This "game", is an abomination that no reasonable person can defend. They made a game where your armor degrades, then want to sell you armor repair kits, Or the color blue,for 15 bucks. It was created solely to steal money from stupid kids. Period.

Hell the first battle royale of any significance I remember, the H1Z1 battle royale mode, was itself an attempt to rebrand a failing game. The genre basically started as a last ditch effort.

Fallout 76 was an abortion of a game that stripped out everything that made a Bethesda game compelling - it had no NPCs, no compelling quests, no ability to mod the game and was supported by a company with no experience maintaining an online service.
The hate towards FO76 was never really warranted, even at launch. Its biggest flaw was that it was a multiplayer spin-off instead of FO5. That's why most of its critics never even played it. However, it actually plays very much like FO4. You still spend the majority of your time exploring, killing, scavenging and crafting. There are still NPCs, they're just robots. There are still tons of interesting POIs and lore to discover too. As with any BGS game, there are bugs and the UI is still awful but at least mods help with the latter.

Didn't they mention this coming to Steam some time? I figured I'd try it when it does, if it's cheap.

I've been playing the trial the last three days and was disconnected yesterday and the day before. I don't think I've ever lost a connection to ESO so I'm not sure why the discrepancy.
