Items tagged with fallout 76

To say that Fallout 76 has been marked by many mishaps and failures is likely an understatement. The game was incredibly buggy when it was released in November 2018 and has continued to remain so. It now appears that some gamers may receive some form of compensation for their bad experience. EB Games Australia will now reportedly give refunds to many Fallout 76 players. Australian gamers complained to the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission that EB Games had refused to refund players after their poor experience with Fallout 76. EB Games had told customers that they were not entitled to a refund if a DLC or one-use code had been redeemed, if the request was outside of EB’s “7... Read more...
Make no mistake, if the apocalypse comes to be, we are all going to be left in a cutthroat world where anything goes. Fallout 76 plays on that theme, to an extent, though an annoying hack is taking things to the extreme and ruining the game on PC. The hack allows players to steal items from another person's inventory, including weapons and armor. This is not done through person-to-person trading, but is accomplished by way of a remote hack. What's particularly frustrating is it only requires the hacker to be in the vicinity of another player. As long as the victim can be seen on screen, that person can be stripped of their items (save for caps, scrip, access to various locations, and stash box/scrap... Read more...
Bethesda has seriously hurt its relationship with fans of the long-running Fallout franchise. Not only was the latest game in the franchise, Fallout 76, rife with bugs and issues at launch, but Bethesda also continues to make missteps in dealing with the community. The latest Bethesda blunder has been banning an interactive map maker for reporting a bug. The group allegedly discovered a bug in the game, and once it was reported, they were banned from the game. The creator of Map76 says that the ban came after he and his group discovered a flaw that allows players to easily acquire legendary drops. He ran experiments and eventually found the way that players were tricking the purveyor into taking... Read more...
Bethesda has blundered around with the latest game in the very popular Fallout franchise. Fallout 4 was a home run, with gamers loving pretty much everything about the game, but Fallout 76 has been ill-received by many fans of the franchise. Bethesda has seemed so far to be unable to get out of its own way and listen to players about changes the game needs to be enjoyable. However, finally, after many months since Fallout 76 launched to mixed reviews, Bethesda has announced that it is going to launch a Public Test Server (PTS). Bethesda notes that the PTS is currently in the works and it hopes to get the server up and running in 2020. It says that once most of the kinks are worked out of the... Read more...
Bethesda was at E3 2019, and during its showcase, it offered up a pair of trailers that show all the gaming goodness coming to Fallout 76 this year. Gamers have been very critical of Fallout 76 since it launched with many fans of the franchise seeing aspects of the game as nothing more than a money grab by Bethesda. Recently, Bethesda executive Todd Howard announced that he recognized the failures the game was making before it launched noting that some of the criticism of the game was "well deserved." During the Bethesda E3 2019 Showcase, the game publisher announced that a pair of new and game-changing updates were coming to Fallout 76. The best news for gamers who are still giving Fallout 76...

