Microsoft is very strict when it comes to punishment for breaking NDA and this was recently seen with the leaks for Fallout 76 stress test beta, currently only available to Xbox Live Insiders and those who have pre-ordered the game.
Just as the stress test started, people were streaming their game on Twitch leading to a mass suspension of their Twitch account. If you didn’t read the NDA, chances are that you won’t have any idea that sharing footage or screenshots is prohibited. Moreover, to get into this stress test, one has to be a member of the Xbox Insider program.
As shared by Reddit user Carjbee317, this led to the Xbox Live account of his friend getting suspended for sharing just one and a half minute of gameplay footage on Twitter.
The footage that was uploaded led to the suspension of the Twitter account, Xbox Live and Xbox Insider membership. He later followed it up with an update confirming that Bethesda agreed to remove the suspension of the Twitter account but said that they can’t help with the Xbox Live Account suspension, which will last until January 1st.
Fallout 76 will be available to play officially on November 14th. There is a beta test planned for the game that will begin first with the Xbox One on October 23rd followed by the PS4 and PC on October 30. There is no NDA for this beta test so feel free to stream or share footage from it.
