The launch of the Fallout 76 subscription premium Fallout 1st, couldn't get any worse. As the most engaged players struggle with the audacity of a purchase in a game that costs more than many basic subscriptions to top TVs, there is now a deluge of consumer complaints that the most coveted content it provides has been breached.
First, the obvious reason to part with money in the first place – the long sought after private servers – does not seem to deliver on what it promises. Players say that the privacy provided has some loopholes, such as the inability to restrict access outside the friends list. This means that players with very large lists of friends in the game ̵
Second, the claim that private servers deliver a "newly created" world is also doubtful. Some players have described anecdotally finding dead NPCs and looted areas, meaning that these are recycled cases that are now being sold as brand new worlds.
However, the most sinister glitch involves the Scrap Box – an unlimited storage capacity where players can throw away their broken junk. Several players said they had lost everything.
It seems that one reported error involves the use of Scrap Box in another player's world and then finding the deposit has disappeared both there and in the player's personal world. In any case, it is best to avoid scrap boxes until this problem is recognized and resolved. The player in this case says they have sent a support ticket for the issue and have heard from Bethesda, though they have no hope that they will be able to recover their resources.
This user-friendly theme started yesterday as a glitch, people have found after the latest game title update. He also notes that some scrap boxes do not accept bulk waste (where raw scrap combined with plastic creates a less cumbersome bulk version of the waste).
A separate, but no less, indication of the temperature of the community at the moment, the angry fan controls the URL of "falloutfirst.com" and launches a parody website that treats the Fallout 1st idea and introduces malicious intent by Bethesda. The URL has been up and down all day, probably because of traffic spikes. Fallout 1st is described as a "one-month waste of your membership money" and "an annual waste pile," and from there it becomes a smaller species .
Polygon reached Bethesda representatives for all of this and asked for comment on the problems described by the community. We will update this post when we hear back.
Fallout 1st was introduced in Fallout 76 yesterday. This is, well, $ 12.99 a month or $ 99.99 a year, and the subscription is not what most in the community had in mind when Bethesda announced last week that private servers would be added to the game.
In addition to private servers and Scrap Box, players also receive some cosmetics, a quick survival tent, and 1650 Atoms, a premium currency that buys items from the Atomic Shop game.
