On a Bethesda forum today, a community administrator talked a bit about the upcoming beta for Fallout 76. It appears that members of the studio “regularly lurk” and known how much people have been discussing the B.E.T.A.
Don’t get your hopes too high, as the B.E.T.A. won’t be coming until sometime in October. Of course, this is only a month before Fallout 76’s launch. Bethesda did say it will start out small and grow over the month, obviously to test what their servers can handle.
It appears that only people who pre-order Fallout 76 will be able to access the B.E.T.A. at all. Even then you might not get in. Xbox One owners have an advantage, as they’ll be the first platform to access the B.E.T.A.
Fallout 76 launches November 14th, 2018. However, if you want to know more, Bethesda will be holding a panel at QuakeCon. They’ll be answering questions from fans, so feel free to submit one via Bethesda’s forum, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Fallout subreddits.
