Fallout 76 PC Beta Issues - Launcher Fiasco & Lack of Settings

The PC beta for Fallout 76 has a game deleting bug

Fallout 76 Doesn’t Support Ultra Wide Displays, No FOV Slider & Game Speed Linked to FPS; Bethesda Investigating B.E.T.A. Launcher Issues

Users have found the Fallout 76 PC beta test deleting itself from their computers.

As consolation for this less-than-ideal start to the beta, Bethesda Game Studios announced on Tuesday that they're extending the beta for players on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. As Hines said, anything can happen at beta stage, so get in early in case there are any other unplanned surprises in store. That would mean that players with 16:10 and 21:9 monitors will have no way to disable black bars.

The game's launcher also appears to be bugged as it is seemingly deleting the game, and players are now forced to download the entire game again.

The Bethesda launcher and forums for Fallout 76 are now not working in an unstable server status ahead of tonight's beta test.

The default Field-of-Vision in the game is set to 80, the same as in Fallout 4. (As with tinkering with any game file, you do so at your own risk.) After running the game once and choosing your settings, exit the game and open Windows Explorer.

I also just posted in the fo76 subreddit that game speed is still tied to framerate.

Chances are Bethesda will lock the game at 60 FPS to avoid increased player speed. PC Gamer reported the game was missing a push-to-talk feature and text chat, features that have been staples of the online game since roughly the Paleolithic era.

Fallout 76 is a game riddled with bugs and glitches and all those issues that a game shouldn't be known for, but here it is and well, to be honest, there's no such thing as a bad marketing right? Your copy of the bundle will be available in your Bethesda.net account "on or by" November 14.
