Xbox One users will get first dibs on Fallout 76’s Beta

Vault dwellers on other platforms get to sleep in, apparently.

Fallout 76 is one of the most-anticipated titles announced at E3, and players on Xbox One will get to emerge from the vault ahead of other platforms. The post-apocalyptic RPG has a huge fanbase, and they’re all waiting for the chance to play the game’s beta release, Break It Early Test Application, also known as beta.

Due to the entirely online nature of the game, which is a departure from the usually single-player RPGs that Bethesda are known for, this online beta test will help to mitigate the number of bugs and issues often found in their games at release.

Revealed in a FAQ posted on Bethesda’s website for the game, Fallout 76’s beta will have a timed exclusive release on Xbox One before later heading to Playstation 4 and PC. There’s no release date as yet for when that beta will start for any of the three platforms, just a vague note by Bethesda saying that release dates will be announced through its Fallout social media channels.

The only way to get into the beta is to pre-order Fallout 76 before its November 14th release.

E3 attendees were given a real-world facsimile of ‘Reclamation Day’ while at the event, although they weren’t able to experience the in-game experience of awakening in Vault 76.
