Fallout 76 Won't Be On Steam

Bethesda has been very secretive about the beta for Fallout 76, but they've made a decision to give us a small peek behind the curtain before QuakeCon starts this weekend by updating the beta's FAQ ahead of its planned release in October.

Instead, the PC version of the post-apocalyptic multiplayer effort will only be available for purchase through the Bethesda.net website.

Revealed in the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A FAQ, Bethesda states that the "current plan for the B.E.T.A.is it will be the full game and all your progress is saved for launch".

A New Planet that Does not Orbit any Star has been Discovered
Brown dwarfs have long baffled experts because they're too big to be considered planets but are not big enough to be stars. Though it was first detected in 2016, scientists initially identified it as one of five recently discovered brown dwarfs.

While many assumed it would just be a small slice of what the game has to offer, Fallout 76's beta will actually be the entire full game.

The Beta won't be on Steam, meaning that you will have to download another client to play it, much like games found on Uplay, BattleNet or Origin.

There is the chance that Fallout 76 does make its way to Steam eventually, particularly if a sales hit occurs. If you have yet to pick up a copy of the game, you can pre-order it on Amazon ahead of its release this fall.

Critics accuse Boris Johnson of 'bigotry' over burqa comments
Mr Johnson insisted that he had meant no harm and apologised "unreservedly" if he had offended Ms Thornberry's feelings. Another Conservative MP, Nadine Dorries, said the government should apologise and that "Boris didn't go far enough".

Fallout 76 will release on November 15th, 2018 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

"Be sure you've read our F.A.Q., for details on how to redeem your B.E.T.A. code and other important details". Players who play the beta will also be excited to hear that any progress they make in the beta will have it carried over into the final game, something that never really happens when it comes to these things. As PCGamer points out though, it took nearly a year for that to happen with the mobile-orientated game, so it could be that it takes some time for Fallout 76 to make the jump, if it ever does.
