Is it true if you get the physical copy, you can only play it on the Bethesda Launcher? Versus downloaded is Steam?

    Also seems screwed up that you would need the Bethesda launcher but I wouldn't doubt it. I personally went Steam since most of my games are from Steam.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    I could say it's progress compared to 76 as it's not an exclusive, the launcher may even die before we get Starfield and TES 6.

    It makes sense that it's only through Bethesda since it's their game. Chances are it will install from the discs and open the Bethesda launcher online to play.

    It's Bethesda's launcher, not Epic.

     Can you use a gift card to buy a gift card?
     
     
    EDIT:   Just found out you cannot do that:
     
     
    Question:  Can I use my Best Buy Gift Card to purchase prepaid open-loop and third-party gift cards?
     
    Answer:  No. Best Buy Gift Cards cannot be used to purchase prepaid open-loop cards and third-party gift cards (including iTunes, Google Play, gaming or any other prepaid gift cards or codes).

    The good news is that the digital codes are back at Best Buy. The bad news is that 5 out of the 7 reviews said they had problems with the code.
