Bethesda has taken to their forums to announce that the beta phase for Fallout 76 will be beginning in October. Bethesda will be selecting users who have pre-ordered the title from participating retailers to be involved within the testing.


Community Administrator, 'Jurassica' posted to the Bethesda forums detailing how players can be involved within the beta, "everyone who pre-orders at a participating retailer will be included in the B.E.T.A." Jurassica says that if players are unsure if they are eligible to participate within the beta that they should check out the Fallout 76's frequently asked questions here.

Unfortunately, it is not revealed what content players will have available to them to test, what we do know is that players will have to decide whether they are going to be working together to survive, or are they going to go rogue and make everyone else's lives much more difficult. Fallout 76's map is 4x the size of Fallout 4, it will be the largest scale dynamic world ever created within the Fallout universe. Bethesda has really gone all out for this release, so hopefully as the beta goes live and people jump into it to test, we continue to hear many more good things about the new world. Fallout 76 will be released on November 14th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
