Bethesda’s community administrator, Jurassica, has announced that Fallout 76 beta or “B.E.T.A.” test will start in October. Folks who game on Xbox One will be selected first, then PS4 and PC players. Anyone who pre-orders the game will be able to join the beta.
The information regarding Fallout 76 beta comes from bethesda.net, where we learn members of the Bethesda regularly lurk forums and read through your questions and feedback about the game. Furthermore, the community administrator notes that they’ll be “selecting people” who have pre-ordered the game from a participating retailer to enter the October beta:
Popping in to say that it’s been very fun seeing everyone’s discussion on Fallout 76 and what your hopes and thoughts are about the game. I and members of the studio regularly lurk, and it’s been great to read through your questions and feedback. With that in mind, we know you’re anxious to learn more about the game and more specifically, about the B.E.T.A.
Starting in October we’ll be selecting people who have pre-ordered the game from a participating retailer to enter our B.E.T.A. We’ll start small and grow over time as we prepare for launch. Be sure you’ve read our F.A.Q., for details on how to redeem your B.E.T.A. code and other important details.”
The next part of the post relays that during Fallout 76’s panel at QuakeCon, the devs will be answering some of your questions. If you can’t arrive in Dallas, Texas, you can join the event via live stream airing on Mixer:
“Beyond that, we know you have numerous questions about the game. Things are still changing and being iterated on, so we cannot answer everything yet, but we encourage you to submit your questions. During the Fallout 76 panel at QuakeCon we’ll be answering some of your questions. If you’re in Dallas, come join us. If you’re not able to make in person, you can check out all the fun via the live stream airing on Mixer. Send questions our way by posting them here in the forums, on any of the Fallout subreddits, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.”
With all of that said, you can take away from this that Bethesda is currently working on an October beta for Fallout 76. However, the beta has no specific release date yet. In the meantime, you can look forward to Fallout 76′s launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 14th, 2018.
