Get $10 If You Downloaded Fallout 4 for Free

Fallout 4

Yesterday we discovered that Fallout 4 could be downloaded for free over on the Xbox Store. Back then, we wondered, with tongue in cheek, whether it was a generous pre-E3 giveaway (unlikely) or a monumental mistake. Turns out it was the latter.

Now Microsoft have messaged players who downloaded Fallout 4 during the ‘free’ period, telling them that they’ve disabled the game. But every cloud… In addition to rectifying their mistake, Microsoft are also giving away $10 credit for the sheer inconvenience of having downloaded a game you didn’t own.

That’s pretty decent of them. And it’s also a nice bit of PR – not only are Microsoft looking humble by admitting they messed it up, they’re also keeping fans on board in the run-up to E3. That should keep most gamers happy and focused on the reward, not the reason for it. You can now use that credit against a copy of Fallout 4, available on the Xbox Store from £49.99.

It’s a costly mistake for them, but fair play for how Microsoft have handled what could’ve been a toxic fallout.
