An angry fan of Bethesda’s Fallout franchise has picked by the Fallout First domain, allowing them to broadcast their explicit thoughts on the new MMO membership. 

Announced yesterday, Fallout First (or Fallout 1st) is a $100-per-year membership subscription that allows players to use long-requested features. With the state of the game being far from ideal even this long after launch, fans were unhappy.

The expensive service gives players access to private worlds, a monthly allowance of microtransaction currency, unlimited storage, exclusive emotes and more.

While some Fallout fans may have taken to comment sections to scream their hate – we just laughed for hours – one fan has gone all out: they’ve purchased the Fallout First domain.

The new is a very explicit website, so do be careful before entering. Rebranding the subscription into Fallout F*** You 1st, the single-page website is an edited copy of Bethesda’s announcement.

“Ever since Fallout 76 launched, we have consistently done nothing to improve and evolve the experience based on your sh**ty feedback,” the website reads. “That’s why we’re excited to launch Fallout F*** YOU 1st, a premium a**-pounding membership that offers something dumba** players have been asking for since before launch… And the best part? Fallout F*** YOU 1st is available to screw you right now!”

The domain is covered in expletive language, none of which will be shared here. But one thing is certain: Fallout 1st is ticking off a lot of players. Going over to the game’s subreddit shows a slurry of negative posts.

“A subscription service for a game like this is BOLD,” one post reads. “We can’t add a little more stash space because it would affect server stability, guys. But we can absolutely sell you unlimited stash space for crafting materials!” says another.

After a bug-ridden launch, broken pre-order promises, microtransactions, delayed content, and now this, Bethesda have crossed a line.
