Bethesda Compensates Disgruntled Fallout 76 Collector's Edition Owners

Bethesda’s $200 ‘Fallout 76’ collector’s edition isn’t what fans were promised

Anyway, if you're one of the unlucky punters to have bought one of these, worry not, because Bethesda are offering you 500 Atoms as a gesture of good will!

Not only that, the in-game version of the West Tek canvas bag as part of the Postman costume cost 700 Atoms.

Reddit has rallied around Fethennour's complaint, and after raising it again on social media, finally got some reimbursement from Bethesda. In amongst the game's $200 Power Armor Edition was supposed to be a snazzy-looking canvas duffel bag, but the terrible nylon version it shipped with has angered buyers, though not as much as the company's response.

The hits just keep coming.

Judging from the reaction of the fans, this was probably not the best course of action by Bethesda. They offered each buyer 500 Atoms within Fallout 76, which is $5 Dollars worth of in-game currency. Later, Bethesda pledged that those unhappy with their bag purchase are eligible to claim 500 Atoms, in-game.

Players who paid $US200 for "Fallout 76 Power Armour Edition" also said a canvas bag advertised in the package had been substituted with a cheaper nylon bag without notice.

Unfortunately, due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon carrying case in the Fallout 76: Power Armour Edition. "The bag was too expensive to make". Replies range from memes to players accusing Bethesda of going "full Electronic Arts", which is arguably the worst possible insult a gamer can hurl at a game studio.

In the wake of the Fallout 76 launch, Bethesda has been rather quiet, until now. We aren't planning to do anything about it'. We hope this doesn't prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector's editions.

This is a really shitty thing for Bethesda to do, as they haven't told gamers who shelled out $200 for the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition bundle that they won't be getting what was advertised and promised.

To be clear, that's 500 Atoms - or, as I like to call it $5 (£3.99) in pretend money. Ironically, this amount of atoms isn't enough to buy the in-game canvas bag.
