Bethesda is having an unexpected nightmare since the launch of Fallout 76 and it continues as even the gamers on Twitch don’t want to watch it. Yes, Fallout 76’s transition into an online-only game has turned out to be a disaster instead of the popularity they expected it to gain.
Fallout 76 review scores are already out and pretty much nobody likes it. But according to the latest news, players are that much disappointed that they are not interested in watching Fallout 76 on Twitch.
According to GitHyp, Fallout 76 has received less than half the views of Fallout 4 at launch. Fallout 76 had peak viewers of 106k at launch as compared to the insanely popular Fallout 4 which had more than 234k concurrent viewers on Twitch at launch.
Actually, these numbers are worse than its Beta version which tells us how Bethesda has failed with their new experimenting. Fallout 76 currently stands at No. 31 in the list of most watch games of the year.
This is horrible as it seems as it’s just been a week since the release and eventually these numbers are going to decrease further. Even Radical Heights which is now canceled had 196k viewers and currently stands at #27.
As for review scores, Fallout 76 is struggling to have any good scores. In other Fallout 76 news, the game has even lost to the newly released remaster of Spyro games called Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a remaster of games originally released on PlayStation 1 years back which is a big disappointment for Bethesda as they have been making games throughout all PlayStation systems.
Other Fallout 76 review scores show the game at 46% on Metacritic. Fallout 76 user review score is just 2.7 and that’s the lowest in any Fallout game ever. The highest review score given to Fallout 76 is 7/10.
Now furthermore, this comes after Bethesda tried to gain the attention of the viewers on Twitch by organizing a big streaming event of the game. Fallout 76 was recently played live on Twitch by Ninja, Rick and Morty, and Rapper Logic. This mega event managed to bring 76,000 viewers but that’s not the case anymore.
In other news, Fallout 76 price has now also dropped due to the bugs, errors and failed gameplay mechanics. Fallout 76 is now available for £39.95 on Xbox One and PS4 by The Game Collection.
Now, this is also a big shame for the players who pre-ordered the game at the full price but as a result received this unfinished kind of game. Though we believe that this new price point is still not going to be enough for everyone to grab it. The game is a complete mess.
Modders are already trying to improve the overall game experience in the game. Mods for better inventory and better performance are already out as sometimes the game seems to be running on a potato.
Though Bethesda seems to be trying to solve issues with the game as Pete Hines once said that they are going to support Fallout 76 forever. The new patch has arrived and it’s as big as the day one patch. It weighs around 47 GB but also uncaps the framerates on PC which is finally something good.
Now let’s just wait to see how Bethesda can prevent Fallout 76 from turning into one of worst online games ever.
