So here’s a nice surprise: We knew Fallout 76 was coming to Steam, but we didn’t know that existing players could claim a free Steam copy to play there when Wastelanders rolls out. Yep, that’s now happening. Good show, Bethsoft.
“[W]e’re happy to announce that if you already own the PC version of Fallout 76 on Bethesda.net, then you will also be able to claim a free copy of the game on Steam for a limited time. All you will need to do is link your Bethesda.net and Steam accounts between now and 11:59 p.m. ET on April 12. You can do this by following our account linking instructions on Bethesda.net. Once Fallout 76 becomes available on Steam, PC players who linked their accounts by April 12 will automatically receive a copy of the game on Steam. We will let you know once we’re ready to send out Steam codes after the account linking period is over.”
In other Fallout 76 news, there’s a triple experience event this weekend, along with updates to the launch bundles. Do note that the launch had previously been delayed a few times; it now looks real good for April 14th.
