Fallout 76 given away with $5 item

It’s common knowledge by now that Fallout 76 was a huge flop. However, even I was surprised to see just how little the game seems to be valued by Polish retailer X-Kom. Their website has a bundle which includes a set of four pairs of PS4 controller thumbsticks and a copy of Fallout 76 for the PS4.

Announced Monday, Metro: Exodus, the post-apocalyptic shooter from 4AGames and Deep Silver will be exclusive to the Epic Games store. Epic’s exclusives until this point, were brought into the light as exclusives for their store from the outset. However, in this case, they straight up bought the exclusivity rights two weeks before release.
