It seems that Bethesda wants to warn the fans about something they likely expected based on prior experience, as they have uploaded a letter to Twitter that warns of the "spectacular" issues with the game in terms of bugs and glitches.
The beta for Fallout 76 (also known as the B.E.T.A.) will be available soon for PS4 and PC and fans can't wait to experience their first online Fallout game, with all of the positives and negatives that it will bring.
The letter offers some exciting glimpses into the chaotic nature of Fallout 76, which is something that fans have been craving from an online Fallout experience. This is just a preface to the warning of all of the bugs and glitches that have been discovered so far, with the developers outright asking the players to help them be found and dealt with.
It's refreshing for Bethesda to be so upfront about the bugs that will be present in one of their games at launch, as that has been the case for all of their major titles since the days of Morrowind.
There are still plenty of fans who are salty at the state of Fallout: New Vegas at release, even though Bethesda only published the game without being the developer. The fact that they released such an unpolished game to the public rubbed a lot of fans the wrong way, which was made even more difficult by the fact that there was a great game buried beneath all of the issues.
The Elder Scrolls and Fallout games offer huge open worlds and numerous methods for overcoming obstacles, so many fans have accepted the fact that there will likely be bugs in a Bethesda game at launch and that they will be dealt with over time. This offers some incentive for holding off on buying the games until a "Game of the Year" edition with all of the bugs fixed and the DLC included becomes available for purchase.
Fallout 76 is promising to be an awesome game, but the fact that Bethesda is so concerned about bugs has left many people worried about the quality of the title at launch. We can only hope that the beta period resolves the major issues with the game.
Fallout 76 is due to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14th.
