While Bethesda is going all out in their embrace of West Virginia in the latest for the Fallout franchise, Fallout 76, their cover of the timeless classic “Country Roads” by John Denver has been a signature piece in their promotional material for the game since its reveal. Now, they’ve announced more details for the cover.
The cover will be hitting iTunes next month, on the birth of our nation – July 4th. Furthermore, all proceeds from the song will be donated to Habitat for Humanity, a global nonprofit that focuses on producing affordable housing for all 50 states within the union, as well as other countries.
Bethesda also teased “additional partnerships” with the charity, to be announced leading up to the worldwide release of the game, where you’ll also be rebuilding America – only after the nuclear holocaust.
Fallout 76 is launching on November 14th across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
