Fallout 4 Pre-order on Xbox One gets Fallout 3 for Free


The offer is interesting because when you pre-order Fallout 4 on the Xbox One console, the developers Bethesda will allow you to download Fallout 3 for free on the Xbox 360 console.

And, the good news doesn’t end there because as confirmed during the E3 2015 conference, Fallout 3 will be one of the games that will have full backward compatibility in the coming months. By the time the new game launches on the next gen console, you will be able to play the old one as well on the same hardware using an emulator. Microsoft and the team at Xbox have also revealed information about how they have managed to make old games run on the Xbox One console that is a bit complicated because it emulates a console within a console.

Official Announcement is in

The Bethesda Blog made a decision confirming that players who pre-order Fallout 4 now will be receiving codes to download Fallout 3. Being a limited period offer, it is not going to last too long especially if you are a fan of the series and doesn’t own the game on the said platform. Even for players who already have it on the PC or the PlayStation consoles, they do have the option to not only buy the game but also be able to play Fallout 3 on Xbox One with its backwards compatibility feature.

PC gamers may not be too excited by this feature because it has been the same computers that have been doing this job for years now. But, it makes an enormous difference in the console world. Sony talked about the feature but confirmed that they have no plans to add it to their Playstation 4 console. Instead, they are probably going to release are-mastered version of multiple game titles. Players have to pay $60 or so to own the same games that are already in their Playstation 3 library.

Shelter is a Top Seller

At the moment, Fallout Shelter on iOS is the hottest games in the mobile gaming industry. Pushing big titles like Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans, Shelter has reached the number one position with millions of downloads already. It allows you to enjoy living in the Fallout universe and also running a hotel like a setup on your own. The strategy game is fun, and when it launches on Android, it is going to break a lot of records.
