Xbox One owners will be the first to play Fallout 76's beta


Xbox One owners will be the first gamers in the world to get time with Fallout 76 at home, Bethesda has revealed.

The game's beta, which is set to release sometime before the full release in November, will be coming to Xbox One first before PS4 and PC get their chance to try out the title. While a release date for the beta hasn't been confirmed as of yet, Bethesda noted that fans should keep an eye out on Fallout's social media channels for any future news.

To gain access to the beta, all you need to do is pre-order a copy of Fallout 76. You should then be given a redemption code on your receipt at certain retailers which will let you confirm you involvement in the beta on Bethesda's website. Follow the instructions on the website and you'll be signed up and ready to go.

Fallout 76 is a new game in the Fallout series which was announced back at E3 last week. The game is the first to feature multiplayer and will be "entirely online" according to Bethesda.

The title is based in West Virginia and is set as a prequel to all other games in the series. Players assume the role of the first vault dwellers to ascend from the vaults, looking to reclaim the world after the war of all wars.

The game will also feature single-player sections and a story with the option to opt out of multiplayer if you don't want to risk running into other players who might try to shoot you on sight.

Fallout 76's full release is planned for Nov. 14, 2018.
