As we quickly approach the Nov. 14, 2018, release date for Fallout 76, Bethesda has revealed that those that have pre-ordered Fallout 76 can expect to participate in the upcoming games B.E.T.A. this Oct. Here’s what you need to know.
As one of the biggest games of 2018 prepares to launch, Bethesda knows their game has a lot riding on its upcoming launch. Whether it’s what the game is capable of or not, Bethesda is well aware that their games have launched with a couple of bugs in the past. This very fact even became a running joke with Bethesda’s very own Todd Howard, Fallout series director, during E3 2018.
In order to ensure that their game doesn’t launch with a rocky start, Bethesda has revealed that Fallout 76 will have a full-blown B.E.T.A. or rather Break It Early Test Application this October. they beta will be available to those who have pre-ordered the game through participating retailers. If you’ve already pre-ordered the game, Bethesda has revealed you will need a Bethesda.net account and have it linked to your platform of choice in order to participate in the upcoming tests.
Bethesda has also revealed that the Break it Early Test Application will start out small in scale and grow in number just before the launch of the game. Those who don’t get in immediately should not be alarmed as Bethesda does sound like they want to start off with rather small numbers before moving forward with bigger numbers in order to test server stability.
With Fallout 76 launching on Nov. 14, 2018, we can only hope that Bethesda will truly test Todd Howard’s definition of a beta test given the name of their Break It Early Test application. Stay tuned as we’ll keep you updated during our time at QuakeCon 2018 about the future of the game and what to expect.
