The Fallout series has always been one that takes players to a variety of different locations around the United States and Fallout 76 is no different, this time taking place in the hills of post-apocalyptic West Virginia.

The state of West Virginia is taking advantage of this newfound spotlight that is being shed on their homeland and has partnered with Bethesda to promote Fallout 76 leading up to its release. The official West Virginia Tourism Office says that over the coming weeks, they will be releasing new information on promotional events and tours that they’ll be having around the state in addition to “Vault Boy sightings.”

West Virginia’s own governor, Jim Justice, even commented on this partnership and gave the following quote.

“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.”

A partnership between like this is kind of unprecedented but it’s also cool to see how prideful and happy residents of West Virginia are to showcase their homeland in Fallout 76. Our own Noah Buttner reported something similar in his recent preview for Fallout 76 and said that all of the inhabitants he spoke to during his time in the state seemed so excited for this game to feature their home.

Fallout 76 is due out next month on November 14 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you still haven’t pre-ordered the game yet, you can run over to Amazon and do so.
