All classic Fallout games available FREE for 48 hours!

Holiday season is upon us! If you are a long-time GOG.com user you know well enough--or if you're relatively new to our service, you're about to learn--that we just love offering great games for free whenever it's possible. This year for instance, we've given away innumerable copies of the action-rpg gem Torchlight. Today, we're taking our gifting habit a step further. No, actually make that two steps, as we're handing out a package of three games this time around. For the upcoming 48 hours you'll be able to add Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics to your GOG.com collection, completely FREE of charge. That's $0.00 (or, if you prefer the currency of the nuclear wasteland, 0.00 bottle caps) for all the three classic games in the legendary post-apocalyptic RPG series, until Saturday, December 14, at 1:59PM GMT.

Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics for FREE on GOG.com video

Section updated: Don't forget about your gamer friends that may not know GOG.com yet! Sadly, for the sake of unburdening what servers we have, we had to turn off the option for gifting free games. But you can always just let them know they can sign up with GOG.com and claim a free gift of Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics. On top of that, when they register to our service, they'll receive all the 12 free games we add to all the newly-created accounts. That way your friends will start their adventure with GOG.com with a collection of 15 great games total already on their virtual shelves! Be kind, share the good news! :-)

Please note that all three classic Fallout titles are pending right holder change. Sadly, to the best of our knowledge, we'll be forced to remove Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics from our offer. That doesn't mean, however, that you won't be able to download them if they are already a part of collection by then. Secure your copies today (or anytime before Saturday, December 14, at 1:59PM GMT)!

While you come to grab your free classic Fallout games, make sure to stay a while and browse through our 2013 DRM-Free Winter Sale selection of 600+ games discounted by 50% or more, special bundle deals up to 80% off, and daily personal deals, including the mysteriously mysterious mystery box! All that and more, now covered with our new 30-day Worldwide Money Back Guarantee, for online game-shopping safer than ever before!

We're currently experiencing server issues due to the highest traffic ever noted on GOG.com. We did anticipate much interest in our 2013 DRM-Free Winter Sale, as well as our Fallout 1,2, & Tactics giveaway, but the number of visits exceeded our highest expectations by far. And we mean FAR. For today, we've prepared double the number of servers that were needed to support our highest day in traffic to date, but it turned out to be not nearly sufficient. We're working on quadrupling our server supply, now.

We're terribly sorry for all the inconvenience you might encounter today, while visiting GOG.com store. If you're new to the site, rest assure that this is far from our day-to-day standards. We're working around the clock until all the problems are fixed, and everyone can enjoy everything we have to offer. If you've encountered any problems, please give it some time. Most issues will be resolved automatically, soon, as the first batch of extra servers is coming on-line right now. If you're affected by something more serious, please be assured that our support team will assist you and fix whatever needs fixing.

Again, we apologize for the user experience, that is not up to our usual standards.

I have a feeling these classic Fallouts will end up close to the top of the Wishlist once they're removed ;)

Vote away folks, vote away.

And bug the hell out of the publishers.

Randalator: So, any official comment on whether unredeemed gift codes will remain valid after the games are pulled?

JMich: None yet. I can try to dig up the blue comments from last year concerning XIII, but the gift codes should work indefinitely.
For a year at the least. http://www.gog.com/forum/general/xiii_removed_from_the_catalog/post90

I sure hope so. I'm not stockpiling on middle fingers to Bethesda just to end up middle-finger-less in the foreseeable future...
Weirdly enough, TET isn't the best source of answer. Bonus codes have expiration dates, gift codes do not. Bonus codes are 8 characters in length, gift codes are 16.
I was waiting for Fallout 1 & 2 to go on sale! Now I have it for free!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU GOG!! YOU ARE AWESOME!

Novotnus: Why do I always miss stuff like this? :)
Note to: self.
Pay closer attention to release topics.
Oh, but that one wasn't pulled because of intellectual property bullshit, it was removed because the complaints about it were severe enough for it to be removed (everyone who bought it on gog got their money back).


By the way, just checked the download for XIII, still works fine. Same goes for the extras and the game itself even got a version 2.0 update somewhere along the way.
Thank you, GOG!
Thank you so much GOG!!!!!


One of my favourite games saga... for free (i already owned Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas before) and all that extra content..... i would marry you if I could!!!!
hell yeah! looks like I be staying up late tonight

Yes, they do say "valid indefinitely", hope it stays so after the games are pulled.

That's what I mean... I'm always up to some good scammer-bashing and I always miss it :)
So now I'm looking at a text file with a hundred codes in it. Beautiful. I think I'll stop here.

What about you guys?

*<snip>, none of this matters*

By the way, if you want to compile all your codes neatly and automatically, do this:
1) Pull up all of your gift emails on one page (that's what I did with Gmail). If you can't, try to find some way to show all of your emails on one page.
2) Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C.
3) Download Notepad++ if you don't have it already. Create a new file and drop your selected text in there.
4) Ctrl+F. Go to the mark tab. Put this in the box: "Your gift certificate", without quotes. Select "bookmark line" and make sure the search mode is "normal". Press the Mark All button.
5) Now go back to the main window. At the top, go to Search > Bookmark > Cut all bookmarked lines.
6) Open a new file and paste, or clear everything from the current page and paste. Press Ctrl+F again and go to the replace tab.
7) In the first box put "Your gift certificate " without quotes and leave the second box blank. Click replace all, then replace the first box text with " contains:" and do the same thing. If there are tabs to the left of the codes, drop a tab character in the first box and do it again.
It's meant as a gesture, a gift. not to abuse the darn thing, its people like you who clog up the servers.
Hope you are proud on yourself.

Lol, I tend to go to my account tab and click on "gifts."
This has a list of all the codes and if I want to know what one is... I click it.
Fallout games for free, I think my head may implode

I play a number of free online games and I signed up to Gog so i could play Dungeon Keeper which was only $2.99 and was my fav game for like a decade as a kid

I'm going to have to check in on this site more often now if there's awesomeness like free fallout going on
