Fallout 76 has released early, and is now available to play out of B.E.T.A. ahead of it's official launch in 6 hours time (as of the time of this article).
The game was due to release on November 14th on Xbox One, PS4 and Windows, but Bethesda have decided to open the flood gates a little early, perhaps as a strategy to prevent overwhelming server load.
Usually games are locked down until midnight of the day of release, although often they can be downloaded before the actual release date / time so they're available to play immediately.
We've tested that the PC version is now available early, with reports coming in to us of the story being the same across Playstation and Xbox platforms.
Good news for B.E.T.A. players, by the way, your characters and progress are kept over to the final release, although you can start a new character if you wish.
Stay tuned to GameFront for further news as it happens.
