Bethesda is holding a special, pre-BETA stress test for the game this weekend. The catch? It's only happening with certain Xbox One pre-order members that are part of the Xbox Insider program.
To qualify for the program, you have to have an Xbox One, have pre-ordered the game and registered that with the Xbox One, be an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, and be a member of the Xbox Insider program. This is also only available for North America members. While required, these qualifications do not guarantee access to the stress test.
Those who are accepted to take part will gain access to the test, which begins on Saturday, October 13. According to an FAQ by Bethesda, this test will be the full game, but will not be the same version that will be used in the BETA. Save data will NOT be saved from the event. Participants will also be part of an NDA.
"If you pre-ordered the physical version of Fallout 76 on Xbox One, log in to Bethesda.net account to see if you received a token to redeem on your Xbox. If you are selected for the Stress Test, you will be able to retrieve your Xbox One code from the Transaction History section of the Bethesda.net account menu. Once you have a code, use it to download Fallout 76 from the Xbox Store on your Xbox One."
PC and PS4 pre-orders will not be a part of the stress test and will have to wait for the formal BETA launch on October 30. For more information, visit the stress test FAQ page.
Fallout 76 will be releasing on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 14 for $59.99.
