Of all the things Fallout 76 has got wrong, a switcheroo on a collector’s edition bag has proved to be one of the most contentious.
In an attempt to make that right, Bethesda is now going to send folks a proper canvas bag – presumably like the ones originally advertised – as a replacement for the plastic junk.
If you’re new to this saga, as part of a $299.95 Collector’s Edition for Fallout 76, Bethesda promised fans they’d be getting a military-style canvas bag as part of the deal. Instead, and with no warning, people were sent a very cheap nylon bag.

In response to fan outcry over the move, Bethesda tweeted this earlier today:
We are finalizing manufacturing plans for replacement canvas bags for the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition. If you purchased the CE, please visit https://t.co/S5ClEZuQrx and submit a ticket by Jan. 31, 2019. We’ll arrange to send you a replacement as soon as the bags are ready.

I can’t believe this game is such a mess that I’ve had to write two stories about a plastic bag.
