Fallout 76 beta extended after bug

  • Fallout 76's Pip Boy 2000 Mk VI as featured in-game

Fallout 76's beta kicked off on PS4 and PC this week, letting those who game on these platforms dive into Bethesda's post-apocalyptic world, something which Xbox One owners already had the opportunity to do last week. While there were some concerns from the community about the times of tests, altogether things have gone rather smoothly.

Featured above, you can view my roughly three hours of completely blind playing of the game's beta. The Fallout 76 Beta is due to end on 4th November at 9pm ET, so get in on it while you can.

Unlocking the frame-rate in Fallout 76 will increase your speed within the game.

An issue with the Bethesda launcher had forced some users to redownload the entire game - causing players with slower internet connections to miss out on the brief beta window.


Fallout 76 also seems to support only 16: 9 monitors.

The default Field-of-Vision in the game is set to 80, the same as in Fallout 4. Doing this will open a link that allows you to purchase the game digitally. However, various HUD/UI elements are tied to the default FOV and would be located outside the screen.

On the game's subReddit, users have been posting videos of the exploit in action. Unlocked the framerate is possible but this will result in an unnatural game speed as well. Removed the frame limiter in the ini because the game was hitching and running bad. Speaking to GameSpot, Bethesda's top dog, Pete Hines explains that the in-game economy in "Fallout 76" is not pay-to-win. With the game only two weeks away from launch, though, such a serious bug is likely to raise eyebrows among the company's users.
