Bethesda Launcher, is officially about to close its doors: starting May 11, players will no longer be able to use the client to access titles such as Doom Eternal, Fallout 76, Skyrim and others, but the save data will certainly not be lost: from today in fact, users will be able to migrate all their games, save the data and all the funds in their wallet on Steam.
Bethesda Launcher closes its doors: data is transferred to Steam
To initiate the transfer, users must go to the Bethesda Library Transfer page, log in using their account credentials, and link their Steam profile. After the accounts have been linked, they will be given the option to start transferring all games to Steam. While the process is fairly straightforward, it may take some time to complete.
Transferring the save data of individual games is a little more complicated. Bethesda has created a series of walkthroughs that show you how to move the save data for certain games to Steam. The publisher has also issued a warning to players stating that if they own a game on both Bethesda.net and Steam, transferring the save data will actually overwrite all existing save files. Players should therefore only transfer their save data if their Bethesda save is the one they wish to continue using.
After transferring Bethesda games to Steam, players will continue to have access to your Bethesda.net account. For all the details on how to proceed with the transfer, we refer you to the official Bethesda website, where all the step-by-step steps are listed to complete the entire operation.
