Fallout 76 is the next game in the franchise. Many players have been interested in the Fallout 76 Beta and it seems that the Beta starts a month before the game is launched. According to Bethesda, the Fallout 76 Beta will start in October and in the beginning will only be for a small number of people that have pre-ordered the game.
As the launch date gets closer, more people will be added. If you have pre-ordered the game then you might have received the Fallout 76 Beta codes. If not then you should get the code in the upcoming few days. According to Bethesda:
Starting in October well 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.
. . .
To clarify, everyone who pre-orders at a participating retailer will be included in the B.E.T.A.
Previously we thought that only a select few would be able to take part in the Fallout 76 Beta, but that does not seem to be the case. Pete Hines further talked about the matter and made things clear. The following is what he had to say regarding the matter:
Everyone gets into the full BETA for their platform. Start to finish. If you’re in the BETA, you’re in the BETA. If we do things before the BETA, you could get randomly selected to help with that too. But nobody gets shortchanged on access to the BETA. I have confirmed with him (Todd Howard) what I just said is accurate.
Fallout 76 is a multiplayer game and some people are concerned regarding the direction that Bethesda is taking but the company has reassured the people time and time again that this is more of an experiment and this does not indicate the direction that the company is taking. There will be more single-player games coming out in the future.
While the initial Beta will be for people that have pre-ordered the game. I am sure that there will be an open beta as well that will allow more players to check out the game before they buy the game. I think this is very important.
Bethesda will be coming to Gamescom 2018 and you might be able to play the game there. If not then we might be able to get more information regarding the game. Stay tuned to SegmentNext for Gamescom 2018 coverage.
