Huge discounts on “Fallout 4” as well

While the free weekend offer is limited to PC and Xbox One players only, Bethesda has also come up with the plan which would benefit players on all three platforms. After the free weekend offer starts, "Fallout 4" will be up for sale at huge discounts through Steam, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Store.

The game would be sold at discounts of as much as 67 percent during this time and these discounts will be valid for the base game and also for the Season Pass.

E3 2017 is just around the corner and with this discount and free weekend offers, Bethesda may be hinting toward releasing a VR compatible version of “Fallout 4.” This theory has been further substantiated by the fact that the developers have been constantly talking about the VR technology and what the future may hold.

If Bethesda indeed decides to release VR Fallout 4, then this sale would make perfect sense.
