A Fallout 76 bug caused some PC users to erase the entire game and asked Bethesda to expand beta as a make-good. After the warning users had not clicked any buttons on the client, it told them they could let the beta game file be downloaded again. The company later took responsibility for the error and announced the expansion.
Eurogamer reports that the error only affected PC users, but the affected people had to download the entire 50GB beta file. This can lead to long latency and ISP data restrictions, so the company was forced to issue mega culpa. It will now run on November 2nd from kl. 11 to 8 PM PT. Tweets notes This extension is for everyone, so users on PS4 and Xbox One get a little extra benefit without being affected by the error.
We know that some users have been forced to download # Fallout76 ] BETA and not everyone will be able to enjoy the game tonight. To do well, we will expand B.E.T.A. for everyone on Thursday, November 1st, from 2pm to 11pm ET.
Thank you for your patience. #ExtendtheBeta
