We're a few months away from the beta for Fallout 76 and we're getting a little more clarity. Bethesda has updated their FAQ to address a few things.
First off, those that participate in the beta will have all their progress saved for the full release. Yup, you won't lose what you've done in the beta, which is something we rarely see if ever. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but we'll have to see how this goes.
Secondly, the game will only be available on Bethesda.net. Sorry to those who would like to have it in their Steam library, but Bethesda's keeping the digital distribution of this game in house. You might still be able to add it manually to your Steam library, but Bethesda.net will have to be running to play the game.
There still isn't a way yet to register for the beta if you didn't pre-order the game. Hopefully, that comes in soon. Anyone that pre-orders gets in automatically.
Xbox One beta players will be able to play it first followed by the PC and PlayStation 4 group.
Fallout 76 will be hitting the stores on November 14, 2018 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
