Bethesda has extended the Fallout 76 beta on November 1 for PC players by four hours. This is due to a bug in the previous beta version that deleted game files requiring players to redownload the entire game.
During the PC beta, Bethesda posted a tweet confirming that they are aware that some users had been forced to redownload the beta and as a result, many players would not be able to join in.
We know some users have been forced to redownload the #Fallout76 B.E.T.A. and not everyone will be able to enjoy the game tonight. To make good, we’ll be extending the B.E.T.A. for everyone on Thursday, November 1, 2pm to 11pm ET.
Thanks for your patience. #ExtendtheBeta

Because so many people were affected by the bug, Bethesda announced that they would be extending the beta on November 1 by four hours. The beta will start at 6pm and end at 3am (BST).
