Fallout 76 PC Players Report Inability to Uninstall B.E.T.A.

Now that the last Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. event has concluded and launch is mere days away, it's time for players to get their PCs up to snuff and ready to roll. Time to uninstall the B.E.T.A. client, right? Wrong! According to Fallout 76 Redditors, there is no option for removing it from their systems, at least by traditional means. The issue seems to be spread across those who received a B.E.T.A. code for pre-purchasing the game as well as those who received a code from a friend.

Those who make the attempt see the Bethesda.net launcher pop up that also requires login credentials. When doing so and continuing the uninstall process, a message is shown that reads, "You do not have access to this game. Please make sure you are signed in with the Bethesda.net account associated with the purchase of this game."

According to some players, it is possible that the reason the B.E.T.A. client can't be uninstalled is because the game's servers are not yet online but that, once live, it should be removable. 

Those who have preordered the game will automatically have the B.E.T.A. client updated to the full version of the game on launch day, November 14th.

In other news, the first day's patch size has been announced. While disk installation weighs in at 45GB, the day one patch comes in even bigger at 51GB. Players can likely expect some bug fixes along the lines of the ones detailed last week.
