Bethesda’s upcoming Fallout title, Fallout 76, is just around the corner, and more details about the game’s map have just been unveiled. Fans are most excited about the size of the Fallout 76 map, and it has been leaked!
The map, which Bethesda claims is four times the size of Fallout 4’s map, has surfaced online and it looks pretty damn huge tbf.
We now know it will be known as the Appalachia map, and this ginormous world is one we can’t wait to explore. It seems we’re not the only ones, as Twitter really seems to appreciate the changes Bethesda has made map-wise, compared to its previous hits.
I’m glad the map in Fallout 76 looks actually good.
Skyrim’s and Fallout’s map thus far has been pretty unideal.

Based on the real-life Appalachian region in West Virginia, Fallout fans have discovered lots of map locations that mirror the real world, including Cranberry Bog, which fans believe is a reference to the Cranberry Glades bog IRL.
Bethesda also showed-off the Guitar Sword, which looks fun as all hell.

Fallout 76 will release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year, but if you’re a PC gamer you won’t be able to download it from Steam.
A spokesperson for Bethesda has reportedly told PC Gamer that “both the B.E.T.A and the launch, will be available only via Bethesda.net, not on Steam.”
Steam is the biggest PC gaming platform out there, with millions of users prioritising Steam’s easy-to-use functionality and collective games library rather than individually downloading titles from their developer’s website.
Bethesda deciding not to release the upcoming Fallout game on the PC gaming platform is a risky move, as it could directly affect the number of PC sales the game achieves.
