Fallout 76 News: Players Who Own Fallout 76 Will Get Old Fallout Games For Free
According to the latest post from Inside the Vault, players who own a PC copy of Fallout 76 will be eligible to get games from the Fallout Classic Collection for free from the Bethesda Launcher. The games from the Fallout Classic Collection include: Fallout, Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel and Fallout 2. Xbox One and PS4 have not been included for this giveaway.
The games are available to download from the Bethesda launcher now, but the other updates will be rolled out on January 14. Bethesda has not yet released any patch notes for the update but they have promised balance changes and fixes. Bethesda says they are "not ready to share the details".
Some of these include tweaking Challenges and quests, various fixes to a number of Perks and weapons, and fixing various exploits.
Fallout and Fallout 2 are classics which were released by the end of the 1990s. Unlike the past few Fallout games, the first two Fallout games were turn-based role-playing video games. Today, the Fallout games are known for being open world role-playing video games.
Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is a little more different though. The game was released as a spin-off and has no direct continuation with the Fallout 1 and 2 stories. The game emphasizes tactical combat and strategy.
It is a little more complicated and the world is a lot smaller compared to other Fallout games. Interestingly, this was the very first Fallout game ever to feature multiplayer. Maybe you will find some players stocking up their bunkers this weekend on Fallout Tactics!
Unfortunately, the Classic Collection does not include Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas, which are widely regarded as the best versions of the Fallout series. Maybe we can get a taste of a remastered Fallout 3 from the unofficial remake in the works.
