Did you recently binge the Fallout show that has everyone from long-time fans to non-gamers more hyped than jet junkies?

Yeah, we did too.

And did it make you really want to play Fallout?

Yeah us too. And apparently lots of other people.

To no surprise, sales of Fallout games have skyrocketed since the release of the Fallout TV Show; with Fallout 4 seeing an increase of nearly 7,500% in copies sold week-over-week.

And aside from all the hype, there’s good reason. Fallout 4 is the most recent single-player release in the franchises’ nearly 30 year history. That, and Fallout 4 is getting a massive next-gen update today (April 25th) that’s totally FREE as long as you own the original game.

Already own Fallout 4 on console or PC? Great! You’re all set.

More Freebies on the Creation Club… and What is the Creation Club

Free Fallout 4 Update Will Come Out in Late April 2024 - Siliconera

What is the Creation Club? In short–Bethesda’s Creation Club is the easiest, safest, most turn-key, Bethesda-approved way to add mods to your copy of Fallout 4 (on both consoles and PCs).

It allows users to purchase and download new mods, weapons, armor, skins, and quests, all created either by Bethesda or by external developers under Bethesda’s supervision. This platform provides a way for players to expand and customize their gameplay experience with high-quality content directly via the games menu; thus avoiding poking around in the actual game files.

Content in the Creation Club is curated and tested by Bethesda, ensuring that it’s integrated smoothly into the game without causing technical issues or requiring players to poke around in the game files. Players can access the Creation Club from within Fallout 4’s main menu, and they can use in-game credits to acquire the available content. This system provides a streamlined way to add new elements to the game while supporting creators who contribute to the platform.

That being said, in addition to all the free new content listed below, we encourage you to explore the thousands of spectacular mods available beyond the Creation Club that are also free:

Enclave Remnants

Enclave Remnants brings the Pre-War cabal, The Enclave, into the Fallout 4 storyline. In this new quest, “Echoes of the Past,” can you stop The Enclave from spreading their dangerous ideology and gaining a foothold in the Commonwealth?

  • Enclave Weapon Skins
  • Enclave Armor Skins
  • Tesla Cannon
  • Hellfire Power Armor
  • X-02 Power Armor
  • Heavy Incinerator

Makeshift Weapon Pack

Ever thought a piggy bank would make a great weapon in a pinch? This weapon pack includes a variety of unconventional objects. And all of them have been transformed into deadly weapons! Such as: a baseball launcher, a nail gun and a piggy bank.

Halloween Workshop

Leftover from an ill-fated Halloween party, thrown by the New England Technocrat Society; these 38 new Halloween decorations include witches, cauldrons, ghouls and more! Decorate for Halloween or make your settlements spooky all year round!
