A law firm has launched a survey of Bethesda Game Studios over Fallout 76, and specifically its repayment policy. The Washington DC area law firm Migliaccio & Rathod said in a blog post that it was launched an investigation by the developer to “refuse to issue PC buyer repayments of the game found that it was unplayable due to its technical issues.” The law firm’s blog posts call Fallout 76 a “heavily glossy game”.
“While smaller bugs and glitches are expected with the release of most new games, Fallout 76 launched a 56GB patch that proved to be a starting point for the game’s problem,” said the company. “Players who have tried to get a refund because of the game Myriad glitches have not been able to do it because they downloaded the game so that they could handle an unplayable experience until patches return it to a playable state. “
If you tried to get a refund for Fallout 76, the law firm wants you to reach out
Many people at Reddit (via GI.biz) have reported that Bethesda acted quickly to respond to and complete their Fallout 76 refund requests. Not everyone has been so happy.
It is important to note that Migliaccio & Rathod has not taken any legal action against Bethesda, and because of the racial public call for cases from society sounds like very early days for whatever it is. A search through the US court systems shows no results for any legal action against Bethesda over Fallout 76.
Nicholas Migliaccio, a collaborator at the company, told the motherboard that they expect to draw up a complaint against Bethesda. “We have been flooded and we are still investigating the requirements, but we intend to put together a trial applicant.”
The law firm said it had already received more than 200 phone calls and e-mails about Fallout 76. Another partner at the company, Jason Rathod, added: “Most people are -” I applied for a refund and they do not issue one to me . “The game is unplayable. We are flooded with such types of communication from people. I think people just try to get the money back.”
In the same interview, Rathod pointed to Aliens: Colonial Marines as an example of a successful complaint. As you may remember, the players launched a class action suit against Sega and Developer Gearbox publishers, and finally, Sega decided $ 1
.25 million, according to Polygon.
Another feature of Fallout 76 is that the digital PC edition was released exclusively via Bethesda.net, not Steam, a platform that has a generous refund policy. Bethesda’s own return policy states the following:

GameSpot s Fallout 76 review made the game a 4/10. Notification Edmond Tran specifically expressed the game’s many technical issues in his review. In less than great news for Fallout 76, the latest discovery was that the promised $ 200 Collector’s Canvas Bag was replaced with a nylon bag.
According to Bethesda, “million” people have played Fallout 76, so it seems to be successful by some actions. The developer plans to resolve new features, fixes and changes for the game on a regular basis, starting with the first major patch next week.
