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.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
