The Fallout 76 beta is now available for preload on Xbox One. On Wednesday,Reddit user ‘katarn343’ posted that there will be a stress test kicking off on October 23rd and run until the real beta becomes available on October 30th. Fallout 76 beta can now be downloaded by those who digitally pre-ordered the game on Xbox One. Bethesda is limiting the beta to pre-orders only across platforms and there won’t be a way for players to try out the game before purchasing. The beta will also be nearly 44GB large and, according to several reports, will not represent a finished version of the game as there are several pieces being left out on purpose.
The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. con now be downloaded by anyone who pre-ordered Fallout 76 digitally on the Xbox Store. Just search it up on the store and it’ll appear in the search results. It’s 43.47 GB, and it’s going to be playable on October 23rd. No word yet on physical pre-orders, but it will probably be available sometime within the week.
Keep in mind that the Stress Test and the B.E.T.A. are not the same file. They are two separate files. There’s going to be another Stress Test sometime before the 23rd, so don’t delete its file just yet if you want to participate. The B.E.T.A. is said to perform better than the version from the previous test, so we’ll see.
Also, the B.E.T.A. is not under NDA like the Stress Test is. The final game will have to be downloaded again, as it will not use the same file/client as the B.E.T.A
