MORGANTOWN — The recent launch of “Fallout 76,” an online action role-playing game developed by Bethesda Game Studios, has given players a glimpse of West Virginia — albeit a post-apocalyptic one.
Dubbed Appalachia, the open-world representation features recreations of some of the state’s most popular landmarks such as the Capitol, The Greenbrier, WVU’s own Woodburn Circle, New River Gorge Bridge and Camden Park. It also delve’s into West Virginian folklore, as gamers must battle mutated horrors inspired by legendary cryptids like the Mothman and the Flatwoods monster.
While the latest installment in the Fallout series has received mixed reviews for glitches and technical difficulties, it has nonetheless shone a light on the Mountain State that officials and many residents are embracing.
The West Tourism Office and Bethesda have teamed up and plan to announce promotional events, tours and Vault Boy sightings in coming weeks.
And fans in town will get the chance to celebrate Fallout and the state’s culture with a Fallout exhibit and concert Saturday at 123 Pleasant Street.
“This is a way to get the art community involved with the music community,” said organizer Brian Spragg, who is also the drummer for Beast Friend, one of the bands set to perform.
