Fallout 76, the massively multiplayer new game in Bethesda’s long-running RPG series, is out this week. It had a good run in the beta, but now you can get rid of it and be ready to play the full game. But when will that be exactly? What are the Fallout 76 release times for every region? Is preloading available yet? We’ve got all the answers, and it’s good news all round.
What are the Fallout 76 Release Times?
Bethesda revealed the full Fallout 76 release times on Twitter, so we now know exactly when every Fallout 76 player in every region will get to play the game. The Fallout 76 release date is officially this Wednesday, November 14, but how does that translate to times around the world? Here’s the full list of Fallout 76 release times for your area:
- Los Angeles: November 13, 9:01 PM PST
- New York: November 14, 12:01 AM EST
- São Paulo: November 14, 12:01 AM BRT
- London: November 14, 12:01 AM UTC
- Paris: November 14, 12:01 AM CEST
- Moscow: November 14, 12:01 AM MSK
- Singapore: November 15, 12:01 AM SGT
- Taipei: November 15, 12:01 AM CST
- Tokyo: November 15, 12:01 AM JST
- Sydney: November 14, 12:01 AM AEST
This does mean that Asian territories will get the game slightly later than everywhere else, but not too much later. If our time zone calculators are accurate, we believe this means that France (and other European countries using CEST) get the game first, and the UK (which is an hour later) also gets access to Fallout 76 before the US does.

When is Preloading Available on All Platforms?
Preloading was available for Xbox One last Friday, November 9. PC technically has the beta, which if you’ve kept it on your system acts as a preload anyway. Nevertheless, preloading is available as of right now for all platforms, including PS4. So if you’ve pre-ordered Fallout 76 you can get the game downloaded this instant and be able to play the second you hit your region’s release times. Which is a good thing, because there’s a massive patch you’ll need to download before you do.
