Bethesda has come under fire quite a lot since the release of Fallout 76, starting with fans review-bombing the game to oblivion on Metacritic. Official review scores don’t look much better either and even though Bethesda is trying to improve the game, you can’t blame gamers who have had enough and want a refund. Now, Fallout 76 refunds are reportedly available on the Bethesda.net store for PC gamers.
PC gamers are probably aware of Steam’s great refund policy, but it wasn’t really a think on the Bethesda.net launcher. However, players are reporting on a ResetEra post that they can, in fact, get Fallout 76 refunds via Bethesda’s digital store. The post was created by ResetEra member Fernando, who explained the following:
I was able to get a refund for my copy of Fallout 76, this is after 24 hours total playtime. All I said was I wasn’t happy with the bugs and poor performance and they approved it pretty quickly. Just letting people know.
Since then, others have also reported their successful Fallout 76 refunds. Unlike Steam which has a 2-hour playtime limit, it seems like Fallout 76 refunds on the Bethesda.net launcher does not. Keep in mind that just because some gamers got refunds, doesn’t mean this is an official thing.
However, if you did buy Fallout 76 over the Bethesda.net launcher, and you despise the game, then you can always give it a shot and see if Bethesda grants you a refund. I, for one, am enjoying my time with Fallout 76 but I am only about 8 hours in right now and playing on a PS4 Pro.
