Bethesda has revealed that it is extending the pre-beta sneak peek for Fallout 76’s battle royale mode beyond its original June 17th end date.
The end of the Nuclear Winter sneak peek was originally scheduled to coincide with the end of Fallout 76’s free trial week, but Bethesda has decided to keep it around due to the team being “blown away by the reactions and responses.”
We’re blown away by the response to Nuclear Winter. Thanks for playing!
With how much fun you’re having with this mode, we have decided to keep the pre-beta sneak peek of #NuclearWinter live in the game. Keep sharing feedback – there’s more to come! https://t.co/6u9WgAXNf9 pic.twitter.com/Y4AoXbsPxH

“With all the excitement and popularity, we wanted to let you know that the pre-beta sneak peek of Nuclear Winter will remain on and continue to receive updates, so keep sharing your feedback,” Bethesda wrote in an update on its official site. “There’s more to come! Thank you again for playing, sharing, and being the best community there is.”
Nuclear Winter was unveiled during Bethesda’s E3 press conference and sees 52 players battling it out to become the new Overseer of Vault 51. Players will have to pick up weapons and armor, and use them to take out both creatures in the game world and other players, while avoiding the ever-closing ring of fire.
Several features from the main game have been carried over to the battle royale mode, including C.A.M.P.S, and nukes. C.A.M.P.S have been simplified in Nuclear Winter and no longer cost resources, however, certain items have been reworked to prevent them being overpowered, such as turrets are now lootable items. More information about the new mode can be found over on Bethesda’s site.
Nuclear Winter is available to try out now in Fallout 76 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game is currently free to play until June 17th.
