Fallout 76 refunds
Last year the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission ruled that Australians who purchased a copy of Fallout 76 should be able to get refunds. Australia has laws that protect customers from poorly made products, like the glitchy and empty state that the online Fallout game was in at launch.
“Consumers had complained to the ACCC that EB Games representatives had advised them they were not entitled to a refund after they experienced a range of faults with the Fallout 76 game, including problems with servers and bugs in the game,” reads a statement from the ACCC.
Gamers who purchased the West Virginian based post-apocalyptic game between November 14, 2018, and October 31, 2019, were initially denied their refunds. Now, if you contact EB games before August 1, 2020, by emailing at [email protected], you can request your refund for the game.
Fallout 76 refunds are not questionable as the game was poorly received by fans and critics. Currently, it holds an average score of 51 on Metacritic across its PC, Xbox One, and PS4 reviews. Bethesda’s attempt at an online version of its flagship IP was hit due to bugs, a lack of content, and core design choices like not having NPCs, which much of which have been addressed in various updates.
