Fallout 76 is the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to issues, and with such a disaster surrounding the title’s Power Armor edition, owners will finally get their canvas bags. Thanks, Bethesda.
Bethesda has had a rough ride with Fallout 76, even when you take away the crashes, the bugs that have been present in the franchise since Fallout 3, the questionable design choices, etc. Take that away and you’re left with what seems to be the biggest issue with the title, the whole debacle around the $200 Power Armor edition’s not-so-canvas bag.
Bethesda promised buyers a military-style canvas bag, but when players received their purchase through the post, many were disappointed with both how late the special edition arrived, and the naff nylon bag they received instead of their promised and previously shown canvas bag.
After offering players a frankly insulting 500 atoms (about a fiver in value, or a door and a pot plant in the game) Bethesda has finally decided to stop being so frugal and send players what they paid for. This has been announced on Twitter:
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.

Yes, you’ll still need to do some work of your own and contact Bethesda yourself, but at least players will be able to get ahold of what they actually paid for. As they should have in the first place.