Fallout 76 has received quite a bit of criticism since its release in November 2018. The game has a 52 rating on “Metacritic” and has been lambasted for its meager content and prevalent bugs. Bethesda Game Studios Director Todd Howard has finally spoken out about the poor reception of the game. Todd Howard admitted in a recent interview that criticism of Fallout 76 has been “well deserved”. Todd Howard was interviewed by Ryan McCaffrey of IGN Unfiltered about the general reception of Fallout 76. Howard argued that the developers knew that Fallout 76, “...is not the type of game that people are used to from us, and we're going to get some criticism on it.” He... Read more...
Fallout 76 has had a rough time since it launched, with much of the blame be squarely placed on developer Bethesda. The game was unpopular enough that it was given away with $5 thumbstick purchases for the PS4. Bethesda has been working to improve the game based on feedback, but so far not many major improvements have landed. Bethesda has Fallout 76 player characters setup so that your gear wears out over time and you must spend time at a workbench getting it back in shape. Past Fallout titles had similar mechanics for repairing equipment as well. For gamers who are annoyed at "wasting" time fixing their gear, Bethesda has unveiled its latest way to reach into your wallet... Read more...
Fallout 76 is trying to change into the game that most fans of the franchise wanted, and to do that Bethesda is telling gamers what they can expect for at least the first part of the year. Bethesda notes that it has now been 100 days since Fallout 76 launched, and to celebrate that milestone it has offered up a roadmap for 2019. Bethesda also says thanks to the gamers who have stuck with it while it works with players to "figure this online experience out together." Bethesda notes that it has fixed many of the top issues that players had with the game, and made a bunch of improvements, including some upgrades under the hood that aren't visible. Server stability has increased by a claimed 300%... Read more...
Fallout 76 is one of the most maligned video games in recent memory. Not only did the game launch with serious bugs that made it nearly unplayable for some gamers, but Bethesda has also wielded the ban hammer willy nilly on people for using simple mods to improve graphics. With all the poor reviews of the game, it was discounted early on, and we have seen the bundles with the game going for impressively low prices recently. Polish retailer X-Kom was running what may be the most embarrassing giveaway of Fallout 76 that Bethesda will endure. The website was giving away free copies of Fallout 76 with the purchase of overstocked PS4 thumbsticks that sold for about $5. The website ran through all... Read more...
Bethesda wants gamers to like Fallout 76; while all the other titles in the franchise have been well received, Bethesda hasn't similar critical success with Fallout 76. One of the ways that Bethesda has tried to get gamers to play the game is by touting updates that will come in the future. A new PvP mode will land "in a future update" according to Bethesda. Once the update has landed, players will get to choose between Adventure mode, which is the original way of playing the game, and Survival mode. Bethesda says that this Survival mode is based on feedback from the more competitive players of the game wanting a more significant challenge, fewer restrictions, and more incentives for PvP...

Bethesda has had more than a few problems with Fallout 76, though fans of the franchise had very high hopes. The biggest issue early on was that the game was riddled with bugs, rendering it unplayable many players. In addition, Bethesda has at times been rather heavy-handed with the ban hammer, with reports that some players were being banned for using mods to improve game graphics, though modding has historically been a huge part of the Fallout ecosystem in past franchise releases. Today, a new report has surfaced that players are using glitches to access a hidden developer room in the game, and once inside they are stealing items and paints to sell to other players for real...

Two days into the new year and already Bethesda has a new bug in Fallout 76 to annoy gamers. The new bug is leaving gamers unable to access the in-game nuke codes. Without the nuke codes, players aren't able to deploy nukes around the map. The strangest part about this bug is that since Bethesda has been so bad at communicating with players of the game, many people assumed the removal of nuke codes was intentional. Bethesda has now stepped up and confirmed that nuke code issue was not intentional, stating that it is an "issue with Nuke silo access," and it is investigating the problem right now. Speculation is that the problem with nuke access has to do with the in-game calendar since the nukes... Read more...
Bethesda had a rough 2018, with the highly anticipated Fallout 76 launching to poor reviews and many complaining about the bugs that plagued the game. Bethesda made a bad situation worse when it offered some gamers refunds on the game only to go back on that offer down the road. Some gamers allegedly found themselves banned for using mods to improve graphics in the game creating more ire against Bethesda. However, the game publisher is looking to make things better in 2019 and has promised some upcoming changes for the game. The very first Inside the Vault post for 2019 was published on New Year's Day, and in that post, Bethesda promises big things are to come for Fallout fans. Later this... Read more...

