Video Game News, Reviews and Reflection! New Articles Released Randomly Every Week!
Two weeks ago, Imgur user GatorMacheteJr posted pictures of a collection of bottle caps on his page, stating his intent to use 2,240 of them as a form of currency, like in the popular Fallout series, to pay the pre-order cost of the upcoming fourth installment. Last week, he reported that he was successful, and later reports confirm it.
The user was contacted by Matt Grandstaff, Bethesda’s global community lead, via email to congratulate him on his copy being reserved and that he would be taking the caps “to the People’s Bank of Point Lookout.” You gotta love a community led by a guy like that.
Though this was a successful gamble, chances are repeat attempts will fall on deaf ears; Grandstaff said the man, identified as “Seth” would be receiving his copy as “the first to attempt” the offer.
Fallout 4 will be released on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC, with a release date set for November 10th, 2015.
