[Update: Some users are reporting that Bethesda now has a pre-patched version of the game up on PS4 and Xbox making the download 51.6GB whereas the physical copies of the game still require installing from the disc and installing the game.]
Online only games have massive day one patches these days which in some cases (cough, cough Black Ops 4) require the entire game to be re-downloaded. While that seemed to be the case at first for Fallout 76, thankfully it’s not. However, the game will still require a substantial amount of downloading. Upon performing a disc-based install, those who bought the game on physical media will have 45GB of the required data already. After that, their PS4 will need to download 51.6GB worth of updates to the game. The resulting final file size will be 96.6GB, which means digital copy owners will need to download that amount to play.

Update: Pete Hines has released a statement regarding this evolving issue. “Folks, chill. I work with a lot of devs and games for whom this is important going forward. Fallout 76 does not support crossplay, for a number of reasons. I have no idea if it ever will. But I assure you it is not on our radar right now as we focus on B.E.T.A. and launch.” leading us to believe that Sony’s move has been too little too late for Fallout after all. Bethesda’s role in bringing cross-play to the Xbox and PS4 remains, and their ultimatum on The Elder Scrolls Legends a brave move indeed. Below is our original unedited story.
Graciously the biggest gaming company of this console generation has recently announced a Beta for Fortnite cross-play between PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox adding to the already supported Mobile and PC cross-play functionality. This comes off the tail of a heated debate between fans, Epic Games, Sony, the developers of Rocket League, and surprisingly Bethesda Games.

Atomic energy was just one perk of splitting the atom, but more importantly – nuclear weaponry was also made possible by this grand scientific breakthrough.

October 2018 will be a very special time for those who still pre-order once in a while in an age where many game companies make us want to “wait-and-see” instead. Big bro Todd Howard (a.k.a. Godd Powered) has announced on Twitter that the time for enjoying Fallout 76 is approaching. Exact details are still being worked out but the game’s B.E.T.A. (Break-It-Early Test Application) period will launch in October for Xbox first, then PS4 and PC. That means there should be plenty of footage, impressions, and examples of gameplay for those still on the fence to view before the game releases November 14, 2018.

Many gamers have expressed doubts over the past week since the full reveal of Fallout 76 took place in Los Angeles during E3, the largest electronics entertainment industry event in the world. Bethesda Game Studios has released a lot of information about the game, but through a variety of channels.
The ambiguous nature of their reveal has done little to quell concerns that this new game will indeed be a quality experience. While we at RealGamerNewZ remain optimistic about the title, this skeptical outlook can be understood as a reaction to the fact that the game is a multiplayer online survival set in a semi-persistent shared world. Attempts at this genre have been lacking in the past, and even plagued by many issues that were repeated and remain unsolved issues in game design. Fans are worried Fallout 76 will suffer the same fate, although there’s evidence to believe that Bethesda’s approach will be better than previous entries in the genre.
