Bethesda Details The Map Size of Fallout 76
Bethesda released new details about Fallout 76's map this weekend, which is set in a post-apocalyptic West Virginia. With this game being the first multiplayer one of the series, Bethesda is taking a new approach to several traditional game mechanics, one of them being how players reference their map.
The layout of the map is shown above, but here's a link to a larger version. You can already see a few waypoints shown on the map, though there's probably more to explore when the game launches.
Bethesda claims the size of game's map is roughly four times that of the one in Fallout 4. With Fallout 76 being a multiplayer game, the massive map size makes sense due more people running around. It'll take you quite a bit of time to cover this entire map on foot, even with friends.
If you plan on getting the game, get used to the sight of this map as this is the final version of what you're going to use in the game. That's right, your character is going to get a physical map instead of looking at their Pip-Boy. This takes an entirely different turn than what previous Fallout games have used.
You'll get the chance to check it out for yourself prior to the game's release, if you attend the available beta. Check out the beta's dates here and figure out when you have the opportunity to jump online.
There's still time to pre-order Fallout 76 before it releases by heading over to Betheda's main website. The game releases on November 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Let us know what you think of not having to use your Pip-Boy to look at the map below in the comments. Are you excited for Fallout 76?
