Fallout 76 is now available to pre-load for PC players who pre-ordered Bethesda's upcoming multiplayer Fallout game. While the PC beta isn't live until October 30, this will give you a chance to jump right in when the beta begins.
Fallout 76 beta is available to all players who pre-ordered Fallout 76 either through Bethesda or partnered retailers. Fallout 76 is notably absent from Steam with Bethesda preferring to release it themselves. Xbox players already held a beta, but soon PC and PS4 players will be able to try it out themselves.
Bethesda released the full beta schedule for Fallout 76 starting with a few more Xbox-only days before opening up to PC and PS4 players. The PC and PS4 beta begin on October 30 and will go from 4pm to 8pm PT. That's only four hours, so if you want to maximize your beta playtime it's a good idea to download it ahead of time so you don't wait to get the some 44GB beta downloaded and cut into your playtime.
As the #Fallout76 B.E.T.A. becomes available for everyone on Oct. 30, we wanted to look ahead to next week's anticipated sessions. Times are subject to change with issues that may arise, but we're hopeful this schedule will stay.
