Those accessing Bethesda's Fallout 76 may encounter an unexpected error today, with players reporting an issue impacting the title. Those attempting to log into the game, a multiplayer-only experience based on the hit role-playing series, report an error message when logging into the game. The error, "Failed to download config from Title Storage. [4:10:1]," appears to relate to widespread connectivity issues impacting the title.

"We are currently investigating login issues that Fallout 76 players are experiencing on all platforms," the publisher stated via its Bethesda Support Twitter account. The company points players toward its official website for the latest on Fallout 76 server status. The error message impacts all platforms, including Xbox, PlayStation, and PC versions of the game.

With Fallout 76 heavily reliant on online connectivity, as a shared-world multiplayer experience, there's currently no way to access the title during the outage. With no formal workaround known at this time, we're left waiting on a fix on Bethesda's behalf. We'll update this report with additional information on the outage, as available.
