Bethesda’s latest entry in the Fallout series, Fallout 76, is nearly upon us. Set to launch in the early part of November, players looking to try out the new Fallout game will have the chance to take part in a beta (or BREAK-IT EARLY TEST APPLICATION) near the end of October. We’ve got all the details you need to know below including the beta release date, how to join the beta and even how much space the beta will take up on your Xbox One or PC.
Fallout 76 Beta Release Date
Players looking to dive into the Fallout 76 beta can do so beginning on October 30 for PC players. If you’re looking to play the game on the Xbox One, then you’ll be able to gain access on October 23. According to information released by the developer, the beta is set to turn into the full release version of the game when it finally releases in November. As such, players should expect to download around 45GB of data to install the beta and play it.
Much like the original announcement back in September, Bethesda has once more confirmed that anyone looking to dive into the beta and try it out will need to preorder Fallout 76 at Amazon or another retailer and then redeem the beta download code that you receive in an email (or on your receipt if you pre-purchase a physical copy of the game). If you’re playing on the PC, you’ll need to download Bethesda’s launcher, as Fallout 76 will not be available on Steam at launch.
The Fallout 76 beta will take place for two weeks before it comes to an end, with 7 days of that time being available exclusively to Xbox One players. At this time, there do not appear to be any plans for a PlayStation 4 beta to take place, so users looking to try out the beta will need to pre-purchase the game on Xbox One or PC. We’ll have more information about the Fallout 76 beta as it drops, so make sure you check back occasionally to find the most up-to-date information about Bethesda’s upcoming adventure.
