Pete Hines later said that there might be a smaller beta before the full beta goes live, and for this period players will be selected randomly from the larger pool of players selected for the full beta. Hines also took took Twitter to confirm that “everyone” will get into the game’s full beta, from “start to finish,” and that the “random selection” is only for anything the developer decides to do prior to the full beta launch.


Fallout 76 is set for launch on November 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
