Fallout 76 Won't Be On Steam, New Beta Details Revealed

08 August 2018

We recently reported some pretty solid information revealed by Bethesda regarding their upcoming online title Fallout 76, including how the entire game will be available at beta.

Bethesda has announced that progress made during Fallout 76's beta in October will carry over into the full version of the game when it launches this November. Of course, the Fallout 76 beta is limited to those who have pre-ordered the game, which means you can't decide to buy the game after experiencing the beta.

It was previously announced that expansion DLC for the game will be free, but there will be paid cosmetic items.

Now the only way to get access to the beta is by pre-ordering Fallout 76, which you can do so from the Microsoft Store here.

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

There is the chance that Fallout 76 does make its way to Steam eventually, particularly if a sales hit occurs. Pay attention, however, and you'll realise Bethesda has been trying to do this for years.

Once that's done, nearer the time of the BETA launch you'll be emailed an access code or download instructions, and away you go.

In the Fallout 76 FAQ it said "Both the B.E.T.A. and the game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and on PC (via Bethesda.net only)". Still, it's a noteworthy move to skip Steam in part because the previous Fallout games were released on Valve's store.
