Fallout 3 Codes From Xbox One Promotion to Expire in February

Unclaimed Fallout 3 will soon be invalid

Xbox One Users who have yet to claim their copy of Fallout 3, given to those who had pre-ordered Fallout 4, had better do so sooner than later. Apparently they won’t be valid forever.

The aforementioned promotion was originally revealed during this year’s E3, when Fallout 4 was confirmed for Xbox One. Those who pre-ordered Bethesda’s latest game were rewarded with a code that, when entered, would give said pre-orderer a copy of Fallout 3 at no extra charge.

Thanks to Gamespot, we now know that these promotional codes have a relatively short lifespan. February the 8th of 2016 is the date that the code expires on. While this is still several months away, it is easy to forget about such things. Claiming the copy of Fallout 3 is as easy as entering a code; total bummer for the slackers out there.

Fallout 4 has already trumped Grand Theft Auto 5 in terms of number of concurrent users (people playing the game at the same time), before it was even out for 24 hours.


Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
