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 Love Online Games & Fallout
If you like the sound of an online Fallout-style RPG, you might want to put in a Fallout 76 pre-order.
The game is still in development and the gameplay is reportedly still in flux, but it'll be much different than Fallout 4.
That said, the game will have quests and tons of enemies to kill just like Bethesda's traditional single-player RPGs. It'll also have base building (dubbed C.A.M.P.), something Bethesda introduced in Fallout 4 back in 2015. Fallout 76 allows you to build anywhere on the map.
Unlike some games that simply end once you complete the campaign, support for Fallout 76 (like support for Fallout 4) will go on for years. Bethesda says all DLC content released after Fallout 76's release date will be entirely free.
Fallout 76 is going to more Fallout Online/Elder Scrolls Online than Fallout 5. If sharing an open, evolving Fallout world with friends sounds amazing, think about putting in an early order today, tomorrow, or sometime in the near future.
