Fallout 76 has gone live a day early for PC players. The game is meant to go live at midnight in whatever timezone you’re in, but players in Europe and North America are reporting that they can play the game now.
Reclamation Day starts early.
Fallout 76 is supposed to release tomorrow, as shown by this tweet:

However, players on PC are reporting that they’re getting in early. This includes players from the US west coast and the UK. It might not look playable at first, but clicking and waiting a bit brings up the ‘Play’ button. Whether this is intentional or another bug on Bethesda’s end is yet to be seen.
Bethesda posted yesterday about the then-upcoming release of Fallout 76’s full version. Of particular note is some of the features planned for the game:
We have an incredible list of updates we’ve begun work on – from C.A.M.P. building improvements, new quests and events, new Vaults opening, character respecing, a faction-based PvP system, and much more.
Fallout 76 costs $60 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game runs through their client, instead of Steam. That could be considered a troubling fact for PC players. Steam is well-tested, and we’ve seen some of the issues PC players have had with Bethesda’s launcher.
