If you have pre-ordered Fallout 76, you can start downloading it to be ready for release next week. Bethesda gave words that the installation is ready to go along with instructions on what to do with the beta file you can still reload.
According to a series of tweets the preload is available on Xbox One and is coming soon for PlayStation 4 and PC. If you have the console versions of the beta installed, you can delete them and your progress will still be transferred to the entire game. If you have beta on PC, you will receive a small update that will prepare your game file for launch.
Beta came in several waves, and Bethesda has already outlined some corrections and answers to the bites of feedback it received. The company plans to make this a live game and kicked the beta with an open letter and warns that it will be filled with bugs – radioactive and otherwise. The team plans to work on improving it in the long run, keeping the servers running "forever."
Although this is Fallouts first priority to an online, connected world, it can be played in the same way as one of the series single-player adventures. Of course there are disadvantages to the kind of isolated landscape for those who want to make it a social experience. A big remaining question that will not be answered before launch is how its cosmetic DLC will work, given that we have seen some items for sale, but have no idea how the in-game currency translates into real dollars.
Fallout 76 will be on November 14th. Take a look at our pre-guide for more information.
