Fallout 76 was officially announced at E3 2018 as a complete online experience for which everyone is desperately waiting to get their hands on. A Fallout 76 fan meetup was organized which turned out to be more successful than everyone hoped for.
The fan meet was held at the Camden Park, Huntington to celebrate the launch of the upcoming Fallout 76 based in West Virginia. The event was full of hundreds of Fallout fans of all ages who gathered together to meet other fellow Fallout fans and to show appreciation to the Bethesda for making the game.
The reason for the event taking place in West Virginia is due to the game including the locations of West Virginia which was seen in the trailer with the song “Take Me Home, Country Roads”.
The trailer has shown us the modeled locations after West Virginia University’s Woodburn Hall, the New River Gorge Bridge, State Capitol and Camden Park where the fan meet-up took place.
Chris Barker, the organizer of the event said the event was for everyone to show their love for the game and West Virginia. He also mentioned that the idea of meetup started with just 15 people and suddenly nearly 1,500 were ready to attend the event.
People joined the meetup dressing as their favorite characters from the game. The event included giveaways, door prizes, group pictures and a costume contest for the best representation of the character from the game.
Barker then went on to say that the Fallout has the best community. West Virginia Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby says that campaign “Almost Heaven, West Virginia” has gained a lot of attraction and the game has played a great role in it.
