Bethesda is planning to run a closed Fallout 4 DLC beta and it’s encouraging gamers to sign up if they want to try the downloadable content early. Should you? Let’s take a look.
For several months, Bethesda kept us all in the dark about its Fallout 4 DLC. The developer released some vague details about its plans but until this week we didn’t have anything concrete.
This week the company confirmed three upcoming Fallout 4 DLC add-ons including Automatron (March), Wasteland Workshop (April), and Far Harbor (May). The company is planning to release for Fallout 4 DLC later in the year.
In the buildup to these release dates, Bethesda is going to be running a closed beta. The beta will allow some people to try out the Fallout 4 DLC content ahead of the public release dates for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
The Fallout 4 DLC beta is available to console owners and PC users and it’s a tempting proposition for many people.
There are some really good reasons to sign up for the Fallout 4 DLC beta. There are also a few reasons to consider leaving it to others. Here we want to take a look at both sides and help you make a decision about what you want to do with the upcoming Fallout 4 DLC Beta.
You Want to Help Bethesda Improve the DLC
If you want to help Bethesda improve the upcoming Fallout 4 DLC, you'll want to sign up for the closed beta right now.
The point of this Fallout 4 DLC beta is not to drum up interest about the upcoming content. It's to help Bethesda iron out the kinks ahead of a public release that will almost certainly encompass several million people around the world. Fallout 4 is a popular game.
The developer will be looking for feedback from its beta testers and this feedback will help it improve the overall quality of the release.
If you enjoy digging into software looking for problems or if you have a good heart and simply want to do your best to improve things for those that don't get picked or choose not to join the beta process, the Fallout 4 DLC Beta is worth a look.
Remember, signing up is free and there's no known penalty for doing so. If you decide that you don't have time to participate, you should be able to decline the invite when and if it arrives in your inbox.
