Bethesda Reveals Fallout 76 BETA Download Size; Won’t be Available for Pre-load
Bethesda has revealed the Fallout 76 beta download size and has confirmed that it won’t be available for pre-load.
We already covered that Fallout 76’s BETA will include the entire game, and that progress made in the B.E.T.A. will carry over to the full game. Through the game’s updated FAQ page, publisher Bethesda has now also revealed the BETA’s download size – approximately 45GB.
Bethesda also confirmed that the BETA won’t be available for pre-loading, but this might change prior to the launch of the B.E.T.A. next month.
“The B.E.T.A. will be approximately 45GB in size”, the updated FAQ on the Fallout website reads. “Currently the B.E.T.A. will not be available for pre-load.”
The Fallout 76 The B.E.T.A. launches first on Xbox One on Tuesday, October 23, and on PlayStation 4 and PC on October 30. The B.E.T.A. can only be accessed by players who pre-ordered Fallout 76 from participating retailers.
The online prequel was officially announced back in June of this year.

“We’ve been asked forever to bring multiplayer to one of our worlds,” said Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios. “And once we had this idea, we knew it was perfect for Fallout. It’s great to finally share this game and this world with everyone.”
