Ah, The Enclave. They were the main 'bad guy' faction in both Fallout 2 and 3, and now, according to Bethesda's official social media channels, Fallout 76, too.
In a tweet on the official Fallout account, the developer confirmed that a secret underground bunker exists in the game where The Enclave are hiding out, somewhere in the Appalachia region. As always, The Enclave's mission is to re-build America in a pre-war image, and restore government control.
Just before the bombs fell, US leadership re-located to a remote Oil Rig off the coast of San Francisco.

It seems likely that The Enclave will be one of the factions available to join, much like the recently revealed Responders faction, given how NPC's don't exist in the Fallout 76 world, but it's sure going to be one of the more interesting ones, and I for one can't wait to see what quests, items and other benefits it brings.
The Fallout 76 Beta starts on October 30th, with a full release on November 14th.
