Fallout 76 Won't Be Available On Steam

In the past, The Elder Scrolls Legends and Fallout Shelter weren't at Steam first.

It has been confirmed that the Fallout 76 beta will in fact be the full game, with progression hopefully going across to the final version of the game. That's not a huge surprise given the upgrades and changes Bethesda has been making to their launcher, but forgoing Valve's platform will still have substantial practical effects.

Just today, Bethesda updated the FAQ section of its Fallout 76 beta site, which covers everything about the upcoming multiplayer test.


A bunch of Fallout 76 beta information has been released as we presumably get closer to it taking place. Beyond that, how the game's open world will be laid out and what exactly it will look like remains a mystery. Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines also tweeted about the Bethesda.net exclusivity for Fallout 76. And here's the kicker: Progress made in the beta will transfer over to the final game. "Please note that the beta for Xbox One will begin first, followed by other platforms", reads the Fallout 76 FAQ.

Obviously, players won't be able to experience all that Fallout 76 has to offer in the beta - there will certainly be restrictions - but this detail is promising regardless.
