Fallout: New Vegas - Ultimate Edition is currently free on the Epic Games Store

Well over a decade on, it's still a bit of a gem, and newcomers can now grab the whole thing in its Ultimate Edition guise for free over on Epic. This includes the base game and a heap of post-launch DLC, ranging from new weapons and other assorted paraphernalia to new story content.

Fallout: New Vegas is free to add to your Epic Games Store library from today, 25th May, to next Thursday, 1st June. After that date, a new freebie - currently only being referred to as "mystery game" - will become available.
