Ah good old America, if in doubt – sue! Law firm Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is “investigating” Bethesda and Fallout 76 , saying that although they expect some bugs it is an “unplayable experience”.
It appears that for a short period of time Bethesda were offering refunds to PC gamers, but this practise stopped within days and some Reddit users have posted that they were offered a refund only to have the offer rescinded later on.
Here’s the text from the Migliaccio & Rathod LLPwebsite:
Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Bethesda Game Studios for releasing a heavily-glitched game, Fallout 76, and refusing to issue refunds for PC purchasers of the game who found it to be unplayable because of its technical problems. While minor bugs and glitches are expected with the release of most new games, Fallout 76 launched with a 56GB patch that has proven to be but a starting point for the game’s problems. Gamers who have tried to receive a refund because of the game’s myriad glitches have been unable to do so since they downloaded the game, leaving them to deal with an unplayable experience until patches bring it back to a playable state.
The firm ask all those who have tried to get a refund to contact them via their website. However, this will only to apply to US residents, if you’re in the UK your on you own at present.
Bethesda continue to remain rather quiet, the official Twitter accounts posted a few Thanksgiving messages and Pete Hines, SVP of Global Comms, is still MIA having not tweeted for ten days.
