In another case where evidence is mounting up in favor of a Fallout 4 reveal at this year’s E3 conference, a special teaser site has gone live earlier this morning.
All attempts to link to Bethsoft.com redirects to http://fallout.bethsoft.com, an odd choice for a game title that hasn’t been announced in any official capacity. While nothing is on the Bethesda page save for a doomsday clock that’s ticking down to a 7AM PST reveal on June 3rd, a quick glance at the source code offers some insight into the project. The following code confirms a (tentative) ESRB and PEGI rating of M/18, respectively. Assets also point to placeholder icons for PC/Mac, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox one, leading to belief that this project will indeed head to last-gen consoles as well as the current order of systems.
Other little easter eggs are hidden in the page’s source code, including the following message:
PA system failure has occurred.
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.
Not much else is referenced in the source code, save for pre-order information and referencing a release date that is sure to be announced sometime in the next two weeks, whether it’s once the doomsday countdown expires or during Bethesda’s pre-E3 press conference. Either way, this could be some exciting news that Fallout 4 fans have been waiting for for a long time.
