Fallout 3 Requires Games For Windows Live Removed
With the new update to Fallout 3, the game’s dependence on Games For Windows Live has disappeared.
In 2007, Microsoft launched a game launcher called “Games For Windows Live” to connect PC and Xbox Live users. With this service, it was aimed to bring Xbox achievements and some Xbox social features to the PC side.
However, PC users could never warm up to this service, which has an extremely bad user interface, and the service was shut down in 2014. Since then, numerous publishers and developers have attempted to make their games independent of Games For Windows Live. In fact, according to the news of PC Gamer on this subject, one of these games was “Dark Souls: Ready To Die Edition”, which is one of the high-profile games recently introduced in the service.
Bethesda, on the other hand, has not been able to remove the Games For Windows Live dependency of the Fallout 3 game for some reason. And this addiction made running Fallout 3 on Steam a complete torture. Because in order to play Bethesda’s famous RPG game, you had to either overcome various difficulties and make the Games For Windows Live service work on Windows 10, or use a mod to remove the game’s connection with the service. Both of these methods are quite challenging for someone who just wants to play games in today’s conditions.
Fortunately, with the update to Fallout 3 and the GOTY version, this problem is a thing of the past. The new update removes all remnants of Games For Windows Live in the game and allows you to open the game without any problems. In a section of the released patch notes, “If Fallout 3 is pre-installed on Steam, we recommend uninstalling and reinstalling the game. The game no longer requires Games for Windows Live and will launch immediately.” There is also an explanation.
While this is good news, the problems that the Games For Windows Live service has caused to players are not limited to this. In the past year, Rockstar had to remove GTA 4 from Steam due to its addiction to the service. Fallout 3 has freed itself from the clutches of this service. Let’s say millet to the beginning of GTA 4!
