Updated November 14, 2018: Bethesda claims that it has fixed the disconnects, but there are still a lot of gamers reporting the problem. The team advises that you try opening the game again if you're having trouble.
Fallout 76 is a shared-world multiplayer survival game for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The title marks an all-new direction for Bethesda's establishing post-apocalyptic role-playing series, allowing groups of survivors to explore, build settlements, and uncover secrets of West Virginia. It's a multiplayer experience which requires you to work together and form alliances.
Bethesda has a reputation of creating unbelievably great stories, but their technical prowess is abysmal to say the least. Fallout 76 is the latest title to suffer from a host of issues at launch. Aside from the horrendous performance problems, there are server problems that need to be addressed. Many gamers are reporting that they keep on getting disconnected from the game. It's unclear if this is due to a bug or the fact that a lot of people are trying to access the servers at the same time.
With servers available worldwide, we’re looking into disconnect issues that are currently happening.With servers available worldwide, we’re looking into disconnect issues that are currently happening.— Fallout (@Fallout) November 14, 2018November 14, 2018
Bethesda is looking into this and should update players with a solution soon. It seems that this is an issue with the Fallout 76 servers and the publisher needs to fix it on its end. We'll keep you posted as soon as we have a solution or the company provides one.
If you don't mind the bugs, Fallout 76 is quite an enjoyable experience. Every other human you meet is another player, however, some are quite aggressive. The game is currently available for $59.99 for the standard edition, and $79.99 for the special edition.

Nice, nothing like an online only game that you are playing in single player mode that kicks you out of the game due to losing connectivity to an online server. What a great concept.
