Journalists have for many years not seen big novelty is so cool.
Multiplayer computer game Fallout 76 came out in the middle of last week, but now it is available for order at a substantial discount. According to PCGamesHardware, for European players in the Xbox Live Store the game is available at a price of about €47 (original price was €70), and a boxed version on the German Amazon will cost and even cheaper – € 30 for a version for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
On the one hand, discounts can be associated with Black Friday, but the gaming industry is unusual to offer for sale a newly released game. In addition, most of the players who bought Fallout 76 at full cost in the first week, will be disappointed by this fact.
Very cool review of relevant publications and scathing reviews of players are a sign that Bethesda have not achieved the desired success with Fallout 76. The rating on the game aggregator Metacritic is 55 points out of 100 for the PC version and 50 points for the PlayStation 4. In turn, gaming portal IGN gave Fallout76 rating 50 out of 100 and 40 out of 100 Gamespot, opening the article with the phrase, “Well, the war has definitely changed.”
In addition, Bethesda is in no hurry to share details about the commercial success of Fallout 76. For comparison, in 2015, the company reported sales of Fallout 4, announcing that the game shipped with a circulation of 12 million copies and brought in $ 750 million in its first day of sales.
