Fallout 76 will be launching a trial for their Wastelanders update through a private test server. It will allow “a few hundred players” to play for a limited time on PC. Bethesda made the announcement through Video Game Chronicles.
The developers will begin the testing session in January. It’ll let players “try out the new content, provide your feedback, and report the issues you experience”. This will help the developers fix any bugs prior to its launch.
In an announcement post, they confirm the trial is PC only.
They added: “While this means that not everyone who opts-in will be selected, we wanted to ensure that as many of our most active and experienced community members as possible have the chance to opt in for consideration,”
Gamers have been given until 6.00 pm ET on January 14 to sign up for the private test servers. Furthermore, players will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement. This ensures gamers will not be able “to share, stream, record, or discuss any information from this experience.”
However, any progress achieved in the private test will not carry over into the live game. Fallout 76 is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
