Bethesda Softworks start countdown on official website.
We have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for an official announcement from Bethesda Softworks on another installment of the Fallout series and finally it appears the time has come.
Many have been predicting an announcement at this year's E3 conference, where Bethesda are hosting their own evening, but it seems they have decided to tease the game a little sooner.
A couple of hours ago Bethesda uploaded a new holding page on the official Fallout website simply stating the words Please Stand By with a countdown clock which is currently set to end at 14:00 (BST). The clock and statement are set on top of the classic Fallout loading screen so it appears that the wait is over.
Even more intriguing, if that's even possible is the inclusion of some hidden details in the source code of the page, this reads as follows;
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.
Could this be a hint at the plot for the next game in the series?
Most speculation for the plot of the game has pointed towards Boston as setting and more specifically the mysterious Institute. Could this installments protagonist be an android? could the Masterbrain be a central computer that controls you and your fellow androids?
Only time will tell but to say that we are excited would be a huge understatement, in fact if excitement was a weapon we would have gone nuclear by now.
We will of course keep you updated with any further announcement, expect a full story of tomorrow's announcement as soon as possible.
