Bethesda has update the FAQ for Fallout 76’s upcoming acronym-heavy B.E.T.A., which stands for Break it Early Test Application, which is really playing fast and loose with acronym rules.
The FAQ updated with the question “Is the B.E.T.A. going to be the full game and will my progress carry over to launch?”
The answer being “Our current plan for the B.E.T.A. is it will be the full game and all your progress is saved for launch. We hope you join us!”
That means you will be downloading the entire game for the beta, but you’ll also get access to the entire game with it. Any progress you make in the beta will carry over, so when the full game comes out, you can just pick up from where you left off. Bethesda hasn’t specified the dates for the beta besides just coming this Fall, but the Xbox One will get it first.
Fallout 76 releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 14.
