Here's Today's "Bethesda Screwed Up" News Item

Well this is starting to become monotonous

Honestly, it’s not going well for Bethesda is it? Poor reviews, bug laden product, lawsuits, and now they’ve been hit with more complaints.

The $200 Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition was advertised with a number of physical extras including a a wearable T-51B Power Armor Helmet and a Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag. That was the official description, a canvas bag, it looked quite rugged and you can see it here in the left of the picture.

Unfortunately that’s not what shipped. The collectors edition came with a rather cheap looking nylon bag, and as you might expect, people are unhappy.

A post on Reddit includes an response from Bethesda customer support in regards to a complaint about the bag. “The bag shown in the media was a prototype and too expensive to make,” is the reply,”We aren’t planning to do anything about it.” Mods on Reddit seem to think the email is legitimate, as is another similar response from Bethesda.

This is the bag that was shipped, it does look rather cheap and flimsy.

Bethesda have yet to comment, Twitter on the other hand, has.

I feel Bethesda need a hug right now. Quickly followed by shouting “WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!” in their face, but a hug first.

    They don’t need a hug. They need a fu**ing good slap! ;-)

    Can’t help but agree with mike. It wouldn’t be so bad if they ‘fessed up, but right now there is just a general arrogance sprinkled between it all.

    What happened to them? I remember when the Bethesda name stood for quality, finished work.

    I don’t know where this PA game set was made, but working in asia for many years,I think this is a classic situation where someone in charge of the development and purchase decided to put some of the PoPs budget inside his own pockets!
