Fallout 76

Update: The headline was updated to match the story correctly.

Original Story:

There’s been some confusion regarding the public beta for Bethesda’s upcoming Fallout 76. Initially it was announced that all those who pre-order the game will get into the beta (though Xbox One players would get access before others), but recent updates by Bethesda have left everyone a little confused.

A recent update confirmed that player “selection” for the beta would begin in October, with the very mention of the word “selection” going against the initial belief that simply pre-ordering the game would get you into the beta. Later, Pete Hines confirmed on Twitter that before the full beta goes live, there might be a smaller beta to test things out, and that for those purposes, players would be selected at random from the larger pool of selected players for the full beta.

Understandably, that led to some confusion among the fan base. Bethesda’s VP of marketing Pete Hines, though, has taken to Twitter to assuage some concerns, confirming “everyone” will indeed get into the game’s full beta for their platform from “start to finish”, and that the “random selection” is meant only for stuff the developer might end up doing before the full beta is launched.

As for when the beta will go live (or the mini beta, even), there is still no word. Fallout 76 itself launches on November 14 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
