Fallout 76 won't be available on Steam

Bethesda Abandons Steam for the Fallout 76 Launch on PC

Regarding the details of the beta test, another interesting revelation came from Bethesda in terms of the fact that the beta will effectively be the full game, and your progress will be carried over to the purchased version (at least that's the plan right now). They make great games but they're usually riddled with bugs and glitches so to lessen the blow, Bethesda will be holding a beta in October for people who pre-order.

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. In Quake Champions' case, the open beta had a couple of short months' head start on Bethesda's launcher, whereas it was eight months in Fallout Shelter's case.

"With that in mind, we know you're anxious to learn more about the game and more specifically, about the B.E.T.A". Bethesda recommends, when creating your account, you should sign up with the same email which is associated with your Xbox/PS4 gamertag for easier access and updates.

China continues 'fair and lawful' business in Iran, despite USA sanctions
It will be followed in November by other measures affecting the oil and gas sector as well as the Central Bank. His Tuesday morning tweet came as Washington's new sanctions on Tehran took effect overnight.

Fallout 76 is set to be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 14 November this year.

What is surprising about this move, however, is that Bethesda may be skipping the chance to bolster the adoption of the multiplayer action role-playing game by not launching it on Steam, which is one of the large PC digital distribution platforms in the world.

One of the examples given is that if your base gets blown to smithereens by a nefarious group of wasteland wanderers, expect the radiation to be still giving you sickness when you play upon launch. Fallout 76 seems to be a test run for this strategy, so if all goes well, we'll likely see this practise continue. Will you be playing it?
