Those with poor impulse control who still pre-order games will now be getting access to Fallout 76's beta, assuming the entire 47GB pre-loaded download did not self destruct on them. Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN gave it a twirl, though with only a few people able to access the game it doesn't really represent what the final launch will look like. Even so, expect to find yourself in a small crowd of people all performing the same initial tasks to solve the initial tasks, some with rather interesting handles. On the plus side, the game itself looks quite pretty from the screenshots.
"That sea of autumnal trees and distant storm clouds are lovely. Having winced at the wonky footage of the Xbox One beta last week I’m genuinely surprised at how pretty West Virginia is. Well, the bits of it that aren’t CocktimusPrime."
