The first Fallout 76 beta session went up yesterday for a brief four-hour stress take a look at, however some last-minute woes left a number of gamers unable to play it. To make up for these points, Bethesda have introduced that they’ll be holding an extended Fallout 76 beta tomorrow, Thursday November 1.
The second beta session will now run 4 hours longer than beforehand introduced, so Fallout 76 will now be on-line to play for 9 hours altogether. It shall be accessible tomorrow from 11:00 PT / 14:00 ET / 18:00 GMT to 20:00 PT / 23:00 ET / 03:00 GMT (Friday morning, November 2).
Last evening’s first Fallout 76 beta stress test didn’t run in any respect easily for PC gamers. Despite the Bethesda.web Launcher permitting for a preload earlier on within the week – which many customers took benefit of – simply hours earlier than the beta session went reside, the launcher was hit by a bug that deleted your complete 48Gb preload. Bethesda tried to warn people, however any unaware gamers who clicked any a part of the launcher have been compelled to re-download your complete Fallout 76 beta once more. Whoops.
For many gamers, together with ourselves, that meant lacking out on an enormous chunk of the primary Fallout 76 beta session – which was already quite unreasonable for UK gamers within the first place, because it ran from 11pm to 3am GMT. Bethesda’s only solution for users was, “if you see a progress bar, please allow the download to complete,” which wasn’t massively useful.
Still, the writer are conscious that they screwed up, and are providing the prolonged beta session tomorrow with a purpose to “make good” with gamers.
We know some customers have been compelled to redownload the #Fallout76 B.E.T.A. and never everybody will have the ability to benefit from the game tonight. To make good, we’ll be extending the B.E.T.A. for everybody on Thursday, November 1, 2pm to 11pm ET.
Thanks to your endurance. #ExtendtheBeta

There are a further two beta sessions deliberate for this weekend, November three and November 4, which can all begin slightly sooner than Monday’s session. Fallout 76 itself will launch on November 14. Hopefully any issues with the Bethesda.web Launcher shall be sorted out by then, and it received’t randomly delete the game once more.