On the second-to-last day of #12DaysofBethesda,... Read more...
One of the greatest things about the Fallout franchise for many fans is that Bethesda has always made it very easy to modify the game. Mods are a huge part of the Fallout franchise, or at least they were before Fallout 76. So far, Fallout 76 has been nearly universally panned in reviews for a myriad of reasons. Some have complained that the game is too similar to prior iterations, while others lament the fact that the game is online only and you are forced to play against other annoying humans. The latest thing to irritate fans of Fallout is Bethesda's use of the banhammer against modders. The publisher has been banning Fallout 76 players from the game for using third-party mods to make the game... Read more...
There have been mixed reactions to Fallout 76, the first game in the franchise to deviate from single-player gameplay and offer players an online multiplayer experience. While not an official apology, Bethesda appears to be extending an olive branch to anyone who purchased and played Fallout 76, and wasn't happy with the way it shipped. "ANYONE who logged into the full release of Fallout 76 in 2018 will recent an entitlement for Fallout Classic Collection on PC. This applies to Xbox one and PlayStation 4 players, too. The entitlement is expected to go live in early January," Bethesda announced on Twitter and Instagram. The Fallout Classic Collection includes the original Fallout (released in... Read more...
Bethesda can't seem to get out of its own way these days. The company has been beset with complaints about Fallout 76, a game that was highly anticipated and launched to terrible reviews. The unstable and bug laden game pushed some to ask for a refund on the title, which Bethesda agreed to for some gamers early on before reneging on that refund promise. A serious error on the Bethesda support website resulted in support tickets being viewable by anyone who went to the support page. Details on those support tickets that could be seen by anyone included the customer name, email address, and other personal information. Among the details leaked on the support tickets were receipts from Fallout Power... Read more...
Fallout 76 players may finally have one thing to smile about. Bethesda has promised that Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition customers will receive replacement canvas bags. The canvas bag debacle is just one of the many difficulties surrounding the release of Fallout 76. Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition customers should a submit a ticket to Bethesda’s support site by January 31, 2019 to receive their canvas bag. Customers must provide proof of purchase, which must include the product name, date of purchase, and purchase amount. If a customer purchased their game from Xbox Live, PlayStation, or Steam stores, they must include their Gamertag, PSN ID, Steam ID, or email address. Bethesda promises... Read more...
After facing backlash from gamers over a boatload of Fallout 76 bugs, allegedly reneging on refund offers, and coming under investigation by a law firm specializing in class action lawsuits, Bethesda is ready to talk. In a Reddit post, the developer says that it is promising to be more transparent in the future with gamers on how it works to make improvements and enhancements to Fallout 76. "We didn’t want you to think the silence meant nothing was happening," wrote the company on Reddit. "We're sorry and understand this was not the right approach, and we’ll work to make a better bridge between you and the dev team at BGS." Rather than keep its customers in... Read more...
Bethesda has been taking it from all sides with regards to its latest game release: Fallout 76. Gamers have complained about the numerous bugs, a massive day-one patch that was actually larger than the game itself, and overall gameplay mechanics. Likewise, reviewers have also panned the game, which has resulted in some rather dismal sales numbers (in Europe at least). Amazon even recently discounted the game by $25, which is unheard of for a game just a few weeks old. Given that such a buggy release isn't something that a paying customer wants to put up with, some gamers have taken up the issue with Bethesda asking for a refund. Last week, we reported on one such gamer... Read more...
When games are selling well (fresh out the gate), they rarely received significant discounts. Game developers want to cash in on the popularity of new games for as long after launch as they can. Typically once sales start to slow a bit, the game will see a discount to give those who were on the fence about buying it the push needed to jump aboard. Fallout 76 has only been on the market for a couple of weeks now, but already the game has been discounted by a large amount on Amazon. The normal retail price for this game is $59.99, and as of now, Amazon is selling the game for $34.99, which is a $25.00 discount for the standard version of the game. The Tricentennial version of the game is on sale... Read more...
Bethesda's online RPG Fallout 76 hasn't even been available for two full weeks yet, but given how much there has been to talk about, it's felt like a lot longer. That is unless, of course, you are one of the players who decided to hop into the online Fallout universe, one that is plagued with more bugs than you can shake a rifle at. As a quick recap, the game launched with a massive patch weighing in at 56GB. Days earlier, Bethesda penned a letter on its website to warn fans that the game would be buggy. This move was likely unsurprising to everyone who read it, as a buggy launch has become standard fare for Bethesda. Fallout 76 takes the number of issues to the next level and many... Read more...
