Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel are free on GOG for 48 hours, the DRM-free digital distribution service has announced. As a news article on Polygon states, developer Interplay Entertainment is losing the Fallout franchise rights to Bethesda later this year, so once 2013 is over, GOG won’t be able to sell the post-apocalyptic role-playing games anymore. Nevertheless, people who purchase the games before 2014 will still be able to download them.
The giveaway is a celebration of GOG’s 2013 DRM-Free Winter Sale which offers the entire catalog of more than 600 titles for at least 50% off their usual price. Interestingly, well-known YouTube personalities will promote daily deals and GOG users can vote on bundles they would like to see 80% off. Also, GOG members can choose one of three mystery deals.
It’s worth pointing out that this sale will be covered by the Money Back Guarantee program, which let’s you return games that don’t run on your computer.
