Fallout Classic Collection offer for Fallout 76 players in January
Bethesda recently announced this latest bonus via Twitter; "Anyone who signed in to the full release of Fallout 76 in 2018 will receive a right for the Fallout Classic Collection on PC. This also applies to Xbox One and PS4 players. This right is expected to go live in early January."
Some people who own Fallout 76 may actually already have received the Fallout Classic Collection for free. Everyone who pre-ordered the game on PC also got a free copy of the Fallout Classic Collection; This offer was added a few weeks before the game's release, but was retroactively applied to all Bethesda's PC pre-orders.
The Fallout Classic Collection contains three games in total. It includes the original Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel. All three games were developed by Interplay Entertainment, prior to the acquisition of Bethesda's franchise. These games are only available on the PC, as they were all released before the rise of today's console giants. As a result, you won't be able to play them on your consoles. However, this new offer from Bethesda applies to all Fallout 76 players, including console players, not just PC players. Don't worry if you don't have a gaming PC though; The last of the three games included in the Fallout Classic Collection was published seventeen years ago. As such, their system requirements are very low compared to modern standards.
It is currently unknown when these games become available to Fallout 76 players. With a "early January" release window, fans should not wait long.
