Really Dedicated Fallout 76 Fans Are Making a Full Pre-Release World Map
Put on your speculation spectacles and get out your compasses because a bunch of folks have already made a map of Fallout 76, and it's not even out yet.
A new project has taken Twitter by storm this week in the form of #Fallout76…which has led to the creation of a full-fledged, fanmade map of what might be the in-game map of Fallout 76.
You know, the game that isn’t coming out until November 14, 2018? Yeah, that game. We have a map for it now.
And it’s a pretty darn good looking map so far. Dedicated fans have been busy scouring all the trailers, gameplay clips, and other promotional materials released by Bethesda for Fallout 76 in the hopes of assembling a full map of Fallout 76’s world before the game even releases.
Bethesda has not shown detailed look at the game’s map just yet but has highlighted six key regions; Toxic Valley, The Mire, Savage Divide, Cranberry Bog, Ash Heap, and The Forest. Fans have been able to use this rough map alongside stills of an in-progress version of the map taken from one of the documentaries to assemble an unofficial fan-made map of Fallout 76.
It’s on its sixth iteration, which you can check out in the tweet below. Many locations marked on the map are still speculative, but most all of them are based on real-world locations. Some have been confirmed, like Charleston, while others have been added to the map based on what fans speculate might end up in the game.
Fans have also noted that Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 76 will be approximately four times larger than Fallout 4, which puts it at around 15.28 sq. miles. That’s just a wee bit smaller than the actual state of West Virginia, but game-world distances are obviously fudged to account for a different day-night cycle and reasonable travel times.
Fallout 76 will release worldwide on November 14th, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it can already be pre-ordered on Amazon.
Update 6 for the #Fallout76 map. Now with more confirmation and extra speculation. Lots of new offical locations added in and more likely locations with help from a lot of different people. pic.twitter.com/n3FdB6wbzp
