Bethesda has announced that Xbox One players will be the first ones who could try the Fallout 76 beta. On October 23 the Fallout 76 will be released for Xbox One and week after that it will be released for PS4 and PC. The purpose of this as they said”stress test and break the game,” which basically means that the servers will be online during specific hours so they can test how many players can play at the same time. But so far no more specific has been confirmed yet. The play sessions for beta could last from four hours to eight, few days after beta version should be a launch day for the Fallout 76.
Bethesda also mentioned that players should not get discouraged if something goes wrong during the beta, this is why they make beta versions.”The beta is a work in progress version of the game.” Beta is only for preparation for the launch on November 14. During the beta, they need all suggestions and feedback to make Fallout 76 the best games possible not just for now but for years to come.
To be able to participate and play the beta you will need an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus membership, depending on which console you have. If you don’t have any of these memberships you need to get one, because Fallout 76 is an online title, you will require this membership to play. To be able to access the beta, you need to pre-order the game directly from Bethesda or look up a participating retailer.
Fallout 76 launches on November 14 for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. If you are a PC player, you need to get Bethesda’s launcher, the game won’t be available on Steam.
Even though yesterday Sony announced cross-play functionality for games like Fortnite and more, Fallout 76 have not been announced among these games.
