Lots of people have been wondering why PC players of Fallout 4 will still need to download content on Steam despite owning a physical copy. Well those of you who’ve wondered that now have an answer.
Lots of people have been tweeting at Bethesda’s Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing Pete Hines asking the exact same question and somebody finally received an answer. Hines replied by saying…
“Yes, though you will still have to download from Steam. The disc doesn’t contain the entire game.”
This lead to some quickly asking why all discs on consoles have all the content while PC won’t. Hines responded by saying..
“PC requires activation on Steam. Console does not. Console ship on Blu-rays, PC ships on DVDs.”
In short, Steam is required to cut down on online piracy.
