Bethesda Blows Off Steam With 'Fallout 76'

  • The Fallout 76 Beta Will Be The Full Game But The Game Won’t Be On Steam Shannon Grixti

As Bethesda has just revealed, the Fallout 76 beta will feature the full game rather than just a slice of a larger pie. According to the official FAQ listing, Fallout 76 beta will be indeed the full game and the progress will be saved for launch.

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

This is great news for any players who get their hands on the early access codes because it means they won't have to start from scratch after the November release, but how exactly do you get these codes?

Disney says its new streaming service won't rival Netflix
Up until now, after a film hit theaters, it came to digital, then Blu-ray/DVD, and finally streaming services like Netflix . Gains in products related to the Avengers weren't enough to offset lower revenue from "Spider-Man" and "Cars".

One possible motivation behind ditching Steam could simply be that Bethesda doesn't want to give Valve a cut of Fallout 76's earnings.

Those still looking to secure their spot in the beta can pre-order Fallout 76 now at Mighty Ape.

"With that in mind, we know you're anxious to learn more about the game and more specifically, about the B.E.T.A". Pay attention, however, and you'll realise Bethesda has been trying to do this for years. Be sure you've read our FAQ, for details on how to redeem your beta code and other important details. The beta for Fallout 76 will kick off on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in October, with the beta coming to Xbox One users first. It's a little surprising given that Fallout 4 was released on Steam, but Bethesda is probably confident that their own launcher is mature enough. Fallout 76 seems to be a test run for this strategy, so if all goes well, we'll likely see this practise continue.
