    So things seem to have settled down for Fallout 76 in the past couple of months. The negativity of the game's botched launch is now firmly in the past and gamer outrage has mostly subsided. Things are finally getting better.

    But being Bethesda, they decided that the current situation is unacceptable and has chosen to stir the pot once again with a brand new controversy: https://www.pcgamer.com/fallout-76-fans-are-unhappy-that-bethesda-is-adding-pay-to-win-items/

    Bethesda is introducing repair kits into the game, which restore one item to 100% and can only be bought with Atoms. This is a non-cosmetic item, which can provide a competitive edge to those players who spend money - in other words, it's pay-to-win. Many gamers are rightly pointing out that Pete Hines promised no pay-to-win mechanics in Fallout 76, and this is a direct violation of that promise.

    "Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies"... oh sorry, got a song stuck in my head. :p

    To be frank, I thought they were teasing pay-to-win with the limited-time Unstoppables costume perk before, and are now taking the next step. Players are fearing that this will be a slippery slope to further pay-to-win features and are urging Bethesda to reconsider.

    Ever since the Skyrim milking Bethesda has smelled money like a dog that tasted blood.

    Well, it is coming to Steam so I guess they are getting it ready to make as much money as possible for that release by adding even more additional monetization....

    I honestly wont be surprised if they push even further with adding even more little tiny things like the repair kit in Bethesda's never ending crusade to nickel and dime the player.

    Oh yeah, I've forgotten that it's coming to Steam. Well, not that I'll be touching it, but I think you're right. With the already failed sales, chances are that Bethesda will further monetise the game in order to squeeze some extra dosh from the few fanatics / Steam newbies that (will)play this game.

    You mean because everyone basically stopped playing the game and moved onto other things?

    It may upset or shock some, but plenty of people are still playing FO76.
    And that number will only go up once it releases on Steam (which I see timing out around their E3 showcase).

    Even with the "pay to win" stuff, it will sell. People will play.

    same people that stuck with eso when it was a broken buggy mess at release.

    Sure SOME people will play crap games, and hey there is an outside chance that bethesda could turn 76 around, though that seems less likely every decision they make.....

    I mean they could have kept to their word and not done some of the store stuff they did on a game that was already on respirators.

    But by the time it is out on steam either they will have made something of a game worth playing, or the game is clearly doa, And they need to get a move on now if that is going to be a thing and well yea.......

    if no man lie can turn that disaster around, and maybe we happy few seems to be getting better last i looked, then bethesda could do it if they had a mind to.

    But this store stuff is shooting themselves in the foot on the heels of triple bypass. and gamers are not going to forget them lying to customers on the shop front nm what else the game is doing by then. It better be gdamn amazing game to sell well after the series of disasters around this title its launch and its continued operation.

    ESO was a complete mess when it first released as well, but they turned it around.
    Nothings impossible, and it's very possible that FO76 could become a game that people wanted it to be.

    Specially with the upcoming content later this year, that adds a new main quest line and such.

    Still have to go into the .ini to get big fps boost. That engine vsync is just terrible, it almost cuts your fps in halve.

    its obvious those items are making the game more casual, and adding idiotic ideas ( Battle Royal ) in a Fallout game.. is another step in admitting the product they released failed. so they squeeze the Lemon right now the best they can.. for some attention.
    looking at Andromeda and Anthem and compare it to BioWare's previous titles.. makes you wonder about Starfield and the next ES game... just saying...

    This game seems to a real cluster f#ck/
    When all the DLC's are released and it hits Steam next year I might consider it.
    Not until.
