On November 14th, Bethesda’s Fallout 76 went on sale, and if the owners of digital copies managed to play it even ahead of schedule , then those who chose the discs were much less fortunate.
In Russia, the PC version of Fallout 76 cannot be bought on the disc in principle, but for players from Australia and other countries, it was a surprise that instead of a standard DVD, a cardboard disc with a code is in the box.
Why do PC games continue to make boxes? The “disc” of Fallout 76 is only a carton with a code for downloading. Well your mother
Warning for players from the regions, for people with temporary access to the Internet, and for everyone who lives in Australia. The PC version of Fallout 76 does not come with a disc. There is only a code. You have to download everything at all. I wish we didn’t have to do that
PC games on discs are already a thing of the past … and here Bethesda appears with its shitty Fallout 76 cardboard disc.

It is possible that the Xbox displays only the data from the disk, which she needed during the installation. However, this does not change the essence: since this is an online game and its updating is mandatory, there is indeed a little more than three hundred megabytes of useful information on the media. The rest of the console simply pumps
