Fallout 76 is now live across all major platforms and region, and if you're being egged on by your gaming group to join the multiplayer fray, you can scoop up a 12% discount as a perk for being late to the party. At digital retailer Green Man Gaming, Bethesda's latest title is discounted modestly to $52 and change. The same deal applies for the more expensive Tricentennial Edition which contains tons of in-game skins and weapons.
If you're on the sideline, be warn though as gamer reviews are decisively on the negative side of things, whereas critics are more balance on their reviews. Suffice to say, you shouldn't expect the usual single player Falluot experience and expect this to be more of a co-op, sandbox Fallout title. The game has also been plagued with some server and connectivity problem upon launch. Finally, as if to toss more wrench into this "deal" - you should be aware that Fallout 76 is exclusively on Bethesda's launcher for the PC. Much like what they did with The Elder Scrolls Online, the game is currently not available on Steam.
While the discount beats paying full price, we think you should only partake if you truly want to join in on the title with friends. Otherwise, waiting for a bigger discount is probably prudent.
