Fallout 76 gets surprise event at the perfect time

Fallout 76 adheres to a fairly predictable schedule of events dictated by a community calendar that is released every so often, so paying attention to that will always give you a good idea of ​​what’s going to happen in the game on any given weekend. Things sometimes don’t go as planned with events being moved to a later date, but this weekend the opposite happened – players got a bonus event and it couldn’t have happened at a better time.

The bonus event in question is a no-nonsense Double XP event. You play the game, you get twice the experience – simple as that. The official Fallout account teased players with this extra reward this week by offering a community poll where all the answers were “yes” and saying afterwards that players would indeed get a Double XP event.

It’s the perfect weekend for this kind of event for two reasons. First, the default community calendar is still in effect, so there’s more to it than just Double XP. In addition to that event, the previously released calendar stated that this weekend would include the Gold Rush, Double Mutations, and Minerva’s Big Sale Weekend events. The Fallout account confirmed that the two main events – Gold Rush and Minerva’s Sale – are still happening alongside the Double Mutations event, so a total of four different events are taking place in Fallout 76 this weekend.

In addition, the game is also one of the free PlayStation Plus titles of the month. Since it’s free to keep for those with an active PlayStation Plus subscription, anyone starting this week in the Appalachian Wasteland for the first time will get a decent head start if they play this weekend. Things will return to normal on January 17 once the long weekend of Double XP and other incentives is over, so those who want to take advantage of these events have until Tuesday to do so.
