Fallout 76 Beta Will Come to Xbox One First

Xbox One owners will be the first to emerge from the vault.

Just as Vault 76’s residents will emerge from Fallout 76’s titular vault before any other vault’s dwellers, Xbox One owners will be the first to play Bethesda Softworks’ latest post-apocalyptic RPG.

Bethesda has revealed through an FAQ that Fallout 76’s beta will have a timed exclusive release on Xbox One before later heading to PlayStation 4 and PC. Fallout 76’s beta doesn’t yet have a release date for any of the three platforms, but Bethesda noted that exact timing will eventually be announced through its Fallout social media channels.

There’s only one way for gamers to get into the beta, and that’s by preordering Fallout 76 ahead of its November 14 release. For help deciding which version to preorder, visit IGN’s Fallout 76 preorder guide.

As was revealed during E3 2018, Fallout 76 is the series’ first to be entirely online, which has forced Bethesda to abandon several Fallout staples.

While E3 attendees weren’t able to experience what the in-game experience of awakening and emerging from Vault 76 will be like, Bethesda did offer them a real-world facsimile of “Reclamation Day.”
