Fallout 76 players to receive Fallout Classic Collection for free in January 2019

Fallout 76 is a shared-world multiplayer survival game for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The title marks an all-new direction for Bethesda's establishing post-apocalyptic role-playing series, allowing groups of survivors to explore, build settlements, and uncover secrets of West Virginia. It's a multiplayer experience which requires you to work together and form alliances. The game is notoriously buggy and crammed with other systemic problems, and it appears Bethesda is offering a small apology gift for those who have endured the game's controversial launch window. Today, Bethesda announced that anyone who has played a full release of Fallout 76 will receive the Fallout Classic Collection on PC

The Fallout Classic Collection contains Fallout, Fallout Tactics, and Fallout 2. All three games are great and don't require powerful computers to run. In a message on Twitter, the company said, "Anyone who logged into the full release of Fallout 76 in 2018 will receive an entitlement for Fallout Classic Collection on PC. This applies to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players, too." The entitlement should go live in January.

While free games are always good, there are still a number of problems with Fallout 76 despite several large patches. Thankfully, Bethesda has committed to continual improvements, but it might be a while before we can truly call Fallout 76 a "great experience."
