After Six Months, Fallout 76 Players are Finally Getting a Canvas Bag

After Six Months, Fallout 76 Players are Finally Getting a Canvas Bag

Put your power armor helmet where it belongs.

Fallout 76 collector's edition customers are finally getting the canvas bags that were promised. Replacement canvas bags for the $200 Fallout 76 collector's edition were shipped out last week and making their way into the hands of long-suffering customers.

When Fallout 76 was first announced, Bethesda revealed an expensive collector's edition whose centerpiece was a replica Power Armor helmet. But tucked away in the package was a carrying bag that was supposed to be made from canvas to match the military aesthetic.

The bag people received when the collector's edition first shipped was not made of canvas, but nylon. When customers complained, Bethesda said it was due to a manufacturing issue and the material cost of canvas. The bags were still technically usable, but nylon is no canvas, and fans were rightly outraged. Bethesda tried to soothe over the anger by offering customers 500 Atoms, or $5 of in-game Fallout 76 currency. But it wasn't enough.

In December 2018, Bethesda promised to replace the nylon bags for canvas ones, and six months later Bethesda is finally delivering on that promise. Users on social media have begun posting images of their newly gotten canvas Westtek bags and sure enough, they're canvas.

The canvas/nylon bag incident is just one of the many early problems that plagued the launch of Fallout 76. But as seen in Bethesda's E3 2019 presentation, the company is making a real effort to improve Fallout 76 both in-game, and out.

Some new announcements made for Fallout 76 is a new battle royale mode, which is fine, and the introduction of NPCs to the Appalachia region. Not having NPCs in Fallout 76 was a major point of contention, and a decision Bethesda strongly defended. NPCs in Fallout 76 will be like in other Fallout games, with dialogue trees and different factions.
