Fallout 76 is now available early across the globe

Bethesda's fresh multiplayer-take on its Fallout role-playing series is just around the corner, with a scheduled November 14 launch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs. However, you might not have to wait long, with servers live across the globe prior to the official street date.

Although digital preorders for games are traditionally locked down until midnight in your region, Fallout 76 is already playable early in most regions. We've verified this with multiple digital Xbox One copies in the U.S. and UK, while widespread reports of PS4 and PC gamers are circulating online. It's unclear why the game is available worldwide, but whether intentional or not, there's no reason to complain.

For those who played Fallout 76's BETA test, your character automatically transfers to the final release. Otherwise, new players can get started now and emerge from Vault 76.

Fallout 76 can be purchased for $59.99 (opens in new tab), with a formal release set for November 14.

  • Damn, my digital xbox copy is still locked.
  • Are they allocating servers based on real world geography, so we can avoid the problems that Pubg is having with lag?
