Fallout 76 beta begins first on Xbox One

Timed exclusives never change.

Fallout 76 will get a beta - and it begins first on Xbox One.

In a recently updated FAQ, Bethesda said the beta for Xbox One will begin first, followed by other platforms (PlayStation 4 and PC via Bethesda.net).

Bethesda has yet to say when the Fallout 76 beta will kick off, but we do know you have to pre-order the game to get in. Bethesda said that's the only way to get access to the beta.
