This trial will allow you to use the Scrapbox (which will need to be claimed separately through the Fallout 1st section of the Atomic Shop in order to build it in your C.A.M.P.) and Survival Tent. Just like for full Fallout 1st members, the Scrapbox will give you unlimited storage for your crafting components, and the Survival Tent operates as a placeable fast travel point with a Stash, Sleeping Bag, Scrapbox, Instrument and Cooking Station. (The Survival Tent will be located in your Favorites wheel after you activate your preview.)
If you pick up the Fallout 1st Limited Preview from the Atomic Shop, you’ll also get a couple of other goodies that Fallout 1st members have access to. This month’s free in-game items are the Mechanic’s Wallpaper and Mechanic’s Floor and Foundation. Like any scrap you place in the Scrapbox, these items will remain yours after the preview ends.
