Fallout 76 developer Bethesda has posted a lengthy message to fans on Twitter, warning that folk should expect some teething issues with the online RPG ahead of the beta launch later today.
To be fair, this is to be expected. Most big games have a few issues on release, and a game of Fallout 76's size is no exception, especially as it's an online game. Speaking of which, Bethesda admitted in the message that it was a 'very scary' decision to take the post-apocalyptic franchise into the online space for the first time.
'Some we're aware of, such as areas where performance needs to improve with lots of players,' said the developer. 'Others, we surely don't. We need your help finding them, and advice on what's important to fix. We'll address all of it, now and after launch.'
Perhaps fittingly, the early access initiative for Fallout 76 is called the Break-it Early Test Application, aka B.E.T.A. See what they did there?!
Fallout 76 will launch for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on November 14. The game's microtransactions will be used to purchase cosmetic items only, so you can't shell out for gameplay-affecting boosts.
