Fans will get their first chance to play the highly anticipated Fallout 76 next month, according to Bethesda. We’ve known the public beta for the online multiplayer spin-off was coming for some time, but we didn’t have the exact date until this morning. According to the announcement players on Xbox One will get their first look at Fallout 76 on October 23rd, with PS4 and PC players joining on October 30th. (Update: Bethesda’s Pete Hines also promised more details soon)
“We’re excited to announce that our B.E.T.A. (Break-It Early Test Application) will arrive first on Xbox One on Tuesday, October 23rd and one week later for PlayStation 4 and PC players on Tuesday, October 30th,” explained Bethesda.
Bethesda was quick to point out that the Fallout 76 beta will not be available 24/7 during the availability window. Servers will go up and down at different times, so watch for more news as the event gets closer. The multiplayer focus for this game certainly shifts things around a lot.
Along with this news came the official intro video for the game. Players will begin their Appalachian journey within the confines of Vault 76, celebrating Reclamation Day as the vault dwellers begin to take their first steps into the wilds of the post-apocalyptic wasteland.
