Let’s be frank, Bethesda games are buggy nightmares – especially on launch. Getting stuck in scenery, flying NPCs, unbeatable quests, all of this is par for the course when playing a game from Bethesda Game Studios. This time around, however, BGS has announced that the game’s Break it Early Test Application (B.E.T.A) will be full of bugs as if we hadn’t already predicted it.
In a very lengthy letter to Bethesda fans, the company explains that with 76 being their first online game there’s bound to be a metric tonne of weird and wacky bugs.

Bethesda says, “We need your help finding them, and advice on what’s important to fix. We’ll address all of it, now and after launch.”
This isn’t anything new to Bethesda’s games. Everything from Morrowind to Fallout 4 has seen numerous substantial fan patches, which were recently made available for console users. This time around, however, Bethesda won’t be allowing mods until late 2019 so we’ll have to rely on them to fix all the important bugs.
