Fallout 76 and Other 2019 Bethesda Games are Coming to Steam

Bethesda is going back to Steam.

Bethesda tried something new when it announced that Fallout 76 would only be available on the Bethesda Store. But it looks like Bethesda is back to embracing Steam after announcing its upcoming slate of games like Rage 2 and Doom Eternal, as well as Fallout 76, are coming to Steam later this year.

In a tweet, Bethesda announced that Rage 2, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, Doom Eternal, and Fallout 76 will all be coming to Steam in 2019. No further details were given, but this suggests that these titles will be coming to Steam at launch.

Fallout 76 was Bethesda's first exclusive on the Bethesda store, but faced some issues during launch, including a bug that forced players to re-download the whole title. There were some rumors that Bethesda's 2019 lineup of games, including Rage 2 would also be Bethesda store exclusives, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

So far only Rage 2 has a confirmed release date for Bethesda. Co-developed by id Software and Avalanche Studios, Rage 2 is a colorful post-apocalyptic shooter with advanced physics and massive open world. Rage 2 is set to come out on May 14, 2019.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot don't have release dates yet but are set for a 2019 release. Both games take place decades after the events of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, with Youngblood starring BJ Blazkowicz' twin daughters Jessica and Sophia Blazkowicz, who are on the hunt for their father in Paris.

Cyberpilot, meanwhile, is a VR experience starring a member of the French Resistance. Lastly there's Doom Eternal, which is a sequel to 2016's Doom reboot. Doom Eternal will be coming to Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia as well as the usual console suspects.

The Steam vs. Epic fight has been one of the biggest narratives in 2019 and in a time where Epic is rounding up exclusives, Bethesda has decided to work with Steam and Valve on its major PC releases. Whether this agreement is a result of the two company's long-standing relationship or some kind of deal is unknown.
