Bethesda has announced the Fallout 76 beta sessions and they're a little rough on UK players.
As the #Fallout76 B.E.T.A. becomes available for everyone on Oct. 30, we wanted to look ahead to next week's anticipated sessions.— Bethesda Game Studios (@BethesdaStudios) October 26, 2018
Times are subject to change with issues that may arise, but we're hopeful this schedule will stay. Thank you for all your support! pic.twitter.com/9fRb5Vx5m7
The sessions revolve around Eastern Time in the United States, which is currently five hours behind UK time. This makes sense when you consider Bethesda is based in Maryland, but it makes for late evening sessions in the UK.
The next Fallout 76 beta session is tonight, 27th October, and runs from 10pm to midnight in the UK on Xbox only.
After that, we've got our most palatable session in the UK, which is set for tomorrow, 28th October, from 4pm to 6pm. Again, this is Xbox only.
The Fallout 76 beta opens up to PC and PlayStation 4 on 30th October, but that session is pretty brutal - it runs from 11pm to 3am in the UK.
On 1st November the Fallout 76 beta session runs from 6pm to 11pm in the UK, which isn't too bad.
3rd November, it's 9pm to 1am in the UK.
And finally, on 4th November, it's 7pm to 2am in the UK.
While these sessions are hard on UK players, Bethesda plans to transfer progress made in them over the the full game, which is set to launch 14th November 2018. For more, check out Edwin's hands-on preview.
