This will not go well, OP.

A few things:
- FO76 is an incomplete buggy mess
- FO76 is slated for F2P
- FO76 content updates are quickly being abandoned
- FO76's community is abandoning it quickly

Best to walk away on this one.
Bethesda came out and denied it is going F2P...

Not sure if this is a repost, but I was just at Costco and they had Fallout 76 for PS4 on clearance price for $19.97!
Which location were you at?

Also:
GameStop aren’t the only German retailer having trouble moving the game, either; the big electronics chain Saturn are also giving copies of the game away with the Fallout 76 Xbox One bundle. Meaning you’d get an Xbox One, a copy of Fallout 76 and then...another copy of Fallout 76.

Are you sure the additional copy is not because of language reasons? In Quebec, Canada, a lot of these xbox bundles come with the English copy strapped to them as they can't sell an English only bundle due to language laws and the French only bundles struggle...

The one in the box is a download code. They added the physical disc for those that don't have an internet connection ;)

Best to walk away on this one.
- Game was buggy when released, but updates are regular fixing hundreds of bugs unlike most devs
- it is NOT slated f2p, Bethesda confirmed this
- updates to the game along with communications are regular and ongoing
- fanbase is still strong

Get your facts straight before posting. I paid full price and got over 100hrs of fun out of the game. Thats well worth my $ per hour of entertainment... With more content on the way this game is only going to get better. People should stop bashing things for attention. $19.99 is a steal for this game.

Bethesda Allegedly Asking Banned Fallout 76 Mod Users To Write Personal Essays

There's rarely a week where there's not some news about Fallout 76, Bethesda's online multiplayer take on the Fallout universe, for better or worse. It seems the holidays aren't providing any respite to Bethesda, as a story about an alleged customer service interaction is one more log to throw into the fire.

According to Variety, a YouTube video purporting that Bethesda has been banning users for using mods for Fallout 76 has been making the rounds. Banning for mods in general is kind of a strange thing, as some are used just for getting better accessibility or performance out of software. When these modders tried pleading this case to Bethesda's customer service however, the representatives apparently assigned them homework instead.

The video, created by YouTuber JuiceHead, explains that people who were banned received an email back from Bethesda support asking for an essay about why mods are bad. Allegedly, the email sent back says "If you would like to appeal this account closure, we would be willing to accept an essay on ‘Why the use of third party cheat software is detrimental to an online game community’ for our management team to review."

While it's always possible the email could be fake, Juicehead says that he spoke to other banned players who backed up the wording and sentiment of the email asking for essays in exchange for being unbanned. It's certainly a unique take on discouraging online cheating.

Recently, Bethesda announced that they'll be gifting Fallout classic to owners of Fallout 76 as recompense for the game's rocky launch. You can also find our review for the game right here.

A long time ago, I used to edit essays as a side gig. I am not sure I would ever willingly ask people to give me essays to read on a thing they don't want to do.
