Fallout 76 for PC Will Not Be on Steam: Bethesda

Fallout 76 BETA is the full game with progress carried over

Fallout 76 BETA is the full game with progress carried over

Rumours have been kicking around for a while, and now it's pretty much locked in: if you're looking forward to playing Fallout 76, you won't be using Steam.

"The PC version of Fallout 76, for both the B.E.T.A. and the launch, will be available only via Bethesda.net, not on Steam", a Bethesda representative said in a email to PC Gamer. A small taster to test online servers or game balancing.

If Bethesda has its way, the Fallout 76 beta will give players access to the entire game. But that hasn't stopped fans from combing through every little detail now available to create a speculative map of the game. And here's the kicker: Progress made in the beta will transfer over to the final game.

Couples in a household will receive up to an additional $12,000 and single households will receive up to $7200. The NSW Farmers' Association and Queensland's AgForce both welcomed the federal government's announcement.

The upcoming Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break it Early Test Application) won't simply be a vertical slice of the game. Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines also tweeted about the Bethesda.net exclusivity for Fallout 76.

Dataminers, I imagine, would be thrilled with that idea. In other words, the beta is going to be Fallout 76 - you're just going to be able to start early, and hopefully help the developer fix any problems that (will most likely) arise. Exact dates are still unknown.
