Bethesda PC Launcher users can now start migrating to Steam | Engadget

It’s time to say goodbye to Bethesda’s PC game launchers. As of today, players can, as well as DLC, virtual currency, in-game items and their friends list to their Steam account. Users still have until May 11 to play their heart out on the Bethesda PC launcher. On that date, the PC launcher will no longer allow access to any game. However, users can still access their accounts and transfer their games to Steam after May 11th.

Players who are ready to migrate should make sure to read on Bethesda’s website first. Any games that users already own or purchases they have made will be available for free on Steam. But keep in mind that the transfer process can get a bit hairy. While most saved games are automatically transferred, some will require players to manually transfer them to Steam. E.g, DOOM Eternal players must manually copy their saved files to their Steam folder. Bethesda has some updated instructions for DOOM Eternal players. Fallout 76 Players should note that there is one available to facilitate the migration, as well as a comprehensive FAQ they should read first. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is currently not available for download, so players will not be able to transfer their progression on that game to Steam. But in-game skins and DLCs should be transferred normally.

While migrating your library may seem annoying, Bethesda is sweetening the pot by making a number of new games available on Steam for the first time. These include The Elder Scrolls Arena, The Elder Scrolls Daggerfall, Creation Kit for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Editionand Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Fallout 76‘s public test server is now also available on Steam.
