Bethesda Readies Appetites for Quakecon With a Catalog Sale on Steam, Bethesda.net

Bethesda has taken it to Steam's platform to throw around a sale party that looks to whet appetites for their legendary Quakecon. They're doing this sale on a platform which, by the way, won't be the home for Fallout 76 and possibly other, future titles from the company. But that is neither here nor there; this here is for users to be able to snag an awesome deal on what are definitely some of the better games in the industry.

The discounts range from 25% (for the recently released Prey Mooncrash DLC, for example) all the way to 75% (for games such as Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel and the original Fallout), but most games are seeing a 50% mark-down from their current pricing. If you have any extra money you weren't counting on and some Bethesda games on your wishlist, now might be the best time to get the ball rolling.

This is Bethesda's 'Golden Goodbye' to steam and its inhabitants as it prepares to embark on an epic journey of self discovery, online services, buggy base games and questionable business practises.

Fare~thee~well

lol. Skyrim sold over 30 million copies. The only other RPGs that sell that high are Nintendo's. Do you think a launcher is going to stop it?

That's back when bethesda made good RPGs... fallout new vegas, skyrim etc...

Now you get Fallout Rust on their launcher.

If they were releasing the sequel Skyrim on the new platform then maybe - but they're already releasing a conceptually 'meh' game AND they're adding an extra launcher to that??

Maybe it's on purpose for when Fallout 76 doesnt sell - then they can be like "oh well... clearly it was this new launcher... "

Steam sucks. Everyone is trying to leave it. Look at Call of Duty Black Ops 4 aswell. Steam had every Call of Duty for 15 years. Now is gonna be Battle Net exclusive.

Steam nowadays reminds me of Google play store. A games filter and full of crap where the good quality products are hidden.

what they need to do is bring back full games on a retail disk . like it use to be . 100% private and you fully hold the full game software no 3ed party involvement or internet connection required

there getting away from the likes of steam is because now they collect all your info and data , see they just realized to cut that middle man out [steam ] out side of that nothing really changed [opinion]

i think the winner will be the windows store...

eventually they will be like "if you want to sell for XBOX you have to sell on M$ store."

Done... no more steam, no more blizzard, no more origin. So tired of all of these launchers.

Bethesda why?

but also steam toxic content and toxic player and account holders make the place a desert sometimes....

Also such PUBG, CSGO toxic online matches and some others without options to report several things like toxic players or adding a better player classification scheme is making the whole platform worse, banned accounts, phishing and plenty more awful situations might be root of evil with some developers, that preffer to be left alone to start a new platform, im glad for'em cuz everyone needs a chance to overcome, but im afraid this will be Bethesda ends

They need to work pretty hard if they really want to maintain the consumer base they built over the years through steam.

Bad move bad Bethesda not having Fallout 76 on Steam.

In my opinion, part of the reason the PC gaming community has become bolstered as of late is due to Steam and all of Steam's auxiliary services (such as Steam link, voice chat, and steam achievements). Steam has provided a central hub for all PC gamers. Now all these launchers are coming along, and big publishers are removing their content. This just fragments the PC gaming community, and sends it back to the 00s decade and previous.

Why buy any of their games during this sell at this point if they will begin to stop supporting the Steam platform? Other than to possibly convince them to stay.

Bought Dishonored 2 Deluxe for $29.99 so I'm happy.


They're saying immersive simulation is dead with the announcement that there's no plans for a Dishonored 3. I decided to buy now (paying more than I usually would) because I want to reverse that line of thinking.

Dunno, doom was really good, and so was Wolfenstein, not sure what you are complaining about. ID released "Doom 3" and that was total garbage in terms of gameplay and was more of a tech demo of a game engine. What are you nostalgic for?

Everyone is trying to leave it because they want to make more $, not because Steam sucks. IMHO, Call of Duty sucks. The game that gave us Swatters and other idiocy

I wish it wasn’t so but I fear it might be. The games most affected I think will be the ones Bethesda publishes, not their studio. And that pisses me off, because Arkane is a phenomenal studio, owned by their publisher, Bethesda.

I’m hoping the next Elder Scrolls at least will be on Steam. If it’s on Bethesda.net, no sale either. I’ll miss out on future Wolfenstein releases too, I guess.

Call of duty was just another example, nothing else. Has nothing to do with the game being good or bad, because that´s entirely subjective. Of course they want to make more money, who doesn´t want to? Every company in the world does. Steam just decreases in quality year after year. Their anti cheat system is laughable, their user review system is crap, their sudden updates when you are in the middle of a game and have to log out sucks, their store is 90% indie crap early access with 500 new games per day that are worse than 1990s 16 bit games. Their overlay sucks aswell with the amount of ram it consumes and gpu resources. Is just a piece of crap software.

I wish one day I don´t have to use steam anymore. Right now I barely use it (Football Manager). Gog and battle net are so much better. But..... skins and trades!!!!

People don't realize there's nothing LIKE steam, not even gog, even if it comes close to it. Steam isn't a launcher.

Yes, yes it is. Steam is exactly like Uplay, Origin, Battle.net and Bethesda Launcher, just has more participating publishers.


The launcher hate really belongs on this thread, not a thread about a sale.

Dear Customer,

we are fed up with giving 30% of our revenue to Steam.
We couldn't care less that Steve Jobs found 30% cut to be appropriate.

Sincerely,
Bethesda, Epic Games, Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft, EA

Uh, what? There is nothing like gog, from which you can download game installer using a freaking browser, disconnect from the internet and enjoy your game.

No, steam ceased to be a launcher when they started selling other's games. Steam is nothing like the others.
