Fallout 76, the latest Bethesda Game Studios creation, enters beta tomorrow for the Xbox One.
The beta will run in specific test phases, expected to be between 4-8 hour windows in which the game will be live. The aim is to stress test the game by maximising the number of players online at the same time.
Start times for the first test phase have been announced (Xbox One only):
UK: 12 midnight - 4am (BST), Wednesday 24th October
Europe: 1am - 5am (CEST), Wednesday 24th October
East Coast US: 7pm - 11pm (ET), Tuesday 23rd October
West Coast US: 4pm - 8pm (PDT), Tuesday 23rd October
The start times for UK and Europe are not ideal, but hopefully some future test phases will be more focused on European time zones.
Beta for the PC and PS4 versions of the game will start next week (October 30th).
