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

But even those who chose to give "Fallout 76" a try have struggled with limited gameplay and game-breaking glitches, leading waves of players to demand a full refund from Bethesda.

Advertised as a "Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag", the one that was actually given out as part of the package was uh... nylon.

I wanted to let you know that we have updated our initial investigation to now include complaints from purchasers of the Power Armor Edition.

Bethesda later followed up with a public apology, issuing the following statement. Bethesda is now in the spotlight again, this time for its $200 Power Armor Edition and included nylon bag.

It would appear that the actual gameplay of Fallout 76 isn't the only thing that Bethesda have skimped out on.

While this is definitely a much more cost-effective solution for Bethesda, it is doubtful fans would readily accept it. We'll see if Bethesda chooses to offer more compensation to Power Armor Edition buyers, because at the moment, it's clear that many consumers consider 500 Atoms to be insulting. They offered each buyer 500 Atoms within Fallout 76, which is $5 United States dollars worth of in-game currency.

Bethesda has even launched a special support page for the nylon bag controversy, which I will dub from now on, bag-gate.

"The bag shown in the media was a prototype and was too expensive to make", a support person told the complainer.

Bethesda Studios is refusing refunds based on their digital store policy, but some players previously reported that their refunds were granted by the company's support team. These are worth 500 Atoms, which is equivalent to $5 Dollars in the real world.

'We aren't planning on doing anything about it'. "We hope this doesn't prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector's editions", concluded the communication.

"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".

A pack of 500 atoms costs $4.99, and 500 atoms isn't even enough to buy the Fallout 76 postman skin that comes with its own canvas bag.
