Fallout 76 PC Beta Bug Wipes Out the Entire Beta

Fallout 76’s PC Beta Isn’t Off to a Great Start

Fallout 76’s beta on PC began on Tuesday but unfortunately several users ran into a major problem: clicking on the launch client for the beta caused the entire beta file to be deleted.

While the folks at PC Gamer reported that this issue was eventually resolved for them, the most recent update from the official Fallout Twitter account reads as follows: “The investigation to the issue with PC B.E.T.A. downloads is still ongoing. We appreciate your patience while we continue to look into it.”

The account also tweeted some advice for PC users on how to deal with this issue while the developers work towards fixing it: “If you see a progress bar, please allow the download to complete.”

As consolation for this less-than-ideal start to the beta, Bethesda Game Studios announced on Tuesday that they’re extending the beta for players on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

“We know some users have been forced to redownload the B.E.T.A. and not everyone will be able to enjoy the game tonight,” the developer tweeted. “To make good, we’ll be extending the B.E.T.A. for everyone on Thursday, November 1, 2pm to 11pm ET. Thanks for your patience.”
