Some fans may have been disappointed in “Fallout 76,” but publisher Bethesda is giving out some holiday cheer to anyone who played it in 2018. Bethesda announced on Twitter over the weekend that anyone who played “the full release” of “Fallout 76” on any platform is entitled to three free, older “Fallout” games on PC.

The “Fallout Classic Collection,” which should be available in January, consists of “Fallout,” “Fallout 2” and the “Fallout Tactics” spin-off game from 2001. According to Bethesda’s tweet, anyone who played the full retail version of “Fallout 76” can get the collection, meaning those who only played the beta are not included.

Note that the collection is only available on PC; none of those games ever got console releases. Since they all came out between 1997 and 2001, they should be able to run on any modern PC.

“Fallout 76” has been a source of controversy for Bethesda since its November release. Poor reviews have been compounded by player complaints about numerous technical problems.
