Bethesda Issues Apology Over Fallout 76 Power Armour Edition Change

Bethesda Issues Apology Over Fallout 76 Power Armour Edition Change”

Bethesda's response to the situation hasn't necessarily helped to calm things either.

Instead, Bethesda ended up including a cheap, flimsy nylon sack instead - one which looked nothing like the West Tek bag that appeared in the original ad for the Fallout 76 collector's edition. Or at least, it was meant to: the duffel bag that shipped wasn't canvas after all, but instead nylon. "The bag shown in the media was a prototype and was too expensive to make", said the Bethesda Gear Store Support.

The fan reaction to Fallout 76 keeps getting worse and worse. In order to ease some of the heat from dissapointed fans, Bethesda has made a decision to offer some in-game currency.

Most of the responses on Reddit to the apology indicate that folk are now even more annoyed, as much for the fact of Bethesda not informing them of the change as the miserly in-game compensation now offered. Since then, the publisher has spoken on the issue again, tweeting that it understands that there is "disappointment" with the bag, and thatit would be offering players 500 atoms as some measure of compensation.

Yesterday we chronicled the growing controversy surrounding Fallout 76's Power Armor Edition. What was originally promoted as a canvas bag included in the Power Armor Edition turned out to be a nylon bag when a buyer received their Fallout 76 memorabilia. The insane part was how Bethesda Support handled the entire situation. Well, this wasn't the bag that made the final cut. These are worth 500 Atoms, which is equivalent to $5 United States dollars in the real world. We hope this doesn't prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector's editions. Some point since the initial reveal, Bethesda changed the description but failed to communicate that change to many who had pre-ordered the Power Armor Edition already.

One player who complained to Bethesda about this received 500 "compensatory" atoms but this doesn't seem to have been a blanket offer for everyone who forked out full price prior to the sales. Instead of doing nothing other than acknowledging the issue, Bethesda is instead offering collector's edition owners a total of 500 Atoms in Fallout 76 when you submit a proof of purchase.
