There are also monsters from West Virginian folklore, like the Mothman and Flatwoods Monster. In fact, several fan events have already taken place there. Of course, there's also a great look at how the multiplayer interface works, what the Perks system has been updated to, and how the combat works with the changes to the VATS system.

Bethesda Softworks and the West Virginia Tourism Office have partnered up to cross-promote each other, with the Mountain State debuting a "Fallout 76: Emerge and Explore West Virginia" website devoted to directing would-be lone wanderers toward the decidedly less risky, real-life locations the studio replicates in its sprawling, detailed game map.

"It's finally time the rest of the world sees what a gem West Virginia is", says West Virginia Governor Jim Justice; "For years, I've been saying we have it all: lovely scenery, the best people you could ask for and more".

Watch out, everyone! A video game is trying to convince people to go outside!

State officials said 285 people in Mexico Beach had refused to leave ahead of the hurricane despite a mandatory evacuation order. ABC News' Rob Marciano encountered stray kittens stranded in the storm zone following Hurricane Michael in Panama City, Florida.

The most recent game in the series generated more than $750 million within the first 24 hours of its retail launch in 2015, and West Virginia expects the new game to be an global sensation as well. The latest game is no different, and the state of West Virginia is now looking to use that setting to encourage tourism to the state.

"Our goal is to welcome each and every one of the game's players to Almost Heaven", said Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby. Like Destiny and The Division's worlds before it, post-nuclear West Virginia is a sprawling, always-online space filled up to the eyeballs with features.

You may get a chance soon, as a select number of Xbox One owners will get to try out Fallout 76 this weekend. "We believe this unique partnership has tremendous potential to bring folks to visit the Mountain State".
