fallout please stand by

Fallout fans rejoice! Just a short while ago, Bethesda tweeted a link to this page here, where there is a 24 hour countdown timer and the words “please stand by”. This image and text is well known to Fallout Fans, especially as it is shown when the game Fallout 3 starts up.

What is being teased? Most likely Fallout 4. Fans have been waiting for the Fallout sequel for quite a long while now, Fallout 3 was released in Ocotber 2008, and Obsidian made Fallout: New Vegas was released in November 2010. Some other clues can be found in the website’s source code:


PA system failure has occured.
Shutdown of the Masterbrain has been authorized and all sensitive materials have been removed for security purposes.
Please attempt re-access. Have a pleasant day.

The words Fallout 4 can also be found in the source code:
fallout 4 tease

So now we wait, and if you are a massive Fallout fan like I am, hopefully without losing your minds.  Less than 24 hours until we see if Fallout 4 is revealed or if Bethesda has something else Fallout related up their sleeves. It’s somewhat surprising that Bethesda didn’t wait to tease the game until E3, but hopefully this means the game might actually have a demo playable at E3. See you tomorrow once the countdown hits 0!
