Fallout 76 is coming out soon and the beta version is currently available for download on XBOX one. If you’re a PS4 and PC user, don’t worry as the beta is expected to be released on October 30, 2018.
Take note that the game is not an open beta, you’ll have to pre-order the game in order to get a code that allows you to download the beta version.
The Fallout 76 Beta’s servers will not be running 24/7. Instead, they’ll be only online during targeted timeframes. This is to ensure that multiple players will be able to access the game worldwide. More information with regards to the Beta release can be found at Bethesda’s website.
It also looks like Fallout 76 will have a “Battle Royale” type of game mode. Yes, another battle royale game. If you want to try out the new game mode, all you need to do is open your RobCo-branded Pipboy and listen to the Hunter/Hunted radio station.
Players will attempt to hunt down a survivor while eluding another for fun and prizes! Players will be free to seek and defeat your target in one hour – within a large area. Just like any other Battle Royale games out there, the play area size will get smaller; which will force you to battle it out within a smaller vicinity.
While exploring the map, players will encounter other explorers and some of them may be hostile. If you’ve been taken down by another player, you’ll be given two respawn options.
- Seek Revenge: Continues PvP and hostility, and automatically respawns you in the general vicinity of your killer, allowing you to hunt them down and bring them to justice. If you successfully take Revenge, you’ll also earn some bonus Caps for your efforts.
- Respawn: Ends PvP and hostility between you and all other players as soon as you choose a respawn location.
Should you find yourself or any other players killed, players will drop all your junk onto the ground in a tidy paper bag. These items can then be taken by anyone who happens across your paper bag before you return to claim it.
