Earlier this week, Bethesda revealed that the Fallout 76 beta is available for pre-download on Xbox One and that its first ‘session’ is set for 7 pm ET through 11 pm ET. With the Fallout 76 beta finally starting today, users who have signed up for the beta have a lot to look forward to, as we have seen from the hours of footage of the game that was recently made available to fans. In anticipation of the start of the beta, Bethesda has left a note to fans on Twitter.
In the note, Bethesda explains some background on Fallout 76, and how this game is completely different from what the publisher has attempted in the past. With that in mind, Bethesda reminds fans that, due to the scale of this game, there are bound to be various unforeseen bugs and issues that will inevitably come up during the beta, and that some bugs may even be discovered only after the launch of the game.

In the note, Bethesda states that it is aware of some performance-related issues, but urges fans to help in identifying the bugs that Bethesda is unaware of and report them, so that these issues can be addressed during the beta and after launch. Bethesda also asks fans to give advice on what is most important to fix, in order to make this online multiplayer game, that will apparently be supported forever, the best it can possibly be.
Bethesda further notes that usually after years of development on one game is finished, the developers take a break, but in the case of Fallout 76 all new work begins now at the start of the beta. It definitely seems that Bethesda is trying to make Fallout 76, which is one of the first of its kind, as spectacular as possible. It is positive to see that developers appreciate fan input and implement the feedback from gamers in order to make this game one that fans will truly enjoy.
Fallout 76 launches on November 14th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
