Bethesda has announced that the beta for its upcoming multiplayer action-RPG, Fallout 76, will be heading to Xbox One first.
In an updated FAQ on the official site, Bethesda stated that the Xbox One version of the beta will begin first. This will then be followed by the other platforms, though it doesn’t state when exactly.
You will have to pre-order Fallout 76 to get access to the beta, which you can do digitally or in shops – where a code will be provided.
The blurb for the beta reads:
“Do you have nerves of steel? An ironclad will? Average hygiene and an affinity for pre-packaged goods? Then Vault-Tec WANTS you! If you think you have what it takes to be a B.E.T.A. tester – and enjoy prolonged confinement without sunlight – then you’re in luck! Join the proud ranks of Vault 76 today.”
There is also an amusing disclaimer:
“Vault-Tec is not liable for any damages, injuries, or mental anguish inflicted during or after the B.E.T.A. Always consult your Vault Overseer for guidance on appropriate B.E.T.A. usage.”
Perhaps “mental anguish” refers to the inevitable first wave of bugs? We’ll see.
Fallout 76 is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on November 14.
