There is a new product in relation to Fallout 76, and it's not about the everyday average gamer. You may have heard of Nuka Cola – especially if you previously played Fallout – and you may have heard early chatter about this Nuka Dark Rum. It was supposed to be a glorious bottle of rum made in the great tradition of high quality licensed and Bethesda-confirmed spin-off products from the past. Now, here on the tail in late 2018 as Nuka Dark Rum ships to early buyers, something looks a little … off.
The bottle is visibly displayed at the place where it is sold, at the place where it was issued. It's not true – it's kind. In any case, you will see a few making bottle. You will also see a set of images depicting the RUM barrel, several glass containers (glasses) from rum, ice, and some gamers. You will see some heavy metal – much in the tradition of Fallout games in general.
"Nuka Dark Rum shares the same look as the other Nuka-Cola bottles, but the black color and simplicity label. Nuka Dark Rum is an alcoholic version of Nuka-Cola, with 35% alcohol content per volume. endurance with 1, but lowers the perception of 1. Nuka Dark Rum bot with Badi gives ice cold Nuka Dark Rum, but no extra benefit. "
The images on the bottle do not necessarily mean that the material with which it was made. The text of the page does not mention plastic or glass – nor any other materials with which the rum container was made. Several images of tanks and dark-glass tanks are shown, all with the Nuke Dark (natural-tasted and caramel-colored) logo decorated on their fronts and / or sides.
From shipping, a note appeared on the tail of the website (a page-side web site, as it was), which reads as follows.
The package (not the bottle inside) is 13 centimeters high and 6 centimeters wide – it's pretty massive. Included in the text of Silver Screen Bottling Co., COO and Sommelier Ryan Mc Elveen's text editor is the following: "This is a project we are very proud of and we are sorry that you feel that you were somehow deceived." McElveen also writes: "We can not wait to see it personally and taste it if it's for ourselves, we are not sure that images or videos make that justice." For those users who remain unconvinced, they were told that they can freely send a note to the creators and they "will work to be right".
Below you will see a video posted on December 5th by Silver Brochering Company. The video is pretty clear what the package includes – a glass bottle in a plastic box. It's not so clear on the main sales site – and as you can imagine, some fans are very dissatisfied.
What do you think of this situation? Is it only the case of Bethesda to lose her mind? Or, people who pay LARGE BILLS for a bottle of rum are justified in their expectations that what is displayed on the sales website will be a real product, and not just a case for the product (a glass bottle lying inside the plastic case) ?
Given the crashes of the video on YouTube above and the amount of mentioning the plastic bottle at locations like Liquorama, it's quite clear there is some inadequate communication in the mix.
