Bethesda releases PC requirements for Fallout 76

Fallout 76 - 01

A trillion thanks to you, Bethesda. Although the PC beta only drops on October 30th, they’ve done the community a huge favour by releasing the platform requirements way ahead of schedule. If anyone needs to do some last minute shopping, now’s as good a time as ever!

Recommended
Requires 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7/8.1/10
Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 3.6 GHz/AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5 GHz

After looking through, the Fallout 76 requirements are somewhat beefier than what was required for Fallout 4, but it shouldn’t be a problem for most gaming setups nowadays. Nevertheless, it’s worth checking out your own computer specs so you don’t end up with a game you can’t play.

Moving back to the beta, the Xbox One already had its first session on Tuesday, and we’d like to reiterate Bethesda’s remark that the beta is merely a “stress test”. Expect bugs and flaws when the test drops next week for the other platforms.

Once again, kudos to Bethesda for the gesture. We’ll return that with one of our own. Rather, we’ll let Vault Boy do it.
