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.
