For gamers who are eager to see what Fallout 76 will be bringing to the table, you might be pleased to learn that Bethesda has announced that the beta for the game will be kicking off on the 23rd of October. This is for Xbox One gamers who will be getting an exclusive headset, and those on the PS4 and PC can expect beta access a week later.
Bethesda also notes that the beta will not be running 24/7 during its beta period. According to the company, they want to limit the active uptime of the beta to try and gather as many players to its servers as possible to stress test it. The idea is to see if their servers are capable of handling large groups of players. After all what good is an MMO if it buckles under the weight of its players, right?
According to Bethesda, “On any given day the game might be up for anywhere between four to eight hours. Focusing as many players as we can into these windows is our prime objective. Then we’ll fix what we need to fix and do it again and again from the start of B.E.T.A. until a few days before launch. We’ll give you as much heads up as possible because we need you to log in during these times and play the game.”
Fallout 76 is expected to go live on the 14th of November, and beta access will be available to those who pre-order the game which gamers will be able to do so via Bethesda’s website.
