Recently, Bethesda removed physical copies of Fallout 76 from stores in various regions. Soon afterward, rumors have emerged saying that Bethesda has been doing that in preparation for the transition of Fallout 76 to a free-to-play game. But Bethesda is not going to do that, although Fallout 76 is the worst game of the series so that not many gamers are willing to give money for it.
“Fallout 76 goes Free-to-Play, I want my money back. Straight up. 500 Atoms ain’t gonna cut it this time. As a diehard fan, there’d be no coming back to that slap in the face,” said an upset gamer on Twitter. Bethesda replied to him by saying that “there is no truth to this rumor.”
Even though the game will still be available for money, Bethesda cut off Fallout 76’s price considerably. Now, you can buy it from Amazon, for example, with only $40, which is by $20 less costly than the launch price.
Even Though It’s The Worst Game of The Series, Fallout 76 Is Not Going To Become A Free-To-Play Game
Bethesda acknowledged that the fans are not happy with the game and tried to apologize to the gamers by letting them download Fallout Classic Collection, which contains Fallout, Fallout Tactics, and Fallout 2. However, only those who logged into Fallout 76 before the end of 2018 would get this offer. Also, the Fallout Classic Collection is only available for PC, but Fallout 76 gamers on every platform can download it.
Fallout 76 launched with a lot of bugs, disappointing the fans. Also, the sales were way below the level of Fallout 4 in 2015, and there were even fewer players than during the Fallout 76 BETA period. That could mean that gamers had already seen a lot of this game before its official launch so that they started looking for other, new titles.
Besides all that, Fallout 76 can become a decent game if Bethesda would change the game’s basic gameplay systems. The games studio has already done that before with its The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but achieving the same with Fallout 76 is much more challenging.
