Bethesda has been carrying a vital emanate with a initial Fallout 76 PC beta session, and it resulted in a warning twitter we really don’t see each day.
Update: Bethesda deleted a twitter following a announcement of this story. Here’s what a twitter said, “PC #Fallout76 B.E.T.A. players: We are wakeful of an emanate with a customer and are investigating. Do not click any buttons on a customer for a time being.”
Original story: Just mins before a start of a Fallout 76 beta event on PC, Bethesda was alerted to a problem that causes a customer to undo all downloaded files.
Given that it’s a 50GB download, this apparently wasn’t ideal. As Bethesda was perplexing to brand a cause, a publisher released a twitter warning players opposite touching any of a buttons in a client.
The denunciation of a twitter is positively unorthodox, and it caused players to make fun of a publisher on amicable media/online forums.

The subsequent tweet, posted dual hours later, indeed explains what a bug is about. It turns out, clicking any symbol on a customer can inexplicably undo a beta download and re trigger it. Bethesda continued to investigate, and asked players to leave a download to finish.
We are actively questioning an emanate causing PC players to redownload a #Fallout76 B.E.T.A. If we see a swell bar, greatfully concede a download to complete. Thank we for your continued calm while we work to solve this issue.

Many players will apparently not be means to download all 50GB in time. The event had a singular window, after all, so some – quite those in Europe – motionless to call it a day.
To try and recompense players for a mislaid time, Bethesda announced an extension to tomorrow’s beta test. This four-hour prolongation means a Nov 1 event will now finish during 8pm PT, 11pm ET, 3am GMT (November 2).
The emanate appears to have been fixed, too, thankfully.
