Although the exact launch date of the Fallout 76 beta is still a mystery, we now know it will be coming to Xbox One first. On the Fallout FAQ page, the launch date for 76's beta is listed as unknown. Players are asked to stay tuned to Fallout's social accounts before being left with one final note: "the B.E.T.A. for Xbox One will begin first, followed by other platforms." Fallout 76 is scheduled to release November 14.

The beta is still scheduled to release on both PS4 and PC, but players on those two platforms will have to wait a little bit longer to play the game. Bethesda has supplied no clues as to how much earlier Xbox One players will get the beta, nor whether the Xbox One beta will end early or go on for as long as the betas on PS4 and PC.

Fallout 76 takes place centuries before Fallout 4, near the start of the Fallout timeline. This title brings a lot of new mechanics to the franchise, including nuclear missile strikes, and will be a multiplayer-focused, always online game instead of a single-player shooter. In order to balance these mechanics, Bethesda has implemented new systems to stop trolls from breaking the game.

The only way to play the Fallout 76 beta is by pre-ordering the game. Check out our handy-dandy pre-order guide so you can nab the edition that's best for you.
