Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition Bag False Advertisement Enrages Fans

Bethesda Under Fire Again for Contents of the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition

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

However, Bethesda's response to the public outcry is now the center of attention. But when customers opened up their $200 version of the game, they found that the canvas duffel bag was actually a far less extravagant nylon bag. If you prove you bought the Power Armor Edition, there's some compensation in it. It's worth pointing out that even though Bethesda's store page has been updated to reflect that the Power Armor Edition ships with a nylon bag, the images that accompany that listing (one of which you can see above) still clearly show a canvas bag at the time of this writing.

It's the latest piece of bad news that both fans of the Fallout series and Bethesda itself has had to deal with since the release of Fallout 76. In order to ease some of the heat from dissapointed fans, Bethesda has made a decision to offer some in-game currency. They're even less ecstatic with Bethesda's response, which has been to offer $5 of in-game currency to make up for it.

Atoms are in-game currency in Fallout 76, but it's a fairly paltry amount for a broken promise.

Unfortunately, due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon carrying case in the Fallout 76: Power Armour Edition.

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.

Bethesda Game Studios is the subject of an investigation by Washington DC-based law firm Migliaccio & Rathod. "The bag was too expensive to make". We hope this doesn't prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector's editions.

In the wake of the Fallout 76 launch, Bethesda has been rather quiet, until now. "We aren't planning on doing anything about it", which is just about the most offensive thing you can say to a customer. Community members are warning burned purchasers to not take the 500 Atom offer, or risk losing possible class action lawsuit or consumer complaints. Just like you can't own a canvas bag in reality, you can't own it in a fictional wasteland.

"We understand and respect that there is disappointment with the bag in the Power Armor Edition,"reads a tweet from the official Fallout twitter account".

If you paid for this trash bag and want 500 Atoms, which is enough to buy two or three trifling cosmetic bits, get in touch with Bethesda support.
