Fallout 76 is easily one of the most anticipated game releases of the fall, and while plenty of fans will be looking forward to enjoying all the game will have to offer come November, according to Bethesda, the game’s upcoming “B.E.T.A.” period will show fans virtually everything that can be experienced in Fallout 76 this fall.

New updates have appeared on the official FAQ page for Fallout 76 from Bethesda Game Studios that gave a bit more insight into what to expect from the game’s “B.E.T.A.”, which is expected to begin sometime in October.

Specifically, the FAQ page revealed that Bethesda’s plans are that the B.E.T.A. will give players access to “the full game,” and all player progress earned during the course of playing the B.E.T.A. will be carried over from there into the final game’s release in November.

Given that Fallout 76 is introducing a more online-focused structure to the Fallout series, it’s encouraging that players in the B.E.T.A. will have the chance to experience what (essentially) will be the full content of the game, other than a presumed time limit for when the B.E.T.A. will take place.

Fallout 76 will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 14th, 2018. If you have yet to pick up a copy of the game, you can pre-order it on Amazon ahead of its release this fall.
