Now Playing: Is Pre-Ordering Games A Good Idea? - Steam Punks

The beta for Bethesda's much-anticipated Fallout 76 begins in October, but we still don't know all that much about when in October it'll launch, what it will contain, and how long it will run for. It sounds like more details are coming about the beta soon.

Responding to a fan's question about the Fallout 76 beta length, Bethesda marketing boss Pete Hines said on Twitter, "We'll have more information for you on that soon. Hopefully this week."

Pre-ordering Fallout 76 is the only way to play the beta. The beta starts in October, and thanks to a deal with Microsoft, it starts on Xbox One, followed by PlayStation 4 and PC.

Intriguingly, the Fallout 76 beta website states that the beta will contain the "full game." This is noteworthy considering betas often feature only a slice of a final product. Another piece of good news is that all of your progress in the Fallout 76 beta will carry forward.

Fallout 76 launches in full on November 14 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. On PC, the game will only be available through Bethesda's own launcher, not Steam.
