Technology and video game companies take NDAs and embargoes seriously. You don’t break them. Apparently, a player who participated in last Saturday’s stress test for Fallout 76 on the Xbox One either didn’t get the message or thought he could get away with it. He didn’t, and both Bethesda and Xbox dropped the hammer on him.
Players who signed up for the stress test were required to click-to-agree to an NDA that prohibited taking or sharing photos, videos or audio recordings, describing the game online or offline, allowing people to watch them play during the test, or leaving the game running unattended. A Reddit user reported that a friend of his broke the NDA by posting a 90 second video of his gameplay on Twitter. Bethesda and Xbox were able to identify the offending player because during the video he clicked on the username of the Reddit poster to invite him to the stress test and doing so displayed the offender’s username.
