‘Fallout 76’ Partners With West Virginia Tourism Department Ahead of Release

Fallout 76 will not support mods until December 2019, will only be available on private servers

Fallout 76 developer Bethesda is partnering with the West Virginia Tourism Office to promote the upcoming game, which takes place in a post-apocalyptic version of the state.

Today Bethesda announced another way to jump into Fallout 76's world before the game launches.

It's big, but you don't have to believe me, you can check out the full Fallout 76 map below. Like Destiny and The Division's worlds before it, post-nuclear West Virginia is a sprawling, always-online space filled up to the eyeballs with features.

The Allegheny Mountains have been reenvisioned as the "Savage Divide" in Fallout 76. The West Virginia Tourism Office commissioner Chelsea Ruby said the "Fallout 76" version of John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" is evocative of an "eerily beautiful" West Virginia after the disastrous apocalypse that befell humanity.

"It's finally time the rest of the world sees what a gem West Virginia is".

The West Virginia government is excited about their state's inclusion in the game.

Fans across the world have spent countless hours watching trailers for the game and excerpts of gameplay, speculating about which parts of the state will be featured, with dozens of locations and folklore monsters (like Mothman) already named.

Watch out, everyone! A video game is trying to convince people to go outside!

"Our goal is to welcome and and every one of the game's players to Almost Heaven". Recent comments from Bethesda marketing man suggest it may be one while year before they add support for mods to their survival sandbox, which is a fair while. But with the game's release now only a month away, the countdown clock's ticking on all that speculation: Fallout 76 emerges November 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
