John Denver’s ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ was the perfect song to introduce us to Fallout 76. Now you’ll be able to download Bethesda’s cover of the hit song on iTunes.
We're rebuilding America – and the world – for the better with @Habitat_Org! Starting July 4th, visit iTunes to get the #Fallout76 cover of "Country Roads” as heard in the announcement trailer. 100% of our proceeds will go to funding Habitat for Humanity! https://t.co/KlZ42DYcH9 pic.twitter.com/MrXNmfKmcd

As you can see from the tweet shown above, all proceeds from the ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ cover will go directly to the charity Habitat For Humanity. As a non-profit organization, Habitat For Humanity builds and produces affordable housing for people around the world. Along with profits from the track, Bethesda has donated $100,000 to the charity organization. The longtime developer also put out this statement:
“In the spirit of Fallout 76 and global rebuilding, we’re proud to team up with Habitat for Humanity—a global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the US and in more than 70 countries, to advance the vision that everyone deserves a decent place to call home,”
Fallout 76 is an “entirely online” action RPG where dozens of other players will be on the same server at the same time. Although the game is online only, you will still be able to complete quests solo or with friends.
The hot-topic in gaming right now has been the inclusion of cross-play in popular titles like Fortnite and Rocket League. Bethesda has stated that this is something they would love to have in Fallout 76 but Sony may sidetrack those plans.
The song is credited to Copilot Music and Sound and you can buy it for $1 on iTunes now. Copilot and Sound also worked on numerous Bethesda titles such as DOOM, Dishonored, and Fallout 4: Nuka World.
