Fallout 76 Release Date, Beta, US Pre-Order Guide

The apocalypse approaches, vault dwellers. Fallout 76 is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 14, with a beta test kicking off in October. The earliest game in the series’ timeline, Fallout 76 puts you in the shoes of a person residing in Vault 76. Base-building returns from Fallout 4, and players can hunt down items that will allow them to fire nuclear missiles at areas of the map. The game is said to be four times bigger than its predecessor—and here’s a shocker—it’s online.

Every other person you see in the game is controlled by a real person—NPCs need not apply. For a complete roundup of the facts, check out Everything We Know About Fallout 76.
