This past weekend, Xbox partnered with publisher Bethesda Softworks and the Philadelphia 76ers to reveal several unique collaborations to celebrate the upcoming launch of Fallout 76 on November 14. Watch the highlight reel above and keep reading to learn more about the Vault Suit walk-in, custom player kits, “Radioactive Edition” jerseys, a Markelle Fultz & Mascot video series, and more.
Vault Suit Walk-in: As seen in the highlight reel and on Instagram, Markelle Fultz made a grand entrance to the 76ers game versus the Detroit Pistons on Saturday, November 3, donning a custom-made Vault Suit. Vault Dwellers, beware, Markelle will see you in the wasteland.
Game Takeover: Vault Boy also brought plenty of Luck to the Wells Fargo Center, as the Philadelphia 76ers held on to beat the Detroit Pistons 109 – 99. The in-arena signage, Xbox One Controller foam hands, courtside t-shirts, and Vault Boy big heads (which were used as distractors during opponent free throws) may have helped, too.
Custom Player Kits: Partnering in secret with Markelle, Xbox and Fallout 76 teams put together custom kits to surprise each one of his 76ers teammates with. Featured in each kit were personalized “Radioactive” Xbox One Xs, a custom Xbox One controller, personalized custom jerseys, and copy of Fallout 76 for Xbox One. It’s good to be teammates with Markelle.
“Radioactive” and “Tricentennial” Edition Jerseys: Inspired by the world of Fallout, the team created home and away jerseys that would appeal to any Vault baller. The “Tricentennial Edition” jersey celebrates 300 years of freedom and commemorates the opening of Vault 76 in the classic Vault Suit color scheme. The “Radioactive Edition” jersey glows green, having spent too much time outside in the wasteland. When the lights are turned off, the jersey is even harder to miss. Turn off the lights, and you’ll be even harder to miss. Vault Boy approved.
Markelle & Mascot Video Series: Vault Boy came to Philadelphia to cheer the team on and stopped by the Philadelphia 76ers Training Complex to work on his game. Here’s what happened.
