Fallout 76 bug deleted the entire beta, Bethesda extends it in penance

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

You have to click on Fallout 76 on the launcher and pre-purchase it if you haven't already if you want to hop in for the beta. The first extended beta kicks off today at 2 p.m. and will last for nine hours giving players their first really prolonged time in the wasteland.

Many users are anxious that those issues will make to the live version of the game considering that Fallout 76 features basically the entire available content.

If your Fallout 76 beta files were deleted, there is a chance you can recover them.

Eager Fallout 76 fans who were hoping to jump onto the much-anticipated PC beta yesterday were greeted with quite a few issues. Run a framerate overlay like FRAPS and you should see the initial loading screens with some insanely high framerates. The reason behind it is simple, this a game logic or game engine bug.

The B.E.T.A for Fallout 76 launched on PS4 and PC this week, and for the latter the experience has been less than ideal. They look up occasionally to walk normally and show the difference between the two speeds, and the FPS number in the top-right corner that changes based on where the player is looking indicates a relationship between the two variables. So if you have a 144Hz or 120Hz display, the above INI hacking may not even be necessary.

But accidentally deleting your customer's entire game is astronomically different from anything players have experienced in a Bethesda game before, and it didn't take long for the gaming community to notice. (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.
