Fallout 76 Stress Test Open to Xbox Insiders with Pre-Order

Fallout 76

Hello Xbox Insiders,

If you have pre-ordered Fallout 76 and are in North America, Bethesda Game Studios and the Xbox Insider Program invite you to participate in the first Fallout 76 Stress Test this Saturday, October 13th! This Stress Test is different than the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. taking place later this month. Unlike the B.E.T.A., the Fallout 76 Stress Test will be under NDA (read: confidential) and your progress during the Stress Test will not be saved. However, you get to play the game early and help us stress test in preparation for the B.E.T.A., so keep reading to learn how to participate!

A note from Bethesda: This is a work-in-progress build so expect performance, stability and graphics issues. If the servers go down, that’s a good thing! Keep trying! We appreciate your patience and help with our stress test!
