Nope, you can't run Fallout 4 without Steam. Bethesda games like Fallout 4 require Steam to activate and play. It's part of the DRM (Digital Rights Management) thing to keep games legit and in check. So, install Steam, grab Fallout 4, and enjoy the wasteland!

Short answer: No. Long answer: Still no, but worth mentioning that even though you need Steam to run Fallout 4, once it's set up, the game's all yours to explore and enjoy. Bethesda went all-in with Steam integration for a reason, folks.

Can confirm, tried to get around it but no dice. Fallout 4 needs Steam to run, which ain't too bad 'cause Steam keeps your games updated and lets you snag some cool DLC. Plus, playing legit means no weird glitches or bans. Happy gaming!
