Fallout 76 May Get A Smaller Beta Before Full Beta’s Launch

Players will be selected at random.

Fallout 76

Quite recently, we learned that the selection for players for the Fallout 76 beta will begin in October, which means that the beta itself is likely to begin towards the end of October as well (since the game itself launches in November). However, if you think that might not be enough time for Bethesda to be able to properly test out everything they need to for such a massive, large-scale game, fret not- a smaller beta for the game might be held even before the actual beta itself.

Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Pete Hines, recently took to Twitter, and confirmed that a smaller test for the game will likely be going online “5 days or three weeks” before the full beta goes live- whatever the team at Bethesda Game Studios feels it needs to get enough feedback for the full beta itself.

Hines also clarified that the players participating in this mini beta will be chosen randomly from the pool of players that will be chosen for the full beta itself- players won’t have to do anything. “It’s how we’ve done it before,” Hines said. He is, of course, referring to The Elder Scrolls Online and The Elder Scrolls Legends.

Considering the fact that this is the first game of its kind that Bethesda Game Studios are attempting, with its online centric shared world approach, it makes sense that they’ll want to get as much testing done possible. They’ve admitted to being worried about charting into unknown territory in recent weeks, so it’s not much of a surprise that they’re holding a beta even for their beta. Fallout 76 launches on November 14 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
