Fallout 76 Won't Be On Steam, New Beta Details Revealed

If Bethesda has its way, the Fallout 76 beta will give players access to the entire game.

Instead, the PC version of the post-apocalyptic multiplayer effort will only be available for purchase through the Bethesda.net website. Bethesda said on its FAQ page that if everything goes according to plan, the beta version of the game will become the full version at launch, allowing those who helped fine tune the game to keep their progress between versions.
