Fallout 76: How to Participate in the Exclusive Stress Test

Fallout 76 will not support mods until December 2019, will only be available on private servers

Fallout 76 might not get mod support before November 2019

The release of Fallout 76 is nearly upon us which means it is nearly time for the beta across Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It has a strict requirement and the stress test is under NDA, so don't expect to hear about it.

Fallout 76 launches November 14, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, and PC. Even then, it's not guaranteed you'll get into the trial as only a limited number of players will be selected.

Unlike the previous entries in the franchise, Bethesda has focused Fallout 76 to be completely online and a multiplayer adventure with your friends or random people you meet in the world (not that you'll meet hundreds).

For players who meet the two requirements, all they need to do is log-in to the Xbox Insider Portal this weekend to see if they've been selected by Bethesda to stress test the servers. "Bethesda has been a terrific partner since day one". Content additions to Fallout 76 would evolve and depend on what the community has to say, meaning the evolution of the title could be quite easily channelled through the community.

Trump calls Mattis sort of a Democrat and says he may leave
Last week, his ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley , announced her resignation, effective at the end of the year. One of those people drawing Trump's ire could be Mattis. "I have a very good relationship with [Mattis]", Trump said.

The Fallout 76 Stress Test requires an Xbox Live Gold membership and it will only be available in North America in English only.

Once the Stress Test ends it's onto the beta.

With Bethesda now dipping its toes into the shared world, games-as-a-service (GaaS) genre with Fallout 76, some might be wondering just how big this version of the Wasteland set in West Virginia is.
