Fallout 76’s beta may start in two weeks

With Fallout 76’s launch coming in a month-and-a-half, Bethesda doesn’t have much time left to get its promised beta for pre-orders going. October was always the target window for this test, but according to a recent leak, now it’s looking likely that October 8th will be many players’ first look at this post-apocalyptic online game.

Lead Developer Pete Hines has been answering many fan questions on Twitter lately about Fallout 76. He confirmed that while workshops are “common areas that anyone can claim,” CAMPs and storage crates belong to players and can never be taken.

Bethesda recently announced that the official map name for Fallout 76’s region is “Appalachia.” The studio confirmed that name alongside a bizarre-looking “guitar sword” that marries the mountain folk lifestyle with the brutal realities of a post-nuclear world.

Ooooo, my bf and I will have just returned from our vacation cruise the day before and we have Monday off to transition back to real life before heading to work. Having Fallout 76 plus AC: Odyssey to distract us from the depressing thought of going back to work would be a very good thing.

Is this beta or is it headstart? I know they’re calling it a beta but if I remember correctly it won’t be wiped meaning it’s really a headstart.

Really? I thought he was Bethesda’s PR/Marketing guy.

start in a call center work your way up to customer punching bag, eventually get promoted to a position you have no learned or marketable skills in. worked for carbine! (tbh this is very much how it often works throughout the industry).

chances are he does very little actual development work and is still largely a customer punching bag in all but title.

He’s been Bethesda’s VP of Marketing for years, I think someone made a mistake there.
