Fallout 76 Is Enjoying A Resurgence On Xbox Series X|S Right Now

This has definitely been the month of Fallout, and it's clearly being represented in the number of people playing Fallout 76 on Xbox Series X and S right now - the game has its highest player count on those consoles since October of 2022.

This is according to data from analysis firm Circana, as revealed by its Executive Director earlier today:

There are a bunch of reasons why this doesn't come as much of a surprise. Firstly, Fallout 76 is being given away free with Amazon Prime Gaming right now, and it's also free to play across all platforms over the next week.

And of course, there's just a lot of hype around the TV series right now, so Xbox fans will be flocking to the likes of Fallout 76 and Fallout 4 over the next few weeks. The latter is getting a next-gen upgrade in late April as well, so we're assuming that'll result in a significant number of players returning to a game that's almost 10 years old!

In the meantime, if you're enjoying Fallout 76 at the moment, don't forget to claim your "free" Vault 33 Survival Kit perk with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and let us know your thoughts on the game down in the comments below!
