Games company Bethesda could be hit with a pretty sizable lawsuit after the recent release of their new MMO game Fallout 76. The 8thgame in the much loved Fallout Series 76 was the first time that the series was to be taken to the online market.
Bethesda promised the complete Fallout experience but with friends and this lead to massive pre order sales for Bethesda leading up to its release earlier this month.
The problem began on launch day when players booted up their new RPG expecting the explore a vast open world and meet all those strange characters that fallout is famed for.
This was not what players got. The game was a mess at launch with everything from small bugs and glitches here to in some cases game breaking glitches which completely ruined the experience for a lot of players.
Private Law Firm Miglaccio and Rathod are investigating Bethesda game studios over the launch of the game. Their post reads:
“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 post continues, with contact information and a call for anybody that has attempted to receive a refund for their Fallout 76 purchase. An update to the Reddit post from the firm said, “we are thrilled with the response to the investigation but our site appears to have crashed, potentially related to the traffic generated.”
