Fallout 76 PC and PS4 Beta Times Announced, Xbox One Owners Get Second Crack This Weekend
We finally know when PC and PS4 players can get a jump start on their Fallout 76 adventure. Xbox One owners got to try out the Fallout 76 beta, which includes the full game, this past Tuesday, and will get another chance this weekend, but PC and PS4 owners will have to wait until next Tuesday (October 30). Here are the precise times PC and PS4 players will get to play:
- Tuesday, October 3 from 7 to 11pm ET
- Thursday, November 1 from 2 to 7pm ET
- Saturday, November 3 from 5 to 9pm ET
- Sunday, November 4 from 2 to 9 p.m. ET
Of course, Xbox One players will also get to join in during the above times. They’ll also get to play this weekend, during the following times.
- Saturday, October 27 from 5 to 7pm ET
- Sunday, October 28 from 5 to 8pm ET
As you can see, the later PC and PS4-inclusive test periods are longer than the 2-to-3-hour Xbox One exclusive ones, running between 4 and 7 hours. All told, Xbox One owners will be able to get in 29 hours of Fallout 76 playtime before launch, while PC and PS4 owners will only get 20 hours. That’s a fairly solid amount of playtime, although, considering the game has over 150 hours of side content, you’ll still only be scratching the surface.
