Folks who pre-ordered the game can jump into the PC beta starting October 30. As of press time, we're not sure when pre-loading will start.

We'll let you know as soon as we hear something. Also, it's possible the specs could change after the beta period ends, so don't take these as gospel just yet.

You can access the beta from the Bethesda Launcher once it’s live. If you pre-ordered Fallout 76 from a store such as Amazon or Game, you will have received a code on or with your physical or digital receipt. PC players can redeem this code on the Bethesda Launcher to gain access to the beta once it’s available.

The second phase of the Xbox One beta for Fallout 76 is going on this weekend, starting October 27. The third phase will take place the following day.
