Collected games, wallet and most of your saves from Bethesda Laucher can be transferred to Steam from 27 April.
In February, Bethesda announced plans to discontinue the Bethesda Launcher, as the service was not very popular. Now, in a recent blog post, details have been released about the discontinuation of the launcher and the move to Steam.
“If you do have games through the Bethesda.net launcher, don’t worry. Starting on April 27 you’ll be able to migrate your games and Wallet to your Steam account.”
Detailed instructions will be released on April 27. Some games will have their saves automatically transferred, others will need to be manually copied to the appropriate folder. “At the moment, we expect that almost all saves will be automatically or manually transferred, with the exception of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which cannot be transferred at the moment”. Good news is that DLCs and in-game currencies will be automatically transferred to Steam.
The Bethesda Launcher will run until 11 May, but even if you don’t manage to transfer all your games to Steam by then, it will be possible to do so later. Games will continue to use your Bethesda.net login after the migration.
“For games that require it, you will still use your Bethesda.net login to sign in to play. Your Bethesda.net account will not be lost and will still be accessible on our website and in-game, and we will continue supporting all Bethesda.net accounts with our future titles.”
The Bethesda Launcher has never been popular, so this move wasn’t actually too much of a surprise.
