Microsoft revokes free copies of Fallout 4 downloaded from Xbox Store – Polygon

On Thursday, Xbox One owners were able to download Fallout 4, its season pass and its expansions for free, thanks to a pricing error on the Xbox Store. Today, Microsoft issued a bit of bad news to those who were able to download Fallout 4 for free: The company is revoking those licenses.

But Xbox One owners who were quick on the download won’t walk away empty-handed.

Here’s the message the company sent out to some Xbox One owners today:

Our pricing error on Fallout 4 has been fixed and your free download will no longer work. For the inconvenience we will deposit $10 by the end of June in your Microsoft Account. This expires one year from the time it was deposited.

The good news is that Microsoft’s $10 credit is enough to cover a legitimately-acquired copy of Fallout 4‘s Automatron or Wasteland Workshop DLC, if you don’t already own it.
