8 Comments

Amazon has cut through the competition with a deal that beats the rest by a few precious bucks. You can now buy Fallout 76 for $35 on PS4, Xbox One, or PC. You'd better hurry if you want to grab this deal, however, because it's probably not going to last too long. Amazon is also offering the Tricentennial Edition of Fallout 76 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $50, which is $10 cheaper than normal. Note that these are physical editions of the game, although you can turn to the Xbox and PlayStation Stores if you would prefer a digital version for a few bucks more.

Rejoice! Black Friday 2018 is finally here, which means there's savings to be made. To help you get the best prices on games and hardware, we've rounded up some major deals for people to take advantage of. Coming off the heels of the recent launch of Fallout 76, the series' first attempt at an online game, several retailers have already put the PC, PS4, and Xbox One releases up for discount just in time for Black Friday.

As of right now, Best Buy, GameStop, and Walmart has the game up for sale during Black Friday. While most deals aren't currently active, you'll be able to plan ahead by keeping track of which retailers have the kind of deals you want. GameStop has the standard game for $40, with the Tricentennial release dropping to $60 (from $80). The Xbox Store has matched that discount on the base game; it's on sale right now.

Best Buy has all three versions of Fallout 76 up for Black Friday with some special bundles. Though both the PS4 and Xbox One releases are still normal retail price at $60, they'll come packed with a special Vault Boy keychain. Meanwhile, the PC release is bundled with a Blackout Yeti mic for $100. Walmart is also have the game up for sale, discounting their retailer-exclusive steelbook edition for $60. Green Man Gaming, meanwhile, has Fallout 76 on PC for $36 when you sign in and redeem a voucher. For those in the UK, the game is available for £35.

Fallout 76 is a bit different compared to Bethesda's previous efforts with Fallout 3 and 4. As an online survival game, you'll focus more on surviving the elements while also staying a few steps ahead of other enemies and rival players while exploring the expansive map of Appalachia. Instead of a traditional Fallout narrative, with your choices and decisions leaving drastic consequences on the state of the world and all the characters in it, 76 places more of an emphasis on the moment-to-moment plot with your character simply trying to survive in the irradiated wilderness of West Virginia.

Though our final review isn't up yet, editor Edmond Tran offered up some early impressions with the game so far: "Fallout 76 attempts to pull off some significantly new ideas for the series, but with few exceptions, they notably diminish many aspects of the game. Multiplayer is fun, but it's not an ideal way to enjoy questing, and the shooting mechanics aren't strong enough to make combat-heavy activities enjoyable for long periods. Things feel better as a solo experience, but the lack of in-universe characters makes becoming emotionally invested in the world and your goals difficult."

Black Friday 2018 has kicked into high-gear, with an overwhelming number of deals active, so be sure to keep tabs on the ones that interest you the most. In addition to Fallout 76, Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition, God of War, and Black Ops 4 are also on discount for this week.
