Today Microsoft has finally send out notifications to users who received the game through this mistaken offer, stating that they won’t be able to play this game in the future.
Kind of an disappointment if you have been one of the lucky ones to receive the Fallout 4 Season Pass for free. Though Microsoft compensates their mistake with sending a $10 gift card to everyone who has downloaded the game with this deal.
