The month of October will bring the release of the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break-It Early Test Application), and fans are extremely excited to get their hands on the newest Bethesda project. The Fallout and Elder Scrolls developer released their FAQs regarding the game on their website, and it came with some interesting information. Among that, the reveal that the Beta would actually include the full game was shared.
The question asked was, “Is the B.E.T.A. going to be the full game and will my progress going to be carried over to launch?” The official response was, “Our current plan for the B.E.T.A. is it will be the full game and all your progress is saved for launch.”
This is actually really surprising, but it seems like developers are taking this route with their games when releasing betas lately. But hey, as consumers there’s really nothing for us to complain about. It’s good to know the progress you make in a beta will still be used in the final product.
The developer is taking a risk with this title, what with it being completely online and not exactly having a traditional singleplayer mode, but with luck, this risk will pay off for them in the long run.
Fallout 76 is scheduled to release on November 14th, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
