You’d think that Fallout 76 had enough controversy, what with it being mired with bugs, performance and server issues, poor critical and user ratings and an overall disappointment from fans.
However, Bethesda seems to have wandered into another spot of bother with the kit found in the collector’s edition of the game.
The ‘Power Armor’ edition of the game (which includes a helmet, amongst other items,) runs players a cool £174.99, but it isn’t the main event that purchases are concerned about, it’s the bag it comes in.
Advertised as a ‘Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag’, the one that was actually given out as part of the package was uh… nylon. Naturally, people aren’t happy about this. Owners took to Twitter to voice their concerns about the quality of the product en masse, which demanded a response from the developer.
“We are sorry. Please contact Bethesda Support to provide proof of your CE purchase. They will assist in granting your account 500 Atoms.”
Atoms are in-game currency in Fallout 76, but it’s a fairly paltry amount for a broken promise.
All in all, it’s another nail in the coffin for Bethesda’s multiplayer experiment. Yet, there is the possibility that they can turn this one around. Could we see another No Man’s Sky style renaissance with Fallout 76? Let us know what you think.
