Fallout 76 Beta Extended Due To Server Issues
The Break-it-Early-Test-Application (B.E.T.A.) for Bethesda’s Fallout 76 officially kicked off recently, and all seemed fine and well within the West Virginian Wasteland. While it is restricted to those who have pre-ordered the title, and there are only certain times it can be accessed, players have seemingly been happy to try out the online-only adventure.
That said, PC gamers were recently given the opportunity to enjoy the experience, but not before a few issues. A bug with Bethesda’s launcher deleted the entire game for many who pre-loaded it, forcing them to re-download the rather large file. Unfortunately, a decent amount of people discovered this just as the block of time for all platforms was beginning, making them miss part of the beta that would have otherwise been spent exploring Fallout 76.
We know some users have been forced to redownload the #Fallout76 B.E.T.A. and not everyone will be able to enjoy the game tonight. To make good, we’ll be extending the B.E.T.A. for everyone on Thursday, November 1, 2pm to 11pm ET.
Thanks for your patience. #ExtendtheBeta

The beta on Thursday, November 1st was originally scheduled to end at 7pm ET. Due to the server issues, however, Bethesda has decided to extend that by four hours, now lasting until 11pm ET. This should give players more than enough time to venture off into the wasteland.
Luckily, those who haven’t pre-ordered Fallout 76 only have two weeks until the game finally arrives on November 14th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Sadly, Nintendo Switch gamers won’t be seeing a port to their preferred platform.
