|Well Iíll be. The scheme to get Fallout 4 using only bottlecaps actually worked!
For those of you that havenít been following this: last week, a Redditor shared pictures of a shipment that was being sent to Bethesda by a friend. It included a letter, and a package containing about 2,240 bottlecaps. Real ones. From beers and drinks and such. The intention was, of course, to see if they could pre-order Fallout 4 using Falloutís trademark currency. The fan said that it took them years to amass that many caps. It was a fun stunt that had no guarantee of working...but it looks like the effort was not in vain.
Today, GatorMacheteJr posted an update on imgur: Bethesda not only received the caps, they are going to honor the deal. Amazing.
ď[Bethesda] told me since I was the first person to do this, I would be receiving a copy of the game this November, and that [they] would be running my caps over to deposit them at the Peopleís Bank of Point Lookout,Ē GatorMacheteJr wrote.
What do you think of this news?
