For those familiar with the Fallout series, you will recognise the currency that’s used within the game, bottle caps! and one very dedicated fan took it upon himself to hoard as many bottle caps starting from the release date of Fallout 3 to the announcement of Fallout 4. The Fallout fan named Seth had quite the collection of bottle caps from a 7.5 years of college and grad school experience, an estimated count of around 2,240 bottle caps.
After Bethesda’s announcement for the highly anticipated Fallout 4, Seth had the greatest idea to put his bottle cap collection to good use to pre-order the game ready for its November release for Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox one and of course PC.
The interesting news we’ve all been waiting for was Bethesda’s response to see if they would actually accept this for a pre-order and as awesome as Bethesda studios are they actually did accept it, on Wednesday Seth received and email from Bethesda global community lead Matt Grandstaff. While Seth was successful in getting Bethesda to actually accept and agree to a promised copy of the game for the exchange of his hard-earned bottle caps.

Granstaff was clear that this was only because he was the first person to attempt this stunt and that anyone else that wants to get their ghoul hands on a copy of fallout 4 they will have to preorder like everyone else. I think it’s great that Bethesda accepted it, it really shows that they love their fans. Did any of you plan on sending Bethesda your hard-earned caps?.
