Fallout 76’s Collector’s Edition isn’t what customers thought it would be

Fallout 76’s Collector’s Edition isn’t what customers thought it would be

In fact, if this list of most-downvoted comments is still accurate, Bethesda's response is now standing at the 4th most downvoted comment in Reddit history. You got a wearable T-51B Power Armor Helmet, a glow-in-the-dark map, collectible Fallout figurines, and most importantly, a "Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag". At this point, it's worth mentioning that the Power Armor Edition retails for $200.

Nevertheless, it doesn't make up for the fact that Bethesda made a significant change to an expensive product without informing its customers, and hasn't been handling the resulting complaints in a satisfactory manner.

The Fallout 76 drama just never ends, does it? In order to ease some of the heat from dissapointed fans, Bethesda has chose to offer some in-game currency.

In a response to a refund request for falsely advertising the product, Bethesda's customer service department explained that the original version that was advertised was merely a prototype of the bag.

Atoms are premium in-game currency in Fallout 76.

Fallout 76's deluxe Power Armour Edition costs $200 United States dollars, and includes the game in a fancy steelbook, a selection of in-game items, a glow-in-the-dark world map, and two dozen Fallout figurines. "We're sorry and understand this was not the right approach, and we'll work to make a better bridge between you and the dev team at BGS". Well, this wasn't the bag that made the final cut. Replies range from memes to players accusing Bethesda of going "full Electronic Arts", which is arguably the worst possible insult a gamer can hurl at a game studio. We aren't planning to do anything about it'.

'We hope this doesn't prevent anyone from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector's editions'.

Fallout 76 has seen no shortage of criticism since its November 14 debut, shaping up among 2018's most controversial launches yet. Bethesda plans on giving owners of the $200 Power Armor Edition due to the disappointment with the bag.
