It’s that time again! Time to remember the day the bombs dropped in Fallout, and what better way to do that with a host of Fallout 76 events. From October 20 through October 26, celebrate Bombs Drop Day with a Free Play Week on Xbox, game sales, the first-ever discounts for Atoms packs, in-game events like a Legendary Vendor Sale, and a limited Fallout 1st preview! Get all the details on everything happening during the Bombs Drop Day commemoration below.
Free Play Week
From October 20 through October 26, all Xbox Live Gold members can hop into Fallout 76 and play the game for free! This includes the base game experience, as well as Wastelanders and Nuclear Winter. Jump in from the start of the game and if you decide to pick up the game when the Free Play Week ends (good news: it’s on sale!) all your progress will carry over, and so will any Atomic Shop purchases you make during the week. Learn more about the Free Play Week here.

Limited Fallout 1st Preview
Finally, get a taste of a Fallout 1st membership with the free Fallout 1st Preview. In order to claim it, all you have to do is log in between October 20 and October 26, find the free Fallout 1st Limited Preview “item” in the Atomic Shop, and you’ll have access to some of the features offered with the membership.
This trial will give you allow you to use the Scrapbox (which will need to be claimed separately through the Fallout 1st section of the Atomic Shop in order to build it in your C.A.M.P.) and Survival Tent. Just like for full Fallout 1st members, the Scrapbox will give you unlimited storage for your crafting components, and the Survival Tent operates as a placeable fast travel point with a Stash, Sleeping Bag, Scrapbox, Instrument and Cooking Station. (The Survival Tent will be located in your Favorites wheel after you activate your preview.)
You will have access to both of these features until the preview ends on October 26. Once the preview ends, anything in your Scrapbox will persist (you won’t lose any of those precious crafting materials!), but you won’t be able to add anything new.
If you pick up the Fallout 1st Limited Preview from the Atomic Shop, you’ll also get a couple of other goodies that Fallout 1st members have access to. This month’s free in-game items are the Mechanic’s Wallpaper and Mechanic’s Floor and Foundation. Like any scrap you place in the Scrapbox, these items will remain yours after the preview ends.
