A New Way to Test

The Public Test Server is reopening to share an early look at the upcoming Nuka-World on Tour update for Fallout 76. Now for this round of playtesting, players can expect something new. Instead of having the test server kept online, the PTS will be available for one week then followed by a one-week break. The schedule then repeats. It seems that this is to give the development team additional time to look through feedback and reports. With the break, the team can make adjustments before bringing the test server online again. The first week of playtesting starts October 19 and after a week closes, it resumes on October 27.

The Fallout series of games started as post-apocalyptic role-playing video games that later became action RPGs. The latest title is Fallout 76, launched in November 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
