Fallout 76 is back in the news again for all the wrong reasons, with refunds that were previously denied now allowed due to a ruling by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
Shipping with numerous bugs and issues, many fans sought refunds for Fallout 76, but found themselves denied, causing consumers to appeal to the Commission with the argument that they were mis-sold the game, with bugs and other features rendering it a broken or faulty product.
One such company that denied these refunds was Electronic Boutique Australia Pty LTD (also known as EB Games) the Australian branch of Gamestop.
Now, in a ruling today, the Commission has said that consumers should “contact EB Games before 1 August 2020” in order to gain a refund from the company by emailing them at customer.supportAUS@ebgames.com.
Despite having been recently updated with the Wastelanders updated (which added the much-requested NPCs that were missing from the title previously) many still think of the game as a colossal failure for Bethesda, the developer behind the Fallout series and The Elder Scrolls title, such as Oblivion and Skyrim.
So, it looks like Fallout 76 is in the news again, for all the wrong reasons…
