Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition
8

Bethesda has become a heated topic for discussion, encircling itself in a number of controversies, user backlashes and deceptive trade practices. While Bethesda did break the silence by announcing two big Fallout 76 updates, things haven’t just settled yet.

Reddit user AlexanderDLarge drew attention to the whole situation. The $200 Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition was advertised to include an exclusive Steelcase, 24 collectable Fallout figurines, Tricentennial Edition Bonus digital items, a glowing map, a wearable T-51B Power Armor Helmet and most importantly, a Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag. However, people who did order the special edition received a cheap nylon bag that substituted the “Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag”.

The product listing for the Power Armor edition still advertises a canvas bag across all major retailers – Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, Target.

When conscious consumers contacted Bethesda regarding the matter, Bethesda replied –

Greetings!

Thank you for contacting Bethesda Customer Support. My name is Nicholas and I’d be happy to help you today!

Due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon case in the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition. We hope this doesn’t prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector’s editions.

Another user posted the issue on Bethesda Helpdesk, to which, Bethesda replied –

Hello,

We are sorry that you aren’t happy with the bag. The bag shown in the media was a prototype and was too expensive to make.

We aren’t planning on doing anything about it.

Considering the “unavailability of materials”, it’s Bethesda’s prime responsibility to inform its customers and people who’re planning on purchasing it in future. However, no retailer has corrected it at the time of publishing.

Bethesda Gear Store, however, has sneakily updated the product description on their website –

Bethesda hasn’t made any public announcements regarding the issue. Once again, we’ll contact Bethesda for a comment on the situation which will most likely go unnoticed.

      Seems like it.

    There must be a worldwide adhesive shortage, preventing the crafting of proper canvas bags. I guess Bethesda forgot to “Tag for search”…

    “We aren’t planning on doing anything about it”

    ARE YOU SERIOUS? They might as well say “Just f*****g deal with it”.
    Wow! A customer pays a pretty penny for these overpriced editions and expects it as is, and they switch and baited so hard.

    You guys need to fight back! If you paid for this edition, you NEED your moneys worth.

    This is why I’ve been refering to them as Bethaholes in the last few months. Let’s not forget they threatened to sue one of their customers for attempting to resell his unneeded and unopened The Evil Within 2. Hope they get sued for the latest bullcrap they pulled.

  • Kyoji Shirakani

    They should simply up and sue for false advertising. This is the most clear cut black and white case ever. Guaranteed easy win.

  • MrStatistX

    I don’t understand how anyone still can support this game.
    No matter if it’s “enjoyable” or not or if it’s not what people want, but there’s so much OTHER bullshittery going on.
