Fallout 76 goes viral over bug that deletes the entire game

The PC beta for Fallout 76 has a game deleting bug

When the issue first hit, Bethesda warned beta players not to click any buttons on the launcher.

Tuesday night's beta session is set to run from 7 p.m.to 11 p.m. ET.

By default, the Fallout 76 beta's framerate is locked down, and there's no way in the settings to change that.

I doubt that Bethesda will be able to fix this unlocked frame rate issue for Fallout 76. That's not a small download, meaning it'd potentially cost users several hours of game time. For a complete roundup of the facts, check out Everything We Know About Fallout 76.

You should not click on anything in the launcher to avoid the problem.

MI has the defense to match up with Alabama, and I know a few of us at The Action Network would surely bet the Wolverines at +9.5. Strength of schedule, team records, head-to-head results, and eventually championships all factor into the committee's decisions.

As if this were not enough, Bethesda has also ruined the game's launcher and players must download it again.

Regardless, Bethesda chose to make up for the launcher bug by extending the beta into tomorrow evening in order to allow the users who missed the window due to inordinately long download times to play the game. If a button is clicked on the launch client, it can accidentally delete the almost 50GB download instantly.

It's obviously fortuitous the bug surfaced during the beta and not the full game launch.
