Fallout 76 is the biggest Fallout game yet, with a world several times larger than Fallout 4‘s. Now, Bethesda has released the game’s world map to prove it.

Portions of the map had already been unveiled, pieced together, and pored over by fans, but this is the first time we’ve seen the entire document at once. Most locations aren’t labeled on the map beyond their icons, but there are still a few notable spots that can be picked out. Vault 76, where the story begins, can be seen in the northwest, greener portion of the map. Those familiar with West Virginia will be able to start tracing locations on the map back to their real world counterparts, such as the Mothman Museum and the Greenbrier Resort.

While you’ll see human cities on the map, you won’t see any humans. Bethesda has said that there won’t be any human NPCs in the game at all, in order to help make other players stand out against the waves of irradiated enemies in the game. It’ll be interesting, then, to go to some of West Virginia’s most famous towns and monuments without seeing the presence of the people who built them, and to see how their absence might affect the world.

Fallout 76 launches on November 14th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. A beta will open in October for all those who pre-ordered the game.
