This time, everyone who bought Fallout 76 will get something – this is Bethesda‘s new method to boost the sales this year.
Everyone who has already acquired Fallout 76 and logged into it will receive Fallout Classic Collection for free. It contains three games (Fallout 1, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics), and it applies to everyone, which means not only the PC players but the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will get the trilogy on PC, as the classic Fallout titles are not available on said two consoles.
Bethesda’s Twitter claims that the Steam keys are planned to be sent out in early 2019. Those who want to buy Fallout 76 in 2019 (we’d ask why you would do that though…) will not receive Fallout Classic Collection with the three old games for free.
The joke here is that the publisher tries to be a cheapskate once again – on Steam, the three games are available for six dollars/euros. If they tried giving a newer game for free (like Fallout 4), then the offer would be decent, but this way, it is a no comment situation…
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. pic.twitter.com/U8pJwrk0PV
