The $ 200 Power Armor edition of Fallout 76 promised fans and loads of stuff, including what looked like a very nice canvas bag. Which they did not end up getting, because between announcing the bundle and shipping it Bethesda pulled a lil 'switcheroo.
Up top is the military-style canvas bag as it was promised (and as it's still advertised on sites like Amazon):
And here's what's been sent out to fans:
Cost and production issues occur all the time with collector's editions ranging from breaking things to figures not turning out as expected to components straight up disappearing.
What's causing problems here-and lots of people are very unhappy about this-is probably two things. The first is that this game itself is not very good, which would compound a lot of folk's disappointment.
Second, though, is Bethesda's response. Fans complaining about the switch are getting answers like this:
So Bethesda knew they were changing the bag, said nothing, offered nothing, released the game, and now that fans are complaining that they are not getting what was advertised and what they paid for, they get an email that literally says "we hope this does not prevent you from enjoying what we feel is one of our best collector's editions ".
That's on top of the fact that the Power Armor edition of the game was delayed, to the point where Bethesda had to email out codes for customers so they could get to the game while they were waiting for their giant boxes to arrive.
This game is a mess.
