'Fallout 76': Map Name Revealed

Yesterday we shared how Bethesda was taking being a bard to the next level with this hilarious looking Guitar Sword that's an actual weapon in Fallout 76. We were so consumed by being able to shred our enemies while shredding on the guitar that we totally missed that they revealed the name of the map: Appalachia.

We already knew that the game was taking place in West Virginia (how could we not, that song will forever be stuck in our heads) but we didn't know what the new Wasteland was called. No longer the Commonwealth or even the Capital Wasteland, the Appalachia map will take fans of the survival RPG to new heights - literally.

It makes sense, given the location and the Appalachian Trail that leads into it. Still, one more piece to the bigger puzzle before the game finally launches this November!

In case you missed the earlier reveal of the Guitar Sword:

Fellow Vault Dwellers were all about this weird weapon reveal:

That would be one badass bard. But seriously, it looks hilarious and to be perfectly honest? Resourceful. Which makes sense, you've got to be a little resourceful when rebuilding after a nuclear fallout. Now the real question is ... when can we get the band back together?

It seems like the journey will be a magical one, at least if you take Bethesda's Pete Hines' joke seriously regarding character customization:

Still, we are ready. It's a big first bringing the franchise into the realm of online and we're looking forward to seeing how it all works out!
