Fallout 76 Beta Times Extended Due to Issues on PC

PC players' loss is every Fallout 76 fan's gain.

If you were able to get in and play some of the Fallout 76 Beta yesterday on Pc then you should count yourself as lucky. Many potential players tried to jump on right when the beta began, but found themselves plagued with issues, including some having to re-download the entire game. Given it’s size and the fact that hundreds, possibly thousands of people were all trying to download it at the same time, this took awhile and locked out many players. Thankfully Bethesda is ready to make that up to them with extended Fallout 76 Beta times for today.

According to the previous times, the Fallout 76 Beta was to be available today from 2pm to 7pm Eastern Time. A hefty chunk of gameplay, but also at some odd hours for players who might be at work or school. The new times stretch from 2pm to 11pm Eastern, making for a much larger window that should accommodate most people.

There’s two more sessions after today, one on November 3rd from 5pm to 9pm and another on the 4th from 2pm to 9pm. This means that today’s Fallout 76 Beta window is the largest before the game launches on November 14th. If you want to get in on the fun just be sure to place a preorder on any console and then enter the code sent to you by the retailer.
