If you’re an Xbox Insider and pre-ordered the game, then you get even earlier access.
Bethesda’s Fallout 76 will have its beta on October 23rd for Xbox One players, with PS4 and PC players getting access on October 30th. It will consist of the full game, with progress transferring over when the game launches officially in November. However, you still need to pre-order for access to the beta.
That being said, Xbox Insiders who pre-ordered on the Xbox One can enjoy even earlier access. Bethesda have announced a stress test for Fallout 76 that will start on October 13th and last the weekend. More information on start times will be provided by the official Bethesda and Fallout Twitter channels, so stay tuned for more information.
It’s worth noting that the stress test is small and will only be exclusive to North America. Furthermore, unlike the beta, content here is under NDA, so participants can’t share everything willy-nilly. Progress also won’t carry over, and the stress test won’t even be the same build as the upcoming beta. Keep all of that in mind before taking the plunge.
Fallout 76 is out on November 14th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
