Bethesda has released a new trailer for Fallout 76 which gives players a glimpse of what’s to come. However, things get even better than this because Bethesda ended the trailer by announcing that the beta for Fallout 76 is opening soon! Bethesda announced that Xbox One players will be able to enter the beta version of Fallout 76 starting October 23rd while PlayStation 4 and PC players will need to wait until October 30th.
Fallout 76 Beta
Even though Bethesda revealed lots of gameplay footage and concept art for Fallout 76, we still have no idea how the highly anticipated online mode is going to feel like. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait that much longer since the beta version of Fallout 76 is going to open in less than a month.
Breaking the Game
Bethesda also posted an FAQ (frequently asked questions) about the beta and that’s where it stated that the main goal for the beta is to “stress test and break the game”. This is proof that players are going to be able to enter the online mode and that Bethesda wants as many people as possible to join in at the same time to see if any bugs cause problems.
Be Careful of Bugs!
Since this is a beta game we are talking about, Fallout 76 fans who are already enlisting in the beta program should be prepared to encounter lots of bugs. This is the case with all beta games and the entire purpose of opening the beta ahead of the official launch date is to give players a chance to test all the game’s features while “fishing” for bugs at the same time.
The last thing we need to mention is that the only thing Xbox One and PlayStation 4 fans will need to do in order to enjoy Fallout 76 is to have an Xbox Live or PlayStation subscription while PC players need to sign up directly from Bethesda’s official website.
