Fallout 76 Heavily Discounted Less Than Two Weeks After Launch

Fallout 76 Heavily Discounted Less Than Two Weeks After Launch 

Fallout 76 released on November 14th with a price tag of £49.99 in the UK, but with the game sales brought on by Black Friday, the PC version of the game has already received some heavy discounts, less than ten days after the game's launch. 

On the Bethesda storefront and key sellers like Humble are already selling the game's PC version with a 33% discount, reducing the game to £33.49 in the UK. This can be seen in one of two ways, a great deal for new purchasers, or that those who purchased the game at launch have been conned to the sum of £16.50. 

Earlier this week it was reported that Fallout 76's launch sales were down 82.4% when compared to Fallout 4 at physical retailers, a sign that the game may be experiencing lower than expected sales for Bethesda, though this change may be due to an increased number of gamers purchasing their game digitally.

In this case, it is hard to see this discount as anything less than a slap to the face of Fallout 76's pre-purchasers, who purchased the game at a higher price to receive a less polished product. If there was ever an argument for the "don't buy games at launch" bandwagon, this is it.

Words can't save this dude. There are no words that could fix this hot mess of a game, only actions. Plus, even if they DO fix all the bugs, pretty up the graphics, etc, that still leaves the rest of the issues with the core gameplay itself. I'm not a game programmer, but it looks like there are issues here that cannot easily be solved without changing a lot of CORE stuff. But that's just one uneducated man's opinion.Quote
