Xbox One users will get the first crack at the beta which will then be followed by PS4 and PC. The beta is available to those who pre-order the game but it Xbox One users will get an additional chance at trying the game out.

According to Bethesda’s FAQ, the Fallout 76 Stress Test is a timed stress test that will run the course of four hours. The test begins today, October 13 at 5 p.m.

If you pre-ordered Fallout 76 digitally on Xbox One:

  • Log into your Xbox One with the account you used to pre-order
  • Download the Xbox Insider Hub App from the Store
  • Launch the Xbox Insider Hub and look for “Fallout 76 Stress Test” under the Insider Content tab. If you see it, you can participate!
  • Click “Join”, accept the terms of use, and you’ll be brought to the Store to install the game.

If you pre-ordered the physical version of Fallout 76 on Xbox One:

  • Log in to account to see if you received a token to redeem on your Xbox.
  • If you are selected for the Stress Test, you will be able to retrieve your Xbox One code from the Transaction History section of the account menu.
  • Once you have a code, use it to download Fallout 76 from the Xbox Store on your Xbox One. Note: Those with physical pre-orders do not need the Xbox Insiders app to be able to download Fallout 76 from the Xbox Store.

The FAQ says this will be the full game but it is not the same version that will be used for the beta or the official launch.
