Fallout 76 to be exclusive to Bethesda.net

Fallout 76 beta full game

It is, perhaps, worth noting that Bethesda's confirmation should not be taken to mean that the company does not plan to roll out Fallout 76 to Steam at all in the future, though Steam users may have to wait quite long before that happens.

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

The second bombshell is that Bethesda confirmed that progress from the Beta will carry over to the full game, as the Beta is the full game.

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 is a surprising move, as most of Bethesda's big games do launch on Steam, and sell very well over there.

"With that in mind, we know you're anxious to learn more about the game and more specifically, about the B.E.T.A". The game's pre-order page also allows you to select Best Buy, Amazon, GameStop and Walmart as your retailer if you're in the USA and playing on PC; different retailers are listed based on location and platform.

Gates admits he cheated on wife at Manafort trial
The defense in the trial of Paul Manafort went on the attack Tuesday against the government's star witness , Rick Gates . Gates is cooperating in hopes of a lighter prison sentence. "In Cyprus, they were documented as loans".

Fallout 76 makes a few departures from the established Fallout formula.

Once that's done, nearer the time of the BETA launch you'll be emailed an access code or download instructions, and away you go. This is also the case when the full game is released, but like Fallout Shelter it could come to Steam at a later date.

Bethesda's first attempt at an online game (the developer, not the publisher who has released Elder Scrolls Online) will likely be a rough one given their track record with single player games.

Obviously, none of this affects the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 versions.
