Fallout is having a resurgence in the wake of its TV adaption, with Bethesda now allowing Prime subscribers to claim Fallout 76 for free.


After experiencing a mixed response on launch in 2018, the online multiplayer action RPG has established a bustling community over the years, with now arguably being the best time to jump in - especially if you've been watching the Amazon show starring Ella Purnell and Walton Goggins.

Fallout 76 takes inspiration from Fallout 4, and with no sign of Fallout 5 being released anytime soon, this does make it the most modern Fallout to date.

So, if you're looking for your Fallout fill on the heels of the new Amazon show, here's how to get your hands on the game before the free promotion expires.

How to get Fallout 76 free with Prime Gaming explained
