Fallout 76 won’t be released on Steam – PC version will be exclusive to Bethesda.net

Bethesda has officially confirmed that Fallout 76 will not be released on Steam, and will instead release as a store exclusive on the publisher’s standalone Bethesda.net storefront.  

In the company’s Fallout 76 B.E.T.A (Break-it Early Test Application), Bethesda plans to offer players access to the full game and allow their progress to be transferred to the entire game at launch. B.E.T.A access is guaranteed for all players who pre-order the game on the PlayStation Store, the Xbox One Store and on Bethesda.net. 

Beta Access will be granted to Xbox One players first, followed by other platforms. At this time, Bethesda has not revealed when the game’s beta will launch. This makes Fallout 76’s B.E.T.A feel more like Early Access than a traditional Beta, given its paid for nature and included content.  

 


Both the B.E.T.A. and the game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and on PC (via Bethesda.net only). Stay tuned for exact B.E.T.A. timing for each platform here and @Fallout on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Please note that the B.E.T.A. for Xbox One will begin first, followed by other platforms.

Our current plan for the B.E.T.A. is it will be the full game and all your progress is saved for launch. We hope you join us!
 

  

 

Fallout 76 is set to release on November 14th on PC, Xbox One and PS4. More information about Fallout 76 should become available at Quakecon 2018, which starts on August 10th.
