The fallout from fans over the bags included in Bethesda’s Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition continues, but now it looks like the company is changing its stance on the nylon bags.

Fans who ordered the $200 Power Armor Edition of the game expected to receive a canvas duffle bag, like the one included in the promotional image, instead, fans received a much cheaper nylon carrying bag.

After the switch, and Bethesda’s incredibly out-of-touch response saying the original bags were “too expensive to make”, Bethesda offered unhappy customers 500 Atoms ($5) of in-game Fallout 76 currency.

Now, it seems like Bethesda has realized they messed up, and are trying to make it right by sending replacement canvas bags for users with the Power Armor Edition.

Fans who purchased the Collector’s Edition have until January 31 to submit a ticket to Bethesda here to receive a replacement canvas duffle bag.

This is definitely a step in the right direction for the company, but while the bags have become a symbol of fans dissatisfaction with Bethesda, replacing them will not fix all of the problems Fallout 76 has.

The Collector’s Edition description has been changed on Bethesda’s online store from including a ‘canvas’ bag to including the nylon one that fans actually received.

But, at least fans who paid $200 for the Power Armor edition will finally be getting what they thought they paid for in the first place.

Bethesda Game Studios and Amazon are creating a Fallout TV series based off of the developer’s legendary RPG.

The studio is working with producers at Kilter Films Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the minds behind HBO’s critically acclaimed series Westworld, Bethesda announced. Amazon has licensed the rights to the Fallout franchise, paving the way for a full series commitment from the entertainment giant.

“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time… So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios,” Joy and Nolan said in a joint statement.

The world of Fallout and the miniature stories within the main campaigns of the titles give the producers a rich catalogue of lore and characters that could be integrated into series of their own.

“Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life,” Chief Operating Officer and Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studio, Albert Cheng said.

While the announcement confirms that a full show is in the works, Executive Producer at Bethesda Todd Howard has been looking to make a show on Fallout for quite some time.

“Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen,” Howard said. “But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right.”

The name of the series is currently being referred to only as ‘Fallout,’ though that can change depending on the development of the show.

Details for the upcoming series are scarce as the studio ended their brief announcement teaser with the test pattern that’s been synonymous with the Fallout series that reads: “Please stand by.”
