It's difficult to deny that Fallout 76 has had what's, arguably, one of the most botched launches of the year and not just because of its plethora of bugs.
One story that began making the rounds a few days ago revolved around the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition. Initially advertised to contain a "Canvas West Tek Dufflel Bag", alongside other items, it gave the people who spent $200 dollars purchasing it a nylon bag instead. This, naturally, didn't sit well with them.
Bethesda's customer support telling people that they weren't going to do anything about it didn't help matters. Neither did the fact that, as it turns out, a handful of influencers had received swanky bags. When the publisher did eventually come around, it offered players 500 Atoms for the trouble, which might sound good until you realize that the amount wasn't enough to even purchase an in-game bag.
Needless to say, dissatisfied customers and fans kicked off a loud ruckus online that seems to have paid off. Bethesda took to Twitter to say the following: "We are finalizing manufacturing plans for replacement canvas bags for the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition. If you purchased the CE, please visit https://beth.games/2QDropM and submit a ticket by Jan. 31, 2019. We’ll arrange to send you a replacement as soon as the bags are ready.". Provided nothing else breaks in the meantime, this is a step long overdue and one that the community has, in part, welcomed.
That does leave Fallout 76 with plenty of other issues, though. There's a wide range of bugs from the more common enemies doing T-poses and floating across the world, to the more exotic immortality bug that popped up a while back. Then you've a world that feels quite empty, alongside performance and connection issues. Although they're beasts of a different nature, perhaps this is a sign that Bethsda will actively start working towards turning things around.
