Looks like Fallout 76 just cant stay away from drama and controversy as pay-to-win items make their way to the game.
We don’t want to say that our hatred towards this game as soon as it was announced was justified, but no one should have expected a title that was built by love and passion. No, this was a product specifically made so that it could drain its players of as much money as humanly possible, which shows now more than ever. Repair Kits are on their way, which let you repair items on the fly straight from your inventory. Where can you get these? From completing certain in-game content and from the Atomic Shop.
You’ve guessed it, even after Bethesda officially stated that they wouldn’t add any pay-to-win items, they went and did just that. Strange, only a little while ago after praising the efforts of the devs for releasing free content updates, something like this happenes. It makes us sad, and it makes is incredibly furious.
The problem with Bethesda and Fallout 76 is that it was obvious that the title was made to make the Fallout franchise busy with moneymaking while we wait for another triple-A single player release like Fallout 4 was. That is fine, but they way they’re trying to go is wrong. Releasing an item which can fix your equipment on the fly is acceptable, but making it available in the Atomic Shop is just a slap in the face for the playerbase which already paid full price for this game. The worst part is that Bethesda knows what kind of reaction this is going to cause, and they went with it anyway. Why? Because they just don’t care anymore. They don’t care about the players, about their games, they just want more and more money, and will stop at nothing to increase their profits.
Fallout 76 players are stating their opinions on this Reddit thread, and it is absolutely clear that this sort of behavior should not be tolerated at all.
