Preparing for Fallout 76 Beta

The Fallout 76 PC beta was made available for download on Friday. Those of us who have pre-ordered should be able to start playing next Tuesday. Since progress will (theoretically) carry over into the live game, the beta is essentially the beginning of a character’s journey in post-apocalypse West Virginia. I’ve been getting in the gaming mood by watching wasteland movies a la Mad Max: Fury Road and A Boy and His Dog and cryptozoological movies including The Mothman Prophesies. Here are my favorite Fallout 76 resources for preparing for October 30. They include build planning, lore, speculation and, yes, spoilers.
