Upcoming action, role playing game Fallout 76 is getting closer to its release and the developers have decided to announce the beta dates alongside important details regarding the game.
The beta is scheduled for 23rd October on Xbox One and 30th October on PS4 and PC. Bethesda announced game’s beta back in June during E3 presentation and the studio confirms that those who pre-ordered the online survival game are eligible to access the upcoming beta. If you have already pre-ordered the game then you were provided with a code, which should be redeemed from the website.
Bethesda and Microsoft entered into an agreement, which is the reason why beta starts one week early on Xbox One, where the gamers of other platforms will have to one for atleast one week to get the access. Checkout the new trailer right below;
A few months ago, Bethesda showed interest for adding the cross-platform play support in the upcoming Fallout 76 and also stated that the feature would be implemented if Sony amends its rules regarding the support for the feature against other gaming consoles such as Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, but yesterday, Sony finally agreed to add support for cross-play with all the platforms, with Fortnite being the first game.
Soon after Sony’s announcement, vice president of Marketing at Bethesda Softworks Pete Hines announced that they do not have any plans for the cross-play at the moment. The game will not support cross-play at launch and they are currently focusing on the upcoming beta.
Folks, chill. I work with a lot of devs and games for whom this is important going forward.
Fallout 76 does not support crossplay, for a number of reasons. I have no idea if it ever will. But I assure you it is not on our radar right now as we focus on B.E.T.A. and Launch.
