'Fallout 76' BETA Will Be The Full Game & You Can Keep Your Progress
This news was addressed on the Fallout 76 BETA FAQ page, where the last question reads: "Is the BETA going to be the full game and will my progress carry over to launch?"
Bethesda simply answered: "Our current plan for the BETA is it will be the full game and all your progress is saved for launch. We hope you join us!"
This is great news for any players who get their hands on the early access codes because it means they won't have to start from scratch after the November release, but how exactly do you get these codes?
Their FAQ page has been a great source for information ever since the the reveal of Fallout 76, and it pretty much tells you everything you need to know about getting the game early.
It says: "Pre-ordering Fallout 76 is the only way to get access to the BETA." If you pre-ordered through a retailer, you'll need to head to Bethesda.net, create an account, and redeem your code - this will either be on your pre-order receipt or email confirmation.
Once that's done, nearer the time of the BETA launch you'll be emailed an access code or download instructions, and away you go. Bethesda recommends, when creating your account, you should sign up with the same email which is associated with your Xbox/PS4 gamertag for easier access and updates.
If you pre-ordered through a digital platform store (Xbox One Store, PlayStation Store, Bethesda.net) then you'll automatically receive access on the payment account, so don't worry about redeeming a code.
As you can see, PC players won't be able to download the BETA from Steam but only through Bethesda.net. This is also the case when the full game is released, but like Fallout Shelter it could come to Steam at a later date.
The BETA will start some time in October, so you've not got long until you jump into the biggest Fallout world yet. The game is set to be an online survival RPG and unlike any other previous Fallout title, so don't be surprised if it becomes a contender for Game of the Year.
Fallout 76 is set to be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 14 November this year. Will you be playing it? What about the Break-It Early Test Application? Let us know.
