Bethesda appears to have thrown the towel in when it comes to convincing players to use its own Bethesda.net game client and store.
The official Bethesda Twitter account has just announced Rage 2 will no longer be a Bethesda-store exclusive. That’s not all either, as Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, and, yep, Doom Eternal, will all be coming to Steam.
“We’re pleased to announce that RAGE 2, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, and DOOM Eternal will be released on Steam as well as Bethesda.net,” says Bethesda.
On top of that, if you’re in the mood for some serious self-flagellation then Fallout 76 is also coming to Steam later this year. Which is, umm, great, we guess. Who knows, they may turn that one around, and a population bump from Steam players will definitely come in handy.
Good news all around then, as the Bethesda client is a resource-hogging, terrible beast of a client in its current incarnation. As far as PC gamers are concerned, the longer you can stay away from it, the better. They tried, they failed - they saw sense.
