A clever redditor has stitched together the Fallout 76 map from footage of the game released in various trailers throughout E3 2018. The redditor, who goes by the name Chiyuri, put together the map using background footage from the recently released Noclip documentary detailing the development of the game.
We already knew that Fallout 76 takes place in West Virginia (a land immortalised by the honeyed lyrics of John Denver), and that the new game would feature a map 4 times larger than Fallout 4’s. Until now, though, we had to rely on a few landmarks to try and guess exactly what the map would look like.
Between Fallout, Cyberpunk, and even a new Elder Scrolls, there’ll soon be plenty of new contenders for a spot on our list of the best RPGs.
There are a couple of gaps in the map, particularly around the southern edge, as well as a small gap in the east. For the most part, however, we get a high-quality look at Fallout 76’s setting, which seems to feature several different biomes. There’s the lush and verdant Forest to the West, but it’s flanked to the North and South by the Toxic Valley and the Ash Heap.
Running down the centre of the map (which you can check out on Reddit) is the Savage Divide, which gives way to The Mire and Cranberry Bog to the east of the map. It also gives us a look at some of Fallout 76’s locations, including major settlements of Charleston, Lewisburg, and Morgantown. The map also confirms the existence of an airport, a university, and a power station north of Harper’s Ferry.
You can check out an extended Fallout 76 trailer below, which also gives us a look at some of Fallout 76’s monsters, straight from West Virginian folklore.
The Fallout 76 release date is November 14, 2018. That means you haven’t got too long to wait until you can head into a brand-new Wasteland – and this time your friends can come with you.
