The popular video game series Fallout will feature the Shenandoah Valley’s Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park in their new expansion of Fallout ‘76 titled “Skyline Valley.”

The post-apocalyptic game takes place in a world after nuclear explosions and some of the areas teased in the release included the Northern Entrance to the Shenandoah National Park and features in park locations Stony Man, High Knob, Mary’s Rock, and the Historic Rapidan Camp.

The game’s lead designer Carl McKevitt toured Skyline Drive in 2023 to ensure an accurate depiction of the area and visited some of the featured locations.

In the expansion map, players are tasked with creating trade routes along Skyline Drive, making friends or foes of the locals, and fighting off a trio of supersized robots.

Skyline Valley was released yesterday by Bethesda Softworks located in Rockville, Maryland and is available on PC, X-Box, and Playstation.

Warren County Fire and Rescue reports that two Firefighters were injured while battling the Acton Street fire in Front Royal June 12.

The pair were both transported to the hospital for heat related illness treated and released.

No other injuries were reported in the fire.

Warren County Fire and Rescue answered the call of a dwelling on fire in the 400 block of Acton Street just past noon.

On arrival firefighters found a 2-story single family dwelling with flames visible.

Firefighters began their interior fire suppression while confirming no one was inside.

A second alarm was sounded, and 2 more engines were added to the fire fight.

The two occupants of the house were not home at the time of the fire, but they are being assisted by the American Red Cross as the home was severely damaged.

Firefighters remained on the scene for approximately two hours with the cause of the fire yet to be determined.
