Fallout 76 Beta Will Feature Full Game

Bathesda

Now, it's been revealed that the upcoming title will differentiate itself in another way: Fallout 76 will be the first 3D entry in the series not available on Steam.

This news was addressed on the Fallout 76 BETA FAQ page, where the last question reads: "Is the BETA going to be the full game and will my progress carry over to launch?"

Bethesda hasn't explained why it's chose to cut Steam out of the equation this time around, but it could have something to do with wanting to avoid losing any revenue to the platform.

This means the Beta will have you downloading the whole game, but with that you'll have the opportunity to spend as much time as possible during the Beta, uncovering everything Fallout 76 has to offer.

In case you are looking to be a part of the B.E.T.A. phase, all you need to do is pre-order the game, and you'll get invited. Pay attention, however, and you'll realise Bethesda has been trying to do this for years.

Twitter Reacts to New Oscars Popular Film Category: ‘This Is So Lazy’
The 2018 awards show, which clocked in at nearly four hours, was the least-watched Oscars to date. The 2019 ceremony will still air on February 24, while the 2020 show will move to February 9.

Still, it's a controversial decision, as the previous Fallout games have launched on Steam and maintain a huge fan base on the Valve-operated platform. Fallout Shelter, for example, did not initially launch on Steam.

Bethesda joins other publishers in making its next, hotly anticipated game available outside of Steam.

As you can see, PC players won't be able to download the BETA from Steam but only through Bethesda.net.

Of course, it is possible that Fallout 76 will still come to Steam at some point post-launch.
