment where all the rooms and walls look the same. What do I even do now? And they shot my wife and took my baby omg????!

This probably says more about me than it does about the game, but I sat throught the intro sequence until "war never forgets" or "War never changes" or whatever it was (I genuinely can't remember and I watched it five minutes ago) and uninstalled it.

It's gong to be Skyrim with guns instead of swords, and by the way America stopped the war, guys, as if that really has any bearing (tbh, that's when I really stopped listening).
