Bethesda.net games can now be migrated to Steam before its final closure
In February, developer Bethesda, responsible for games like Fallout 76, announced that it would close its game distribution platform or “launcher” Bethesda.net. The solution proposed to its clients was none other than to migrate the games to Steam, although until now it had not been possible.
From today, users who have purchased games on their Bethesda.net account can now start the process of migrating to Steam to unify them under their catalog on the Valve platform. The process involves logging into your Bethesda.net account and using this specific link to transfer your entire game library, so there’s no game-by-game process involved.
Games, DLC and wallets with game items will be migrated, however save games and settings stored in the cloud will not be migrated, something to keep in mind if you want to continue your games. Some games have already migrated their save system to Steam, for others it will be necessary to do it manually.
Therefore, one of the game purchase and distribution applications disappears, which means a little more unification between platforms that currently exist on the PC such as Steam, Epic Games, Origin or Uplay. Let’s remember that some services like GoG Galaxy are already trying to unify by combining games from different platforms.
Bethesda.net will continue to operate until May 11.
