Fallout 76 is only a few weeks away, and we’re still waiting on that Break-it Early Test Application (or B.E.T.A., for the uninitiated). Thankfully, it sounds like we’ll get more information about the beta soon, like when it will launch and how long it will last, according to one Bethesda executive.
Responding to a fan asking about the beta’s length, specifically if it will run all the way up Fallout 76‘s full release, Bethesda global marketing VP Pete Hines tweeted that the developer will “have more information for you on that soon. Hopefully this week.”
A tweet last week from the official Fallout account confirmed that the beta will launch sometime in October without detailing a specific date. The developer has hinted that all progress you make in the beta will transfer over to the main game, and players will need enough time to at least reach level 5 to PvP, so there’s a practical reason why fans would want to know about how long it will last besides simple curiosity or obsession.
What exactly you’ll be able to accomplish in Fallout 76‘s Appalachia is still unclear. Will players actually get to set off a nuke, or will they have to wait until the full game to completely irradiate an entire section of the map? Hopefully, we’ll get answers to these questions sometime this week.
Fallout 76 launches on November 14th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. You’ll need to preorder the game if you want access to the beta.
