The buzz for Fallout 76 has been as infectious as its rendition of “Country Roads.” At this year’s E3, director Todd Howard said that there would be a beta before the game’s release on Nov. 14.

Bethesda Game Studios announced on its community forum that the beta for Fallout 76 will start in October. Beta testers will be randomly selected and the pool will start out small, but grow over time before the game’s official release.

In order to enter the pool of beta testers, you must pre-order Fallout 76 and then locate the redemption code on the pre-order receipt or confirmation email. From there, go to Bethesda’s official site and log in or create a new account to enter the code. The full FAQ and instructions can be found on Bethesda’s Fallout site.

The full version of Fallout 76 will be available on Nov. 14, 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more information, check out everything we know about Fallout 76.
