When The Fallout 76 Beta Ends
Fallout 76 is a new ambitious project from Bethesda Games Studios set in the Fallout universe. Taking place before all previous Fallout games, players will find themselves in the rolling hills and countryside of West Virginia just 20 years after the bombs dropped. The biggest change to the Fallout Formula this time around is that the entire game is online. You will encounter other players on your journey, and figuring out if they are friend or foe is part of the challenge. With giant online games it can be tricky to work out all of the bugs before launch, so Bethesda has decided to have a Beta test, which they cleverly named the “Break-it Early Test Application” this October.
In order to gain access to the Beta, which starts sometime in October, you will have had to pre-order the game from a participating retailer and then you will be randomly selected to receive access. No word has been given on what date in October this Beta will begin or how long it will last. More information is said to be released about Fallout: 76 this August at Quakecon during their panel, so maybe more concrete information will be given there.
Fallout: 76 will encourage players to work together to survive in this vastly different wasteland and help rebuild the world we once knew. Settlement building has been changed to allow players to build anywhere and set up shop however they want. This will allow players to really feel like they have a spot to go back to and hangout with their friends, making the world feel even more like their own. Hopefully the Beta will let players really dig into that system and see just how crazy these settlements can get.
