If you’re patiently waiting for the November 14 release of Fallout 76 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, you’ll get to have a small bit of the action if you pre-order now. Bethesda recently announced its B.E.T.A. program for those who pre-order the game, which will be available on October 23 for Xbox One players and October 30 for PlayStation 4 and PC players. The 45 GB download is intended to be the full game experience, and Bethesda intends for progress to carry over to the official release.
From the official FAQ for the B.E.T.A.:
During the B.E.T.A. one of our primary goals is to stress test and break the game. As such, the servers will not be running 24/7; instead, they’ll be online during targeted timeframes so we can get as many people as possible playing at the same time. Why? Because that’s the best way put all our systems to the test and see how they respond.
On any given day the game might be up for anywhere between four to eight hours. Focusing as many players as we can into these windows is our prime objective. Then we’ll fix what we need to fix and do it again and again from the start of B.E.T.A. until a few days before launch. We’ll give you as much heads up as possible because we need you to log in during these times and play the game.
In addition to the B.E.T.A. announcement, Bethesda has released a new intro for the game:
While players ultimately will experience unique adventures, stories, and exciting moments along their Fallout 76 journey, they’ll all begin the same: within the safe confines of Vault 76 on Reclamation Day. For the very first time, we’re excited to share the first step players will take into beautiful, untamed Appalachia…
