We hope your journey in Fallout 76 is as fun and as rewarding as it was for us to build it. Players have been asking questions such as how to save the game and how to interact with other players, so we've created this guide in a bid to answer any and all of your questions. We've just logged into servers from the USA west coast and the United Kingdom, and we're seeing reports from players around the globe that they've been able to start playing as well.
This news shouldn't come as too much of a surprise to Fallout 76 fans, for after all, Bethesda has previously stated that it intends to support the game "forever" with post-launch content. PC users have reported that upon opening the Bethesda games launcher, Fallout 76 wasn't accessible. With a final install size of 51 gigabytes, only 0.0048% of the game is actually on the disc you buy.
Fallout 76 is not releasing on Steam, at least for now, so like the beta it'll only be playable via Bethesda's own launcher.
If you're reading this right now then that means Fallout 76 is available for pre-load on every platform.
As mentioned above, the Fallout 76 release date has been set for Wednesday, November 14.
We recently put together our thoughts in our Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. impressions piece, and we praised the game's world design while finding some frustration in its multiplayer implementation.
Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition This one comes with bonus downloadable items, and is the default option on Bethesda's site. You might still want to hold off on playing until it gets a couple of patches, but usually it takes a month or two for major releases to get discounted this far.
