Fallout 76 is one of the most anticipated games this year for more than enough reasons, and a beta version is expected before the game finally appears in November. All players who pre-order the game have guaranteed access to this beta but can only do so through Bethesda.net, not through Steam.

Bethesda said that players playing the beta will not lose their progress and will move on to the final version of Fallout 76.

Beta access is initially granted to Xbox One players, followed by other platforms. At this time, Bethesda has not yet revealed when the beta version of the game will be released. This makes Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. an early access rather than a traditional beta.

Why isn’t he with Steam?

Bethesda has not given the reason for this decision, but it is easy to understand why. Publishing a game on Steam is not free and for every copy sold a part of the money goes to Valve. Apparently, Bethesda is confident that game 76 will be successful enough not to depend on Steam, and that players will buy it, even if it doesn’t appear in Valve’s shop.

Fallout 76 will be released on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on November 14; more information about this upcoming game should be available on Quakecon 2018, which begins August 10.
