Tourism officials promoting W.Va. through 'Fallout' game
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Tourism officials are hoping to promote West Virginia to a wider audience with the launch of Bethesda Game Studios’ “Fallout 76” video game.
Tourism officials heralded the game’s worldwide debut Wednesday with an event at the West Virginia Capitol in Charleston.
The latest installment in the post-apocalyptic “Fallout” series is a prequel based in the Mountain State.
The state tourism website has an interactive map of West Virginia locations included in the game.
Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby says West Virginia “has never had a tourism opportunity quite like this.”
