The pre-beta for Fallout 76’s Nuclear Winter mode is going so well that Bethesda has announced it is extending it indefinitely.
First announced during Bethesda’s E3 2019 conference, Nuclear Winter is having Fallout put their own spin on the worn-out battle royale genre.
In Nuclear Winter, 52 players from Vault 51 are separated by the ZAX computer system into four squads. These squads must fight it out to be the last standing, while a ring of fire closes in around them, the exact same formula we’ve seen over and over again.
In an official blog post, Bethesda announced it’s been “blown away by the reactions and responses we’ve been seeing all week to Nuclear Winter. It has been so amazing to read all your experiences and see everything you’ve been sharing.” As a result, the pre-beta of the game, which was originally only supposed to run for a week, “will remain on and continue to receive updates, so keep sharing your feedback.”
