Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you may be aware that Fallout 76 didn’t launch to what anyone would consider critic acclaim, but worry not, as Bethesda has risen to the rescue by offerings players a free trip to the series seemingly brighter past.
The announcement came directly from Bethesda’s Twitter account, where the company stated “ANYONE who logged into the full release of #Fallout76 in 2018 will receive an entitlement for Fallout Classic Collection on PC. This applies to Xbox One and PS4 players, too. The entitlement is expected to go live in early January.” meaning that wether you’ve played Fallout 76 for 30 seconds or 30 decades, you can get a piece of sweet Fallout of the past.
Fallout’s classic collection includes: Fallout 1, the first entry of the series, Fallout 2, its successor and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, a tactics take on the first person RPG series.
This isn’t the first time the company has offered the Fallout Collection for free however, as not only was this collection a previous pre-order bonus for Fallout’s latest entry, but at one time was available free of charge for Steam players. Furthermore, there have been early bundles in the past that have included the following titles, most notably in the form of the re-release of Fallout New Vegas in the Xbox One format.
While this may have been the company’s first step towards fixing Fallout 76’s flawed launch, not all of its fans are happy. Some fans are specifically happy, as twitter user @GreatForest 111 said “this means i can own every fallout, okay this is epic!” but others, not so much. One fan under the Twitter name of @AndrewSnook11 stating “So if you bought a half assed shit game you will feel less ripped off because you get some good games that other company made like 10 years ago. Cool”
Fallout 76 is a multiplayer take on the Fallout franchise and is currently available on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
