And yet, players’ e-wallets on Bethesda.net will also be linked to Steam. Players will still be able to continue using Bethesda.net until May of this year.
All games players own on Bethesda.net will be available for free on Steam. Bethesda insists you won’t lose any products, no progress, and the transitions will require some manual work. You will still need a Bethesda.net login account to perform some procedures.
However, your Bethesda.net account will still exist. Bethesda asserts: “Your account will not be lost, and will still be available for login on our homepage and in-game, and we will continue to support Bethesda.net accounts in our future games.“. The friend list on Bethesda.net will also soon merge with the Steam friend list.
