Fallout 76 will have a beta

fallout 76

During its 2018 E3 press conferences, Bethesda devoted a hefty chunk to its next Fallout game: Fallout 76. Along with showing off the first in-game footage and detailing how its move to online would work, Bethesda Games Studios director Todd Howard announced that Fallout 76 will have a beta to iron out bugs in the system.

Now, we've come to expect bugs from Betheda's games. Love them as we do, the games are often flawed as a result of their ambition. Normally that's not a huge issue, patches and modders solves many of the issues but when it comes to a multiplayer game, clearly Bethesda are keen to avoid the traditional problems.

Check our guide for comprehensive rundown of all things E3 2018.

Howard didn't announce when the beta would begin but with the Fallout 76 release date set just four months away, it can't be too far away. I'm itching in my power armour to get into that game, and getting my hands on a nuclear missile code.

Because, let's face it, given the option, you're going to nuke the hell out of your neighbours.

While we wait for that beta to open up have another watch of that gameplay trailer:

Bethesda put together a cracking show this year. I mean, when the news of a new DOOM isn't a headliner then you know its been a special show.

"Pre-ordering Fallout 76 is the only way to get access to the B.E.T.A. ". This is a bummer. Hopefully there's a pre-order that includes beta on amazon. So far looks like only physical copies are up and no word on the beta.

The few times I've participated in Beta I burnt the game before it's initial launch. Most people I know just want to to play the game as soon as possible and don't really care if the purpose is to iron out bugs or to stress test the servers. Then they complain on the forums that they game is unplayable, clunky or the servers don't work as intended.

I really don't want to spoil the experience of a (mostly) completed game again by participating in that hassle.
