Fallout 76 release times - here’s exactly when you can play

Bethesda has revealed worldwide Fallout 76 release times

Bethesda’s online take on post-apocalyptic role-playing launches this week, and the studio has finally provided Fallout 76 release times so you know exactly when you can play. Fallout 76 will have a rolling worldwide launch starting at midnight on November 14, so technically our Australian friends will have first dibs on the full game.

As Bethesda’s graphic shows, access to the game will unlock in Australia at 12:01 AEST and the UK at 12:01 GMT. North America will have one launch at 12:01 EST, which translates to 9:01 PST if you’re on the west coast. Asia is getting a bit slighted in all this – the game’s midnight launch will come on November 15 in Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore.

Pre-loads for the full game are currently live, so you can get that roughly 60GB download started early. Check out the Fallout 76 system requirements if you’re not sure about your PC’s ability to run the game – the minimum specs have been lowered ever so slightly since they were first published before the beta.

You can see those times in image form below, if you prefer maps and visual aids.
