When Does Beta Start?

 

 The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break-it Early Test Application) will begin in October and Bethesda will be "selecting people who have pre-ordered the game from a participating retailer."

Announced by community administrator Jurassica on Bethesda's Fallout 76 general discussion forum, she continued to say "we'll start small and grow over time as we prepare for launch."

Jurassica also confirmed that "During the Fallout 76 panel at QuakeCon, we'll be answering some of your questions."

What will happen when the B.E.T.A. is going to start?

 From the confirmation screen when you redeem your B.E.T.A. redemption code: "...further instructions will be sent to your Bethesda.net account email shortly before the B.E.T.A. begins." 

How do I get a B.E.T.A. redemption code?

 Pre-order any edition of the game from any qualifying retailer. Register the redemption code you receive at Here. When the beta is going to begin, you will receive either an access code or further instructions. 

What if I ordered through Bethesda.net, Xbox store or PlayStation store?

 Then you don't need to receive a redemption code. You are automatically registered for the beta, and when the beta is going to begin, you will receive further instructions. 

I didn't get my B.E.T.A. redemption code when I pre-ordered?

 Retailers such as Amazon are now emailing out codes. Be patient, not all retailers have started issuing the codes yet. Some retailers have time periods, for example, Amazon currently says they'll send your code within 2 days after you order. 

What's the difference between a "redemption" code and an "access" code?

 The "redemption" code is what you get from the retailer in order to register for the beta. The "access" code (or "further instructions") are what Bethesda will email to you when the beta is actually going to start.
