Governor Jim Justice stated that he believes the "unique lens of this video game" can help to show the world "what a gem West Virginia is". The tourism campaign will have promotional events, exclusive tours, and "Vault Boy" sightings around the state of West Virginia.
"I think the world was caught by surprise when Bethesda released the trailer with an eerily attractive post-apocalyptic West Virginia set to a slightly more futuristic version of our state's anthem", said Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby.
"Fallout 76" will indeed feature iconic locations from West Virginia, including the State Capitol, the Greenbrier Resort, West Virginia University, and a selection of other instantly-recognizable locales. However, one of the game's developers says he found West Virginia's landscape more alluring.
Watch out, everyone! A video game is trying to convince people to go outside!
Today Bethesda announced another way to jump into Fallout 76's world before the game launches. We're sure Bethesda will work on optimizing the game and providing a smoother performance for the beta and the initial launch.
"Players will come face to face with storied creatures pulled from West Virginia folklore, including the Mothman and Flatwoods Monster", the announcement reads.
"Our goal is to welcome each and every one of the game's players to Almost Heaven", said Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby. Players will get to check it all out for themselves with "Fallout 76" launches on November 14 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
