Fans of Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG franchise have collaborated to piece together a mock-up of Fallout 76’s map.
Their endeavours have been aided by Bethesda Softworks, which has provided tantalising clues about the forthcoming game’s map. Such as this GIF of a traversal around part of the map which the publisher tweeted. The company also helped Noclip to create a “making of” documentary, which you can see below (at about 8 minutes 30 seconds, the developers show various map iterations).
Using those sources and collaborating via Reddit, the Fallout fan-base has created several speculative maps – now up to their sixth iteration. Bethesda has confirmed that various locations will feature in the game, such as Morgantown, Charleston and Lewisburg; according to the Redditors, Vault 76 itself is likely to be situated just to the west of Morgantown.
Bethesda has stated that Fallout 76’s map will be roughly four times the size of that of Fallout 4. It will be fascinating to see how accurate the fans’ rendition of its map turns out to be when the game arrives on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 14. Until then, you might want to keep an eye on its website.
