That is right if you are the proud owner of Fallout 76 then you are in for a great Christmas present from Bethesda. They are giving away three old Fallout games which many of the player-base for the latest game probably haven’t played.
Here are the three games that the players will be getting:
- Fallout 1
- Fallout 2
- Fallout Tactics
How to get Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics for free
Getting these games for free is incredibly simple and fairly cheap (cheap considering you are basically getting four games for the price of one). All you have to do is purchase yourself a copy of Fallout 76 and log yourself in before the end of 2018.
ANYONE who logged into the full release of #Fallout76 in 2018 will receive an entitlement for Fallout Classic Collection on PC. This applies to Xbox One and PS4 players, too.
The entitlement is expected to go live in early January. pic.twitter.com/U8pJwrk0PV

This obviously only applies to PC versions of the game. However these old games should be able to be played on any fair recent PC or laptop that you may have – make sure to check the specification requirements first though before loading these up!
Some console players are not happy with this giveaway:

Will this offer entice you to pick up a copy of Fallout 76 before the year is out or are you staying away from this fallout game?
Bethesda’s launch of Fallout 76 has been riddled with problems from the get-go, but things might be about to get even worse for the company.
The post entitled “‘Lunchbox’s’ appearing in Fallout 76 .esm files, no current need to panic but might be worth keeping an eye on,” has gotten a lot of attention on the site, and none of it good.
It states: “We knew Lunchboxs were in the game through the datamining but now they absoloutely have the ATX tag attached (ATX being Bethesda Atom Shop profile) meaning these are highly likely to be sold for atoms…
“We’re also seeing a list of additional effects including Damage, Carry bonus (Uh ohhhh) and XP Boosts (F*cking uh ohhhhhhhhh).”
The user even goes on to compare the “lunchboxes” to Call Of Duty‘s infamous loot box fiasco, writing: “[The leak] is hitting my Call of Duty PTSD where Lootboxes were visible to everyone on the server in an attempt to show off all the good shit people were getting to try and persuade spectators to buy lootboxes. Are we taking pages out of Activisions book Bethesda?”
People aren’t harping on valve for RNG lootbox and microtransactions, probably because they also made steam so it’s fine, they get a pass… But fallout 76 with cosmetic microtransactions oh no they’re the devils incarnate.

The leaks have caused some uncertainty within the community, especially since Bethesda’s Pete Hines has previously told the Fallout community: “Folks that want to spend money on whatever the hell it is because they don’t have enough Atoms, they can, but it’s not, ‘I’m now better playing against other players because I spent money.’ It’s not pay-to-win. And it’s not loot crates.”
I don’t know about you, but these “lunchboxes” sound a little fishy…
