Bethesda in Hot Water After Falsely Advertising The Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition

Fallout 76 Nylon Bags

As if Fallout 76 is not in enough trouble already with the game being buggy as all hell, Bethesda just being silent about the issues and let’s not forget the lack of support and updates. It seems Bethesda once again screwed up and this time it is with their Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition.

Reddit user AlexanderDLarge (yes, that is his name) brought up an issue regarding the R3,999 Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition. The expensive version of the game was meant to include a Steelbook case, 23 collectable Fallout figurines, the Tricentennial Edition Bonus content, a glowing map, a wearable T-51B Power Armor Helmet and a Canvas Wes Tek Duffel Bag. However, it seems that Bethesda cheaped out on the bag as instead of getting a high-quality canvas duffel bag, the box came with a cheap nylon bag instead.

This is one ugly bag

When users went to complain about the bag, they were met with excuses as Bethesda just tried to cover up. One user was told that there was a lack of materials in order to make the bag so they had to use nylon instead. Another user was simply told that it was too expensive to make and the picture shown everywhere, even on the actual box you purchased, was just a prototype and they “were not planning on doing anything about it”. Bethesda even gave one user 500 in-game Atoms for complaining about the issue.

Bethesda then went and changed the description of the bag on their website to avoid any more issues but again, the box has the details slapped on the back of it and there is nothing they can do about that. I won’t be surprised if a lawsuit opens up in the next few weeks to take them down for false advertising. This is just another disappointment in a wave of bad things to happen to the game.
