While gamers wait anxiously for a Fallout 4 announcement, Good Old Games launched a new 48 hour promotion Thursday that gives the old-school Fallout titles away to PC gamers for free.

Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout: Tactic are all available to download for free from Good Old Games until 9 a.m. EST on Satuday, Dec. 14.

The original Fallout was released in 1997 by Interplay Entertainment and introduced gamers to a post-apocalyptic future circa the 1950s with Vaults, the PiP-Boy 2000 and a wasteland full of mutants and bandits. It was followed by Fallout 2 in 1998 which is set 80 years in the future from the first game and features a larger game world and more extensive storyline.

Meanwhile, Fallout Tactics is a slightly different spin on the series as it focuses on the tactical combat and strategy portions of the Fallout universe and allows for Continuous Turn-Based, Individual Turn-Based, and Squad Turn-Based combat. It's a more linear affair than the previous open-world games.
