Earlier this month, we wrote about a very dedicated Fallout player named Seth who had the genius idea to send 2,240 bottle caps to Bethesda as payment to pre-order Fallout 4. In a letter to the game developer he explained that he’s collected the caps in the seven years since Fallout 3 and, while he’s only seen the game available for “pre-war dollars”, he figured this should cover the cost (bottle caps serve as currency in the game).
Well, it worked. Seth got a reply from Bethesda community manager Matt Grandstaff, who said that since he was the first person to do this, they would send a copy of the game this November. He also joked that he’d be running the caps over to deposit them at the People’s Bank of Point Lookout.
So it looks like you’ll have to come up with another brilliant scheme (with marketing potential) to get free games as this one has already been taken.
Check out the tweet after the break.
