Fallout 76 is now less than a month away from being released and players will get a chance to try the game before the end of October.
Bethesda has announced that a beta version of the game will be available towards the end of this month and give players a chance to try the new gameplay and give feedback on any issues.
It will be the ninth game in the Fallout series but the first time that Bethesda Games Studios has produced an online multiplayer.
Here is everything you need to know about when the game will be released and how you can access the beta.
When is the Fallout 76 release date?
Fallout 76 will be released worldwide on Wednesday 14 November 2018.
Fans of the game can get access to a beta version of the game if they pre-order their copy.
How to pre-order Fallout 76
Fallout 76 is available to pre-order directly from the Bethesda website for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
When is the beta release date?
The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A (Break-It Early Test Application) is set to be released on Tuesday 23 October for Xbox One players, which will be followed by PC and PS4 on Tuesday 30 October.
The servers wont be running 24/7 during the beta as Bethesda is aiming to get as many people as possible to play it at the same time so they can test the systems.
Servers are set to be active for between four and eight hours each day which will give them a chance to address any issues before the games full release.
Players can access the beta either by searching for it on the Xbox Store or PlayStation store, or through the Bethesda Launcher if you are playing on PC (PC players will need to register a Bethesda account to access the beta).
What are the different version you can buy?
This version just contains the base game but if you pre-order it then you will get access to the beta which releases later this month.
This will contain various bonus -in-game items:
- Tricentennial Power Armor Customization for the T-51, T-45, T-60, and X-01 Power Armors

Players who pre-order this version of the game will also be able to access the beta.
