So when a new rumor threatened to once again land Bethesda in hot water with fans, the developer swiftly responded. Fallout 76, the latest installation in the Fallout franchise had a rough launch. Players were quick to point out that the game was heavily flawed, full of glitches and, in some areas, completely unplayable. The game went on to become Bethesdas worst reviewed one in over a decade. Some fans who were disappointed with the new release attempted to return the game only to learn of the companys no refunds policy. Problems continued for Bethesda when fans who preordered the $200 Power Armor Edition found that the canvas bag that had been advertised had been replaced by one made of cheap nylon. While Bethesda claimed they ran out of materials and couldnt deliver, they were able to send the bags out to influencers instead. Considering the developers troubled past few months, fans were quick to believe in the rumor that Fallout 76 would soon be free-to-play.
