Fallout 76 Steam release will have a perk for existing players

Fallout 76 Steam release will have a perk for existing players

Fallout 76 launched about a year and a half ago, but when it did, it was exclusively available through Bethesda's own launcher. Slowly but surely, Bethesda has been trending in the same direction as other major publishers throughout the years, launching its games through a first-party launcher instead of letting stores run by third-parties take a cut of each sale. In regards to Fallout 76, that's all about to change, because the game is finally about to make its way to Steam.

How does Bethesda keep screwing up so badly with Fallout 76?

How does Bethesda keep screwing up so badly with Fallout 76?

Almost a year out from launch, the odyssey of Fallout 76 keeps getting stranger. Today, Bethesda announced that it's implementing a new monthly subscription service for Fallout 76 called Fallout 1st. Subscriptions in a pay-to-play title generally aren't a great idea to start with, but given all of the blowback Fallout 76 has received over the past year, this was a particularly harebrained move on the part of Bethesda.

Fallout 76 monthly subscription revealed: All the Fallout 1st details

Last week, Bethesda announced the delay of Fallout 76's Wastelanders update, which will add NPCs to the game. That update won't be launching until sometime in Q1 2020, but there was some encouraging news to go along with that delay, as Bethesda also revealed that it had finished working on private servers and would soon send the feature live. Today is the big day in that regard, with the company revealing a new subscription service called Fallout 1st.

Fallout 76 Wastelanders NPC update hit with delay, but there’s a silver lining

Fallout 76 Wastelanders NPC update hit with delay, but there’s a silver lining

At launch, one of the main complaints about Fallout 76 was that its world didn't feel very lively. This was down to the lack of NPCs in the game, despite their presence in every other Fallout game before it. At E3 earlier this year, Bethesda announced that it would be fixing the problem of Fallout 76's empty world by adding NPCs to the game.

Fallout Legacy Collection confirmed, but it’ll be hard to get

Following a premature Amazon listing that indicated as much, Bethesda has officially announced plans to launch Fallout Legacy Collection, a bundle featuring six Fallout titles for PC. The collection will be available to order in time for the holidays, according to the company, but many fans will struggle to get their own set due to the product's limited release.

Fallout 76 power armor helmet recalled due to mold risks

Fallout 76 has had a pretty rough go so far, and now things are getting just a little bit worse. A power armor helmet replica made for Fallout 76 has been recalled due to a risk of mold growing on the inside of it.

Fallout 76’s paid Repair Kits are causing some controversy

Fallout 76 has already had its share of stumbles in its relatively short life, and now it seems to be making one more. Bethesda has announced that it'll be adding Repair Kits to the in-game shop, and while that may seem innocuous enough at first blush, some players are worried that they'll give those willing to spend an unfair advantage in PvP combat.

Fallout 76 Wild Appalachia update begins rolling out today

Bethesda has officially kicked off the string of content updates it has lined up for Fallout 76 in 2019 with the release of Wild Appalachia. As far as Bethesda's 2019 road map is concerned, the content coming in Wild Appalachia will comprise Fallout 76's spring update, and it'll trickle out slowly over the next couple of months. It all begins with the addition of the Wasteland's favorite pastime: Brewing and distilling.

Fallout 76 glitch drops players into unreleased Vault 63

Fallout 76 glitch drops players into unreleased Vault 63

At this point, glitches and Fallout 76 are something akin to peanut butter and jelly - a pairing so common that it's strange to think of one without the other. Those glitches reared their head again over the weekend, but this time around, they gave us a look inside an area that has so far been closed off to players: Vault 63. A group of players got stuck in the unfinished vault over the weekend while trying to do a completely unrelated quest, and they were able to give us a look inside.

After Fallout 76 stumble, analyst predicts 2019 release for Elder Scrolls VI

After Fallout 76 stumble, analyst predicts 2019 release for Elder Scrolls VI

Even though Bethesda has promised that 2019 will be a big year when it comes to improving Fallout 76, there still isn't much denying that the game hasn't really had the success the company was hoping for. With this in mind, one notable industry analyst has been driven to make a bold prediction for Bethesda in 2019. Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter thinks that Bethesda may move up the release of The Elder Scrolls VI to 2019 in order to compensate for the chilly reception of Fallout 76.

Fallout 76 kicks off 2019 with a game-breaking bug

It seems that Fallout 76 is kicking off 2019 in typical fashion: with a bug that's pretty massive. Nukes currently aren't working in the game, and haven't been since the calendar rolled over into the new year. We haven't been given a reason why nukes aren't working just yet, but we do know that Bethesda is on the case.

Fallout 76 Nuka Dark Rum: The Truth About Glass

Fallout 76 Nuka Dark Rum: The Truth About Glass

There's a new tie-in product for Fallout 76, and it's not for the everyday average gamer. You might've heard about Nuka Cola - especially if you've played a Fallout game before - and you might also have heard early chatter about this Nuka Dark Rum. It was to be a glorious bottle of rum made in the grand tradition of high-quality licensed and Bethesda-endorsed spin-off products of the past. Now, here at the tail end of 2018 as Nuka Dark Rum ships to early buyers, something seems a bit... off.
