Released in 2018, Fallout 76 was a controversial live-service take on the franchise that launched in a less-than-stellar state. Since then, though, and to Bethesda’s credit, the game has continued to be supported has maintained a small but dedicated playerbase.

But the show has brought in heaps of new players. So many, in fact, that the official Fallout account on X has announced that over one million people logged into Fallout 76 in 24 hours.
