Its the next Elder Scrolls but set way into the future where Tamriel has been devasted by nuclear war.

I would love this personally.

Fake or real, I think we should expect an announcement of a new Fallout game early 2014 at the latest. They have to have been working on that game for a long while now.

It's Fallout 4, and I welcome Bethesda in their attempt to make the same kind of progression that Skyrim had from Oblivion.

Also, when South Park flops Obsidian can make another superior psuedo-sequel with better writing and more balanced gameplay, but like 3x the bugs at launch.

I think Bethesda and Obsidian are on the same level when it comes to buggy games.

Fallout NE was a fucking mess when released, on a whole other level of buggy than Fallout 3. But the PS3 version of Skyrim was so fucking broken that I think I'll agree with you. Both fantastic developers, but neither can make a well-running game to save their life.

If this is real, I hope it's either a Fallout game with the design sensibilities of the original or WET 2.

Wait, is WET 2 gonna come out at some point? Please say yes.

#55 Posted by Ghostiet (5208 posts) -

Wake me up when Obsidian does Fallout: Detroit or whatever. I have no care for Bethesda's writing, and writing is too big a part of Fallout for me.

Rogue Warrior 2!

Whatever it is I hope they finally hired some good writers and quest designers. Maybe even evolved the combat a bit but that's just expecting too much I think.

So a step back, you mean? I don't know why you'd want a worse game, but that's just me. I personally want a good game.

#61 Posted by SarcasticMudcrab (146 posts) -

At no point was there not going to be a fallout 4, fake website or not.

#62 Edited by Icemo (640 posts) -

Fuck yeah! I don't care if the story is shitty, I just want to wander around for hundreds of hours looting every nook and cranny.

I actually thought Fallout 3's story was pretty okay..

God willing, the writing in Skyrim was laughably bad

Man, Fallout and Elder Scrolls are mighty boring.

#66 Posted by SteadyingMeat (1101 posts) -

So long as I don't have to enter a dungeon for 99 percent of the quests again, I'm happy in that regard.

#67 Edited by AndrewB (7436 posts) -

Yeah, let's build hype for a game everyone is so thoroughly hyped for already.

Actually, sure. That's just fine because it means Fallout 4 is far enough along to be starting the hype engine.

*Looks at source* Oh, also, it's going to be set in Bridgeport, CT (damn, there are too many Bridgeports to make that kind of a leap of faith).

Wait, Fall River. Makes CT slightly more likely. And apparently everyone else was already also thinking that way, with a quick Google search.

If this is true I might just cum in my pants. The PC versions of the Fallout games were my favourites of this last generation and I could not think of any other game that could make me happier.

#70 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4513 posts) -

That's some fallout ass fallout font.

Even the little radio sigil thingy looks super Fallout-y. I'm cautiously excited.

#71 Posted by YaveX5 (1 posts) -

That beeping nearly split my ear drum open, it HAS GOT to be Fallout 4! Just LOOK AT IT! IT HAS FALLOUT WRITTEN ALL OVER IT.

Graphically, Skyrim was a pretty good jump from Oblivion. I'd personally say it's really hard to go back and play Oblivion because the difference is so fucking jarring. The story was a pretty huge step back, though.

The site updated with a Vault-tec logo beneath the countdown clock.

Yeah, that's more or less what I meant. It did look pretty at times, from a distance, but everything else was a disaster, at least to me.

Looking in the source there are images from http://prepareforthefuture.com which is an official fallout site, so yeah new fallout probably.

Yeah the images did look like Fallout.

#77 Edited by zombiepenguin9 (526 posts) -

I've tinkered around in FO3, but never put any serious time into the series. Having played several Elder Scrolls games first, FO3 just felt too close to Oblivion for me to really dive in at the time. Hopefully FO4 will differentiate itself.

So it's confirmed now! Plus with the name of the site being survivor2299, this would suggest it takes place in the year 2299. That would be roughly 18 years after Fallout: New Vegas and 222 years after the Great War (COINCIDENCE??!). That's a pretty interesting year since that's right before the start of the 24th century. I reckon the plot would probably tie itself into a grand, world changing event prior to the turn of the century. I'm getting excited just thinking about it! :D

Yes, please. The Dark Brotherhood storyline in Skyrim ruined the rest of the game for me because it was so well-done that going back to "hello Dragonborn, I exist to make you do this thing" for the rest of the game was miserable. Fallout 3 and New Vegas were only slightly better in that regard.

It's even sadder to think that the Dark Brotherhood questline in Oblivion was way better than the one in Skyrim. For that matter, the Thieves guild end quest was also pretty spectacular in Oblivion - but at least that is somewhat entertaining in Skyrim and woe unto thee whom returneth the skeleton key in that last quest.

So much hate for the Gamebryo engine. That engine has been used in over a hundred games, most of which are not known for their buggyness. The common denominator when it comes to the broken ones is Bethesda, not Gamebryo.

Here's a list of games using Gamebryo up to 2012 (since Mobygames is pretty much busted at this point, and hasn't been regularly updated in quite a while, there are probably quite a few games that have been released since using the engine): http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/middleware-gamebryolightspeednetimmerse

i think is too early from Fallout 4 they have Elder scrolls online and Wolfenstien and The Eveil Within and all of them are coming in 2014 i think, so if they anounce Fallout 4 it could damage their ESO sales, Fallout 4 should be a nov/oct 2015 game

A subscription based MMO is going to struggle. Bethesda knows this and if anything I can see them pushing Fallout 4 to recoup the likely losses they will take on Elder Scrolls Online.

#86 Posted by ryanwhom (290 posts) -

I want it to be a new Fallout so Obsidian can get to work on a well written sequel.

#87 Edited by Dezztroy (768 posts) -

@fisk0: Yep. Gamebryo might not be the best engine out there, but the blame for Bethesda games always being half-broken definitely falls on Bethesda.

#89 Edited by eXists (131 posts) -

Finally a next-gen game... (hopefully)

Gonna disagree with you there. Oblivion's Dark Brotherhood was kind of neat, sure, but I didn't find it anything special. While Skyrim's Dark Brotherhood loses a lot of momentum in its third act, the very first scene from it and all the Cicero stuff blew me away in terms of writing and atmosphere.

Lol, are you serious? The Dark Brotherhood questline in Skyrim was fucking terrible. They all were. Oblivion's was so much better, SO much better. From the party quest where you had to have all the guests turn on each other, fucking murdering that dark elf in the prison that taunts you at the start of the game. Finding out that the lucky lady statue in Bravil housed the tomb of The Night Mother. I was so disappointed with Skyrim's faction quests. Not only were they bad, but it took like 6 hours to finish a whole faction questline. The only decent faction that is even remotely engaging is the thieves guild, and even that doesn't compare to Oblivion's.

Fuck, i played Oblivion years ago, and i still fondly remember the time i had with it. From the quirky characters, to the absurd quests. Also, the painting you had to jump into to save some famous artist who went missing, you went in a painted landscape to go search for him. Genius.

Man, Oblivion even had great side quests. I have no fucking recollection what Skyrim was about, and i only played it like a year ago. Everything about that game was just bland and forgettable.

You should be ashamed. I'm droppin' the mic.

@excast: yeah but saying that fallout is coming so fast makes people just wait for that and not try ESO, also it shows how much

Bethesda belives in this games

(already there are a lot of top games in the spring so it will be hard for ESO to get 60$ box + 15$ for a secound month sub)
