If you’re having fun in Fallout 76, awesome – our own Fallout fanboy certainly found some positives in the game – but other folks are apparently taking their complaints to the next level. According to a post on Reddit, a law firm is researching the efficacy of a class action suit against Bethesda for “deceptive trade practices.”
“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,” the firm writes. “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 hasn’t actually filed anything yet; it says it is hunting for players who have attempted to get a refund for the game, presumably to join the suit.
