Fallout 76 will not be available on Steam

Fallout 76 will not be available on Steam

We're not totally sure of the scale of Fallout 76 outside of its very large and detailed map but hopefully, this is a sign of a really ambitious and meaty game otherwise, Bethesda risks showing all their cards significantly early.

In Fallout 76's beta FAQ, it's stated that "the game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and on PC (via Bethesda.net only)". However, a representative from the video game publisher has now confirmed to PC Gamer that the PC version of the game won't be launching on Steam for both the beta stage and the full release. Progress made during the beta will carry over to the full version in November.

"With that in mind, we know you're anxious to learn more about the game and more specifically, about the B.E.T.A".

When it comes to the PC version, Fallout 76 won't be available to buy on Steam, with Bethesda deciding to directly sell the game itself instead.

Of course, it is possible that Fallout 76 will still come to Steam at some point post-launch.

As you can see, PC players won't be able to download the BETA from Steam but only through Bethesda.net.

The studio also stated that feedback gathered from the beta will be incorporated into the game.

The Beta begins in October and will be open to those who've pre-ordered. Though beta tests are absolutely nothing new for games, when a company takes a beloved franchise and flips it on its head, that testing period becomes vital when satiating fan curiousities and sating worries.
