As you may have seen earlier in the day, Bethesda got hot water when she shipped the Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76 with a slight difference – the bag in which the mask is entered is nylon instead of canvas, as promised at the origin. But things got heated when a member of society reacted rather simply, instead of actually doing something about it.
Bethesda has since responded, choosing to apologize for the inconvenience. But now, society is making an extra effort, offering 500 free atoms to spend in the game they've bought the Power Armor Edition Game.
You can see the tweet below, as well as the link where these players can go if they want to sign up for Atoms:
We understand and respect the fact that the power armor edition bag is disappointing. We are sorry. Please contact Bethesda Support to provide proof of your CE purchase. They will help you to give 500 atoms to your account.

This is a far cry from the situation earlier today, in which a user pointed to a response from the company that said: "The bag presented in the media was a prototype and was too expensive to manufacture," followed by rude, "We do not expect to do anything about it."
This caused a frenzy among fans, wondering why Bethesda would respond as well. The company has since replied: "The Bethesda Store Support Member is a temporary contract employee and is not directly employed by Bethesda or Bethesda Game Studios. We apologize to the client who took the time to reach out. The response from the support was incorrect and not in accordance with our policy of conduct. "
That the 500 Atmos make the right choice in terms of relief from these ailments remains to be seen. Looks like they're not really trying to create canvas bags as promised, and that might get some players thinking about a refund, as cool as the Fall the masks are. We have not heard much about it yet, Bethesda just released its response a few minutes ago. We'll see if the atoms go around or not.
Fallout 76 is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
