Fallout 76 and West Virginia Team Up for a Tourism Campaign

Visit before the bombs drop!

If you’ve been following Fallout 76 at all, you’ll know the game takes place in sunny, post-apocalyptic West Virginia. And with hype around the game finally growing now that people are willing to put aside their trepidation regarding the multiplayer aspects of the title, the state of West Virginia itself has decided that it can take advantage of this upcoming release and introduce people to their lovely landscapes and cities before they’re annihilated in a nuclear holocaust.

To that end, Bethesda and the state of West Virginia are teaming up to promote a tourism campaign that will show gamers and non-gamers alike everything the best Virginia has to offer – but don’t take my word for it. Here’s the non-biased opinion of Jim Justice, the governor of West Virginia:

“It’s finally time the rest of the world sees what a gem West Virginia is. For years, I’ve been saying we have it all: beautiful scenery, the best people you could ask for and more. And now, we get to share a piece of that with people all over the world through the unique lens of this video game.”

Which certainly sounds lovely! A lot more lovely than the press release, which reads:

"In the game, players will come face to face with storied creatures pulled from West Virginia folklore, including the Mothman and Flatwoods Monster. They’ll explore wild and varied terrain, from Appalachia’s lush forests and rolling mountains to oppressive swamps and post-nuclear ash heaps."

Charming. As for what kind of events and tours this promotion will entail, we’re not exactly sure, although apparently, people in West Virginia should keep their eyes peeled for Vault Boy, who will apparently be hiding at certain historic spots. But we’ll likely learn a bit more before November 14th, when the game finally launches for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
