Huge fan of the Fallout series? Looking to upgrade your console? How would you like to win a free, custom-made, Fallout 76 version of Microsoft’s Xbox One X console?
Bethesda’s officially announced Fallout 76, a new online game in the Fallout universe that puts players into the shoes of a Vault Dweller from Vault 76. The game is a prequel to the previous games and it’s set in the mountains of West Virginia.
As expected, Bethesda’s game comes with enhancements for Microsoft’s Xbox One X. Enhancements include 4K Ultra HD and HDR support. You won’t get these features if you’re playing the game on the original Xbox One.
With many games now coming with support for Sony’s PS4 Pro and Microsoft’s Xbox One X, you might be considering an upgrade in 2018.
Before you go out and spend $300+ on a new Xbox One X, you’ll want to enter Bethesda’s Fallout 76 sweepstakes.
Bethesda’s announced a sweepstakes to help build its social media following and the grand prize is a brand new Fallout 76 Xbox One X.
The hardware inside the console is the same as the one you’d find at your local retailer, but it looks a little bit different than the standard model. If you’re a collector or you simply want a new console, here’s how you can enter yourself in the Fallout 76 Xbox One X sweepstakes.
How to Win a Free Fallout 76 Xbox One X
First, the caveats.
You must be 18 years old, or older, to throw your name into the hat. The account you’re entering from must be public, not private. And you must enter the contest before Friday, June 15, 2018 at 11:59:59 PM EDT. Once the clock strikes midnight, you’re out of the running.
You can enter the contest on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. If you wish to enter on Twitter, here’s what you need to do:
- Follow the official Fallout Twitter page with the Twitter account used to submit the entry into the sweepstakes.
- Retweet the tweet that references the custom Fallout 76 Xbox One X
To enter via Facebook, follow these steps:
- Like the official Fallout Facebook page.
- Like the official Fallout contest post and leave a comment about your favorite Fallout 76 news.
And if you want to enter via Instagram, here’s how to get that done:
- Follow the official Fallout Instagram page and Like the official contest post.
- Leave a comment on the official contest post about favorite Fallout 76 news.
Bethesda says it will select three winners (one from Twitter, one from Facebook, and one from Instagram) on or around Monday, June 18th.
Fallout 76 comes in three editions which include the standard version, a Deluxe version that features some additional in-game bonus items, and a Power Armor Edition that features a real Power Armor helmet and other collectibles.
It arrives November 14th after a beta this summer.
Pre-Order If You Want the Power Armor Edition
If you want the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition, you'll want to pre-order.
The Power Armor Edition is a $200 bundle that nets you a copy of the game and some unique items. These items include:
Bethesda says supply is going to be limited which means it could sell out before launch this November. In fact, it's already sold out at some retailers with no word on when stock will return. Amazon recently got resupplied, but the stock sold out in hours.
If you went through the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition debacle back in 2015 and want to avoid a similar disaster this year, make sure you pre-order the game.
Most retailers will let you cancel for free if you decide you don't want to spend $200.
