Pre-order for access to the beta.

Fallout 76

Bethesda Softworks has released the opening movie for Fallout 76, as well as announced that the “Break-It Early Test Application (B.E.T.A.)” will launch for Xbox One on October 23, followed by PlayStation 4 and PC on October 30. All users who pre-order the game will be granted access.

Here is an overview of the B.E.T.A., via Bethesda Softworks:

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 to 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. We’ll also keep you posted through our official @Fallout and @bethesdastudios on Twitter as well as the Bethesda.net forums and our Bethesda.net Status Page to learn when servers will be online.

Fallout 76 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 14.
